4 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 reviewed-- Known as the king of superfoods, chlorella is one of nature’s most nutrient dense superfoods, containing all 9 essential amino acids, chlorophyll, antioxidants vitamins and minerals. With all these offerings, chlorella is a superfood and 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 nutrient within chlorella called Chlorella Growth Factor or CGF. Chlorella Growth Factor is produced during photosynthesis and is the reason why chlorella can multiply 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 is contained within the nucleus of each chlorella cell, made up of nucleic acids DNA and RNA, which are responsible for supporting cellular health. As we get older, the body 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 a cellular level. Cellular health is crucial to the overall functioning of our body. 

        Now that you understand the origin of CGF, here are 4 notable benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor and how to get it.

        4 Benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)

        1. Increased Energy Levels
        CGF has the ability to increase energy levels because of its nucleic acid content, which is absorbed at the cellular level. 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. 

        2. Supports Healthy Aging
        As we’ve briefly touched on, RNA and DNA are produced by the body for cellular renewal. The signs of aging are typically most prominent in our 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, and aging is linked to the decline in nucleic acid production by our bodies. By receiving nucleic acid from Chlorella Growth Factor, the body is supported in fully utilizing the RNA and DNA to work against the aging process by promoting cellular regeneration.

        3. Immune Health Support
        Have you ever wondered how to support your immune system?
        CGF contains a group of polysaccharides, or sugar molecules, called beta-glucans, which have been studied for their positive impact on the immune system. [1] Although beta-glucans are still being researched for the role they play in the body, it’s suggested they may be able to positively impact immune health. 

        4. 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 tissue repair process. This translates to building muscle.

        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®!

        How Do I Get Chlorella Growth Factor?

        We’re glad you asked. You can get CGF simply by taking chlorella. But in order to get the maximum benefits of CGF, you’ll want to be sure to take it in a concentrated nutritional supplement. Sun Wakasa Gold Plus has been carefully formulated to provide your body with a concentration of CGF (and 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 Sun Wakasa Gold Plus, although concentrated in CGF thus supports cellular health, CGF does NOT contain other nutrients found in chlorella tablets, granules or powder such as chlorophyll, Active B12 and much more! 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 regime has worked for them.

        Important note: In its natural form, chlorella has difficultly 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.

        Final Thoughts

        Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is nucleic acids DNA and RNA
        CGF benefits: supports cellular health, increased energy, healthy aging, supports immune health and more.
        CGF multiplies by 4 every 20-24 hours supporting your natural cellular health. 
        Concentrated CGF and chlorella supplements each offer different health benefits, and both can be taken together. 
        Chose Sun Chlorella brand for your chlorella supplements as Sun Chlorella offers the most digestible chlorella on the market since 1982.
