Plant Digestive Enzymes

New Roots Herbal's Plant Digestive Enzymes replenish your body with natural plant-digestive enzymes lost during the cooking and processing of food. These enzymes efficiently break down fats, proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, minerals, grains, and fibers.

In its raw and unprocessed state, the food you consume contains the necessary enzymes, along with numerous nutrients, to facilitate its breakdown. However, a significant portion of our Nutrition Plan comprises cooked food, and digestive enzymes are highly sensitive to heat. They are more vulnerable to heat than vitamins, being destroyed at temperatures exceeding 48 °C (118 °F). Consider the impact of cooking, pasteurization, canning, and microwaving on digestive enzymes and, consequently, your digestion.

Plant enzymes offered by New Roots Herbal present four distinct advantages over enzymes sourced from animal pancreas.

Primarily, they cater to vegetarians.

Secondly, these enzymes are effective across a broader range of foods compared to animal-derived counterparts.

Thirdly, they initiate digestion earlier in the process, starting in the stomach, while animal enzymes commence their activity later, in the intestines. This means plant enzymes predigest food, alleviating the workload on the body before exposure to its own pancreatic enzymes.

Lastly, plant enzymes mitigate the potential risk associated with animal-derived enzymes, where the body may recognize them as its pancreatic enzymes, potentially diminishing its own production.
