Enzymes are complex protein molecules and act as accelerators of biochemical reactions. They are considered true miracle cures for acute and chronic inflammations and can promote digestion.


Without enzymes, virtually nothing works in our body. They are part of all our cells and tissues, controlling and regulating almost every biochemical reaction there. They control the metabolism without being consumed themselves. In short: without protein molecules there would be no life. A therapy with enzymes can be used for acute and chronic inflammations, to combat the causes of pain or even as an adjunct in cancer therapy.


This is because enzymes ensure regulated 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 and natural food supplements in Germany and places the highest value on the continuous further and new development of health products on a scientific basis.


Enzymes fulfil different functions depending on their structure. As bio-catalysts, they accelerate metabolic processes. For example, they break down everything we eat into easily digestible parts. "They ensure that our blood flows optimally or clots quickly enough after vascular injuries. Their individual shape and structure determine what they actually do," says Frank Felte. 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. In terms of their composition, enzymes are either proteins or proteides.


Frank Felte knows: "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." One example is digestive enzymes. They may be tiny, but they have a gigantic effect. Digestive enzymes ensure that large food components, such as a piece of pizza, 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 transport them into our cells.


"Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies lose the ability to produce sufficient digestive enzymes, 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," emphasises Frank Felte. Since digestive enzymes in food are destroyed during cooking and frying, people should take them in via food supplements.


With the product "Digezyme", Natura Vitalis has developed a multi-enzyme complex with the five most important digestive enzymes in high-dose form. These include alpha-amylase, protease, lactase, lipase and cellulase. The special feature of "Digezyme" is that the enzymes it contains are dosed in a very specific ratio to each other to provide the best possible support for the digestion of nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates, fats and dietary fibres. Likewise, all enzymes in "Digezyme" are in highly pure form and of the highest quality, because they are produced from fungi and bacteria by means of fermentation and are thus free of animal ingredients at the same time.
