Balance and Calm Whole-Body Inflammation.
Cyactiv is a proprietary phycocyanin extract from Spirulina. Phycocyanin is the blue pigment in blue-green algae and is a potent active compound proven to help balance and calm systemic inflammation associated with a myriad of health issues. Balancing whole-body inflammation assists the homing of stem cells to affected tissues.*Cerule Cyactiv - Cerule Skincare Product Data Sheet Download
Why is Inflammation Management Important?
Inflammation is a double-edged sword. While short-term inflammation is a necessary and healthy response to injury, recurring inflammation due to prolonged stressors can cause a healthy inflammation response to get stuck in an overactive cycle. If the body is unable to reset the balance, sustained inflammation can reduce the ability of stem cells to find affected tissues, compromising the body's ability to self-heal.
Backed by Science
Phycocyanin is well researched and is known as a selective inhibitor of COX-2, a key enzyme involved in inflammation. Cyactiv is the result of 7 years of research and development and includes 4 human clinical trials and numerous in-vitro studies. A recent dose study confirmed that consumption of Cyactiv was safe and not associated with any side-effects linked to stomach, heart, kidney or liver function.
PRODUCT EDUCATION Inflammation
What is Inflammation?
Redness, swelling, tenderness, heat and disturbed function of an area of the body, especially as a reaction of tissues to injurious agents.
For example, if you have a cut, an injury or an infection, local compounds are then released to increase the blood flow to that area to attract immune cells and adult stem cells, so that these cells can do their job and repair the tissue.
Then when this area is repaired, everything goes back to normal. However if the area doesn’t repair and fully recover, the inflammation continues and can become systemic and silent.
Examples of this are:
Getting up in the morning with pain in your knees, discomfort and stiffness in your hips, shoulder or neck. You may have trouble turning your head to back your car, lifting your arms to hang out the washing, difficulty turning over in bed at night.
These are all examples of inflammation that you can feel. When you have inflammation that you can feel, you can guarantee that you have inflammation that you can’t feel.
For example, in the blood vessels or the liver, lungs, or heart etc. Where we don’t have pain, this is systemic inflammation and this is the engine that drives many of the most feared illness of middle and old age.
How does inflammation affect Adult Stem Cells?
It prevents adult stem cells from properly identifying the tissues that are in need of repair.
Other common benefits people report:
- Reduces discomfort
- Increases mobility
- Helps to balance whole body inflammation
- Promotes health
- Increases energy
- Improves repair
- Easier to turn your head and back the car
- Easier to lift arms above head

Cyactiv is a patented extract of spirulina standardized to phycocyanin content of greater than 30%. Phycocyanin acts in synergy with other compounds present in the extract, in order to calm and balance whole body inflammation.
Cyactiv is a spirulina-based food supplement produced by a unique filtration process that enables the concentration of phycocyanin.
The extraction process to produce Cyactiv is exclusively water based and does not include any solvent or synthetic compound. The concentration of phycocyanin is > 30%. Cyactiv is on average 4 times more concentrated in phycocyanin than standard spirulina. The drying process is carried out at low temperature to preserve all the nutritional properties of Cyactiv.
The filtration process and drying steps are patented and exclusive to Cerule, resulting from many years of research and development. This expertise enables the company to control the process from the raw material to the finished product, setting up high quality control standards at all steps of the process.
The benefits of consuming Cyactiv have been assessed in three different clinical studies, which have been published in peer-reviewed journals (Jensen et al., 2016a ; Jensen et al., 2016b ; Jensen et al., 2015).
Arthrospira platensis, also known as spirulina, is a blue-green algae like AFA (Aphanizomenon flos aquae). It provides a wide variety of micronutrients and macronutrients and contains specific active compounds such as phycocyanin, which constitutes the blue pigment of blue-green algae.
Spirulina is cultivated and harvested in sunny regions of the world such as the United States, Greece, Spain, Japan and India (Karkos et al., 2011). It is well known for its nutritional richness in macro and micronutrients. It is composed of more than 60% proteins and 14% of carbohydrates. It is a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, essential amino acids, and micronutrients such as Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Selenium. It is used in nutritional supplementation all over the world.
Spirulina is a good source of phenolic compounds and beta carotenes, which represent two categories of antioxidants. It supports the immune system (Finamore et al., 2017) and helps maintain vitality.
After more than 2 decades of experience in aquatic agriculture and harvesting, Cerule has become an expert in the production of exclusive and unique extracts. Recently, Cerule has extended its production capacities to transform spirulina in order to isolate phycocyanin and other active compounds present in spirulina.
Does not contain dairy, gluten, artificial aromas, preservatives or coloring agents. Capsule exclusively composed of ingredient from vegetable origin.
Suitable for vegetarian consumers.
Cerule has no knowledge of any contraindications with regards to the consumption of Cyactiv during / while pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, as a precaution, we advise that you consult your physician.
Cerule has no knowledge of any contraindications or interactions between Cyactiv and other medication. However, if you are taking prescription drugs or if your health requires medical attention, we advise that consult your physician.
