Black walnut is very good for Candida, but I believe it should be used as part of a very good, well-rounded antifungal product, so black walnut has been used for centuries in Europe as well as in North America for a whole wide range of conditions. The whole tree and the fruit, the leaves, the inner bark, they all contain compounds which are quite strong. You will find that – I don’t know if you have any black walnut trees growing around you, but the tenets from this tree are quite strong. They can stain clothes black really bad, so the tenets are something very stringent that you’ll actually find in the hull itself. Tenets are also found in tea, but they’re very powerful tenets in black walnut, and these tenets were used – were known, people used to many years ago cook up or brew these walnut hulls and use them actually for cleaning bed linens to get rid of bed bugs and bed mites and sort of ringworm infections. They used to squeeze the juice and put this on the skin to get rid of ringworm.
Juglone is the active ingredient – or Juglone is the active ingredient found in the walnut hull. There’s green walnut hull and black walnut, but the black walnut hull extract is the more powerful one. It may irritate some people if they’ve got very poor kidney function or people who eat too much protein in their diet may need to be careful. If you eat meat all the time, black walnut may irritate people with an existing kidney problem.
What I like about the walnut, black walnut in particular, it’s anti-parasitic, antifungal and antibacterial. A study conducted at the University of Mississippi in the ’90s showed it was, in fact, just as effective, if not more effective, to use black walnut, as it was commercial antifungal preparations. Whether they be for skin conditions or internal. So you see we have got natural medicines that are just as effective as using pharmaceutical drugs, and black walnut is one of the more powerful ones. Not quite up there as powerful as the grapefruit seed extract, but when combined with grapefruit seed extract and other ingredients like Caprylic acid, undecylenic acid, clove, Neem, berberine extract, standardized garlic. When you put all these sort of things together, you come up with a super powerful antifungal, and that product I created, and it’s called Canxida.
This is not a sales push by any means. I’m just explaining to you the best antifungals on the market, and black walnut is one of them. When you get black walnut, make sure that you get an extract, a standardized extract, something that is a little bit more powerful. Most dietary supplements won’t do this. In Canxida, I put a 4 to 1 extract of the black walnut, so this is quite powerful. And for that reason, I only had to put a small amount in there. If you use too much black walnut, you could irritate the liver and the kidney as I said, but a small amount is very potent.
It’s particularly good for people with small intestinal bowel overgrowth, so people who have got a wide range of food allergies, who’ve got a diet where they can only tolerate a small amount of foods, people with a lot of gastrointestinal problems like diarrhea, constipation, bloating and gas, things like that. I also use this product for women with bad women’s yeast infections, so it’s a perfect herbal medicine to use in conjunction with the proper treatment.
That’s black walnut extract. A fantastic antifungal and certainly worth considering if you have a yeast infection.
