One benefit of black walnuts is that they effectively get rid of parasites, such as pinworms, tapeworms and hookworms, in the bodies of humans who eat them regularly. According to some claims, black walnuts may help humans battle Candida as effectively as prescribed drugs.
Black walnuts are also used to treat fungus infestations of the skin, such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and jock itch. However, black walnuts need to be applied to the infestation itself instead of having the person eat them. In addition, black walnuts may be effective against various skin conditions, such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. However, it is important to test the skin for allergies on a small area before applying black walnuts to large sections of skin.
Blacks walnuts may also be beneficial to the digestive system. People who eat them regularly can get rid of constipation and diarrhea using just black walnuts. Eating black walnuts can also help people who sweat too much get rid of their problem. Black walnut extract may be effective in treating sore throats and other throat problems.
Black walnuts might be effective in preventing cardiovascular diseases and diabetes in people who eat them every day, as they reduce the level of bad cholesterol in blood. Some scientists also claim that black walnuts can help to battle cancer; however, this lacks proper research as of 2016.
