Pigment-protein complex Phycocyanin/PC Blue powder, soluble in water
Phycocyanin helps regulate, synthetic human metabolic needs of the many important enzymes, inhibit the growth of cancer cells and promote regeneration, maintain ovary, promote synthesis of elastin plays an important role in the human body, and phycocyanin in regulating the body's immune system, strengthen the immune system, increase the body's resistance to disease. Therefore, phycocyanin is food expert hailed as "food diamond". It has very good results in the following areas.
1, The resistance of cancer cells and tumors. Phycocyanin has been shown to inhibit cancer cell expansion. Scientists found that the function of phycocyanin inhibit cancer cells. Can be made into anti-tumor adjuvant therapy, adjuvant therapy to chemotherapy can enhance the body's immunity.
2, Antioxidant, free radical scavenging. Phycocyanin can promote cell activity and scavenge free radicals, improve ovarian function, promote rapid synthesis of elastin. Scientific research shows that phycocyanin stimulates erythrocyte colony-forming, similar to erythropoietin (EPO) role to adjust the activity of white blood cells and enhance lymphocyte; increase energy, promote red blood cell growth, it can improve immune function, promoting growth and development.
3, Allergy Taiwan University research team January 7 new study, found that purification of phycocyanin is allergic to all effects.
