Intelligent food supplement made from the natural plant pigments chlorophyll (geen) and phycocyanin (blue).
The fact that chlorophyll is not only essential for plants, but can also contribute to our health is widely known. The health-promoting effect has already been scientifically proven in many studies.
The green plant dye chlorophyll and the red blood dye, haemoglobin, are very similar in their molecular structure. Chlorophyll is therefore said to have a blood-forming function.
The human body can absorb chlorophyll only very poorly since it is not water-soluble. For this reason, PhotoActive+ contains two water-soluble forms of the green plant dye: Sodium-Magnesium-Chlorophyllin (200 mg/capsule) and Sodium-Copper-Chlorophyllin (100 mg/capsule). With these agents we can ensure the greatest possible bioavailability.
Algae also carry out photosynthesis. The pigment, which gives blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) their typical blue color, is called phycocyanin. One of the most famous blue-green algae is Spirulina. Just like chlorophyll, phycocyanin has the task of capturing solar photons and initiating metabolic processes.
Unlike chlorophyll, phycocyanin is water-soluble and can be absorbed by the body, but this fact alone was not satisfying for us. With the aim of achieving the highest possible bioavailability, we decided to develop a liposomally bound form of the active ingredient. The world’s first liposomally bound phycocyanin! A liposome is a mi-croscopic vesicle consisting of a double lipid layer. Our phycocyanin is embedded in such a liposome. The liposomal formulation changes the structure of the active substance in such a way that it can be better absorbed by the body. In the protection of the vesicle, the active ingredient is sheltered against premature metabolism and transported exactly to where it is needed. In addition, the liposomal structure extends plasma half-life.
Even without the excitation by light, PhotoActive+ is an innovative and revolutionary active ingredient complex.
If the chlorophyllin-phycocyanin complex is additionally stimulated by laser light of certain wavelengths, it can have even stronger (photodynamic) effects.
As we already know, chlorophyll absorbs sunlight during photosynthesis. However, it is not able to use the complete color spectrum, but only the red (620-660 nm) and blue parts (400-450 nm). Medical laser therapy makes use of this finding: Photosensible substances such as chlorophyllin or phycocyanin can be stimulated by light of a specific wavelength in order to develop their photodynamic effect.
For chlorophyllin, a combination with the red and blue laser is recommended.
The absorption spectrum of phcocyanine is at a wavelength of between 580 and 660 nm. It absorbs light in the yellow-red range and can therefore be excited by the yellow and red laser.
