The phycocyanin can increase the activity of lymphocytes, improve
the body's immunity through the lymphatic system, and enhance the
body's ability to prevent disease and disease.
The phycocyanin is capable of scavenging peroxy, hydroxy, and
alkoxy radicals. Selenium-rich phycocyanin can be used as an
antioxidant to cleanse a series of toxic free radicals such as
superoxide and hydroperoxide groups. A powerful broad spectrum
antioxidant. It can eliminate pathological damage, cell aging and
other diseases caused by harmful free radicals generated during
physiological metabolism in the human body.
Many middle-aged and elderly people are prone to inflammatory
reactions due to a small illness, and even inflammation is much
more harmful than the pain itself. The phycocyanin is effective in
removing the hydroxyl groups in the cells and reducing the
inflammatory response induced by glucose oxidase, exhibiting
significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
4. improve anemia
On the one hand, phycocyanin can form soluble compounds with iron,
greatly improve the body's absorption of iron, and on the other
