One of the key active components of the Black Walnut Hulls is juglone. Juglone exerts its effect by inhibiting certain enzymes needed for metabolic function. It’s highly toxic to many insect herbivores — it’s often used by organic gardeners as a natural pesticide — and researchers have observed that black walnut can expel parasitic worms from the body.
The green tincture from the black walnut tree is an Extra Strength formula and far surpasses the potency of many other black walnut tinctures available. This is because of facts: First, our tincture is made from the highly potent green hulls of the black walnut tree. This is important because the green hull contains up to 10 times the amounts of Juglone, an essential ingredient in the tincture (lab tests on file).
Second, it is extra strength, meaning our tincture contains double the amount of black walnut hull contained in regular strength tinctures. Our hull to alcohol ratio is 1:0.68 – that’s 1 part hull to 0.68 part 40% grain alcohol (the alcohol level in the finished tincture is less).
2 ml (56 drops) 3 times a day with a small amount of water. Shake well before use. For adults only!
