Medicinal Comfrey

There is controversy about the therapeutic value of comfrey. It was used medicinally 2,000 years ago in Greece. And has been used ever since by various societies such as the Europeans in the Middle Ages. Catholic monks cultivated it to use in healing.

Today the most common use of comfrey is to help with skin problems. The plant contains allantoin that stimulates cell growth and repair while reducing inflammation. Scientists and physicians believe comfrey should only be used externally because it contains dangerous amounts of pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs).

Healing and Health

External applications should only be used for 10 days at most and no more than 4–6 weeks a year. Traditionally comfrey was known as ‘knitbone’ because it was used to help heal bone fractures. Modern science has proven that comfrey can improve bone healing. The allantoin helps replace and repair cells.

Comfrey has been used to treat bronchial problems, sprains, arthritis, ulcers, burns, female problems, acne and other skin conditions. It was said to help build bone and teeth in children.

Constituents of comfrey include allantoin, mucilage, steroidal saponins, tannins, pyrrolizidine alkaloids, inulin, and proteins.

Comfrey Root, Coffee, Chicory Root, Dandelion Root

I add comfrey root and chicory root to my coffee. You can also add dandelion root. Brew them all together. It's easy.

Of course, for good health drink coffee in moderation. But since so many people drink it, why not add some healthy, natural herbs to it?

Certified USDA Organic

Organic is a way of growing and processing crops that helps protect and maintain the health of people, animals, plants, and the environment. Farmers and ranchers use renewable resources. They conserve soil and water to improve environmental quality for many generations.

Organic food is produced without using conventional pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, bioengineering (GMO), or ionizing irradiation. The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) certifies growers after inspecting the growing, handling and labeling of the product to make sure it follows all organic regulations.
