Phycocyanin, known as "Food Diamond", is worthy of both nutrition and health care
 
When it comes to diamonds, in addition to representing scarcity, they are often a symbol of quality and dignity. In the field of food nutrition, there is also such a kind of food, which is called "diamond" by industry experts, that is, phycocyanin.
 
Nutritional value of phycocyanin
 
Complete amino acid composition
 
60% - 70% of the protein in Spirulina mainly comes from phycocyanin, which endows Spirulina with rich nutritional value. The amino acid composition ratio of phycocyanin is very reasonable, among which 8 essential amino acids account for 37.2% of the total amino acid, and the content is very close to or close to the FAO recommended standard. When used in food fortification, phycocyanin can improve the biological efficiency of grain and the utilization rate of protein; When used in cosmetics, phycocyanin can provide the amino acids needed by the skin and play a nursing role in the skin surface and deep nutrition.
 
Promote human body's absorption of iron
 
The availability of iron in food is related to its binding mode, and heme iron is the most effective absorbable iron. In the plant diet, only 13-35% of iron can be absorbed by the body, which is far less than 60% of the exercise diet. Under similar digestion conditions, a Japanese study found that phycocyanin is similar to heme in structure and can form soluble compounds with iron, greatly improving the absorption of iron by the human body.
 
Health care value of phycocyanin
 
Enhance immunity
 
A mouse study showed that phycocyanin can significantly increase the number of antibody forming cells and the ability to produce antibodies of splenocytes of normal mice and mice with low immune function, so as to enhance the activity of immune cells and improve the immunity of the body, thus achieving the purpose of disease prevention and disease resistance.
 
Antioxidant
 
Phycocyanin is a powerful broad-spectrum antioxidant. It can remove a series of toxic free radicals such as peroxy, hydroxyl, alkoxy free radicals, superoxide and hydroperoxide groups, and prevent damage, cell aging, inflammatory reaction and other diseases caused by harmful free radicals. In addition, phycocyanin can inhibit the peroxidation induced by fe2+ and ascorbic acid. Oral administration of phycocyanin 50-300mg/kg can significantly inhibit the peroxidation.
 
Anti radiation & promoting hematopoiesis
 
Effective resistance to ultraviolet and other ionizing radiation is an important biological attribute of phycocyanin. As one of the main active components of cyanobacteria, phycocyanin can significantly inhibit the reduction of blood cells, and the damage or repair of hematopoietic stem cells plays an important role in hematopoietic functional radiation diseases. From this point of view, phycocyanin can reduce the light sensitivity of hematopoietic stem cells, prevent the reduction of stem cells, re promote cell proliferation, and help return to the home hematopoietic function.
 
Protect ovary
 
Premature ovarian failure is regarded as the "invisible killer" of women's health and beauty. A Dutch study showed that phycocyanin can improve the oxygen carrying capacity of ovarian cells and accelerate the proliferation of new ovarian cells. By eliminating free radicals in the body, promoting cell activity, and then play a role in eliminating ovarian inflammation and improving ovarian function.
 
Suppresses cancer cells
 
Phycocyanin has been proved to inhibit tumor cell proliferation and induce cancer cell apoptosis, including lung cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer, breast cancer and other world-threatening diseases. In 1986, the phycocyanin complex drugs and nutritional foods developed and produced by Kangpai AIDS Research Institute and confidence algae nutrition food company in Japan achieved outstanding cooperative effects on cancer and leukemia patients.
 
At present, phycocyanin has been widely used in food and medicine, cosmetics and beauty, biochemical research and other fields. The European and American markets have matured, and the domestic market demand is also gradually rising. It is expected that in the next decade, China will surpass Europe and the United States and become a new outbreak of phycocyanin.
