Chlorella contains a nucleotide-peptide complex called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF).
Only chlorella has this growth factor (not spirulina or other microalgae). CGF consists of glucose, mannose, rhamnose, arabinose, galactose, xylose, plus the amino acids glutamine, alanine, serine, glycine, proline, asparagine, threonine, lysine, cysteine, tyrosine, and leucine. CGF is the reason why chlorella can quadruple its cell count every 20 to 24 hours. It is also responsible for many of chlorella’s health benefits such as supporting the body's natural growth, healing, and immune defense. You won’t find this unique growth factor in any other naturally occurring food source.
