I am definitely going to look into those, and probably buy some from you.

Why are root tabs better for crypts and swords specifically?

I'll pick some of those up if I decide to go for swords or crypts.

But, just curious....What happens to them if they don't get root tabs?

In my tanks, they often melt when they don't get root tabs. Sometimes they don't recover. It's made all the difference since I started using them. They're also growing faster for me than they have before.

I gotta make sure I use those then!

Are there any certain brands you recommend?

The only brand I have used is Seachem, so keep that in mind, but yes I'd recommend them.
