Black Walnut Hull Elixir

information from

Black Walnut Hull or Juglans Nigra is, just as it sounds, the hull of the black walnut tree. The Black Walnut tree grows in the eastern US and parts of Canada, and while easy to grow, it is not plentiful.
What is Black Walnut?

Black Walnut has been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years. It has been used throughout history for treatment of intestinal problems, snakebites, open wounds, ulcers, scurvy, and as one of the most effective laxatives available. Because of its dark color, the outer hull is also used as a dye and was used in brown hair dye until the early 1900s. Black walnut is a good source of beta-carotene, acids, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, silicon, zinc, tannin, B-vitamins, and vitamin C.

Today, black walnut hulls are used to help with many conditions. It is known to be a gentle and effective laxative. Black walnut is known as an effective anti-viral and is used to fix warts, which are caused by viruses. Black walnut is an anti-fungus and has been used to fight herpes, cold sores, athlete’s foot, and Candida. It has been used as an antiseptic to combat illness like sexually transmitted infections and malaria and can be used to treat acne.
How it is used:

According to scientific labs:

    “Black Walnut Hull may help to lower blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels and is believed to burn up toxins and fatty materials while balancing blood sugar levels.
    The tannins in Black Walnut Hull (and leaves) possess an astringent quality that is thought to shrink the sweat glands and reduce excessive sweating.  The herb is said to help control menorrhagia, the excessive loss of blood during periods. It is also used to control diarrhea.
    Black Walnut Hull is considered a tonic that aids digestion and the intestinal system. It helps to relieve colic, heartburn and flatulence.  As a cholagogue, Black Walnut stimulates the flow of bile into the intestines and is thought to ease bilious colic and pain in the spleen.”

Perhaps Black Walnut’s most well-known property is its ability to fight intestinal parasites. It is a well documented vermifuge that is effective at helping the body rid itself of parasites. As a laxative, it expels parasites as part of its cleansing of the body and the high tannin and juglone content is thought to oxygenate the blood and kill parasites. Black walnut is effective against pinworm, ringworm, tapeworm, and other intestinal parasites.

Black walnuts, and in particular black walnut hulls that are harvested green, are a well known vermifuge and are considered a premier treatment for pinworms, tapeworms, hookworms and other intestinal parasites.


Like intestinal worms, candida overgrowth is another common, yet rarely diagnosed and debilitating health problem affecting many people

Most people have some of the candida albicans yeast in their digestive systems and other areas of the body. Problems start though when intestinal conditions deteriorate with a diet high in simple sugars, drinking chlorinated water, prolonged stress and especially antibiotic use.

Intestinal candidiasis is an overgrowth of the candida fungus, which can actually weaken the walls of your intestines and release toxins into your bloodstream. This plays havoc with your immune system and can manifest in a whole range of baffling symptoms which can be very difficult for your doctor to diagnose.

Unfortunately, the common prescription of more antibiotics will often make things much worse. What is needed is a significant change of diet and a treatment plan, followed by effective probiotics to help normalize the intestinal environment and bring the overgrowth under control.

Studies on compounds found in black walnut extract have shown it to be as effective against candida as commercial antifungal treatments like selenium sulfide and zinc undecylenate.

It is believed that the naphthoquinone juglone, high levels of astringent tannins and other compounds in black walnut treatments change the intestinal environment to make it unfavorable for the candida albicans fungus and other harmful parasites.


Black walnut candida treatmentThese same antifungal properties make black walnut hull tincture a popular treatment for athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch and other fungal infections of the skin.

To treat these fungal skin conditions the black walnut tincture can be applied externally to the affected areas and is often reported in online forums to be more effective for those who try them than pharmaceutical preparations.

Always patch test any preparations like this on the skin of your inner arm for several hours before using them to test for allergic reaction.

Skin Conditions

Black walnut benefits may include helping to treat many other skin conditions and problems like acne, eczema and psoriasis.

For acne, the tincture is taken both internally and sometimes apply diluted externally as a skin treatment. If applying it to your skin, it would once again be best to test it first for your own sensitivity.

To do this, mix a few drops in warm water and dab a small area in an inconspicuous part of your face with a cotton ball and leave it for an hour or two to see if you have any reaction.

While there are reports online of success with using black walnut extract internally for eczema and psoriasis, the tinctures extracted in alcohol could be too harsh for these skin conditions.

It may be gentler and more effective to mix a small amount of black walnut hull powder with these avocado oil treatments for psoriasis and eczema. Especially with these conditions, make sure you patch test well first, perhaps even overnight, before using them on potentially sensitive areas.

Warts, Cold Sores and Herpes

Warts are growths on the skin caused by a viral infection. Black walnut hull extract is often reported to make warts shrivel up and die.

It is applied directly to the wart daily and covered with tape. This may take several weeks but many people find their warts starts shrinking and eventually die and fall off with this treatment.

There have also been cases discussed in online forums of multiple warts shrinking and disappearing after regularly taking these black walnut powder capsules. The suggested dosage was 2500 mg of capsules for breakfast and again with dinner.

Cold sores are also treated and their healing speeded up with black walnut hull tincture by painting them with a cotton wool bud several times a day. Due to the high natural iodine content, this would be visible so may be best done on a day off or before bed.

Herpes simplex type 2 is a more virulent outbreak of the HSV virus around the genitals. While the tincture or powder made into a paste may help speed up the healing of herpes blisters, it is reported that regularly taking black walnut as a supplement can greatly reduce the frequency of outbreaks.

