  • Ongoing Project Aims to Recover Nutritional Value From Seafood and Brewing Waste

    Preliminary findings from a UK government funded project focused on extracting value from seafood and beverage processing waste shows the process could potentially recover nutritional components such as glucosamine. The process involves an ionic liquid (IL) extraction process which selectively recovers targeted high value components under mild conditions. Ionic Liquids are clean, inexpensive solvents whose properties can be tailored for […]

  • Omega-3 may improve blood pressure during weight loss

    Consumption of fatty fish like salmon, or fish oil supplements, may reduce blood pressure during an energy-restricted diet, suggests a pan-European study. The blood pressure reducing benefits of salmon and fish oil were especially noticeable in people with initially low levels of docosahexanoic acid (DHA) in their cell membranes, according to findings published online ahead of print inNutrition. Over 300 young overweight […]

  • Scientists Add Jellyfish Gene to Monkeys

    In a controversial achievement, Japanese scientists announced they had created the world’s first transgenic primates, breeding monkeys with a jellyfish gene that made the animals’ skin glow a fluorescent green. The exploit opens up exciting prospects for medical researchers, they said, which could eventually lead to lab monkeys that replicate some of humanity’s most devastating diseases, providing a new model […]

  • Key Constituent in Spirulina “Phycocyanin” shows Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Hyperalgesic action

    The latest research finds that Phycocyanin has anti-inflammatory activity through the suppression of nitric oxide, prostaglandin E-2, tumor necrosis factor alpha and the Cox-2 enzyme. The researchers went on to say that this anti-inflammatory mechanism “may contribute, at least in part, to its anti-hyperalgesic activity.” Source: Cyanotech
