Glossary

We’re an open book.

Get to know our natural ingredients. You will be amazed at what nature has in store for our health. Or did you already know that the extract of the Japanese cord tree helps with vein weakness?

Alpha-linolenic acid

Alpha-linolenic acid is a triple unsaturated fatty acid that our body cannot synthesize itself. For this reason, it must be supplied in sufficient quantities with food. Alpha-linolenic acid acts against coronary heart disease, regulates blood pressure, influences cholesterol metabolism and has anti-inflammatory effects. It also has a positive influence on rheumatic diseases and on bone metabolism.

Alpha-amylase

Alpha-amylase belongs to the digestive enzymes. It consists of two under enzymes that break down starch and glycogen. In this way they make the absorbed carbohydrates usable for the body. Additional effect: Alpha-amylase keeps the skin in good condition and protects against free radicals.

Alpha-lipoic acid

Alpha-lipoic acid is used to treat nerve pain and damage. It also reduces sensory disorders in blood sugar disorders. The blood supply to the nerves is improved and it provides energy in the form of glucose. Alpha-lipoic acid also has an antioxidant effect, i.e. it binds free radicals.

Pineapple fruit extract

The pineapple fruit is a true power cocktail of various vitamins, fruit enzymes, trace elements, minerals and coenzymes. All these substances have the task of maintaining the biochemical balance in the body and keeping the metabolism at full speed.

Ascorbic acid

Ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, is very important for the biosynthesis of collagen and the formation of amino acids. Vitamin C is a radical scavenger, protecting the cells from damage and thus from cancer, arteriosclerosis and cataracts. The antioxidant effect is amazing.

Bamboo Extract

Bamboo has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Young bamboo shoots contain an extremely high proportion of silicic acid, which strengthens connective tissue and is said to have a stabilizing effect on bones, joints, intervertebral discs and the spine. The leaves of the plant produce an extract with excellent antioxidant and regenerative effects. It is also effective against nervousness, bleeding, fever and bronchitis.

Beta-carotin

Beta-carotene (also known as provitamin A) is a secondary plant substance from the carotenoid family. It regulates cell growth, controls immune system reactions and has a strong antioxidant effect. Beta-carotene can protect against increased cholesterol levels as well as against heart diseases that can lead to a stroke or a heart attack.

Yeast

Brewer’s yeast ensures an active metabolism and strengthens the immune system and cell protection. In addition, it sharpens concentration and is effective against fatigue, high blood sugar and is also considered a vegetable source of vitamin B12.

Cellulose is an essential component of plant cell walls and serves as a scaffolding material there. Cellulose is used as a vegetarian and vegan thickening and separating agent, stabilizer and filler.

Chlorophyl-line

Chlorophyll is the green pigment of the leaves. It helps the human organism to build up new blood cells, as it is very similar to the body’s red blood cell pigment. Chlorophyll also regulates wound healing, provides a pleasant body odour and remedies iron and magnesium deficiency. Chlorophyll also has a detoxifying effect.

Chromium (chrome picolinate)

Chromium is an essential trace element, which increases its biological usability by binding to picolinic acid (chromium picolinate) and can therefore be better absorbed by the organism. Chromium is used to regulate insulin levels and helps to stabilise and maintain normal blood sugar levels. In addition, chromium promotes the metabolism of macro nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and lipids).

Citrus fruit extract

Citrus fruit extract is a natural booster for vitamins and has a strong antioxidant effect synergistically with vitamin C.

It helps with cold sores, herpes and other viral infections and regulates high blood pressure, high blood lipid levels and supports wound healing.

Lactase

Lactase is an enzyme that plays an important role in our digestion. It breaks down the milk sugar lactose in such a way that it can be properly utilized by our body. If the enzyme is not present or only in small amounts, this can lead to lactose intolerance.

Lactobacteria

If the bacterial culture in the intestine is out of balance, our whole organism goes crazy. Everything that leads to more good bacteria living in the intestines and everything that strengthens the intestinal mucosa is good for the intestines. A large number of such “good bacteria” are lactobacteria: They attack harmful bacteria and strengthen our immune system.

Linseed oil

Due to its very high content of omega-3 fatty acids, linseed oil has an extremely positive effect on our cardiovascular system, our joints and bones. It lowers cholesterol, strengthens our immune system, helps with depression and hyperactivity. It is also used in cancer therapy and supports our organism and organs. The intestinal flora also benefits from the mucilage present in linseed oil.

Lipases

Lipases belong to the group of digestive enzymes whose main task is to break down fats from food into simple fatty acids and glycerol, thus enabling the digestion of fats.

Pyridoxine hydrochloride, also known as pyridoxine and vitamin B6, plays an essential role in amino acid metabolism. Blood and nerve cells require a high proportion of vitamin B6, which is particularly important for nerve strength, muscle strength and relaxation.

Quercetin

Quercetin is a secondary plant substance and has a positive effect on general inflammation parameters, allergic reactions, blood circulation, blood pressure and wound healing.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is considered the “active ingredient of red wine” because it is mainly found in the grape skin and in the grape seeds, stems, vines and roots of the vine. It is said to have a life-prolonging effect and is said to help kill cancer cells, prevent diabetes, reduce fat and slow down aging.

Red fermented rice

Red rice is a fermentation product from traditional Chinese nutritional and medicinal medicine. It is produced during the preparation of white rice, which is fermented by the mould of the genus Monascus purpureus. In addition to the characteristic red colouring, the active ingredient monakolin-K is also released. This helps regulate cholesterol levels and fat metabolism.

Riboflavin

Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2 or as the “growth vitamin”, plays an important role in metabolic processes and energy production. Skin, hair and nails also need this vitamin to stay healthy. The effect of riboflavin also extends to the nervous system and blood cells. It also supports the conversion of food into energy.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin, which means that the body cannot produce it itself. Without a regular supply of vitamin B12 it is not possible for the body to maintain its own health in the long term. Vitamin B12 is therefore vital. It influences cell division and blood formation, is important for energy production, for building and maintaining cell membranes and protects the nerves in the central nervous system and brain. This vitamin influences our mood, perception and helps us to cope with stress.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 plays an essential role in amino acid metabolism. Blood and nerve cells require a high proportion of B6, a vitamin that is particularly important for nerve strength, muscle strength and relaxation. It is mainly used for the treatment of skin diseases and nausea. It also helps to strengthen the immune system and helps with poor concentration or learning disorders as well as sleep disorders and depression.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the water-soluble vitamins and is an important antioxidant. It intercepts free radicals in the blood, brain and body cells and makes them harmless. This vitamin has a preventive effect in all arteriosclerosis-related diseases such as high blood pressure, angina, heart attack, stroke and heart attacks. It strengthens the connective tissue and ensures the elasticity of the skin, tendons and blood vessels. It also regulates the release of hormones such as sex hormones, thyroid hormones, stress hormones and growth hormones. Vitamin C detoxifies strongly, stimulates the burning of fat in the muscles and increases the willingness to react and concentration and ensures relaxation and a positive mood.
