Last time, we took an in-depth look at a unique ingredient known as black cohosh and this time we’ll explore an ingredient called black walnut.Where Does Black Walnut Come From?
Like black cohosh, black walnut is native to the United States, although it’s natural growing zone is a bit more restricted. “The black walnut is a large deciduous tree that is native to the eastern United States, as well as certain parts of Southern Canada. The female flowers of this tree bloom and turn into a nut, usually in clusters of four or five. These can then be harvested for various uses, including the medicinal benefits of both the husk and the nut itself,” explains OrganicFacts.com.
Unlike the slightly more exotic black cohosh, black walnuts have remained a popular food source in America ever since the mid-1600s. Today you can find it in many popular foods, including candy, ice cream, salad, and various chicken and pasta dishes.The Cleansing Benefits Of Black Walnut
Several scientific studies have concluded that including walnuts in your regular diet can boost heart health and regulate cholesterol levels. There’s also research that suggests black walnuts are a natural enemy of candida, a yeast-like fungus that can create all sorts of health problems.
