Besides being one of the most effective herbal laxative remedies and also being rich in Vitamin C, black walnut hulls have a long history in herbal medicine. Pliny the Elder, the Roman naturalist, talked about their healing power in the first century A.D. Seventeenth-century herbalist Nicholas Culpeper prescribed walnut to draw poisonous venom from snake and spider bites. It was the Native Americans, however, who first used black walnut hulls as a laxative and as a treatment for eliminating parasites in the intestine. This use, as a laxative, is how it is most commonly implemented today. But its use as both an anti-pathogenic and anti-parasitic, may be its most important roles.

Bactericidal and Virucidal Effects of Black Walnut Hulls
One study from 2012 screened plant quinones for inhibiting effects on the bacterial fire blight pathogen. The most active compound discovered in walnut hulls was juglone. As the study said, “juglone has a potent and specific bactericidal effect on E. amylovora…Juglone is a promising candidate for the development of a new environmentally friendly plant protectant to replace the antibiotic streptomycin currently used in fire blight control.”
Another study published in Phytotherapy Research found that juglone showed significant inhibition of RNase H activity in the HIV virus. This is a big deal. HIV-1 replicates itself through reverse transcription, a process that produces new double-stranded DNA from the viral genome’s single-stranded RNA. During DNA synthesis, a DNA/RNA hybrid is formed as a replication intermediate and must be cleaved by RNase H before the process can continue. Inhibiting this inhibits replication of the HIV virus, and the study showed that juglone from black walnuts did just that.
Anti-parasitic and Anti-fungal Effects
Juglone also exerts its effect by inhibiting certain enzymes needed for metabolic function. It is highly toxic to many insect herbivores (it is often used by organic gardeners for pest control), and studies have shown that it can expel parasitic worms from the body. Black walnut hull is reported to be effective against pinworm, ringworm, tapeworm, and other intestinal parasites. While there are very few scientific studies on black walnut hulls, the ones that exist are very interesting and suggestive.
In addition to the previously cited study above in support of black walnut hull’s benefits with helping to expel intestinal parasites, the following studies are strongly suggestive. For example, a 2008 study identified types of wood that were resistant to the Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), an invasive pest that eats the inner bark of trees. The study found that ash borers that normally fed and developed on ash logs had no larvae and were not able to survive, grow, or develop on any black walnut trees or logs.
In truth, this is one case where experience trumps lack of studies. Any good herbalist who has used black walnut hull tincture, either internally or externally, can tell you how effective it is. Dr. John Christopher tells a great story about how when serving in the army, he used it to cure jungle rot in just four days.
It is also important to understand that many parasites do not confine themselves to our intestinal tracts. There are at least 1000 species of parasitic organisms that can live in humans, including Giardia, flatworms, hookworms, ringworms, nematodes, and a whole host of funguses. Incidentally, medical labs only check for about 50-60 of them. Some encamp in the liver, and others, such as Cryptococcus gatti, invade the lungs, nervous system, soft tissue, lymph nodes, and joints. Anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs such as black walnut (not to mention heavy doses of garlic) can help drive all of them out of the body. This is while you’ll find black walnut hull as an ingredient in Jon Barron’s Liver Tincture formula.
Black Walnut Hull as a Vitamin and Mineral Source
Before vitamins and minerals were commonly used, herbalists were known to use black walnut hull for a variety of conditions including easing scrofula, ulcers, wounds, rickets, scurvy and as a gargle. In more recent times, Russian military hospitals also used it as a cleansing and quick healing medication for wounds and ulcers.
More Natural Health Benefits of Black Walnut Hulls
It may also help with lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. The black walnut hull’s tannin content is thought to help shrink the sweat glands and reduce excessive sweating. It may also help with menorrhagia and diarrhea. Other uses include:
- aiding digestion
- helping relieve colic
- helping relieve heartburn
- helping relieve flatulence
- stimulating bile flow
- easing pain in spleen
- balancing blood sugar levels
- warding off heart disease
- combatting malaria
- helping with syphilis
- helping with skin conditions such as boils and acne
How to Take Black Walnut Hulls
Black walnut hulls can be found as a liquid extract and in capsule form. You can also order black walnuts or find them in some natural food stores. Side effects associated with black walnut supplements are uncommon, and it is generally safe to use unless you are pregnant or allergic to nuts. Use while pregnant could theoretically cause birth defects or negatively impact the growth of the fetus, or potentially cause a miscarriage. The odds of any of these things happening is extremely low, but it is recommended that you not use it while pregnant.
It is surprising how many pages lack GOOD information on Black Walnut hulls with references to scientific studies! This article is definitely a better one, and I appreciate all of the information and links. Thanks!

