Mastic Gum Dietary Supplement, 60 capsules - Dosage, Reviews

Natural supplement derived from the mastic tree

Our nutritional supplement Mastic Gum has been developed to offer a natural aid to digestive health. It is formulated from an extract of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus L.) which grows in the dry, rocky, coastal regions of the Mediterranean. Valued for its many properties, each part of the tree has its own particular characteristics. The resin, for example, has been tapped for thousands of years for its health benefits. Obtained by making several incisions in the bark, the oleoresin then hardens into tear-shape drops, which are pale yellow in colour and have a pronounced resin smell. The benefits of this natural gum are now available in the form of dietary supplements, which are easy to take at any time of the day.

Much-prized in Eastern countries

The resin from Pistacia lentiscus, better-known as mastic or mastikha, is used in many countries. In the East, it is popular as a chewing gum to freshen the breath and protect the gums. It is also used to combat a number of digestive disorders; indeed, it can help treat problems such as colic and diarrhoea. Scientific studies suggest this natural gum may also protect the gastric mucosa and as such, mastic tree resin may play a contributory role in gastro-intestinal health. This protective effect is also why mastic gum is sometimes recommended for combatting gastric ulcers.

Mastic gum’s anti-microbial activity

As a result of its many traditional uses, mastic gum has been the subject of a number of scientific studies. While some of these suggest it has anti-inflammatory effects, it is primarily associated with anti-microbial properties. Indeed, several studies have confirmed its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial effects. It is thus often highlighted for its powerful effects against Helicobacter pylori. This helical-shaped bacteria burrows into epithelial cells close to the pylorus where the stomach connects with the duodenum. It survives in this environment by secreting urease, an alkalinising enzyme that neutralises stomach acids. In infecting the gastroduodenal system, Helicobacter pylori is involved in the development of several disorders including gastritis, dyspepsia and peptic ulcers. Some experts believe it is present in the stomachs of a large number of people, potentially infecting 40% of the global population. Fortunately, there are several ways to treat this bacterial infection. Mastic gum is often suggested as a natural anti-bacterial. Indeed, natural mastic gum has significant antibacterial potency against Helicobacter pylori: its use helps inhibit and eradicate this troublesome bacteria. It also helps combat numerous bacterial infections and restore the stomach epithelium.

Mastic Gum, a product with many applications

Alongside its efficacy against bacterial infections, mastic resin is now recommended for many other problems. For example, it is widely used to relieve stomach ache, help restore stomach and duodenal epithelium, protect the gastric mucosa, promote healthy digestion and freshen the breath. It also offers benefits in the treatment of gastroduodenal ulcers and dyspepsia. In other words, it benefits a whole host of digestive problems. Other studies are underway to evaluate the extent of its therapeutic potential which could prove to be wide-ranging. That is why this natural gum has been developed as a dietary supplement. Our product Mastic Gum has been formulated from a high quality natural extract, standardised to provide 35% masticonic acids, the main active principle in mastic resin. Each capsule contains 500mg of this extract, and with this formulation, the suggested dose is two to four capsules a day. This dose can be adapted to your needs and the advice of your therapist. Other natural formulations that help ensure or restore digestive health may also be of interest to you: an extract of liquorice root (DGL), a blond Psyllium supplement (Psyllium Seed Husk) and a digestive enzyme concentrate (Digestive Enzymes).
