Product Name: Spirulina Extract Phycocyanin

Specification: 18 color value

Appearance: Blue Fine powder

CAS No : 20298-86-6

Phycocyanin is natural light blue colorant extracted from blue-green algea (Spirulina ).It`s good water soluble, Alcohol and lipid insoluble. Phycocyanin accounts for as much as 20% protein and attaches itself to photosynthesizing membranes, also it`s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. It`s an accessory pigment to chlorophyll.Phycocyanin is derived from C-phycocyanin and allophycocyanin which have fluoresent properties that are valuable to research in immune assay kits. Phycocyanin is selective about which cells it attaches to, making it simple to track down


Phycocyanin Powder is a dark blue powder isolated from Spirulina. It mainly exists in cyanobacteria, red algae and saphenous algae. Phycocyanin is also usually divided into C- phycocyanin and R- phycocyanin, the former mainly exists in cyanobacteria, while the latter mainly exists in red algae. The two species of Cryptococcus are found in cyanobacteria. Phycocyanin Powder function is to absorb light (orange yellow) and transmit light energy. It is not only a protein, but also an excellent natural food coloring. It is also a good health food.


Main Function: 

1 Anti-cancer, anti-tumor.

Phycocyanin has been proved to inhibit the expansion of cancer cells. Scientists have

found that phycocyanin can inhibit cancer cells significantly. It can be made as a

anti-tumor adjuvant therapy to enhance the body's immune system in chemotherapy


In a scientific experiment, rats with liver cancers were fed with extracted phycocyanin.

Scientists have been found that the survival rate of rats fed with phycocyanin was much

higher than the control group. After 5 weeks, the treatment group had 90% survival rate,

while the untreated group only had 25%. After 8 weeks, 25% of the rats in the treatment

group survived, and all rats in the untreated group died. This shows that oral phycocyanin

can increase the survival rate of cancer-bearing organisms.


2 Anti-oxidant, clean free radicals

Phycocyanin can promote cell activity, remove the free radicals, improve ovarian function,

and promote the synthesis speed of elastin in the body. According to scientific researches,

phycocyanin has the effect of stimulating the production of red blood cell colonies, which

is similar to erythropoietin (epo). It can adjust the white blood cells and increase the

activity of lymphocytes. It also can increase physical stamina, promote the growth of red

blood cells, enhance the body's immune function and promote body’s growth.


 3 Anti-allergy

On January 7th, 2011, the research team of Taiwan University published a new study and

found that the purified phycocyanin had an inhibitory effect on all allergies.


4 Fluorescent agent and photosensitizer

Phycocyanin can be used as fluorescent agents. Its fluorescence efficacy is 30 times of

ordinary fluorescein. When excited by light, it can emit strong red fluorescence, which can

be used for clinical and in vitro diagnosis of tumors and cancers.It is great significance for

early cancer diagnosis of cells.

Phycocyanin can be used as a new type of photosensitizer. It can significantly increase

the sensitivity of cancer laser therapy. According to relevant research reports, using the

phycocyanin as a photosensitizer can increase the killing rate of laser to tumor cells from

12% to 88%, and the cancer cure rate can be increased by 55%.
