Product Introduction


Gromwell root is a commonly used Chinese herbal medicine. Gromwell root is the dry root of the perennial herbaceous comfrey, Xinjiang comfrey, which belongs to the wild. It is the same as comfrey, and is also called zidan, purple jasmine, ground blood, etc. The comfrey root is the root of comfrey, comfrey, new Tibetan comfrey or Yunnan comfrey. Usually digging the roots between April-May or September-October, removing the remaining stems and soil, and drying them in the sun or under a slight fire will become the comfrey roots we usually see.

There is a poignant legend about GROMWELL ROOT. According to legend, there was a couple who were in love in the small town long ago. Suddenly one day, the girl got a sickness, she couldn't wake up, and the medicine was in vain. The boy prayed to the Buddha every day, hoping that the girl would wake up as soon as possible. Day by day, when the boy’s knees were bleeding, the Buddha was finally moved. He asked the boy, "Are you willing to save her with your own life?" The boy agreed without hesitation, and the Buddha said, "Here is one. A grass, you must water it with your own blood every day. When it blooms, drink the soup boiled by its purple roots, and the girl’s disease will heal.” The boy was very happy, and cut his wrists to take blood to water the grass every day. Take care of it carefully. The four seasons change. In the midsummer, the grass finally bloomed with purple flowers. The dying boy excitedly dug out the purple roots, and boiled soup for the girl to drink. The girl woke up, but the boy closed his eyes forever with a happy smile. According to legend, this grass watered with blood is Gromwell.

5. Production Process

(1). Raw material collection: First, you need to collect comfrey root as raw material. Comfrey root is the root of the comfrey plant, usually collected during the plant's growing season. The collected comfrey root needs to undergo preliminary processing, such as cleaning and removing impurities.

(2). Grinding and crushing: The collected comfrey root needs to be ground and crushed to improve the extraction efficiency. This step can usually be done mechanically or chemically.

(3). Solvent extraction: Comfrey root powder is usually extracted by solvent extraction. Commonly used solvents include ethanol, acetone, ethyl acetate, etc. The comfrey root powder is mixed with the solvent, stirred and heated so that the active ingredients can be dissolved in the solvent.

(4). Extraction process: After the solvent is mixed with the comfrey root powder, an extraction process is carried out for a certain period of time to ensure that the active ingredients are fully dissolved in the solvent.

(5). Filtration and concentration: After the extraction process is completed, the mixture needs to be filtered to remove solid residues and impurities. Then, the filtrate is concentrated, usually by evaporating the solvent, to obtain a relatively pure extract.

(6). Purification and separation: The extract may contain a variety of compounds, so further purification and separation steps are required to improve the purity and content of active ingredients. This may involve the use of column chromatography, gel filtration, crystallization and other techniques.

(7). Drying and pulverization: Finally, the obtained extract needs to be dried to remove residual moisture and obtain a powdered extract. This can extend the shelf life of the extract and facilitate subsequent preparation and use.
