Black Walnut Hulls come from the immature fruit of the Black Walnut Tree

Black Walnut Hull
Black Walnut Hulls come from the immature fruit of the Black Walnut Tree, Juglans nigra, a short-trunked forest tree with a spreading crown.

The Black Walnut Tree is indigenous to the Middle East, but it is currently grown in the U.S., Canada and Europe as well. In the U.S., the Black Walnut Tree is found from Georgia as far west as Kansas and Minnesota.

Juglone

Danger! Keep Clear! This is the warning issued by the Black Walnut Tree, one of nature’s hardiest survivors. This warning goes out to pests of all kinds: root-nibbling insects and larvae, burrowing beetles and worms, and all manner of plants which would encroach on the Black Walnut Tree’s territory.

This warning message is transmitted primarily through the chemical juglone (5-hydroxy-alphanapthaquinone). The bark, root, leaves, and nuts of the Black Walnut Tree all contain juglone, a potent pesticide and herbicide.

Juglone creates a protective zone around the Black Walnut Tree. Nothing grows and nothing lives within this protective zone that surrounds the tree. The protective zone of a mature Black Walnut Tree may describe a 50- to 80-foot radius from the trunk, forming a perfect safeguarding circle that ensures the tree’s health and survival. It is a common adage among foresters that "nothing grows near a Black Walnut Tree."

Health Benefits.

Traditional Use


Black Walnut Hulls (Juglans nigra) are traditionally used as an antiseptic laxative for the lower bowels, and as a purgative agent for expelling unwelcome organisms. Black walnut hulls, harvested when green, contain a maximum amount of juglone.

Quality


The Black Walnut Hull Tincture - Extra Strength far surpasses the quality of any of the high quality tinctures available in the health food stores. This is because of three facts. First, it is extra strength; meaning it contains double the amount of Black Walnut Hull than regular strength tinctures. Second, it contains tincture made from the highly potent green hull of the Black Walnut, this is important because the green hull contains high amounts of Juglone, an essential ingredient in the tincture. Third, the tincture is fresh. We manufacture the tinctures every 4 months. This ensures that we always have fresh tincture in stock. In fact its so fresh that we guarantee the tincture to stay green in the unopened bottles until Use By Date.

Laboratory tests have shown that when the tincture is green it contains double the amount of Juglone compared to a dark brown or black tincture. After you open the bottle it starts to turn brown and then black. Don't worry it still contains at least the same amount of Juglone as the other high quality Black Walnut Tinctures you get in the health food store. Take double the amounts after your tincture turns brown.

Conserving the potency of black walnut hull tincture

Depending on the size of tincture bottle place 1 to 4 tsp of olive oil into the bottle and store it in the freezer. This will cause the olive oil to harden and block any air from oxidizing the tincture. The tincture won't freeze because it contains alcohol. Once you want to use the tincture simply shake the bottle to break away the film of hardened olive oil. The olive oil does not affect the potency of the tincture. Add more olive oil as needed to conserve the potency.

Suggested Use

Always start with 1 drop, increase dose by 1 drop per day for 5 days, then take the following once per week: Adults 16 and over, up to 2 teaspoons (tsp); children 6 months to 5 years up to 1/2 tsp; children 6 to 10 years up to 1 tsp; 11 to 16 up to 11/2 tsp as a supplement once per week or as directed by a health care professional.
