BINMEI Functional Beverage Raw Material-Spirulina Extract (Phycocyanin)

Phycocyanin is an active protein isolated from cyanobacteria. The rare porphyrin pigment protein is a natural edible pigment allowed by the state. It is more important to study that phycocyanin can significantly reduce the damage to normal human leukocytes and stimulate the formation of erythrocytes and platelets during radiation chemotherapy. To improve the immunity and protect the liver. It has unique fluorescent properties and good biological efficacy.

It has the same properties as protein. The products are blue particles or powder. Dissolve in water. Insoluble in alcohol and oil. Organic solvents such as ethanol can lead to irreversible denaturation of phycocyanin. The color of its aqueous solution is bright blue. Each phycocyanin monomer is composed of a subunit and B subunit, its monomer (AB) molecular weight is about 40 thousand D, pH6.5-8.0 is in trisomy (AB), pH4.5-6.0, in the form of six body (AB), and the molecular weight is about 230 thousand D. No matter in the form of monomer, trisomy or six body, the color of sapphire is beautiful in visible light, and the color and lustre are bright. It is quite stable under various physical and chemical factors. Related information, please obtain product safety technical manuals from production or sales enterprises, and guard against counterfeiting.

The application of phycocyanin is very extensive. It can be summarized as follows:

(1) Natural food pigment: phycocyanin is a water-soluble pigment, non-toxic, pure blue, bright and lovely, can be used as food colorants, cosmetics additives. Moreover, it is rich in protein, its amino acid composition is complete, and essential amino acids account for 37.2% of the total protein. It is the only natural blue pigment recognized by FDA in the United States. It has been listed in the catalogue of food additives in many countries (including China).

(2)Medical and health food: Phycocyanin has been proved to stimulate erythrocyte colony formation in vitro, similar to erythropoietin (EPO). Phycocyanin can help regulate a variety of important enzymes needed in the synthetic human body. It plays an important role in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and promoting the regeneration of human cells. At the same time, it can also regulate the immune system of the human body, enhance the function of the immune system and improve the resistance of the human body to the disease. At present, many kinds of phycocyanin compound drugs have been successfully developed abroad. It is believed that the protein has the function of promoting immunity and resisting diseases. The inhibitory effect of phycocyanin on some cancer cells is obvious. The latest research results show that phycocyanin can significantly inhibit tumor cell growth and tumor angiogenesis and induce apoptosis of tumor cells. It can reduce and eliminate the damage of radiation and chemotherapy to blood leukocyte cells, and accelerate the recovery of peripheral blood white blood cells and marrow nucleated cells and improve the immune system. Force, prevent tumor metastasis and relapse. A large number of experiments have proved that phycocyanin will be a very safe and valuable targeted therapy drugs and Tumor Photodynamic photosensitizer. We have provided about 50 kilograms of clinical pharmaceutical grade raw materials for the PLA 210 hospital.

(3)Cosmetic fields: phycocyanin is a kind of collagens, which has antioxidant, moisturizing, anti allergy, anti-inflammatory and freckle elimination functions. We have customized a number of cosmetics products for L'Oreal, Guangdong Danzi Group.

(4)Biology,chemistry and cytology:Phycocyanin is blue and fluorescence, which can be used as a biological and cytological research reagent for photodynamics. It can also be used as a biochemical marker. Another function of phycocyanin is fluorescein. Its fluorescence efficiency is 30 times that of ordinary fluorescein.

When stimulated by light, it can produce a strong red fluorescence, which is used in the diagnosis of cancer and cancer in vitro. It is of great significance for the diagnosis of early cancerous changes of cells. It can be used as a new photosensitizer and has a significant sensitization effect on the laser therapy of cancer. According to related research reports, the killing rate of laser on tumor cells increased from 12% to 88% and the cure rate of cancer increased by 55% with phycocyanin as photosensitizer.

(5) Agricultural applications: Phycocyanin is the most important class of phycobiliproteins photosensitive proteins, is the light harvesting antenna in algae cells. It also has rich nutrition and comprehensive amino acid composition. The product is used in foliar fertilization, which can obviously promote photosynthesis of plants. At the same time, the photosensitive reaction of phycocyanin to produce photodynamic and light excitation, and the product has antiviral and antibacterial effect.