Stop Sweating

In one of the more unusual benefits of black walnut, it is known to help reduce excessive sweating. The high levels of astringent tannins contained in the hulls are believed to have an effect on overactive sweat glands and decrease the amount of sweat they produce.

Digestive Benefits

Alongside its powerful anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties for your gastrointestinal tract, black walnut has other beneficial effects on your digestive system.

Black walnut hull is said to tone and heal inflamed intestinal tissue, as well as improving the environment of the digestive tract for more effective assimilation and elimination.

It is for this reason that black walnut is unusually considered a treatment for both constipation and diarrhea.

Sore Throat Treatment

You can gargle with black walnut extract diluted in water to treat a sore throat, tonsillitis and mouth sores. Once again, the astringent tannins and naturally antiseptic iodine provide the health benefits.

Cardiovascular and Diabetes Benefits

In a study entitled The Effects of Daily Black Walnut Consumption on Blood Lipid Levels, black walnuts were shown to reduce LDL cholesterol (the dangerous kind) for men by over 4%, even further than the more common English walnuts in the same study. The researchers also noted that no weight gain was associated with their consumption.

Black walnuts have a similar nutritional profile to English walnuts and the same diabetes and cardiovascular benefits for lowering high blood pressure and reducing blood sugar levels can be gained from eating them.

Safe and Effective Source For Iodine

Concerns over the Fukushima nuclear power plant explosion in Japan in March 2011 continue to grow. China began reporting traces of radioactive material along its coastline on March 27, 2011. An article in Discovery News dated March 28, 2011 reports that radioactive dust and other materials are falling onto farm crops and other vegetation. Highly radioactive water is seeping into the Pacific Ocean. A Reuters report published on March 29, 2011 stated that radioactive iodine in trace amounts were being detected in Eastern Russia. As the supply of kelp and potassium iodide dwindle across the United States, many people are searching for safe and natural alternatives for iodine. One such alternative is black walnut tincture.

Black walnut tincture is not only high in a bio-assimilable, plant form of iodide, but it also has anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic, and fungicidal properties. The amount of iodine in black walnut tincture is so high that it can be used as a substitute for iodine antiseptics. Black walnut tincture works as an iodine antiseptic because it is an oxidizing agent. This means it acts as an electrolyte which upsets the cellular balance of any bacteria or other microbial it comes in contact with.

In his blog, master herbalist Dr. Richard Schulze mentions using black walnut tincture with his students during the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown. Dr. Schulze says he suggested that patients be wiped down with iodine tincture or black walnut tincture. The iodine in the two tinctures was absorbed into the body through the skin. Testing later showed that the patients who had been "painted" with black walnut or iodine tinctures were just as protected against radiationexposure as the patients who took potassium iodide (SSKI). Simply wiping a small amount of black walnut or iodine tincture on a knee cap or the palm of one hand was enough to meet the body's need for iodine, according to Dr. Schulze.


Numerous studies have found juglone, a cytotoxic compound found in walnuts, and most predominately in black walnuts, to have anticancer properties. Juglone has been demonstrated to lead to cancer cell death by both apoptosis and necrosis (Juglone, a naphthoquinone from walnut, exerts cytotoxic and genotoxic effects…).

As usual, the cancer industry seems uninterested in natural treatments that can’t be patented and real human studies are unlikely. While it’s not the place of a website like this to give advice on life-threatening diseases like cancer, I’d personally thoroughly researched all the available options, including those that can’t be patented.

Black walnuts are also rich in powerful polyphenols, omega-3 fats and melatonin. All of which have properties that may help protect you from developing cancer.

Dr. Huda Clark

Known as Dr. Clark’s Cancer Curing Recipe from the book, The Cure For All Cancers the 18 day Herbal Parasite Cleanse uses the three herbs, Black Walnut Hull, Wormwood, and Cloves. It is Dr. Clark’s belief that the three herbs rid the immune system of nearly 100 varieties of parasites so the body can cure itself of cancer and other diseases. Add to it daily zapping with a Hulda Clark Zapper, and you pretty much have the whole immunity boosting program found in her book. The theory is, without the burden of germs, bacteria, viruses, and parasites, the immune system can focus primarily on the cancer or other disease, and have a better chance of winning. The human body provides the cure; the herbs and zapper cleanse the body so it can perform the miracle of healing for you.

I personally believe supporting the immune system works wonders, and I share the wealth of information with my family members who are open to natural approaches toward health. I’m not alone. It seems that Big Pharma is involved in many studies involving the medicinal chemical found in Black Walnut Hull known as Juglone. Because Juglone can be separated from Black Walnut Hulls and made into Juglone pills and topical creams they are willing to research what ancient history has known for centuries: Black Walnut Hull has anti-cancer properties just as Dr. Clark advised so long ago. Check out the links below for details on several recent medical studies involving Juglone:

“Anticancer activity and mechanism of juglone on human cervical carcinoma”

“Anti-proliferative effect of Juglone… on human leukemia cell…”

“Juglone can cause ultrastructural changes of human liver cancer…”

“…juglone may be a potential candidate of drug for androgen-sensitive prostate cancer”

American Cancer Society says: “Of interest, small studies in the lab have suggested that a compound called juglone, which is present in black walnut, may have some antitumor activity. However, studies have not been completed to find out if juglone can help prevent cancer in humans.”

Gotta wonder what is stopping them from completing those studies.