Do you think I can dry the hull of black walnut and use
Is it going to be effective and how much I can have in one day.
Also we have many different kinds of black walnut, so can I use any of them.
It depends on so many factors
It depends on so many factors that it is difficult to answer this question. How they are grown, when you harvest, how you dry them, etc., all effects the strength and effectiveness–something that Jon Barron took years to master with his formulas. Hope that helps.
I want to know if I can use
I want to know if I can use this without worry of it decreasing the effectiveness of the birth control I am on (Nuva Ring) which is not oral.
Wormwood, which is also used for parasite control, can indeed impact estrogen levels in the body, but there is no evidence that the tannins in black walnut hulls have any such impact. Check with your doctor, but there should be no conflict between black walnut hulls and your Nuva Ring.
I was not aware of the herbal
I was not aware of the herbal importance of black walnut. I have seen normal walnuts using with chocolates and herbal creams. I was not aware that it is not good to eat them during pregnancy. Thanks for passing the mt-bc info about the health side importance of black walnuts.
It is the hulls that are used, not the nut. The green and black hulls have slightly different applications.
I want to say that appreciate the research on black walnut.
As is well known stem research it is juglone. Other components of black walnut known and well studied. Synthesized juglone resistant substance and retains its chemical structure more than 10 years. However, tinctures, which are traditionally used dietary supplements do not have the stamina and if tincture preobrela brown color, juglone there disintegrated into other components. Juglone is present only in the green tincture. You can check for yourself juglone in the tincture. Add the liqueur in ammonia water. If there is juglone is cherry liqueur or pink. If tincture dark then dissolve it in water, what would it became light. The test detects the presence of juglone in a dilution of 1: 200,000.
I do not have access to chemical research and get juglone synthetically or scientific method to remove it from the black walnut. But I have the opportunity to explore the black walnut by alchemy. As a result of alchemical study able to obtain proof of the substance juglone. This water and alcohol solution. These substances are kept open under normal conditions. Within one month changes juglone was not. The test was performed with ammonia water.
black walnut hull juice
Hello, I recently found some black walnuts at the park, and picked some of them. They no longer green skin but all black mushed under the dried leaves. I cleaned them with brush and thought the black colored water could have some benefits. First I was going to do the enema with it after boil and kill the pathogen, and look into internet and found that worm eradicating effect of it. So I boiled the black walnut in water, and let it cool and drank 3 cups after mix a little bit of water. It happened yesterday, and today I am fine nothing wrong happened. But today afternoon I became very much drowsy and had 2 hours sleep. I am very skinny person who thought the reason why being skinny could be parasite in the body. My question is that Is it okay to drink the black broth? I am not really sure if the black walnut I found was a rotten skin or the color is the way it is naturally. I tried to look for any information on website but no one mentioned the way I did. So please let me know what you think about this. Thanks.
There are so many variables, there is no way to tell what you took and what could be happening. Herbalists study natural remedies for years to know what to take, how to take it, when, and why. If you are afraid of having parasites, why not just look at a full body detox and use herbal remedies that you can trust? See our section on “How To Detox” for more information.
There is no way for us to
There is no way for us to know how much was contained in the 3 cups you drank. It was likely much more than herbalists often prescribe. This is a pretty strong herb and it would be worth consulting with a trained herbalist.

