New Roots Digestive Enzymes 100 CapsRegular price $33.99 Save $-33.99
New Roots Digestive Enzymes, 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 betaine hydrochloride, ox bile salts, papain (sourced from papaya), and pepsin for a maximum intestinal digestive breakdown of the food we eat.

Ginger is one of the most widely used roots, both for culinary purposes and for medicinal ones. Recent medical studies have confirmed the ancient uses of ginger as a carminative, cholagogues, antitussive, and diaphoretic, as well as to help the absorption of other remedies throughout the body.
Ginger is also known for its expectorant action on the upper respiratory tract, suppressing coughs, and encouraging the release of mucus and phlegm. With its diaphoretic action, promoting sweating and increasing circulation, it is additionally useful for colds and low-grade fevers. Ginger tea has long been a standard remedy for sore throats, colds, and flu. Recent studies have found that ginger lowers blood cholesterol and reduces blood clotting.
Ginger is used for nausea, vomiting, motion sickness, vertigo, morning sickness, loss of appetite, stomach ache, dyspepsia, flatulence, indigestion, bile flow, colds, coughs, influenza, fevers, and high cholesterol, as well as an antioxidant, as an anticoagulant, and to thin the blood.

New Roots Evening Primrose Oil 1000mgRegular price $24.99 Save $-24.99
Evening primrose is native to North America. Originally used for the treatment of asthma, stomach and digestive disorders, and bruises, there is renewed interest in the herb because of the oil in this plant. Approximately 70% of the oil is cis-linoleic acid, and as much as 9% cis-gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The oil also contains campestrol and beta-sitosterol. GLA is an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). PGE1 has anti-inflammatory properties and may also act as a blood thinner and blood-vessel dilator.
The anti-inflammatory properties of EPO have been studied in double-blind research with people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. Some, but not all, studies have reported that EPO supplementation provides significant benefits to these people. GLA, the primary active ingredient in EPO, has anticancer activity in test-tube experiments. Primrose oil has been used to treat the symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome: irritability, headaches, breast tenderness, and bloating; it has also been helpful in the treatment of eczema. There are claims that increased doses help rheumatoid arthritis and slow the progression of multiple sclerosis.
Linoleic acid, a common fatty acid found in nuts, seeds, and most vegetable oils (including EPO), should theoretically convert to PGE1, but many things can interfere with this conversion, including disease, the aging process, saturated fats, hydrogenated oils, blood-sugar problems, and inadequate amounts of vitamin C, magnesium, zinc, and B vitamins. Supplements that provide GLA circumvent these conversion problems, leading to a more predictable formation of PGE1.

New Roots L-Theanine 30 VCapsRegular price $10.99 Save $-10.99
l-Theanine is the amino acid critical for its calming influence on cognitive function. It crosses the blood-brain barrier to help establish a state of relaxation while maintaining alertness. Upon exposure to the brain, it stimulates production of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the chemical produced by the brain that blocks excitatory stimuli that contribute to stress.
l-Theanine follows a similar pathway to prescription drugs from the benzodiazepine group (Valium, Xanax), without the risk of harmful side effects or addiction. Studies have also shown l-Theanine to encourage alpha wave activity associated with a state of serenity and mental clarity. It also insulates the nervous system from stress that can cause dangerous spikes in blood pressure, and carbohydrate cravings that result in accumulation of stubborn belly fat.
· May help improve mood and concentration, while decreasing anxiety and stress
· Supports healthy cardiovascular function

