The fresh green hulls of Black Walnut used in herbal preparations contain the chemical juglone. Since juglone inhibits certain insects, bacteria and fungi in plants and in the black walnut tree itself, researchers have searched for a correlation with its use internally in humans. Many cultures have used Black Walnut hulls to support a healthy intestinal environment and to combat parasitic infections, as well as eaten the nuts for their rich Omega 3 essential fatty acid content, vitamin C and flavor. The astringency from the tannins in the hulls and leaves have led herbalists over the years to include Black Walnut in topical applications for the skin.
