Pancreatic enzymes are the foundation for the digestion and absorption of the food we eat. The aging process and the various diseases that afflict the pancreas can drastically reduce the production of these enzymes and lead to bloating, gas, and feeling of fullness that persist due to impaired digestion. Each capsule of New Roots Herbal’s Digestive Enzymes is formulated with protease, amylase, and lipase to help digest protein, carbohydrates, and fat, respectively.
This pure porcine-sourced pancreatin 4× (four times the strength) is bolstered with betain hydrochloride, ox bile salts, papain (sourced from papaya), and pepsin for maximum intestinal digestive breakdown of the food we eat. This formula is particulary useful for people with low digestive enzyme levels.
