Nutrition Information

Comfrey is probably the best known ‘healing’ plant. Also known as “knit bone”, feeding Comfrey can support the healing of bone and connective tissue. This is thought to be due to containing the compound Allantonin (now used in many face creams) which encourages regeneration of cells. Comfrey is also thought to have properties that make it ideal to feed to horse’s that are off work, to keep them more comfortable.

Please note: Comfrey contains compounds that may be detrimental if fed long term - we strongly recommend following our feeding instructions.

Used internally, Comfrey may be helpful to support bone healing in conjunction with veterinary advice. Comfrey should not be fed for more than one month's duration.

Comfrey has traditionally been used to help support bruised tissue when used as a warm poultice over the affected area as it has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties for topical applications. Boil a handful of the leaves wrapped in cotton, allow to cool, wring excess water, and apply the poultice. Leave in place for no more than 8 hours and do not re-poultice with Comfrey for at least 8 hours.

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight; height has been given as a guide. Introduce to the horse's diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).

Comfrey is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules
