The Roadmap to Better Digestion

The Roadmap to Better Digestion

If your digestive system were a highway, its roughly 30′ (9 m) would be littered with construction zones, detour billboards, speed-limit warnings, and toll booths. Road hazards that affect digestion include the health of vital organs such as the liver and pancreas, age-related decline of enzyme production, lack of fluid intake, stimulants including caffeine, nicotine, and emotional health, to name a few. Even those of us with the best dietary habits have no guarantee we’ll harvest the full bounty of nutrients from the food we eat.

Poor digestion has symptoms which can include bad breath, acid reflux, bloating, constipation, excessive flatulence, and diarrhea. Dysfunctional digestion can even lead to malnutrition in extreme cases. Consultation with a health-care professional is recommended to rule out any major underlying causes; this will help you determine the road you will take to better digestion.

New Roots Herbal has two distinct formulas suitable for chronic digestive issues as well as acute situations. Chronic digestive concerns can be simply age-related, and acute digestive distress may often be as simple as indulging in too much holiday food that you may have an intolerance for. Be mindful of adequate dietary fibre intake and water consumption, which are also critical for digestive health and regularity. Both formulas adopt a synergistic approach to the digestion of carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Let’s review them.

Critical Support for Digestive Organs

New Roots Herbal Digestive Enzymes is a potent formula derived from both plant and animal sources. Its comprehensive approach to digestion begins with betaine hydrochloride to arouse the digestive process within the stomach. Secretion of hydrochloric acid within the stomach can decline with age; this can have a “domino effect” on digestion, along with contributing to food intolerances. Difficulty with digestion can often limit food choices and detract from a once well-balanced diet. The inclusion of a potent pancreatic extract delivers therapeutic amounts of protease, amylase, and lipase to drive digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats respectively. Breakdown of dietary fats is a problem for many; a potency-validated 10:1 ox bile extract emulsifies dietary fats to ease absorption. Papain sourced from papaya fruit, and the enzyme pepsin A further amplify protein digestion for ease of intestinal absorption. This broad-spectrum formula has a unique therapeutic niche for those seeking digestive relief.

Plant-Sourced Relief

New Roots Herbal Plant Digestive Enzymes is a multisourced, vegetarian-friendly alternative to Digestive Enzymes. Its broad spectrum of ingredients features 20 distinct enzymes that focus on the digestion of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, along with the breakdown of stubborn fibre. Stimulating digestion also makes critical minerals within food more biologically available for their many roles. It also contains lactase, a lactose-specific enzyme which drives dairy digestion; this enzyme is indispensable for those who experience gas and bloating from dairy sources that are often difficult to avoid in many foods. Bromelain from pineapple and papaya-sourced papain are a robust tandem of plant-sourced enzymes which work together to break down stubborn proteins to their amino-acid constituents. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein formation. The maintenance of muscle mass is critical for healthy aging, which makes efficient digestion of protein a priority for strength, posture, and balance.

Discover which formula best suits you on your journey to better digestive health. Ultimately, the time-honoured cliché “you are what you eat” distills down to the fact your health reflects the nutrients your digestive system makes available to you.

To your health!
