Reviews & Testimonials

It Works!

From Australia

Thank goodness for mastic gum. After a year of trouble with a stomach ulcer, after just 4 weeks on mastice what an improvement! I feel like I'm well on the way to being healed. Very little pain anymore. I take 4 tablets (2000 mg) on an empty stomach before bed.

No doubt

From California

There is no doubt that this stuff has helped my h.pylori symptoms. I have yet to have a test done to see if it is eradicated, but it's the first time in 5 years that I have been able to eat a normally.

Mastic Gum for Gerd - acid burned stomach -duodenal hernia

From Mississippi

I have been taking 2 caps on an empty stomach before breakfast for the past three days and already I feel better. My gastroenterologist prescribed Nexium, but I wanted to try this before taking a prescription medicine that might cause more unpleasant digestive side effects. For months I would wake up during the night with knawing, burning pains. After taking this for just three days I have been sleeping through the night.

Success with Mastic Gum

From North Dakota

Great product, started this about 6 weeks ago and have noticed alot of improvement in gastritis and GERD symptoms, am able to eat some meat once again after not being able to eat meat without pain. Getting better every day.

great mastic

From North Dakota

been taking this for awhile to fight h. pylori, seems like a good product. really effective when teamed up with other known h. pylori killers.

Good product to fight H Pylori

From Australia

We've been taking this product for 2 weeks now, after having peptic ulcers and a H pylori infection for the last few months. We now feel heaps better. Mastic gum combined with Good Certified Manuka Honey seems to be the way to go. I highly recommend this instead of antibiotics which risk making your infection even more resistant. Also having them 2pills 3 times a day half an hour before meals is more effective.

Wonderful!

From Washington

Great for repairing the stomach ulcers and other ailments affecting the stomach.

Quick Reference Guide

 

Mastic Gum What Is Mastic Gum?

 

The mastic tree ( Pistacia lentiscus ) is a small tree which thrives in the Mediterranean region.  It ranges from Portugal on the one end of the Mediterranean to Turkey on the other, as well as in parts of tropical Africa.  It was known and widely used by the ancient Greeks and Romans to treat a variety of gastrointestinal complaints.  As a matter of fact, ancient Greek physicians, such as Hippocrates, Dioscorides, Theophrastos, and Galenos, mentioned its properties and recommended its use.  The astringent and aromatic qualities of the bark of the tree have been used traditionally to cleanse the breath and to tighten the gums.

 

Mastic gum is a resinous compound found in the trunk portion of the tree. Resins, such as the triterpene mastic acid, make up 90 % of the gum.  Volatile oil is responsible for much of the aromatic quality of the gum and can constitute up to 3 % of the product.  Mastic gum is viewed as being extremely safe.  The resin is sometimes used in food and beverage production.  Furthermore, there are a number of trace elements found in mastic gum such as sodium, magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium and manganese.  Lastly, mastic has also been reported to possess strong antioxidant activity.

 

Gastrointestinal Health

 

Stress, alcohol, drugs, smoking and bad dietary habits can wreak havoc on the stomach.  On the other hand, good dietary habits can contribute to the health of the stomach.  For example, cabbage juice is famous for promoting gastrointestinal health.  Similarly, when people with stomach concerns were put on a long term (six months) high fiber diet, the rate of improvement in gastrointestinal health was fast and significant. However, not many people are willing to drink cabbage juice let alone follow a long-term protocol of a high  fiber diet. 

 

Mastic gum is a natural product that has been used for over 2500 years to promote the health of the intestines, stomach and liver. However, it was not until the mid 1980s that researchers confirmed mastics efficacy in protecting gastric and duodenal cells and tissues. One gram daily of mastic gum has been found to be safe and effective in restoring stomach health.  In addition to its antioxidant properties, scientists also believe mastic gum possesses cytoprotective and antisecretory properties.  These special qualities could explain mastic gums ability to provide significant protection to the stomach and duodenum.

 

Other Uses

 

Mastic gum has also been used for centuries to promote oral hygiene.  In fact, modern research has shown that mastic chewing gum may be an effective tool for promoting healthy teeth and gums. Moreover, a recent study published in the April 20, 2007 issue of the Journal of Ethnopharmacology indicates mastic gum could have heptaprotective and cardioprotective properties in humans. Previous animal studies had shown that mastic gum was successful in supporting liver health. Finally, preliminary but, promising scientific evidence suggests that mastic gum may also be a useful supplement for promoting prostate health
