Colon/Parasite Cleanse Tincture: An anti-fungal, anti-paracitic, digestive cleanser.
One of the key benefits of Black Walnut Hulls are their ability to expel various kinds of worms and parasites that live in the intestines. The primary active constituent in Black Walnut is a “naphthoquinone”, known as juglone. Juglone is a natural herbicide that exerts an inhibitory effect on certain enzymes needed for metabolic function. It is thought that the high tannin content is also responsible for the anti-parasitic properties of Black Walnut, helping to eliminate microbes from the large intestine. The high tannin and juglone content is also thought to oxygenate the blood which can kill parasites and working as a laxative, it expels parasites as part of its cleansing of the body.
Intestinal Candidiasis is an overgrowth of the Candida fungus, which can actually weaken the walls of the intestines and release toxins into the bloodstream. This plays havoc with the immune system and can manifest in a whole range of baffling symptoms which can be very difficult to diagnose. Black Walnut being powerfully anti-fungal, makes it a Candida killer. A study conducted at the University of Mississippi in the 1990’s showed it was just as effective, if not more effective. It prevents Candida from growing and spreading due to its inhibitory effect on enzymes in the yeast that are needed for metabolic function.
Apart from expelling nasty parasites, fungus and bacteria that can interfere with digestion, Black Walnut promotes healthy digestion and gastrointestinal health. It encourages bowel regularity due to a gentle laxative effect and healthy bile flow. Black Walnut 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. It is also effective against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) – a bacteria that is responsible for the majority of ulcers that occur in the stomach.
In one of the more unusual benefits of Black Walnut is its ability to reduce excessive sweating. The high levels of astringent tannins contained in the hulls are believed to have an effect on overactive sweat glands to decrease the amount of sweat they produce.
