Chlorella Growth Factor
If you haven’t heard of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) before, get ready to have your mind blown!
As you may know, chlorella is one of nature’s most nutrient dense superfoods, containing all 8 essential amino acids, chlorophyll,antioxidant and plenty of life-giving essential vitamins and minerals. With all of 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 CGF or Chlorella Growth Factor. 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 a number of other reasons, too.
Chlorella Growth Factor contains nucleic acids DNA and RNA, which are responsible for cellular regeneration. As we get older, the body produces less DNA and RNA, which is said to be a key factor in rapid aging and leaves us more prone to illness and disease. 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 CGF, here are 4 notable benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor and how to get it.
4 Benefits of Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)
1. Increase Energy Levels
CGF has the ability to increase energy levels because of its nucleic acid content, which is absorbed at the cellular level. 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. This mechanism works to conserve your body’s energy, making CGF a highly effective energy boosting supplement.
As we’ve briefly touched on, RNA and DNA are produced by the body for cellular repair and regeneration. 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 able to utilize the RNA and DNA to work against the aging process by promoting cellular regeneration.
3. Immune System Booster
Have you ever wondered how to build up 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.  Although beta-glucans are still being researched for the role they play in the body, it’s suggested they are most efficient in boosting the immune system to protect against harmful pathogens.
4. Tissue Repair
Athletes, this one is for you.
The nucleic acid in CGF can help reduce the amount of recovery time between your workouts by aiding in tissue repair. This translates to building muscle—or getting your gains—faster!
Of course, tissue repair is also required for inflammation in the body and wound healing, so if you’re not an athlete, you’ll still experience this unique benefit.
