Answer:

Enzymes.

Explanation:

The general term for chemicals that speed up reactions are called catalysts. Enzymes are a class of catalysts—biological catalysts. Catalysts lower the activation energy to allow a reaction to occur, especially at lower temperatures. Catalysts are consumed usually at the beginning of a reaction but are regenerated by the end of the reaction.
