If you’re exploring the vast world of natural antifungals, black walnut might have come up on your radar. Black walnut has been recognized for its therapeutic properties for centuries, being used both in Europe and North America to address a myriad of health issues. The tree as a whole, including its fruit, leaves, and inner bark, contains potent compounds.
One of the most remarkable characteristics of the black walnut tree is its strong tannins. These tannins, especially potent in the hull of the black walnut, were traditionally used for various purposes. Historical anecdotes recount individuals brewing the walnut hulls to cleanse bed linens of bed bugs, mites, and infections like ringworm. Moreover, the application of its juice on the skin was believed to counteract ringworm. The primary active compound in the walnut hull is Juglone. Among its variants, the black walnut hull extract is recognized as the most potent.
However, while black walnut’s antifungal properties are robust, it’s crucial to exercise caution. For some individuals, especially those with compromised kidney functions or those consuming high-protein diets, black walnut might cause irritations.
A unique aspect of black walnut is its versatility. It boasts anti-parasitic, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. Research conducted in the ’90s revealed that black walnut could be as effective, if not more so, than commercial antifungal preparations for both skin and internal conditions. This showcases that nature offers remedies that can rival pharmaceutical interventions.
While black walnut on its own is powerful, its efficacy can be amplified when combined with other natural ingredients. Ingredients like grapefruit seed extract, Caprylic acid, undecylenic acid, clove, Neem, berberine extract, and standardized garlic create a robust antifungal blend. One such product that harnesses the power of these ingredients is our very own CanXida. The CanXida blend includes a 4 to 1 extract of the black walnut, making it highly potent. Hence, only a small quantity is necessary to achieve the desired effect.
Black walnut extract is particularly beneficial for those experiencing small intestinal bowel overgrowth, manifesting symptoms such as food intolerances, gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea, constipation, bloating, and gas. Moreover, it’s a commendable option for addressing women’s yeast infections. As a potent antifungal, it is a valuable consideration for anyone dealing with yeast infections.