Black Walnut Hulls
Nice content! Really This is the perfect blog for everyone who wants to understand this topic. Black walnut is praised for its medicinal qualities. Dried Walnut Hull or its extract helps in relieving asthma, cough, and chronic bronchitis. Regular consumption of this herbal extract offers excellent relief for people of age suffering from chronic respiratory diseases.
Within a month, drank water
Within a month, drank water containing juglone, prepared from black walnut on its own technology.
I am 62 years. The experimental results are as follows: lost, gone the extra fat but physical strength is increased. In the morning after sleep significantly decreased numbness of hands, as noted earlier. Stomach in the intestines become soft and painless. Increased mobility of the spine and limbs and long walks almost no fatigue. During exercise decreased sweating in the head region. No swelling in the legs, which had been before.
My son was given 12 yrs of antibiotics and was told he has the worse candida that these herbalist have ever seen…but we have not been successful in getting his colon cleansed of this horrible problem… do you know if this not only kills the parasites but can once and for all get rid of the candida… this has effected his memory which causes learning disadvanages some days are worse than others…. look forward to your thoughts and advice… thanks sincerely

Side effects of black walnut tincture
Will taking black walnut tincture harm your liver and kidneys?
There is no known harmful
There is no known harmful effect to either the liver or kidneys when used properly. Actually, black walnut hull is a specific for cleansing and healing the liver. http://www.jonbarron.org/detox/liver-flush-tincture. Keep in mind, though, that black walnut is a medicinal herb. It should only be used on an as needed basis, or as part of a defined cleansing regimen, not as part of a daily maintenance program.
Will BW kill off good flora in the intestines?
Yes, absolutely—if you take
Yes, absolutely—if you take enough of it and for long enough. Short term use is not a problem. If you have a healthy intestinal tract, the minimal reduction in probiotic colonies from short term use will completely recover in a couple of days. In exchange for getting rid of internal parasites, that’s an easy call. Longer term use will cause more damage. That’s why Jon recommends its use only for detoxes and special situations. It’s not a supplement you want to use for daily maintenance. And remember, we’re talking about the hull of the black walnut, not the walnut meat.
Black Walnut and Kids
I’ve read that kids can easily pick up parasites from school. I was wondering if it is safe to give children black walnuts every other week or once a month just as a type of maintenance. I like to put crushed walnuts on their cereal for the omga3s. Could I add black walnut powder every so often?
using Black Walnut Hull for pressure sores
someone mentioned black walnut hulls to help combat incipient pressure sores my son is prone to. for 3 years+ a T6 complete paraplegic….(steer clear of motorcycles, folks) He has not yet had a full blown sore but has highly susceptible spots on his back, butt, tailbone (he is very thin below his line of injury) …do you have any knowledge in treating with BW Hull?…have also stumbled upon plantain leaves while looking this up and they sound like they could be useful, too. Used internally? Externally? Any advice appreciated and if effective would hugely impact a whole community. Thanks for any insight.
I am so sorry to hear about your son and his pressure sores. I take BW for parasites and constipation and it seems to be working great.
As for your son, my spouse has invented a wheelchair cushion that I’m certain will help him. It’s going into the testing stage now and will hit the market hopefully this year. The cushion senses the degree of pressure put upon it in 9 separate zones and automatically adjusts the pressure in the critical areas. It also has a healing cycle that massages in a certain way thar increases blood flow to the wound area. Along with the cushion a hand held smart device comes with it allowing the person to see a pressure map of his buttocks and make adjustments manually if he wants. Take a look at the website for more information. I hope we can help him some how.
I was reading about the hull
I was reading about the hull of the black walnut tree. Now in most of the articles I’ve read it states that it helps in decreasing the sugar levels and helps with bateria and parasites. I am a diabetic type 1, anemia and skin condition hidradenitis suppurativa aka (acne inversa). I have had diabetes and skin condition for over 12 years under several antibiotics which now have no effect whatsoever. I am under fast acting and long acting insulin along with oral med metformin, iron pills, and antibiotics. My question is, would it be safe for me to take hull of the black walnut tree tincture? And if its safe how long should i take it for, how mamy times a day and how to prepare at home? Or should i buy the tincture sold online?I am tired of painful life I live. I am for the first time willing to try something natural. I just need a little bit of advice. Please help.
For obvious legal reasons, we
For obvious legal reasons, we cannot diagnose or prescribe for specific medical conditions—merely provide information. With that said…
Any benefit black walnut has in regard to controlling blood sugar would be minimal. Black walnut hulls are used by herbalist primarily for their ability to expel parasites from the body. Dosage for any tincture you use would depend on the quality of the herbs used and the ratios/strength used in making the tincture. You would need to get instructions from a given manufacturer for their particular tincture.

