3 Benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor

If you haven’t heard of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) before, get ready to have your mind blown!

        by Brandi Black, RHN


        March 1, 2019 -- Known as the king of superfoods, chlorella is one of nature’s most nutrient dense superfoods, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and is also one of the highest-known sources of chlorophyll. With all these offerings, chlorella is a nutritional supplement you do not want to leave out of your diet.

        But what really puts chlorella in the spotlight of health and wellness is a compnent within chlorella called Chlorella Growth Factor, or CGF. Chlorella Growth Factor is produced during photosynthesis and is the secret ingredient for why chlorella can multiply its cells by 4 every 20-24 hours. How’s that for super(food) powers?

        Chlorella Growth Factor is unique for several other reasons, too.

        Chlorella Growth Factor can only be found in the chlorella algae. This incredible ingredient is not available in any other micro-algae, including spirulina, meaning to reap these benefits, you need to add chlorella or specific CGF supplements to your life. 

        Chlorella Growth Factor is contained within the nucleus of each chlorella cell. CGF is made up of nucleic acids DNA and RNA, which are responsible for supporting cellular health and regeneration. As we get older, the body naturally produces less DNA and RNA. It is thought that when we receive RNA and DNA from our diets, we are providing health to our body at the cellular level, because that's where the nucleic acids are needed. Since every part of our body is made of cells, cellular health is crucial to our overall function, internal and external. 

        Now that you understand the origin of CGF, here are 3 notable benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor and how to get it.

        3 Benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)

        Chlorella Growth Factor can benefit many facets of your body with its unique makeup. Learn about having more energy, aging in a healthy way, a supported immune system, and the aided tissue repair effects below. 

        CGF is a wonderful addition to your diet, for every stage of life! From teenage to old age, CGF is ready to support your overall wellness. As always, you should consult with a primary care physician before taking any new supplement, especially pregnant or nursing mothers, children, and those with high allergy sensitivities. 

        1. Increased Energy Levels
        Scientifically, RNA and DNA are responsible or the production of proteins, enzymes and energy at the cellular level. CGF has the ability to increase energy levels because of its nucleic acid content. It is believed that this promotes an increase in energy because receiving and absorbing nucleic acid from an external food source reduces the amount of work your body must do internally to synthesize RNA and DNA. Using less work from your body leaves energy that can be used in other parts of your day.

        2. Supports Healthy Aging
        As we’ve briefly touched on, RNA and DNA are produced by the body for cellular renewal. Because of CGF's concentration of nucleic acids, you receive RNA and DNA, even when your body is slowing down production. By receiving nucleic acid from Chlorella Growth Factor, the body is supported in fully utilizing the RNA and DNA to support a healthy aging process by promoting cellular regeneration. Say hello to CGF promoting skin health!

        3. Tissue Repair Post Workouts
        Athletes, this one’s for you.

        The nucleic acid in CGF may help reduce the amount of recovery time between your workouts by aiding in the tissue repair process.

        It may also help balance the inflammatory response that we experience from exercising and working out. Not only that, but we are the only chlorella currently NSF certified for sport®!

        But How Do I Get Chlorella Growth Factor?

        We’re glad you asked. You can get CGF simply by taking high-quality chlorella. But in order to get the maximum benefits of CGF, you’ll want to be sure to take it in its own concentrated nutritional supplement. Sun Wakasa Gold Plus has been carefully formulated to provide your body with an amazing concentration of CGF. Bonus: it also tastes delicious-- people usually like to drink extra because they love the taste!
        We recommend pairing Sun Wakasa Gold Plus with Sun Chlorella in either tablet, granule, or powder form to obtain the full range of nutrients and health benefits that chlorella provides. This is because although Sun Wakasa Gold Plus is concentrated in CGF and thus supports cellular health, CGF does NOT contain the other advantageous nutrients found in chlorella. Adding chlorella tablets, granules or powder alongside your Sun Wakasa Gold Plus will add nutrients such as chlorophyll, Active B12 and much more to your regime! Most find that taking Sun Chlorella Tablets every day and taking Sun Wakasa Gold Plus every 1 to 3 days as part of their health routine has helped them.

        Important note: In its natural form, chlorella has difficulty being digested by the human body and so chlorella should be processed to get through the tough cell wall. As a pioneer in the chlorella market, Sun Chlorella brand offers the most digestible chlorella in the market since 1982.
