New Roots Herbal’s Plant Digestive Enzymes helps resupply your body with natural plant-digestive enzyme, lost from cooked and processed food. These enzymes digest fats, proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, minerals, grains, and fibres.
When it is in its natural state, raw and unprocessed, the food you eat contains—along with its many nutrients—the enzymes you need to break down that food. But many of us exist on a diet of primarily cooked food, and digestive enzymes are extremely sensitive to heat. In fact, they are more sensitive to heat than vitamins, and are destroyed by any heat above 48 °C (118 °F); imagine what cooking does to digestive enzymes and to your digestion! Not only cooking, but also pasteurization, canning, and microwaving destroy digestive enzymes.
Our plant enzymes possess four major benefits over enzymes derived from the pancreas of animals.
Firstly—and obviously—, they are suitable for vegetarians.
Secondly, they are active over a broader range of foods than animal-derived enzymes.
Thirdly, they begin their work earlier in the digestive process than animal enzymes. Plant enzymes begin working in the stomach; animal enzymes begin working only later, in the intestines. So plant enzymes spare the body a lot of work by predigesting food before it is exposed to your body’s own pancreatic enzymes.
Finally, plant enzymes avoid the possible risk inherent in animal-derived enzymes that your body will recognize them as its own pancreatic enzymes and diminish its own production.
DIRECTIONS OF USE
Price was very fair, good product
I buy this regularly and it is such a excellent digestive enzymes.I have digestive problem after surgery,try bunch of enzymes,nothing works.This is the best and only fabulous enzyme which works miracles.High quality and price is the lowest on Healthy Planet.
I think this is helping me with gas/bloating.
I still sometimes get bad gas... but that tends to be when I over-indulge. It can only do so much! Fairly sure it's helping the rest of the time when I am more moderate in my intake :)
I use these enzymes on a regular basis. I like that they are plant-based and include a wide variety that covers many types of food.
I was experiencing lots of difficulty with painful gas after meals and with IBS/constipation. Since starting to take these, I am digesting better and don't feel like I need to go home and lie down after eating out.
