Symphytum officinale, commonly known as comfrey, is a perennial herb that belongs to the Boraginaceae family. Comfrey has a long history of medicinal use and was traditionally used to treat various ailments, such as wounds, sprains, and fractures. The roots and leaves of the plant contain allantoin, a substance that promotes cell growth and healing.
However, it is essential to note that comfrey also contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which can be toxic to the liver when consumed in large amounts. For this reason, the internal use of comfrey is not recommended. Topical use of comfrey preparations should be limited to short-term use only, as prolonged use can also lead to liver damage.
