“Food diamonds” – phycocyanin, the things you don’t know before

Phycocyanin is a kind of intracellular protein, which can be obtained by breaking spirulina cells into the extraction solution after precipitation. It is named phycocyanin because of its blue color after extraction.Many people will think that algin is just a natural pigment extracted from spirulina, ignoring the fact that algin contains eight essential amino acids, which are beneficial to the human body.

It is the only natural blue pigment approved by the FDA. The European Union already lists cyanin as a color food ingredient, and its use in food is unrestricted.

China GB2760 Food Additives list also allows the use of algal blue as a natural colorant. Cyanobacterial protein can also be used in medical and health products, cosmetics raw materials, biochemical reagents, etc.

Algin is a collagen-like protein with antioxidant, moisturizing and anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory and freckle-removing effects, and presents a beautiful ocean blue tone.

In vitro experiments of cyanin have been shown to stimulate erythrocyte colony formation, similar to erythropoietin (EPO). Cyanobacteria can help regulate the synthesis of a variety of important enzymes needed by the human body, and play an important role in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and promoting the regeneration of human cells. At the same time, it can also regulate the human immune system and improve the human body’s resistance to diseases.

Cyanin is a dark blue powder isolated from spirulina with a beautiful color.It is not only a kind of protein, but also an excellent natural food pigment, and it is also a good health food. Cyanobacterial blue protein has the functions of anti-cancer, promoting blood cell regeneration, maintaining ovary, and promoting the synthesis of elastin in human body.At the beginning of the 21st century, in Europe, America, Japan and other countries, algin cyanin is widely used as a senior natural pigment in food and cosmetics, and has been made into biochemical drugs.

In 1986, Confident algin developed by Kangpi AIDS Research Institute in Japan and produced by CONFIDENCE algae nutrition Food Company was used as a rehabilitation drug and nutritional food for cancer patients and leukemia patients, and achieved outstanding curative effect.

So, what are the functions of phycocyanin?

1. Antioxidant

Cyanobacteria can clear peroxyl, hydroxyl and oxyalkyl radicals, and selenium-rich cyanobacteria can be used as a powerful antioxidant to clean a series of toxic free radicals such as superoxide and hydroperoxide groups. It is a powerful broad-spectrum antioxidant. In the aspect of delaying senescence, it can eliminate tissue damage and cell senescence caused by harmful free radicals produced in physiological metabolism in human body.

2. Anti-inflammatory

Many middle-aged and elderly people are prone to a little disease will cause a complicated inflammatory response, and even the damage of inflammation far more than the pain itself. Cyanobacteria can effectively eliminate hydroxyl groups in cells and reduce the inflammatory response induced by glucose oxidase, showing significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

3. Improve anemia

On the one hand, algin can form soluble compounds with iron, greatly improving the absorption of iron by human body; on the other hand, algin can stimulate bone marrow hematopoiesis, which can be used for clinical adjuvant treatment of various blood diseases, and has an improvement effect on people with anemia symptoms.
