Enzymes and our acid-base balance
What are enzymes?
Under the microscope, they look inconspicuously small, but in our body they still have great effects: enzymes are vital organic compounds. They are formed in the cell and control the metabolism of the organism. Most enzymes are proteins, and act as catalysts (accelerators) of chemical reactions.
Enzymes drive many important biochemical reactions in the body. In this way, they convert substances into other substances and break down large molecules. Therefore, enzymes are also referred to as biocatalysts.
