What is Comfrey? (Symphytum officinale)
With a nickname like "knitbone", you can guess what this herb is used for. It's been used in European folk medicine for hundreds of years, and in the middle ages it was a prized remedy for bone-setting.
The root was grated and mixed with the leaves to create a poultice, which was then wrapped around a broken bone. It dried much like a cast does today - and they believed it helped with pain and swelling.
For centuries, Comfrey has been used to treat all manner of bruises, wounds, broken bones and sprains.
It was even taken internally back then but now we know better... Comfrey should definitely not be ingested.
However it is still used topically by many herbalists to help support the healing of certain types of injuries.
Comfrey contains a substance called allantoin, which may be responsible for its reported use for helping support the bone and wound healing process.
WARNING: Do not take internally.
Broken Bones: Some people call Comfrey the "crazy glue of broken bones and skin", since it's been used for generations to help re-set bones.
Wound Healing: Comfrey has been used by herbalists to help support the wound healing process.
Comfrey has been used to help support the healing process for skin and bones through the ages... and now it's available in a convenient and potent extract for you to try.
