What is Phycocyanin Powder?
The name "Phycocyanin Powder" is derived from the Greek "phyco" meaning "algae" and "kyanos" which means "dark blue".
Phycocyanin is the main component in spirulina extract. It is an accessory pigment to chlorophyll and has a characteristic light blue color, absorbing orange and red light.
Phycocyanin Powder is believed to support a healthy inflammatory response by inhibiting the key enzyme (COX-2) that is responsible for causing inflammation and chronic pain. Even though inflammation is the body's first line of defense, when it goes unchecked it may lead to degenerative diseases and promote premature aging. Studies have shown that when phycocyanin was evaluated as an antioxidant in vitro, it was able to scavenge a variety of free radicals, thus reducing oxidative stress.
The phycocyanin is a dark blue powder isolated from spirulina. Mainly found in cyanobacteria, red algae and cryptophyta. The Phycocyanin powder is usually also classified into C-phycocyanin and R-phycocyanin. The former is mainly present in cyanobacteria, while the latter is mainly present in red algae, both of which are present in cryptophyta. Its function is to absorb light (orange) and transmit light energy. It is both a protein and an excellent natural food coloring, as well as a good health food. Organic Phycocyanin Powder is a very rare natural nutrient that is only found in cyanobacteria.

Phycocyanin health benefits Benefits
Phycocyanin powder can fight free radicals and inhibit production of inflammatory signaling molecules, providing impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects ( 6 , 7 , 8 ). Summary Organic Phycocyanin Powder is the main active compound in spirulina. It has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Many antioxidants in spirulina have anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Chronic inflammation contributes to cancer and other diseases.Phycocyanin powder — the a plant pigment that gives spirulina its blue-green color — has been found to not only reduce inflammation in the body, but also block tumor growth and kill cancer cells. The immune-enhancing protein is being studied for its potential in cancer treatment.
Research has found that the protein in spirulina can reduce the body’s absorption of cholesterol, lowering cholesterol levels. Phycocyanin powder helps keep your arteries clear, reducing strain on your heart that can lead to heart disease and stroke-causing blo od clots.
The anti-inflammatory effect caused by spirulina's antioxidants may help people with allergies caused by pollen, animal hair, and dust. One study found that symptoms like congestion, sneezing, and itching were reduced significantly in participants, suggesting that spirulina may be a good alternative to allergy medications.
Immune System Support
Phycocyanin powder is rich in a range of vitamins and minerals essential for maintaining a healthy immune system, like vitamins E, C, and B6. Research finds that spirulina also boosts the production of white blood cells and antibodies that fight viruses and bacteria in your body.
May Maintain Eye and Oral Health
Spirulina is concentrated with zeaxanthin, a plant pigment that may reduce the risk of cataracts and age-related vision loss.

Phycocyanin is a pigment-protein complex that biologically functions cooperatively with chlorophyll in photosynthesis. Specifically, phycocyanin increases the efficiency of chlorophyll's oxygen production under low light conditions. Phycocyanins are blue in color which results from their absorption of red-orange wavelengths of light. They are found in cyanobacteria, a type of blue-green algae, that derives its energy from photosynthesis.