New Roots L-Lysine 100CapsRegular price $16.99 Save $-16.99
l-Lysine is one of numerous amino acids that the body needs for growth and tissue repair. It is classified as one of the nine “essential” amino acids because our bodies do not produce it. Like all amino acids, lysine is a building block for proteins. It also plays a role in the production of various enzymes, hormones, and disease-fighting antibodies.
The richest sources of l-Lysine include red meats, fish, and dairy products (milk, eggs, and cheese). Vegetables are generally a poor source of lysine, with the exception of legumes (beans, peas, and lentils). The daily recommended requirement for an adult is approximately 12 mg/kgbw, which represents approximately 800 mg. While most of the needs for lysine are met through dietary sources, supplements are now popular for treating and preventing specific ailments as well. Lysine has a net positive charge at physiological pH values, making it one of the three basic (with respect to charge) amino acids. This polar amino acid is commonly found on the surfaces of proteins and enzymes, and sometimes appears in the active site. Lysine is incorporated into proteins at the rate of 7% on a molar basis compared to other amino acids.
Researchers are exploring supplementation and the consumption of lysine-rich foods for lowering cholesterol, improving athletic performance, and enhancing recovery after surgery. Some professionals recommend taking lysine during an outbreak of canker sores to speed healing; the exact cause of these tiny but quite painful mouth ulcers is unclear, but most research indicates that a virus is responsible. However, there have been almost no clinical trials using lysine as a remedy for canker sores.
The most promising application of lysine is its use in managing and preventing painful and unsightly herpes sores caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). l-Lysine supplementation works by tilting the balance between lysine and arginine heavily in favour of lysine. This ameliorates herpes outbreaks because the herpes virus depends on the presence of arginine for its replication.
Lysine has also been shown to be useful in the prevention of atherosclerosis, a hardening of the walls of arteries caused by deposits of lipoproteins (fats). Lysine may be capable of loosening and preventing such deposits, therefore keeping artery walls flexible. Thus, there is less susceptibility for hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension is a major factor in heart attack and stroke.
Lysine supplementation increases the absorption of calcium and may reduce its excretion. As a result, some researchers believe that lysine may eventually be shown to have a role in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Lysine works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth, lean body mass, and the body’s store of nitrogen.

New Roots Plant DigestiveRegular price $16.99 Save $-16.99
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.

New Roots Grapefruit Seed Extract 90 VCapsRegular price $27.99 Save $-27.99
Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) contains mainly polyphenolic compounds, including quercetin, hesperidin, campherol glycoside, neohesperidin, naringin, apigenin, rutinoside, poncirin, etc. The polyphenols themselves are unstable, but are chemically converted into more stable substances that belong to a diverse class of products, called quaternary ammonium compounds. Some quaternary compounds—benzethonium chloride and benzalkonium chloride, for example—are used industrially as antimicrobials, but are toxic to animal life; hence, we don’t find them in detectable amounts in our GSE. The B vitamin choline is also a quaternary compound, but is nontoxic and even essential for maintaining healthy neurological function and fat metabolism.
GSE features the best of both worlds: the quaternary compounds derived from grapefruit exhibit broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, while evidencing none of the toxic side effects of chemically derived quaternaries. According to an independent laboratory testing “Acute Oral Toxicity,” it would take at least 4 000 times the normal dose of GSE to produce a 50% chance of poisoning (called LD50).
Grapefruit seed extract is being used successfully in humans and animals alike to eliminate many types of internal and external infections caused by many types of parasites (single- and multicelled), viruses, bacteria, and fungus. It naturally detoxifies, enhances, and supports the immune system. It has been proven highly effective in numerous applications.
Grapefruit seed extract contains high levels of vitamins C and E as well as bioflavonoids. The important substances have an antioxidant action and can neutralize free radicals that damage cells and cause numerous illnesses.

Ultra B Complex incorporates vitamin C and coenzyme (active form) B vitamins, functional flush-free niacin, and enhanced-absorption choline. Vitamin C and B vitamins support the body’s nervous system to deal more effectively with stress.
The B‑complex vitamins are named so because they are found together as a complex in food. They have complementary actions and work together in the body. B vitamins are responsible for a myriad of physiological functions which include the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins; the formation of red blood cells; and the maintenance of good health.
B‑complex deficiencies are widespread. One study at Tufts University suggests that over 39% of people had low values of vitamin B12. B vitamins are water-soluble, and any excess amount is immediately eliminated through urine. Since none is stored, it is important to have a consistent supply.

