Comfrey is good for muscular aches and pains and the skin
The comfrey herb has been used for centuries by people to improve their health.
Comfrey is also called Knitbone because it has proven its worth in helping bones to heal more quickly. This has also been proven scientifically. Science just loves to prove that nature is right.
What Comfrey is used for
Comfrey has been used for many different ailments as it helps to lessen inflammation and stimulates cell growth and repair. It is great for arthritis, sprains, varicose ulcers, burns and acne. It has also been used for rheumatism, neuralgias, varicose veins, muscular aches and pains, pulled tendons and skin conditions.
In a placebo controlled study it was found to reduce back pain when used as a cream and rubbed into the area.
Vitamins and Minerals
Comfrey is full of vitamins and minerals. I am all in favour of getting enough minerals into our body as our body uses these to build on. Minerals are very important to our health.
Comfrey contains Vitamin A, lots of B vitamins and vitamins C & E.
The major minerals contained in comfrey are calcium, phosphorus, potassium, chromium, cobalt and copper. There are smaller amounts of many other minerals too.
It is recommended these days that comfrey not be taken internally. Do be careful with it if you have anything wrong with your liver.
