Black Walnut has been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years. Black walnut is native to the Eastern part of North America.
Traditionally Black walnut has been used to treat parasitic conditions. 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.
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.
