After many years of increasing knee pain, I was diagnosed with knee arthritis. I have always been very active (working in a clothing store, walking, cycling) and was afraid not being able to do so, especially whilst having more leisure time given my retirement. I was advised a change in lifestyle since I was overweight, and a regimen of Enzym Complex Classic.
I feel good, healthy and I am able to stay active. I am a grandmother now and it is a great feeling to be able – to try – to keep up with my grandchildren.

I am the typical amateur sports person. I played football all my life and still play occasionally, and I run to stay in shape. I was diagnosed with knee arthritis three years ago after dealing with a lingering knee injury. The doctor told me to carefully build up my training efforts instead of trying to run a marathon in my first training. I was advised to take Enzym Complex Classic. I have become better at listening to my body and feel good in this routine. I to take 2 capsules when I return from a run or in the evening before going to bed. At times, when training is more intense, I will take 2 times 2 capsules per day.

Vein inflammation had been bothering me for years. It is painful and limited my daily activities. I was advised the use of Enzym Complex Classic. Together with a change in lifestyle (I exercise more and eat healthier), I feel much better. Initially I used 4 capsules per day but now 2 capsules are sufficient. I feel comfortable doing my job as a nurse and enjoy my leisure time. I take two capsules in the morning immediately when I get out of bed. Given my morning routine, this is well before having my breakfast.

A quick transition through the stomach is essential and therefore it is recommended to take the capsules 30 minutes before and 90 minutes after a meal. Enzym Complex Classic has an additional protection for stomach fluids through a shellac coating (granule) of the ingredients.

In the case of enzymes, it is not so much the mg amount that is of interest, but rather their activity. Unfortunately, there is no way of specifying the activity of different enzymes as a common measure because each
enzyme has a very specific and usually unique mode of action and there are
numerous methods available to measure the activity of a single enzyme.
The International Pharmaceutical federation established a compendium of standardized methods to measure enzyme activity. Each method is specifically
designed to reflect the specific properties of the individual enzyme. The
activity measured with these methods is called FIP-activity, named after said
organization (French: "Fédération Internationale Pharmaceutique").
The quality of FIP is such, that the European Directorate for the Quality
of Medicines (EDQM) has adopted the FIP methods for most of its pharmaceutical enzyme monographies in its handbook, the European Pharmacopeia.
More details about the organisation FIP can be found here: https://www.fip.org/pharmaceutical-enzymes.
Since there is a specific FIP-method for each enzyme, FIP-activities from different enzymes cannot be added to obtain an overall or total FIP-activity of a product.
You can buy the product on this website and Amazon. But you can ask your pharmacist about the product as well. Enzym Complex Classic can be
