For medicinal purposes, black walnut hulls are best known as a parasite treatment, but they have many other potential health benefits. Special compounds, including juglone, tannins, and natural iodine in these powerful nuts, and particularly green black walnut hulls, make them not only an effective anti-parasitic, but also a potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, fungicide and intestinal cleanser. Black walnut is used to treat ringworm, yeast and candida infections and is an excellent support agent for harmful organism cleansing. Let’s break down each of these components…
Juglone is toxic to many plant species which is why you will not find many plants growing within several yards of a black walnut tree. In the case of many things in nature, it is ironic that this defensive action for the tree has been redirected into healing powers and juglone is believed to be effective against harmful organisms. Many natural health practitioners recommend juglone as an important part of harmful organism cleansing.
Tannins are believed to support harmful organism cleansing and even help with blood disorders and stress. Plants produce natural compounds to help defend against insects and other harmful organisms. These compounds are called tannins.
Iodine is required to produce thyroid hormones; iodine also supports harmful organism cleansing by affixing itself to harmful organisms and annihilating them. Black walnut hull is an excellent source of iodine.

The Parasite Problem
Did you know that according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 4 people living on this planet is infected with one or more parasites? This is something many might assume is more of a third world country problem, but with our world becoming more and more interconnected through travel and immigration, the parasite issue is becoming more prevalent in developed countries. The United States, for example, has millions of people that suffer from some sort of parasitic infection. Parasites like tapeworms, roundworms, pinworms and many others are a serious, if often neglected and undiagnosed health problem.
How does a person contract a Parasite?
It is much easier than you might think. These harmful organisms may enter our bodies through contaminated water or food (particularly under cooked pork, beef and fish), mosquito bites, touching pets and other animals or any infected surface and then touching your nose or mouth.

How to Take Black Walnut Hull
Black Walnut Hull is one of the main ingredients in our Detox Formula. We have selected this ingredient because of it’s ability to rid the body of parasites and to cleanse the digestive tract as well. It is best to take this formula first thing in the morning on an empty stomach so there is no food in the digestive tract. Ideally, the second dose should be taken a few hours after a light dinner, again because it works best if there is no food in the digestive tract.
