Introduction

The black walnut is a native tree of North America. Black walnuts are smaller, harder, and more pungent than the English walnuts sold in grocery stores. The hulls without the meaty kernels inside are used in herbal medicine. Black walnut trees exude a sap that discourages growth of competing plants over their roots.

Constituents

Juglone, vitamin C, zinc.

Typical Preparations

Tinctures, pastes and slurries. Up to 1 teaspoon of the herb 3 times a week taken internally as a tea.

Summary

Black walnut hulls contain juglone.

Precautions

Black walnut hulls are safe for occasional use of up to 2 weeks at a time, but black walnut heartwood is not. Avoid herbal remedies which contain heartwood.

Precautions

Specific: Not recommended for long term use.
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
