A little bit about Sun Wakasa Honey Plus…
Sun Wakasa Honey Plus contains an extract of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), the nucleotide-peptide complex completely unique to chlorella. CGF is what gives Chlorella its ability to reproduce at an astounding rate, and when ingested, CGF may actually help stimulate cellular repair and renewal. No other food in the world can do what CGF does-happy guilt-free baking!
