Enzymes, i.e. specialised proteins, are true miracle cures. It is therefore important to have a healthy and varied diet in order to supply the body with additional digestive enzymes from a wide variety of foods.

Without enzymes, virtually nothing works in our body. They are a component of all our cells and tissues, controlling and regulating almost every biochemical reaction there. They control the metabolism without being consumed themselves. The famous quote by the German philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach, who lived from 1804 to 1872, fits this: "You are what you eat!" And indeed, there is much truth in this quote, because ultimately we are what we digest. And for good digestion, in turn, special enzymes, the so-called digestive enzymes, play a very decisive role.

"Enzymes are small, but they have a big effect. Digestive enzymes ensure that large food components are broken down into the smallest fragments. This is the only way our body is able to utilise them. Without digestive enzymes, our organism would not be able to digest carbohydrates, fats, proteins, etc. and channel them into our cells," says Frank Felte, founder and owner of Natura Vitalis, one of the best-known and leading manufacturers of natural vital substances and food supplements in Germany (www.naturavitalis.de). The company is based in Essen and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.

The problem: With increasing age, the body loses the ability to produce sufficient digestive enzymes itself, which can be accelerated by stress, an unhealthy diet and sugar. This then becomes noticeable through digestive disorders, a bloated belly, heartburn, constipation, diarrhoea or even food allergies or intolerances. It is therefore important to eat a healthy and varied diet in order to provide the body with additional digestive enzymes through a wide variety of foods. The problem here, however, is that the digestive enzymes are destroyed by the preparation of the food, such as cooking or frying.

Natura Vitalis has therefore developed the product "Digezyme" with a patented multi-enzyme formula. "Digezyme" contains a unique, patented multi-enzyme complex that can positively support digestion in a variety of ways. The enzymes alpha-amylase, protease, lactase, lipase and cellulase help in particular with the digestion of cellulose (fruit and vegetables), fats, lactose (milk, yoghurt, cheese etc.) proteins, starch and carbohydrates. Enzymes ensure regular digestion, optimal blood flow and an intact defence system that protects against hostile viruses, bacteria, fungi and allergens. "If digestion is disturbed or inflammations accumulate, it may have to do with a lack of enzymes," knows Frank Felte, founder of Natura Vitalis. The company is one of the largest and best-known manufacturers of natural vital substances in Germany. "Sometimes it can already help to include enzyme-rich foods in the diet. For other complaints, on the other hand, the enzymes have to be supplied as preparations in order to achieve relief."

Frank Felte also points out another aspect. "They ensure that our blood flows optimally or clots quickly enough after vascular injuries. Their individual shape and structure determine what they actually do. Because each enzyme can only interact with another substance if it has the perfect fit. Only together can they form a complex that accelerates certain reactions in the body. The effect of enzymes is that they lower the required activation energy and thus increase the reaction speed. By composition, enzymes are either proteins or proteids."
