CGF has the ability to stimulate the body’s healing processes

Whether you’ve just had surgery or are recovering from a serious illness or injury, the question that’s foremost in your mind could well be, ‘How long will it be before I’m back on my feet again?

Recuperation from an illness or injury can be more difficult and take more time than many people realise. However, a healthy lifestyle – including a balanced diet, regular gentle exercise (as long as you don’t do too much, too soon) and plenty of sleep – can help with the recovery process.

There is also a new, powerful way to support healing: that is, taking a natural supplement called Nature Complete Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF).

What is Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF)?

Discovered in the 1950s by a Japanese scientist, CGF is an extract of chlorella, a green freshwater alga. The exciting thing about chlorella is that its cells divide themselves into four every 20 to 24 hours. Scientists believe the substance that allows this rapid expansion is CGF, which is produced during photosynthesis and makes up just 3 – 5% of the alga.

Significantly, CGF is believed to contain the highest level of the nucleic acids RNA and DNA, which the human body also produces naturally. But as you age, your production of RNA and DNA slows down – eating foods rich in nucleic acids, however, is thought to stimulate your body’s ability to create its own.

RNA and DNA is found in a range of foods, but chlorella is by far one of the richest. For example, it contains 17 times more RNA than sardines.

CGF and repair

Many scientists believe taking CGF on a regular basis may help repair damaged tissue and cells. That’s because having good levels of RNA and DNA in the body is thought to help protect vital cell processes, including the function of cell walls. When the body is producing optimum levels of RNA and DNA, it is also capable of using nutrients more effectively, which means the function of cells to repair themselves is also boosted.

Japanese scientists in the 1960s carried out tests that also suggest CGF may promote the tissue repair. After giving schoolchildren two grams of chlorella on a regular basis, after 112 days they discovered the children had grown faster and gained more weight than others who were not taking the alga.

Since the same substances and processes that accelerate growth in children are thought to also promote the repair of tissue damage in adults, the scientists concluded that CGF has the ability to stimulate the body’s healing processes.

So if you’re recuperating following an illness or injury, taking Nature Complete Chlorella Growth Factor could be just the boost you need.
