Chlorophyll (green substance in plants) is what gives leaves their green colour. Chlorophyll controls plant metabolism and is necessary for plant respiration. The role of chlorophyll in plants is almost equal to the role of blood in human body. This is due to their similar chemical compositions. Plenty of studies have proved the benefits of chlorophyll for human health. Consuming chlorophyll is deemed able to detoxify human body, boost metabolism, as well as regenerate body cells. In addition, it can also improve the quality and quantity of red blood cells, enhance lungs capacity, improve heart function, reduce the risk of respiratory disease, get rid of body odour as well as bad breath, and even bind cancer-causing substances like carcinogens.
Another ingredient in CG is sea cucumber extract. Sea cucumber is a marine animal found on the sea floor and shaped like a cucumber. A sea cucumber is packed with 50 types of active ingredients such as protein, collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, natural antiseptic, saponins, omega-3/6/9 fatty acids, amino acid, lectin, and other various vitamins and minerals. Sea cucumber used in CG is Golden Stichopus Variegatus which is the best kind and the result of selecting from 1400 species.
A recent study from Cancer Prevention and Drug Development Center, University of Oklahoma, United States, has shown that the unique component, Frondanol A5, in a sea cucumber is able to prevent colon cancer due to its anti-inflammation, immune stimulants, and anti-tumour effect, (Mar Drugs. 2015 May 12;13(5): 2909-23. doi: 10.3390/md13052909.). Furthermore, the result of researches from various Universities in the world found that sea cucumbers often refer to “Cell Growth Factor”. The content is able to stimulate regeneration of damaged human body cells.
According to Dr.Ir.M. Ahkam Subroto M.App.Sc., a researcher from Biotechnology LIPI, protein content level in sea cucumbers is as high as 82%. This protein helps regenerate pancreatic beta cells that produce insulin. As a result, insulin production is increased. (Trubus 441, Agustus, 2006, p.109). A research conducted by Dr. Mitchell Kurk from Biomedical Revitalization Center in New York, United States has also shown the role of sea cucumbers in improving physical health for 70% of gouty arthritis patients. The disease occurs when uric acid forms crystals that build up in the joints. This causes pain and other symptoms.
