Chlorella is one of the two most powerful foods on Earth. Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), or Chlorella Extract, is a collection of the most concentrated super-nutrients required for longevity. It takes 100 pounds of Chlorella to make 1 pound of CGF. It doesn’t come cheap, but a little goes a long way.
Therefore it is a 100x concentrate of Chlorella comprised of literally the most important nutritional components the body requires for cell replication and the accuracy of that replication which translates itself into longevity. Other than our relationship to God nothing is more important than our health because without it we cannot work and earn a living, we cannot help our family and instead become a burden to them.
CGF is usually sold in powder, liquid and tablet form combined with Chlorella and spirulina. The nutritional components of CGF are polypeptides, polysaccharides, nucleic acids, (DNA/RNA), nucleopeptides. These nutrients are found in all foods in nature but only in extremely miniscule amounts. Only in algae are they found in high concentrations and they can only be extracted from Chlorella and not from Spirulina. Nutritional components should not be extracted Spirulina. Rather, Spirulina should only be consumed as a whole food in my opinion. The reasons for this perhaps can be discussed in a different BLOG.
Chlorella has the ability to quadruple in quantity every 20 hours, which no other plant or substance on earth can do. It is programmed into its DNA to do so. It causes children and young animals to grow at must faster rate and for damaged tissue to increase its healing rate. However, exactly what this CGF substance is still remains a deep mystery.
Chlorella has been used effectively as a topical treatment for damaged tissue. It is also the CGF that helped in reversing chronic diseases of many kinds. The CGF is an amalgam of RNA, DNA, amino acids, vitamins and minerals whose exact properties have not yet been identified.
Research has indicated that chlorella is effective in restoring the body weakened by persistent hydrocarbon and metallic toxins such as DDT, PCB, mercury, cadmium and lead, while strengthening the immune system response.
CGF improves our immune system and strengthens our body’s ability to recover from exercise and diseases. It also helps prevents gastric ulcers and helps promote healthy pregnancies. In experiments, mice that were injected with cancer cells showed a high resistance to the cancer when they were fed chlorella. Another experiment showed that CGF improved the resistance to abdominal tumors and increased the number of immune cells in the abdominal cavity.
Scientific research indicates that regular use of chlorella prevents the heart disease, and reduces high blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels.
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) derived its name because laboratory test indicated that the addition of CGF to a standard growth medium increased the growth of friendly bacteria, lactobacillus, by up to 400%. Many researchers believe that CGF, which is unique to Chlorella Growth Factor: Collection of the Powerful Nutrients on Earth
The nucleic acid in the human body (RNA/DNA) is responsible for directing cellular renewal, growth and repair. The quantity of nucleic acid in the body decreases from about the age of twenty and insufficient nucleic acid causes premature aging as well as weakened immunity to common viruses and disease. Nucleic acid is depleted by lack of exercise, stress, pollution and poor diet. Replenishing RNA/DNA is therefore fundamental to every aspect of bodily health, longevity and quality of life. Since Chlorella has a perfect reproductive single cell it is more evolved organism than the other more common green micro – algae and therefore offers superior RNA/DNA.
RNA/DNA also strengthens immunity by improving the activity of T-cells and B-cells which are the principal immune system defenders against viruses and other invading micro-organisms. CGF is identified as being responsible for the production of macrophages within the immune system which can assist in the destruction of cancer cells and the removal of cellular debris.
CGF is 100% water soluble and so readily “body-available”. The 3% CGF content of Chlorella makes it also useful for improving growth patterns in children, maintaining good health in middle and old age, healing injuries and initiating cellular re-growth where it has been stunted by disease or degeneration.
CGF stimulates the growth of valuable friendly bacteria which in turn has a probiotic effect on the body. CGF promotes normal growth but does not stimulate the growth of disease processes such as tumors.
The anti-viral effect of chlorophyll and CGF have also been found to be beneficial in cases of blood sugar imbalances-diabetes, hypoglycemia, manic depression – because Chlorella’s digestible protein smooths blood sugar fluctuations.
Chlorella contains a greater quantity of fatty acids than either Spirulina or Lake Klamath wild blue green algae. About 20% of these fatty acids make up the artery cleansing, omega – 3, alpha – linolenic variety and it is believed that this is one reason why Chlorella has been shown to be so effective in reducing cholesterol in the body.
