loop guard and root guard

Hi all

I have a bit of confusion where I should enable these 2 features, some sites saying different things,

I have 2 distribution switches and then access switches dual connected to each, should I enable root guard on all edge ports and not the uplink ports or, and only enable loopguard on the uplink ports to the distribution layer?

please explain your reasoning why, this will help me

many thanks

Carl
