THE ROLE OF PHYCOCYANIN ON HEALTH
Many studies have been done on this incredible molecule. All our quotations are taken from articles, books and scientific studies *.
INFLAMMATION - IMMUNITY - ALLERGIES
Phycocyanin participates in the increasing of IgA (immunoglobulin A). They are the antibodies found in secretions like saliva or sweat, inhibiting pathogens from linking with our cells. *
It also participates in the reduction of IgE, which is responsible for inflammatory and allergic reactions. *
Phycocyanin prevents the formation of two important inflammatory components; Leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), which are involved in some inflammatory reactions and in the genesis of asthma. *
Studies have proved that phycocyanin is capable of inhibiting viruses like the flu, mumps, measles, herpes or the cytomegalovirus. *
Phycocyanin also reduces symptoms of a stuffy nose and itchy eyes or skin. *
HOPE FOR LEUKEMIA*
Currently chemotherapy helps to normalize the amount of white blood cells of a patient, but doesn’t prevent the development of the sickness. Phycocyanin could also allow the normalization of the amount of white blood cells, especially with patients suffering from chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) according to a study published in 2000.*
CANCER, A HEALTHY NEW STRATEGY*
More and more studies have shown that Phycocyanin possesses a positive effect against cancer, it can stop the growth of cancerous cells and destroy them. It has no negative effect on healthy cells.*
Studies have observed the beneficial effect of Phycocyanin with chemotherapy medication; decrease in dose and side effects, hepatic protection and potentialisation of the medicine.*
Phycocyanin improves the enzymatic activity of the cellular nucleus as well as the reparative DNA synthesis.*
DETOXIFYING AND ANTI-AGING
Every oxidative reaction in our body is produced by free radicals. These free radicals cause aging and the development of several diseases. Vitamins C, E and beta-Carotene count for excellent antioxidants.*
Interesting fact, phycocyanin is 20x more powerful than vitamin C and 16x more powerful than vitamin E.*
THE LIVER, VITAL ORGAN *
Phycocyanin is detoxifying and hepatoprotective. It reduces hepatotoxicity induced by chemical products like medication, chemotherapy and heavy metals.*
It is capable of bonding with bile acids and allowing the fecal excretion of cholesterol and bile acids, providing a significant cholesterol decrease.*
A study has revealed that Phycocyanin creates a reduction of Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL), of serum cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides. It also reduces the occurrence of atheroma in the arteries.*
Takaï has shown that Phycocyanin is capable of lowering blood sugar levels, demonstrating the possibility of controlling type 2 diabetes.*
KIDNEYS, OUR FILTER *
Phycocyanin offers a protection to our kidney cells by pushing free radicals away. It also possesses a great antiurolithic potential, preventing and treating kidney stones and renal colic.*
THYROID, HORMONAL BALANCE*
Phycocyanin regulates the thyroid gland. We can notice an improvement of the menstruation cycle, of heart rate regulation and an action on depression and intellectual vitality.*
Phycocyanin helps Hashimoto's thyroiditis by acting directly on the inflammation.*
SLEEP IN PEACE*
Phycocyanin acts on the melatonin secretion metabolism. Melatonin is the hormone responsible for a better quality sleep, refreshing sleep.*
It also has an influence on the production of serotonin which is known as the happiness hormone, basically a natural anti-depressant.*
The advice of a medical professional is always recommended.
We do not make claims, all our sources are taken from books, articles, scientific studies. *
No studies have shown any negative or harmful effects on the body. *
