Juglans regia shows to be a useful natural option to synthetic dyes also useful in histological studies in staining cytoplasm. Its affinity to the cytoplasm uncovers another secondary result of the study, relating it to the presence of Polyphenols suggesting anti-oxidative activity. [1]

Juglans regia natural chemical components show significant nutritional, pharmacological and therapeutic value. The study took off from previous studies’ conclusions where Juglans regia showed, to name a few, cardiovascular, anticancer, antidiabetic, immunological, analgesic, protective effects.

Leaves showed presence of carbohydrates, cardiac glycosides, flavonoids, saponins, steroids and tannins whereas kernels showed presence of fibers, fats (saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated), protein, vitamins and minerals. [2]

Juglans regia anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties are explored in another study. More specifically, the Juglans regia protective properties against UV-induced damage on skin in vivo on mice. [3]

Its main antifungal component is isolated to be Juglon, as it showed significant antimycotic activity against three fungi that affect the skin and another one responsible for a mycotic infection in bees. [4]
