The science behind it is this…
The Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) is the ability of chlorella to reproduce its DNA several times a day and stimulate the growth of its own cells. Scientists have found that chlorella can regenerate itself every 20 to 24 hours, and studies show that chlorella and its CGF can stimulate growth and tissue repair in humans and animals.
Awesome! We like new tissue growth. 🙂
Chlorella is also a single celled alga that is also the most potent source of pure, natural chlorophyll. Chlorella is 50 percent protein, 20 percent fat, and 20 percent carbohydrate; and it contains many minerals, vitamins, and a unique array of phytocomplexes such as B vitamins, iron, magnesium, essential fatty acids, beta carotene, and more. Plus Chlorella helps break down the heavy metals and toxins such as PCBs, DDT, mercury, cadmium, and lead.
Sounds a little overwhelming…but pretty amazing. Right?
Chlorella is also safe for pregnant women. Unfortunately, in today’s industrial age, babies are actually being born “polluted” with dioxins, sometimes even when their mother’s eat and live as cleanly as possible. “Exposure to toxic chemicals during pregnancy and lactation is ubiquitous,” the [International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics] cautioned, adding that virtually every pregnant woman in America has at least 43 different chemical contaminants in her body. It cited a National Cancer Institute report finding that “to a disturbing extent babies are born ‘pre-polluted.’”
Yikes! So here’s the good news: Studies show that using a significant amount of chlorella can help prevent their babies from being born with dioxins and other harmful toxins in their blood. Chlorella is also safe for breastfeeding women as it also helps to purify toxins from their breastmilk so it is not transferred to their babies. It adds great nutrition for both mama and baby! So, as you guessed it, chlorella is also great for growing young bodies. (The one POSSIBLE exception being if they have a “mold allergy” – if that is the case, please consult with a trusted doctor that specializes in integrative medicine on what an appropriate amount might be for your child.)
Nutrition expert David Sandoval says, “The Chlorella Growth Factor can help children reach their full potential in every way. It stimulates proper cell growth and suppresses improper cell growth. It satisfies the cells and even can help children have better mental clarity so they can make better choices.”
Chlorella Growth Factor is considered an antioxidant. This helps to explain why it is very therapeutic and helpful support for the immune systems of kids of all ages. It is somewhat mind-boggling just HOW good it is for children though! The list of benefits is quite long.
“Researchers have found that CGF allows children to mature faster mentally, physically, & emotionally. They consistently grow taller and with a higher IQ than those without CGF. Additionally, the children’s social skills were more pronounced and they had significantly less illness. Interestingly, they had near perfect jaw development and had no record of tooth decay.” says Dr. David Jockers.
While we may not know all the specifics as to why exactly the CGF spurs on such great health, it helps explain why it is the best-selling supplement in Japan. Chlorella may not have been discovered until 1890 but it has existed for 2 billion years. In recent years it has also been getting more popular in the USA.
A great way to get chlorella in your child’s diet is via Purium’s Power Kids nutrition drink.
