General Description:

Comfrey is a European plant that has been naturalized in temperate zones around the world. A compact perennial that bears one or two stalks growing to a height of three feet (one meter), comfrey is distinguished by white, pink, or lavender flowers and arrowlike leaves. The entire plant is used in traditional herbal medicine, although only the dried aerial (aboveground) parts of the plant are reliably nontoxic. In much of central Europe, comfrey leaves make a traditional May Day salad, although the root should never be eaten.

Benefits:

Comfrey relieves pain and inflammation caused by injuries and degeneration, especially the symptoms of muscular skeletal disorders. Anticancer activity has been demonstrated for comfrey in cell lines. It can also be used for bruises and sprains and to promote bone healing. In folk medicine, the root was used for rheumatism, pleuritis, and as an anti-diarrheal agent.

Inflammation Comfrey has been studied for use in musculoskeletal disorders. In one study, people with rheumatism were treated with a pyrrolizidine alkaloid–free ointment for four weeks. Not all subjects experienced improvements and it seemed to depend on the specific diagnosis. Comfrey seemed to work best on muscle pain (myalgia) and not as well on osteoarthritis-associated pain. Pain and functional complaints improved for all, but again the muscle pain group saw more improvement. The benefits were noted within four hours, so comfrey should be applied three times a day.

Pain Comfrey is used a pain reliever. In one study, an extract of comfrey root ointment was applied to the knees of patients with osteoarthritis for three weeks and their pain was significantly reduced during rest and movement. In another study, an ointment was applied to unilateral ankle sprains. The treated group had less swelling and pain, and improved mobility compared to a placebo group. The participants who received the ointment used it four times a day for eight days.

Skin problems and injuries Comfrey relieves pain and speeds healing of pus-filled wounds, and accelerates tissue healing in cases of insect bite. It treats skin tags and common, flat, and filiform warts. In addition, comfrey stops reddening and irritation of the skin around wrinkles. Comfrey’s astringent tannins form a protective surface over wounds that promotes healing. This herb contains allantoin, a compound that helps stimulate the growth of new cells. It aids healing through cell proliferation
