Black Walnut Hulls are an example of the diverse selection of herbal products offered from Starwest Botanicals. With one of the best selections of bulk herbs for sale on the Internet, the fact is that not all our products are actually "herbs" in the scientific sense. Our quality bulk "herbs" include roots, tree bark, dried flowers, and seeds, of which Black Walnut Hull is included.
You may have eaten ground walnut in desserts or in savory dishes such as pesto (it is a common and less expensive substitute for pine nuts), but it is actually the seed of the Juglans nigra - a northern hardwood tree that grows to as much as 100 feet in height.
The black walnut is covered with a green pulp until autumn, when it falls to the ground and turns black. Black Walnut Hull is the shell, or coating of the nut inside. It has long been important in Russian folk medicine as well as that of India and Pakistan, where it is known as akhort.
Warning: Prolonged use is not advised due to the presence of significant quantities of juglone, a known mutagen in animals. May contain walnuts.
Notice: Individual results may vary. You should always consult with your physician before starting this product or any health-related program.
