Black Walnut Hull Extract - (tincture)
Black walnut hull extract is made by harvesting the green hulls which surround the nut of the black walnut tree.
These green hulls are stripped from the nuts and cleaned. Then they are broken down into smaller parts and soaked in a solution of organic grain alcohol and distilled water.
Some of the natural chemicals do not dissolve in water and hence the reason the alcohol is used. This is a very common ingredient in the manufacture of liquid herbal remedies and it is taken is tiny amounts which are negligible.
Black walnut hull extract has been used for many hundreds of years to help control and eliminate parasites from the body. It can be bought separately or with the two other anti parasite herbs clove and wormwood.
