CHERIFER is a multivitamin preparation with growth enhancer called CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR.


CHLORELLA is an edible single-celled fresh water alga which contains vitamins, minerals and high levels of protein and chlorophyll and nucleotide complex known as CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (CGF).


CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (CGF) is a complex chemical substance from Chlorella extract which is composed of nucleotide-peptide complex and promotes rapid growth.

How does CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR help as a growth enhancer?

  • The nucleotide component of CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR (CGF) when combined with other nutrients in the body provides the “building blocks” for the repair and production of the body’s own DNA and RNA and serves as raw material for protein synthesis.
  • Protein synthesis produces not only structural proteins but also enzymes which are essential not only for growth and development but also for other metabolic processes that are necessary for the maintenance of health and life, most especially growth.
  • CHERIFER PGM is recommended for teenagers aged 10 to 22 years old.

How long would it take for one to see an increase in height?

The effect varies from one individual to another depending on the genetic potential of a person. With continued use over time, CHERIFER shall maximize growth to one’s full genetic potential faster.

To what extent does CHERIFER affect the growth of a person?

By genetics, a person could only reach a certain maximum height. However, one may not be able to achieve or optimize such potential due to causes that affect growth like poor nutrition, lack of sufficient rest, irregular sleeping patterns, and other activities that could hinder growth. CHERIFER with CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR helps to reach the maximum height potential.

How long has CHERIFER been helping children grow taller?

CHERIFER, registered as a food supplement, has been in the market for the last 18 years and the medical community has tried and prescribed it to their patients.

Why is it that CHERIFER PGM is indicated for 10-22 years old when the usual peak of growth is 12-15 years old?

The early school years are a period of relatively steady growth ending in a preadolescent growth spurt by about the age of 10 in girls and about 12 in boys. While it is true that the usual peak of growth is 12-15 years old, Dr. Nelson on the Textbook of Pediatrics also states that “Little additional linear growth is achieved after the growth spurt of middle adolescence. Remaining epiphyses such as those of femur, humerus and sternoclavicular junction, become fused, sometimes as late as the early twenties”

This means that the long bones (femur and humerus) still have a chance to grow up to the early twenties and M of PGM stands for Maximizer. CHERIFER PGM with CHLORELLA GROWTH FACTOR will help teenagers to grab every opportunity to maximize growth potential even during the last stages. Hence, CHERIFER PGM is indicated even for young adults up to the age of 22.
