A variety of functions used in medicine and health care (1) Rich in amino acids 60% -70% of the protein in spirulina is mainly derived from phycocyanin, which contains 8 essential amino acids accounting for up to 37.2% of the total amino acids. This content is very close to or exceeds the recommended standards of FAO.
(2) Anti-oxidation Among the current water-soluble ingredients, phycocyanin is the natural ingredient with the strongest antioxidant capacity and the widest antioxidant range, and its antioxidant activity is much higher than that of SOD and vitamin C.
(3) Anti-radiation and improve anemia Effective resistance to ultraviolet and other ionizing radiation is an important biological property of cyanobacteria. And on the one hand, phycocyanin can form soluble compounds with iron, which greatly improves the body’s absorption of iron.
(4) Enhance immunity Phycocyanin can increase the activity of lymphocytes, improve the body’s immunity through the lymphatic system, and enhance the body’s ability to prevent disease. Italian NYSA company’s Smart Aqua innovative product soft capsule, its spirulina extract is derived from the phycocyanin of Undersun Biomedtech Corp. The product has health care effects on daily immune enhancement, stress relief and liver detoxification.
(5) Anti-cancer and anti-tumor Phycocyanin has been shown to inhibit tumor cell proliferation and induce cancer cell apoptosis, including world-threatening diseases including lung cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer.
Application of biochemical reagents Phycocyanin can be used as a reagent for some photodynamic studies in biology and cytology, and also as a biochemical marker. Its fluorescent effect is 30 times that of ordinary fluorescein. It can be used as a biochemical tracer in immunodetection, fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry.
Application of crop fertilizer Phycocyanin is a highly anti-immune protein. The product is used in foliar fertilization, which can obviously promote the photosynthesis of plants. At the same time, due to the photodynamic reaction and light excitation of phycocyanin caused by light energy, the photosensitive reaction occurs, making the product resistant Virus antibacterial effect. A joint experiment conducted by the Beijing Academy of Agricultural Sciences and the Shandong Vegetable Research Institute showed that the phycocyanin extracted from Spirulina contains specific auxins.
Product introduction At present, the company supplies phycocyanin for food grade, pharmaceutical grade, reagent grade, and cosmetics. It also provides fluorescent phycocyanin, modified phycocyanin, phycoerythrin and other specifications phycocyanin raw materials. Widely used in food, medicine, cosmetics, biochemical research and other fields. In addition, the company also produces spirulina ultrafine powder and safflower yellow pigment.
