Natural Vitalizer with long-term factor

Functional drink with health benefits

substanz® works naturally and long-term, but how? The inimitable energy-mix makes the difference.


The caffeine in the guaraná plant is tied to natural tanning agents that make up about 25% of the plant. This link decomposes the caffeine during digestion and hence increases the effective duration through longer caffeine release – one building block in the long-term complex of substanz®.


Isomaltulose is a functional sugar that is produced via enzymatic treatment from beet sugar. It is the only added sugar and makes up about half of the sugar content in substanz®. The other half is natural sugar from the fruits quince, grapefruit and sea-buckthorn.

Regulatpro® Bio

This functional ingredient is manufactured by a patented, biotechnological process consisting of a mix of 12 fruits, nuts and vegetables. In a complex process, the raw materials are fermented. Here, the different components of the 12 raw materials are broken down into smaller molecules resembling a kind of pre-digestion.

Ginseng root

Ginseng (Panax ginseng) adds a nice aroma and has the favourable side effect that active components in the root complement the energetic drink substanz®. AAFP Info (PDF)

substanz raises up your energy level

The concept of substanz aims at the natural increase of energy levels in cells.

The human body demands energy for all processes. The molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the energy source in every cell of which the human body owns around 100 trillion. Therefore, energy in form of ATP is highly decentralised. The daily energy turnover, in form of the assembly and disassembly of ATP in the body, equals roughly the body mass of a person, for example 80 kg. A remarkable task every human needs to perform daily. Enzymes (before: ferments) support the process by lowering the activation energy – the energy to start a reaction – and hence limit the necessary energy input. The process of cascade fermentation™, used for the production of Regulatpro® Bio, takes those essential processes as an example to develop natural, supporting products with the same principle.
