Research on 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. This hitherto unknown fraction of Chlorella was found to be rich in nucleic factors, and it promoted the healthy growth of human children as well as young animals.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.
