Comfrey owes its medicinal effects to Rosmarinic acid and Allantoin compounds, which it contains especially in high amounts. These compounds have effects that accelerate tissue regeneration and wound healing, and also show anti-inflammatory activity. Comfrey is also very rich in many vitamins, resins, tannins, organic acids, trace elements and phytic acids.
ACTV Biotechnology has developed ProliCell SymStem by combining these beneficial
activities of the comfrey herb with ProliCell Technology. ProliCell SymStem shows strong anti-aging and wound-healing activity with the effect of specific small RNAs to comfrey stem cells, intense amounts of Rosmarinic acid and Allantoin. It also reduces the signs of aging by stimulating the synthesis of extracellular matrix components.

the Romans, its use dating back to 400 BC. The Roman scientist Plinius th Great discovered that comfrey roots, when boiled, effectively glued the meat. After this discovery, comfrey was often used to repair flesh tears and bone fractures.
Comfrey grass was also a very popular herb in the Middle Ages. The pulp obtained from the leaves and roots of the plant was used in the treatment of bruises, sprains, wounds and fractures.