New Roots Borage OilRegular price $32.99 Save $-32.99
New Roots Herbal Borage Oil is certified organic and non‑GMO. From its bristly stems to its blue star-shaped flowers, virtually all parts of the borage plant (Borago officinalis) have been used over the centuries for their healing properties and as a flavouring for foods. As early as the 1600s, Europeans mixed borage leaves and flowers into a wine that was renowned for relieving boredom and dispelling melancholy.
Like evening primrose oil and black currant seed oil, borage oil owes its healing power to the presence of essential fatty acids, the most important of which is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega‑6 fatty acid. (While borage oil is often used interchangeably with evening primrose oil, borage oil boasts more than twice as much GLA.) Once processed by the body, GLA is converted into hormone-like substances that can either block inflammation or promote it; in borage oil, the GLA seems to calm inflammation overall, making it an attractive treatment option for arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Nature’s most potent concentration of GLA comes in the form of borage seed oil (24%). A great deal of scientific research has been conducted with supplements rich in GLA, resulting in significant interest regarding the aforementioned health ailments, as well as for those affected by premenstrual syndrome, benign breast disease, eczema, psoriasis, obesity, and vascular disorders.
The essential fatty acids combined here have proven to impart a regulatory function on the body’s fatty-acid metabolism. Fat metabolism is as important, if not more critical, than our body’s metabolism of proteins and carbohydrates, as evidenced by the drastic rise in fat-related degenerative diseases such as vascular disease and strokes. Dietary essential fatty acids common to borage seed oil are ultimately converted to hormone-like substances known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are important for the regulation of a host of bodily functions including inflammation; swelling; pain pressure in the eye, joints, or blood vessels; secretions from mucus membranes and their viscosity; smooth muscle and autonomic reflexes; gastrointestinal system; arteries; ears; heart; water retention; blood-clotting ability; allergic response; rheumatoid arthritis; nerve transmission; steroid production; and hormone synthesis.
Past and present scientific research supports the use of essential fatty acid nutrients in promoting optimal health. Borage seed oil is recognized as nature’s richest source of GLA. These natural plant substances used alone have created a great deal of interest in the treatment of numerous health problems. Evidence exists to suggest the combination of omega-3 fatty acids with GLA may further complement the therapeutic result of either fatty acid used singularly.
Borage oil relieves the discomforts of PMS, endometriosis, and fibrocystic breasts. By interfering with the production of inflammatory substances called prostaglandins, which are released during menstruation, the GLA in borage oil may help ease related cramping and pain. Borage oil may also reduce some of the breast tenderness that women feel before their periods, and calm endometriosis-associated inflammation. Many PMS sufferers are found to have unusually low levels of GLA in their systems, which is why supplements may help so much. In women with fibrocystic breasts, the oil’s essential fatty acids can minimize breast inflammation and promote the absorption of iodine, a mineral often found in abnormally low levels in those with this condition. While various studies suggest that GLA-dense oils can effectively treat PMS discomforts, more recent research has cast some doubt on these claims.
For the majority of ailments mentioned, take 1,000–1,300 mg of borage oil daily. While research studies tend to use relatively high dosages of borage oil, it’s important to stick to standard recommended dosages. As with all therapeutic products, we suggest that you consult the advice of a health-care practitioner.

New Roots Prostate PerformRegular price $46.99 Save $-46.99
New Roots Prostate Perform, The prostate; it’s a problem for the majority of men as they age. It can lead to unnecessary problems later in life including surgery. This small gland, located just below the bladder, impacts both your urinary and sexual functions. Every man has a very effective early warning system; problems during urination or ejaculation may indicate an enlarged prostate (benign prostate hyperplasia [BPH]).
Typically, problems with the prostate involve BPH. Men starting at age 40 produce and accumulate high levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the prostate. This accumulation of DHT may encourage the growth of cells. In time, this growth in the prostate gland can become problematic, by causing pressure against the urethra, resulting in many BPH symptoms.
DHT is both an inhibitory and activating hormone, like a switch. For example, it turns some hair follicles on, causing hair growth, like the hair on our faces, while it turns others off, like the hair on our scalps.

New Roots Purge Parasitis 90 VCapsRegular price $39.99 Save $-39.99
Parasites are organisms that produce toxic waste inside our body and compete against our own cells for resources and energy. Food and resources get consumed by parasites, making them stronger, rather than by our own cells, which become weaker.
Infections can occur while travelling to exotic lands or by eating undercooked meats or contaminated fruits and vegetables, all of which can be a source of parasites. Animals can also be a breeding ground for parasites. People with weakened immune systems or who are on immunesuppressive drugs are also at a higher risk of infection.
Some warning signs that you may be infected with parasites can include constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, skin problems, allergies, insomnia, sore joints and muscles, nervousness, granulomas, anemia, teeth grinding, chronic fatigue, and immune-system problems.
Synthetic drugs do exist to remove parasites; however, each drug kills only one or two types of parasites and has unwanted side effects. Eliminating multiple parasites would require multiple types of drugs, increasing the toll on the body, with all the side effects.
Our 12 powerful traditional antiparasitic herbs can rid up to 72 different parasites. These powerful antiparasitic herbs have no major side effects and don’t interact with drugs.
