Wild-Crafted Black Walnut Hull from Green Hull (Juglans regia)
Ancient Greeks and Romans used Black Walnut Hull to treat many kinds of intestinal ailments and to promote healthy microbial activity. It is said to effectively kill over 100 types of parasites. Asians have also used the kernel and the green hull to remove various kinds of intestinal worms. The high tannin content is primarily responsible for its anti-helmintic property, although other constituents such as juglandin, juglone and juglandic acid are most likely involved. Black Walnut is thought to have the ability to oxygenate the blood which, in turn, may kill parasites. The green husk contains organic iodine. Iodine is known to have antiseptic and healing properties which help to fight bacterial infection. Black Walnut has been used to balance sugar levels and burn up excessive toxins and fatty materials. Black Walnut has the ability to fight against fungal infections.http://www.ghchealth.com/para-buster.html