green fresh black walnut hull
In some cases diabetes can be related to parasites and anaemia and circulatory issues that are associated.
Many parasites that can cause problems in the body love sugar and simple carbohydrates, they also take all your micronutrients and vitamins/minerals, making you hungrier which can lead to sugar cravings/obesity. I
In chronic cases high sugar consumption then starts to destroy your microcirculation which can lead to all kind of diseases (cataracts, high yeast infection in the body due to all the sugar, brain fog etc. etc.skin problems due to poor microcirculation) because the blood/oxygen is not getting there in an optimal way.
Also once your liver is inundated with fat, fatty liver syndrome, it has a hard time with nutrient uptake making the whole hunger/disease cycle worse. For example hens fed only corn die because they get so fat their liver cannot function properly and they are constantly hungry from nutrient deficiency and eventually die, often during laying, as their microcirculation is stuffed and laying an egg then can lead to death due to the extra stress it puts on the system.
I don’t know if your issues are related to parasites, but there tends to be no harm in doing a parasite cleanse generally (of course at your own risk) as all people have parasites, but certain kinds of parasites can overwhelm people who are already in poor health or under stress chronically.
Also no trans fats and no sugar, not too much fruit either, no fruit juice.
This is just my opinion, and I am not offering advice and please follow your doctors advice.
Good luck, I hope you are OK.
Black walnut must be prepared fresh, preferably do it yourself so you know it is the real thing an fresh. Store bought versions are probably useless. On youtube there are instruction about how to make the tincture yourself. Keep it in the fridge, it is useable as long as the tincture stays green, once black the juglone has oxidised and is useless.
The green hull of black walnut as a tincture should be used in combination with freshly ground whole cloves (grind it yourself or again it is useless as not fresh). Also with wormwood, buy a wormwood plant online and make your own.
These three herbs, prepared right and in the right doses are meant to be helpful.
2 months ago I decided to do a use a few supplements to do a body cleanse/ maintenance . The day before I was going to buy everything I found out I had a bladder infection, overnight it got terribly worse. So finally made it to the store, at this point I felt so horrible and I had to be at work in 5 hours!!!! So I bought to help stop the pain while I located the supplements I need3d, had to go back and forth between 2 stores. Ended up with 4 supplements black walnut (been forever sinc3 I had used but knew it was amazing, ) garlic, aloe vera and rosemary. Took all four immediately after buying. By the time I got to work I felt much better, a little pain in the kidney area but since I was just starting a new routine I knew it was a good sign and that it was working. The bladder infection cleared up within a few days. I still take the garlic, rosemary and aloe vera on a daily basis. And black walnut when needed.
Bark not the hulls laxative?
I noticed in the very first paragraph you mentioning the hulls as an effective laxative. However, I’m not sure that is the case. According to my research, I believe it is the bark of the black walnut tree as well as the leaves, but not the hulls. Even Dr John Christopher, the well known American herbalist, on his website, claims it is the bark and leaves.
My own personal experience would confirm that as I have taken Black Walnut Hulls off and on for years and have never experienced any laxative effect at all.
Do you have any references for the hulls as laxative as I have been unable to find any hull laxative reference myself?
For medicinal purposes, three
For medicinal purposes, three parts of the black walnut are commonly used—the bark, leaves, and inner hull. Of these parts, the strongest bioactives are found in the inner hull. Note, we are not talking about the hard outer hull, but the husk that surrounds the nut. Incidentally, Doc Christopher used the inner hull for his extracts—and referred to it as the hull: http://www.drchristophersherbs.com/products/black-walnut-hull-alcohol-extract

