Formulas and Dosages
The future for Comfrey looks grim, or at least mired in political controversy! I tried to obtain some bulk Comfrey root and leaf at my local health food store and they said that it had been discontinued. In fact, they only had 4 products in the entire store that contained Comfrey: three ointments for external application and one tincture, manufactured by the Herb Pharm, that claimed to have removed the PAs. For its dosage, the tincture recommends 30-40 drops in a little water, two to five times per day. The ointments say to apply externally only as needed. There is the Complete Tissue & Bone formula through the Dr. Christopher Herb Shop that contains Comfrey leaf. This is one of two products that I found that is intended for internal use. The recommended dose is two capsules three times daily as a support to promote healthy bone, flesh and cartilage function.
There were many more products containing Comfrey to be found online:
Sun Soaps carries four products, mainly ointments/gels, that contain Comfrey. These are for external applications.
