Organic phycocyanin

Organic phycocyanin is a natural pigment that is extracted from cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae. It is a protein-binding pigment that gives spirulina and other algae their characteristic blue-green color.

Organic phycocyanin has many health benefits, such as boosting immunity, reducing inflammation, protecting the liver and kidneys, enhancing brain function, improving blood circulation, and fighting oxidative stress. It also has anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-allergic, and anti-diabetic properties.

Organic phycocyanin can be used as a natural food colorant, a dietary supplement, a cosmetic ingredient, or a pharmaceutical agent. It has a pleasant, sweet flavor with mild sea vegetable notes. It can be added to smoothies, juices, yogurts, desserts, snacks, or salads to enhance their color and nutrition.