NECK BONE(S) “POPPING.”
I inquired here about some neck bone “popping” that I have been experiencing lately, and here BLACK WALNUT info is cited? Is there any Jon Barron transmittals or products concerning what is effective for neck bone “popping?” Thanks in advance.
There is no simple answer
There is no simple answer because there can be many causes for crepitus, the technical name for popping and cracking noises produced by the body. For example, the sounds can occur when two rough surfaces in the body collide or grind against each other. This can happen in conditions such as arthritis where the cartilage has worn away leaving the joints themselves to rub against each other. If this is the reason, then formulas that support the rebuilding of cartilage make sense. But it can also result from cavitation when gasses in synovial fluid (oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide) effervesce out of the fluid to form air bubbles. Spinal manipulation through chiropractic or osteopathic treatment or even simply moving your neck about can cause cavitation as the application of force leads to a change in pressure in the joint cavity, causing effervescence of gases and rapid air bubble collapse and the popping sound. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help if this is the problem.

Walnut and children
Is the hull, the outer shell of the nut that we don’t typically eat? I like to grind walnuts up and put them on my children’s cereal in the mornings for the omega-3 benefit and thought about making those walnuts black walnuts as a precaution for worms since my oldest is in school and I’ve heard that school aged kids are more likely to get them. But am I reading right that this wouldn’t help since it isn’t the hull? That the meat of the nut has no benefits in that area? Is it safe to give children (as young as 2 years) the powders or supplements that are available everyday or a few times a week/month as just a precaution? And are black walnuts easy to find in grocery stores or are they a specialty that you have to search for?
The black walnut is covered
The black walnut is covered with a green pulp until autumn, when it falls to the ground and turns black. Black Walnut Hull is the shell, or coating of the nut inside.
You gave me a good chuckle with your question about the difficulty of finding black walnuts. We have over a half dozen mature black walnut trees in our yard, and they drop garbage cans full of walnuts most years. The problem is processing them can be a huge pain, as they are a pain to open.

Pain in right upper lung and coughing
I was exposed to horrible coughing for prolonged period and started to develop a fluid nagging cough with pain in upper right lung. My thoughts were that I was succuming to the bug and starting to develop pneumonia. At 4:30 in the morning I made a concoction of 10 drops of black walnut tincture, ground cloves and ground cinnamon dissolved in 1oz. of alcohol. The powdered cinnamon and cloves mixed well with the alcohol and I added about 2 oz’s of water. Drank it down with a super garlic pill and went back to sleep. At 8am I woke up and the pain in my upper right lung was gone. The coughing was much less. So I immediately made one more and drank it. It is now noon and my flu symptoms are almost non existent.

the walnut hull & tincture
Hello, I have dried out the Hulls and ground down with a coffee grinder, we also made some into Tincture juice .
my question how do we take it ? The powered Hull do you take it internal or only external ? Meaning the ground Hull could I put in my coffee ? and also put it in a cream to put on my skin for skin issues ? the Tincture do I just use a eye dropper and put in a drink I hear 60 drops a few times a day ? Also does the tincture juice need to be put in the fridge ? or does that not matter. and the Hull powered just keep it in a sealed jar ??
we also made a few jars of olive oil with hulls ( unground ) .. not sure what to do with this maybe for food or to rub on the skin ?
Hi there,we have recently discovered Black Walnut Hull through
a friend of ours.My Wife has been a Severe Epileptic all her life and does not get any warning of a Seizure she just goes down and smashes her head into the floor. She has had more Stitches in her head over the last 47 years we have been married than you would have in a Jumper or Cardigan.It has been suggested to us that Epilepsy is like a Parasite in the Brain and that the Black Walnut Hull in conjunction with Clove Capsules and Wormwood Capsules which my wife is now taking could possibly kill off the Parasites that trigger the Epileptic Seizures. She still takes Seizures but I noticed over the last 8 weeks she has been taking the Black Walnut Hull Capsules that the Seizures are not as Severe as they used to be.She still takes 5 to 7 Seizures a month but it is only early days since she has started on the Black Walnut Capsules so we are hoping there may be a possibility that the Seizures may reduce further or even end up Seizure FREE over a period of time.Is there any documented evidence that the Black Walnut Hull will have any real benefit on Epileptic Seizures.

