In 2011, Nature Complete introduced Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), the UK’s first pure powdered extract of chlorella pyrenoidosa product that contains a certified organic ingredient. Our CGF capsules contain pure powdered extract of certified organic chlorella pyrenoidosa in a vegetarian capsule shell (hydroxypropyl cellulose). It is non-GM and free from gluten and additives. Suitable for everyone, including children, vegans, pregnant and nursing mothers.


Why use Chlorella Growth Factor?

Experiments with microorganisms, animals and children have shown that CGF promotes faster than normal growth without adverse side effects, and in adults, it appears to enhance RNA/DNA functions responsible for production of proteins, enzymes and energy at the cellular level, stimulating tissue repair and protecting cells against some toxic substances.

Dr. Minchinori Kimura of Japan found levels of 10% RNA and 3% DNA in chlorella, which would make chlorella the highest known food substance in nucleic acids. Used regularly, chlorella would assist in the repair of damaged genetic material in human cells, protecting health and slowing down the aging process.

As people age, cell processes slow down. The cell wall, which regulates fluids, intake of nutrients and expulsion of wastes, becomes less functional. Nutrient intake is less efficient and more toxic wastes remain in the cells. This leads to an increasing acidic condition in the body that favors many kinds of chronic and degenerative diseases. When we have a sufficient intake of foods rich in DNA and RNA to protect our own cellular nucleic acids, the cell wall continues to function efficiently, keeping the cell clean and well nourished…

Research on Chlorella Growth Factor

Early experiments with young laboratory animals (rats, rabbits, pigs and chicks) showed that adding 5 to 10 percent of Chlorella to the regular feed brought dramatic increases in weight gain and size. These gains ranged from a low of 10 percent to a high of 47 percent compared to control groups.

Dr. Yoshio Yamagishi received permission from the authorities to try Chlorella on human volunteers. They were healthy ten year old students, 22 boys and 18 girls, studying at Okuno Primary School in Tokyo. Another group of the same age and composition served as controls.

The height and weight of all the children were recorded on a regular basis. At the end of the experiment in which the test group received two grams of Chlorella…

History of CGF

In the 1950s Dr. Fujimake of the People’s Scientific Research Center in Tokyo, separated a substance from a hot water extract of chlorella by electrophoresis. He found that hot water extract promoted the healthy growth of human children as well as young animals. Because of this growth-promoting effect discovered in the early experiments with chlorella extract, it was named the…

Discovery and development of Chlorella

Chlorella was one of the first life forms to exist on our planet 3.5 billion years ago. It was first discovered in 1890 but only became available to consumers at the end of the 1970s when a method of breaking down the tough cell wall…
