What is Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) and why is it good for you?
Chlorella Growth Factor is a unique nutrient complex found in the nucleus of chlorella. CGF is produced during photosynthesis and chlorella cells to multiply rapidly into 4 cells every 20 hours. This rapid rate of growth in CGF helps repair damaged cells in humans, and slows down the ageing process.
CGF is a water-soluble extract from Chlorella which many scientists and researchers have discovered that it promotes the growth of animals and microorganisms. CGF contains nucleotide-peptide, glycoprotein, nucleic acid - polysaccharides and sulphur, for body's growth, immunity, other health benefits and peak health condition. Its scientific and unique component structure is still under research by many scientists, scholars and doctors and attracting many people in the world. Its nucleotide - peptide has anti-cancer properties.
CGF is almost tasteless and odourless, improving food taste and increase the growth of lactobacillus found in health and seasoning food such as lactic acid beverage, natto, miso, soy sauce, and soybean paste.
CGF is only found in Chlorella, a green single cell micro-algae among the vegetable kingdom, which is also among the family of kelps like Wakame, Kombu and Ao-nori.
What Are The Health Benefits of CGF
Researchers found that CGF is a powerful enhancer of immunity, growth and development to the young, and as a retardant of ageing.
One key distinctive function of CGF is immunity. CGF prevents viruses from growing, increases the body's resistance against infection of diseases and also controls the cancer cells in our body.
CGF helps stimulate tissue and genetic material repair, protect and support cellular functions, improve nutrient intake, regulate production of enzymes, regain energy, protect cells against toxin, improve bowel function and improve memory.
It was reported that CGF helps lower blood pressure, improve liver function, improve blood counts, regulate blood sugar level, renew cells, quicken healing of stomach ulcer and skin disorders, heal anaemia, remove constipation and headache, resist cold, restore body energy, and create appetite.
CGF extract is easily assimilated, passing through the stomach and immediately into the intestines to be absorbed into the body and cell system for quick recovery. However, Chlorella tablets will take a few hours to digest before assimilation can take effect.
How Does CGF Increase Immunity
CGF stimulates T cells against viruses and cancer, B cells against bacteria, and macrophages against cancer, foreign protein and chemicals. CGF stimulates interferon production, macrophages, secretion of tumour necrosis factor (TNF) and fibroblast activity. It enhances the activity of Natural Killer (NK) cells, slows down the ageing process, and extends mice's life to over 30%.
Do Chlorella Tablets Have CGF
Yes, chlorella tablets and powder have up to 25% CGF. The degree of CGF depends on the quality of chlorella on how it is cultivated and how impurities, protein and contamination are being filtered during the extraction.
Besides CGF, chlorella has the highest chlorophyll levels, which many researchers have found effective for blood cleansing and to prevent blood oxidation, so that oxygen and nutrients can be carried by the blood to build healthy cells and body. Researchers also discovered chlorophyll is useful in the treatment of cancer. The distinguished cell walls also stimulate interferon and promote peristaltic movements. Together with CGF and chlorophyll, they promote body cleansing, building and defence, improves your body system, blood circulation and cell renewal.
Chlorella is an organic vegetable and a natural whole food. It is rich in vitamins especially B12, and minerals especially iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium, protein, carbohydrates, essential amino acids, which are good for the body's optimum health and removal of heavy metals. Just 2 g Chlorella equals 60 g protein of daily consumption. Chlorella is an edible cosmetic to alkalise the body's beauty and smoothness. Chlorella is ideal for growing children, building muscles for adults, helpful to babies' milk intolerance.
How Does CGF Increase Blood Count and Cell Renewal
Chlorella has asexual reproduction system. It divides into 4 cells daily and the cells grow through photosynthesis process with solar energy and Carbon dioxide in freshwater. It can grow so energetically to cover the whole earth in 63 days, theoretically. Chlorella can produce 50 times more food than other grains by its photosynthesis process.
Chlorella cells are almost the same size as the human red blood corpuscle with nucleic acids that will help our DNA and RNA. It has its own organs and functions to live independently.
In the treatment of cancer, gamma ray and antibiotics are often employed. These treatments often have side effects which reduce the number of white blood cells. Dr. Saito conducted clinical test studies, and together with gamma ray and antibiotics, he gave Chlorella to the patients. He found that it prevented the reduction of white blood cells, improved the blood count and recovery rate.
How Do You Determine Which CGF is Good
CGF is measured by the ultra violet absorption spectrum which shows its peak at 26C nm and its valley at 230-240 nm. It determines the optical density (OD) of CGF at the level of 260 nm. The maximum purity is OD 100.
Another way to determine the quality of CGF is through boiling the CGF solution --CGF quality is superior if the molecular structure is stable against heat and acids. However, if the height changes after boiling, this means that the molecular volume has decreased, because the peptide has been reduced or unstable after boiling.
Why is CGF and Chlorella from Yaeyama is Unique
Yaeyama is the world pioneer and a world authority on the standards of Chlorella and CGF. It has the highest grade of CGF at OD 100 without impurities, contamination and protein compared to any other brand of CGF.
The reasons are very simple: the quality of CGF depends on the quality of chlorella. Most of the so-called made-in-Japan chlorella are in fact from Taiwan, Indonesia and even China, and imported into Japan, repacked and/or processed in Japan before exporting as made-in-Japan. These chlorella have poor quality and environmental controls with less stricter health standards and inspections
Who Will Benefit CGF and How Do You Take It
CGF has special benefits in energising the young, the health conscious, senior citizens to prevent ageing and chronic conditions, and those undergoing chemotherapy and stress.
Take CGF half an hour before meal or 2 hours after meal for maximum and speedy assimilation. For normal maintenance, take one cup of 20 cc in the morning.
For serious needs, take between 3 to 6 cups a day, divided into 2 or 3 times a day. For children below 12 years, take normal half a cup daily or at most one cup subject to the body's condition.
For more efficacy. take Chlorella tablets with CGF. Chlorella tablets contain whole food with high protein, unsaturated fatty acids, polysaccharides, carbohydrates, amino acids, nucleic acids, minerals, antioxidant vitamins A (Beta Carotene), B 1 - 2 - 6 - 12, C & E with CGF.
Once opened, transfer CGF to a smaller bottle for daily use, be refrigerated or in a cool place. Shelf life is about 2 years.
At Nature's Glory, we have 3 different types of chlorella items, depending on your requirements and intake:
Manufactured in 50g tablet form, our tablets are made from green single cell algae with over 80% digestibility and easy for consumption. Take 1-15 tablets daily or more after meals.
Made in powder and ultra-fine powder, our chlorella powder makes it easy for you to sprinkle it over salads, smoothies, juices or dishes. Use ½ tablespoon daily per person.
CGF liquid is made from hot water extracted from Chlorella and is easily assimilated, entering the intestines to be absorbed into the body and cell system quickly. Take CGF Chlorella Liquid Extract half an hour before meal or 2 hours after meal for maximum and speedy absorption.
