Antihelminthic / Anthelmintic

Share this page:

An Antihelminthic (also sometimes written Anthelmintic) is a remedy against parasitic worms (helminths). Such remedies work either by stunning or killing the parasites.

Here is a list of plants reported to have anthelminthic effect:

Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum & Nicotiana rustica)
Moringa oleifera (Moringaceae) (Micronutrient Powder)
Black Walnut (Juglans nigra)
Wormwood (Artemisia absynthium)
Clove (Syzygium aromaticum)
Tansy tea (Tanacetum vulgare)
Hagenia (Hagenia abyssinica)
Garlic (Allium sativum)
Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
Pineapple (Ananas comosus)
kalonji (Nigella sativa) seeds
male fern (Dryopteris filix-mas)
Monarda fistulosa (Wild Bergamot)
Honey mixed with water and vinegar was also used as a vermifuge
Plumeria (P. acutifolia or P. rubra) in Brazilian folk medicine
Peganum harmala
Banisteriopsis caapi
genistein (from soy and other legumes)

Note - much testing has been done and all evidence shows that these plants are only effective in their live state. Tested dried "Natural" de-wormers, as well as Diatomaceous Earth have consistently shown no effect on reducing worm loads.
