1 What is Phycocyanin Powder?

Phycocyanin powder is a dark blue powder isolated from spirulina. It mainly exists in cyanobacteria, red algae and cryptophyta. Phycocyanin is also generally divided into C-phycocyanin and R-phycocyanin. The former mainly exists in cyanobacteria, the latter mainly in red algae, and both of them exist in cryptoalgae. Its function is to absorb light (orange) energy and transmit light energy. It is not only a protein, but also an excellent natural food pigment, and also a good health food. Phycocyanin Phycocyanin is a very rare natural nutrient that only exists in blue algae.

Phycocyanin is a blue pigment extracted from Spirulina platensis, which is a pure natural food pigment. Phycocyanin is one of the rare pigment proteins in nature. It is not only brightly colored, but also a nutritious protein and a good health food. It is the only natural blue pigment approved by FDA. The EU has listed phycocyanin as the raw material of color food, and its use in food is not limited. China's GB2760 food additive catalogue also allows the use of algal blue as a natural colorant.

It is not only a protein, but also an excellent natural food pigment, and also a good health food. Phycocyanin is a kind of intracellular protein, which is obtained by dissolving the broken spirulina cells into the extract solution and precipitating them. It is blue after extraction, so it is called phycocyanin. Many people will think that phycocyanin is just a natural pigment extracted from spirulina, ignoring that phycocyanin contains eight essential amino acids for human body, and ingesting phycocyanin is of great benefit to human body.

2 Phycocyanin Application

Natural edible pigment!

Phycocyanin is a water-soluble pigment, pure blue, bright and lovely, and can be used as food colorant and cosmetics additive. And it is very rich in protein.

Medical and health food!

Phycocyanin in vitro has been proved to stimulate the formation of erythrocyte colony, similar to the role of erythropoietin (EPO). Phycocyanin can help regulate the synthesis of many important enzymes needed by the human body, play an important role in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, and also regulate the immune system of the human body, enhance the function of the immune system, and improve the resistance of the human body to diseases.

Cosmetics !

Phycocyanin is a collagen-like protein with the functions of anti-oxidation, moisturizing, anti-allergy, and freckle removal.

Special reagent for biological, chemical and cytological experiments !

phycocyanin blue with fluorescence can be used as a research reagent for some photodynamic studies in biology and cytology. It can also be used as a biochemical marker.

3 Blue Spirulina Extract Powder Benenfits

Phycocyanin can help regulate and synthesize a variety of important enzymes required by human metabolism. It plays an important role in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, promoting the regeneration of human cells, maintaining the ovary, and promoting the synthesis of elastin in the body. At the same time, phycocyanin regulates the human immune system, strengthens the function of the immune system, and improves the resistance of the body to diseases. Therefore, phycocyanin is known as "food diamond" by food experts.

1. Phycocyanin has the function of significantly inhibiting cancer cells. It can be made into anti-tumor adjuvant treatment drugs, and the adjuvant treatment for chemotherapy can enhance the immunity of the body.

2. Phycocyanin E18 can promote cell activity, remove free radicals in the body, improve ovarian function, and promote the rapid synthesis of elastin in the body. According to scientific research, phycocyanin has the effect of stimulating erythropoietin (epo) by stimulating the formation of erythrocyte colony; It can adjust white blood cells and improve lymphocyte activity; It can increase physical strength, promote the growth of red blood cells, improve the immune function of the body, and promote growth and development.

3. Blue Spirulina Extract Phycocyanin has inhibitory effect on all allergies.
