Analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of a novel phycocyanin-rich microalgae extract, CyaninPlus.

CyaninPlus is an extract from microalgae. Its main component is Phycocyanin (PC), a known selective COX-2 inhibitor. with cardio- and neuro-protective effects. In addition to PC, CyaninPlus contains other anti-inflammatory compounds, different from PC, and with complementary anti-inflammatory properties.

The objective of this pilot study was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory properties of CyaninPlus in vitro, and conduct a clinical pilot study on the pain reducing effects when
human subjects consumed 1 gram daily.
