Mastic gum is a natural resinous gum harvested from a type of pistachio tree, Pistacia lentiscus. It's usage dates all the way back to ancient Greece, where physicians such as Hippocrates used mastic gum to preserve food, freshen breath, cure gum disease and tonify the digestive tract.
Modern research shows us just how valuable Mastic gum is for healthy digestion. In clinical human research studies, mastic gum inhibited and reduced over-production of foreign organisms in the stomach and duodenum. When digestive flora is imbalanced, mastic gum appears to work on foreign organisms by disrupting their energy production and then rupturing their cells. Some researchers also believe that mastic gum works by stimulating increased production of the protective and soothing stomach lining.*
This Mastic Gum Extract is standardized to 35% masticonic acids, which are the active compounds that support the lining of the stomach and duodenum.
