*Nutritional value of Comfrey Powder:

Comfrey contains 18 amino acids!! It is especially a good source of amino acid hysine, which is usually lacking in diets that contain no animal protein.

It is rich in vitamin C, essential for the health of blood vessels, cartilage, gums, skin, tendons and ligaments. Vit. C is vital in the maintenance of cell walls and connective tissue. It facilitates the uptake and absorption of iron, is involved in the immune system in fighting off infections and has antiviral properties it also has vital antioxidant activity.

It is rich in vitamin A, which is essential for healthy eyes, skeleton and teeth. It keeps the mucous membranes healthy and protects against intruding bacteria. Vit A has also been shown to fight infections and tumours.

It is rich in vit. B12 and contains other B-complex vitamins. Vit. B12 is necessary in the formation of red blood cells and helps against anaemia. There are only two plants in the plant kingdom that are known to contain vit. B12, and Comfrey is one of them! (The other one is Lucerne, also known as Alfalfa.)

Comfrey is rich in protein thus making it especially important in a vegetarian diet and to aids patients, who cannot afford eating meat or eggs regularly. Proteins are necessary for the healing of damaged tissue, thereby assisting the body to speed up the healing process.

Comfrey is also a rich source of calcium, benefiting those allergic to dairy products, vegetarians and once again aids patients, who cannot afford milk, cheese and yoghurt.

It is a rich source of potassium, essential for nerve function.

It is rich in phosphorus, essential for energy metabolism, muscle activity, skeleton and teeth.

It is rich in iron, an essential component of haemoglobin.

Other minerals that are present in Comfrey are magnesium, sulphur, copper, zinc, selenium and germanium. Minerals are the building blocks of bones, teeth and nails. It forms an essential part of each cell, it plays an important role in regulating water and acid levels (thus helping for gout) in the body.

Comfrey also contains starch, providing energy.

The plant is rich in mucilaginous fibre, which help to produce softer, bulkier stools that are easier to pass.

Al the above is proof that the powder is an excellent tonic or food supplement, with the capability of building the immune system.


Do not consume just any Comfrey plants, grown in your or in a friend's garden! There are four kinds of Comfrey plants! Symphytum officinale, the safe kind, the second one is prickly comfrey (S. asperum). The third one is known as Russian Comfrey (S x uplandicum). It is considered poisonous when used excessively. Prickly Comfrey and Russian comfrey are sometimes mistakenly sold or used as regular Comfrey. It contains higher levels and/or more toxic types of alkaloids. The fourth is S.tuberosum. Only experts can tell these four kinds apart. The plants are, for example, distinguished by their seeds. The seeds are as big as a metal pin's head and one cannot see the difference by merely looking at them with the naked eye. Other distinguishing factors are minute differences between the flowers, coloration and length of stems as well as minute differences between the shape and size of the leaves.

Do not consume products containing Comfrey roots, as the (toxic) alkaloid level is very high in the roots. It is however safe for external use.

Bacteria: Amoebic-like bacteria's further growth is prevented and it is destroyed by Comfrey, thus acting as a natural antibiotic!

Bleeding: Comfrey is one of the best remedies for internal bleeding.

Blood flow: Comfrey acts as an astringent – shrinks soft tissue and contracts blood vessels, thus checking blood flow, as in the case of haemorrhages.

The plant is hypoallergenic and does therefore not cause allergic reactions as some chemical products do. It can even be used on baby- or sensitive skin.

Tissue: Comfrey stimulates the rapid regeneration of new cells and therefore new tissue. It cleans up dead tissue while healing.

Tonic: It is used as a overall tonic, as it is beneficial to all parts of the body.
