Digestive Support from the Sap of a Tree

Mastic gum is a resinous extract from the Pistacia lentiscus tree, indigenous to the Mediterranean islands. The mastic tree thrives especially well in the southern part of the island of Chios, due to the mild climate and characteristics of the soil and is known for its lemony balsam-like smell.

Mastic gum is used in ointment, toothpaste, mouthwash, and as a component in dental fillings. Pharmaceutical companies use it in the production of pills and capsules, in self-absorbing surgical threads, and doctors use it for sticking a septic bandage on a surgical wound. This wide range of application points to mastic gum’s toxicological safety. Modern researchers have confirmed some of the traditional uses of mastic gum, including its roles in oral health and healthy digestive functioning.*

Researchers at the University of Nottingham used mastic gum in clinical trials to show mastic gum’s contribution to gastrointestinal health, and particularly for unfriendly bacteria that reside in the stomach.*These results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers at Aristotle University in Greece studied topical mastic gum and found potential benefit for the health of the mouth.* Other European researchers confirm that mastic gum may help support the strength of the gums and teeth.* Many studies confirm that mastic gum has a low toxicity potential. Mastic gum is well tolerated and has no serious side effects when consumed at the recommended dietary supplement dose of 1-2 grams per day.