Great article. I just wanted to comment that I have been taking black walnut and I have a nut allergy. My nutritionist assured me that I would not experience any allergic reaction and I am doing fine on the remedy. She also shared that she has had many clients who have a nut allergy take this herb without any issues.
Apparently people who have a nut allergy can take this with no ill effects. This is great news to me!
my husband has been using this for several days and wondered if it is also used for an inflammatory for colds
Black Walnut Hull
My grandfather used many Native American remedies. Black Walnut Hull was one of them. I was small but as best as I can remember, he steeped the crushed hulls in boiling hot water and dosed us up, usually once or twice a year as a worming tonic. I remember he also made sassafras tea for a blood tonic in the spring, elderberry flower tea for colds and flu prevention, and mandrake root for liver congestion. I used to go with him to gather these. A family story says my grandfather, who was born in 1888, treated his small, rural Arkansas community with mandrake root during a reported cholera outbreak. This was when he was a very young man and not yet married. He was reported to have learned these remedies from his Chickasaw grandmother. My mother continued some of these remedies. One of my favorite was sheep sorrel tea, which was used as a spring tonic. I thought it made a nice delicately tart tea, which she sweetened with honey. My regret is that I did not learn more about these things when I had the chance.

Wormwood and black walnut tincture
Hi, very informative you r article. I’ve been feeling nauseas and full after only eating a few mouthfuls of food for a few years. My father in law who is 90 recommended I took wormwood from the fields an old Welsh remedy. I’ve been taking this tincture now for 4 days 3 times daily. I am eating better. Do you think it has this benefit
Did anyone actually check the studies cited at the end of the article?
They are all poorly designed studies which actually investigated the effect of walnut in bacterial infections in PLANTS! Only one of the studies included MICE as trial “subjects” and the results are not even near statistically significant.
I believe there may be benefits of having herbal supplements however it is also important to investigate their safety. Unfortunately there isn’t enough data supporting any of this claims, which means that giving away false information based on quackery or empirical evidence is definitely not a safe practice.
It is true that there are few
It is true that there are few scientific studies on black walnut hulls, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t beneficial—merely that few formal studies have been conducted. That said, the studies that have been conducted are both interesting and suggestive. Nevertheless, black Walnut hulls have a long history in herbal medicine and hundreds of years of anecdotal history. Keep in mind that the same could be said for Chinese Star Anise. Just because the active ingredient wasn’t identified and patented as Tamiflu, doesn’t mean it didn’t work in its natural form for several millennia before it was patented. Likewise, wormwood and malaria. It was an effect treatment for malaria long before researchers validated it—and of course, issued a patent for the bioactive in it. And the millions of people whose lives were saved from the use of those herbs over the centuries would definitely not call their use quackery.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
What are the side effects of using black hull?
I wrote on the site earlier that juglone should be fresh, not oxidized.
If you use an alcoholic tincture of black walnut and it will be black, the effect
Will only be from alcohol. This is defined since the yellow tincture on the water has an effect, but black does not and it is covered with mold.
A lot of work was done by me to get a black nut
Alcohol. Such a remedy is Tricelone VS.
Tricelone VS very quickly and effectively treats internal and external diseases due to the active, unoxidized juglone.
