We introduce a product in all complex normed vector spaces, which generalizes the inner product of complex inner product spaces. Naturally the question occurs whether the polarization inequality of line (3.1) is fulfilled. We show that the polarization inequality holds for the product from Definition 1.1. This also yields a new proof of the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality in complex inner product spaces, which does not rely on the linearity of the inner product. The proof depends only on the norm in the vector space.
