(NaturalNews) Comfrey, used for centuries to help stop bleeding and heal wounds as far back as the times of Roman chariot races, is still considered a beneficial herb that can be used topically as well as internally.(1) In fact, its botanical name is symphytum officinale which means "to heal."(2) However, it has a host of benefits that extend beyond helping with wound-healing and bleeding.

Top healing benefits of comfrey

The herb, also known as knitbone, has been enjoyed by many cultures through the years for its ability to help heal a variety of conditions. Here's a closer look at some of the top benefits of comfrey.

1) Heals wounds, may prevent life-threatening conditions

Perhaps the most common use of comfrey involves use in expediting healing of wounds, many of which are extremely serious. Documented cases note that comfrey, when applied to the body by grinding the herb and mixing with warm water to form a paste (making a poultice), has prevented the need for amputation in those with serious limb injuries and even healed malignant tumors.(1) It acts as a disinfectant, so it's ideal for placement on scrapes, and when eaten, can assist with internal bleeding.(3)

2) Diminishes pain

Because comfrey is a mild sedative, it can provide pain relief naturally and is often used by people who have experienced broken bones or sprains because it reduces swelling and bruises as well.(2)

3) Banishes damaging free radicals

The healing herb is brimming with a high quantity of antioxidants, which contributes to the prevention of toxic free radicals.(2) When the body is not filled with harmful toxins that damage the body's cells, health is optimized and overall health can be properly maintained.

4) Anti-inflammatory

Comfrey contains Mucilage and Allantoin, compounds known to alleviate problems caused by inflammation.(3) Chronic inflammation, as many sufferers are aware, can negatively impact the immune system and has been linked to everything from depression and diabetes to cancer and heart disease.(4)
