I’ve been asked if black walnut and Coptis chinesis (goldenthread) are enough for a Candida cleanse?
A lot of people commonly use these herbs for a whole wide range of different purposes. Black walnut contains a chemical called juglone. Black walnut also contains a lot of tannins. Black walnut is used traditionally for worms, pinworms, hookworms, tapeworms, roundworms, and other parasitic worms. Black walnut is excellent for combating parasites, but it’s pretty useless against Candida.
Coptis chinensis belongs to a family of herbs that produce an alkaloid chemical called berberine. Berberine is fantastic for use as an antifungal, antibacterial, and antiparasitic. Berberine is a great herb, is a great substance to use with people. But you need to go wider, and broader, if you really want to target Candida.
Despite the benefits of black walnut and Coptis chinensis, using the two of these together is not enough to combat Candida. You would be missing out on undecylenic acid, caprylic acid, garlic, grapefruit seed extract (GSE), and neem, to name a few.
You could put Coptis chinensis and black walnut together in your own formula, but you’ll find the results are limited. I know this because this is how I worked with clients for years.

Instead of stopping at black walnut and Coptis chinensis, I would recommend using something that also contains GSE, and the fatty acids undecylenic acid and caprylic acid. If you add garlic as well to the mix, you’re going to get much better results.
In my opinion, there is no point in using a slingshot against Candida. That’s what you’d be doing if you only relied on black walnut and Coptis chinensis. On the
other hand, you don’t want to use a massive weapon that’s overpowering. You want to use a supplement that has multiple ingredients that can target parasites, dysbiotic bacteria, SIBO, Candida, and other types of fungi. CanXida Remove is an antimicrobial supplement that fits the bill for many people.
