  • What is Phycocyanin Powder?


    Phycocyanin is a dark blue powder with a beautiful appearance isolated from Spirulina. It is both a protein, excellent natural food colouring, and good health food. It is a natural blue pigment approved by the US FDA. The European Union has listed alginate as a coloured food ingredient and its use in food is not restricted. Algae blue protein is a kind of intracellular protein, through the broken spirulina cells dissolved in the extract precipitation obtained because the extraction is blue, so the name of algae blue protein. Algae blue protein contains various amino acids and antioxidant substances, it has been widely used in health products, cosmetics food additives and other fields.


    The Phycocyanin Powder provided by Green Spring Technology is extracted from Spirulina in a gentle way through concentration, centrifugation and filtration, and only water is added as an additive throughout, making it a very safe natural blue pigment. It is rich in high-quality protein, γ-linolenic acid fatty acids, and 8 kinds of amino acids required by the human body, which makes it easier for the human body to identify and absorb the micronutrients, with high nutritional value.

    Green Spring Technology was founded in 2000 and is committed to providing customers with natural, safe, and organic plant extracts. It has passed multiple certifications such as Halal, Kosher, COSMOS, BRC, IFS, FDA, ISO, etc. Green Spring has a systematic quality management system that strictly implements quality management. All products are traceable and comply with international standards such as the US Pharmacopoeia, Japanese Pharmacopoeia, and European Pharmacopoeia. We can provide authoritative third-party testing reports.

    Phycocyanin inhibits the oxidative luminescence reaction of luminal under alkaline conditions by acting on the phagocytic respiratory burst, resulting in the reduction of free radicals (-OH, H2O2, RO-) and excess peroxides. There is evidence that reactive oxygen species such as superoxide anion, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radicals, can cascade arachidonic acid, resulting in mast cell degranulation and release of histamine, 5-hydroxytryptamine, tumor necrosis factor, and other inflammatory mediators. Phycocyanin happens to be able to scavenge peroxide, hydroxyl, and alkyl radicals.



    A study of the pharmacological activity of phycocyanin against hepatotoxicity induced by R-(+)-longifolium menthone and CCl4 in rats showed that phycocyanin significantly reduced the hepatotoxicity induced by the production of large amounts of free radicals by both compounds. Phycocyanin significantly reduced the phagocytosis and the associated respiratory burst activity of chytridial cells, which was based on the principle that phycocyanin reduced the tumour necrosis factor TNF-α produced by oxidative stress and nitric oxide produced in the hyperthyroid state. Thus, the hepatoprotective effect of phycocyanin is mainly attributed to its inhibition of the production of reactive metabolites in oxidative reactions and its effective elimination of free radicals.


    Elimination of Cataracts

    Phycocyanin inhibits D-galactose-induced apoptosis of human lens epithelial cells (LECs) via mitochondrial and unfolded protein response pathways. Lens epithelial cell apoptosis is an important cause of cataract formation, and prevention of LEC apoptosis could be a therapeutic strategy for cataracts. The experimental results showed that phycocyanin could reduce the incidence of sodium selenite-induced cataracts by regulating the levels of antioxidant enzymes in vivo and ex vivo, such that oxidative stress in vivo was reduced.


    Protection of Blood Vessels

    Experiments have confirmed that the phycocyanin in Spirulina inhibits the generation of reactive free radicals and cyclooxygenase-2, thus increasing the level of antioxidant enzymes in the body, effectively improving the inflammatory damage caused by oxidative stress in atherosclerotic animals, and has the effect of regulating blood lipids.


    In Healthy Food:

    Phycocyanin can improve the metabolism of skin cells, resist the attack of free radicals, and keep the skin smooth and delicate. In addition, algal blue protein has the effect of lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fat, reducing fatigue, etc., which helps to enhance the health of the body.


    In Cosmetics:

    Collagen and hyaluronic acid, which are contained in Phycocyanin powder, can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin, preventing the skin from sagging and developing wrinkles. It can also lighten melanin, brighten skin tone, effectively fight oxidation and protect skin from environmental stimuli such as UV rays.


    In the Food Field:

    The antioxidant effect of phycocyanin powder is very significant, which can inhibit lipid oxidation reactions in food, prolong the shelf life of food, maintain the color, taste and nutrient content of food, and improve the quality of food. In addition, algal blue protein can be added to products such as dairy products, meat products, fruit juices, and dietary supplements to increase their nutritional value.
