Mastica Chios Gum

Mastic is the resinous material obtained from the Pistacia lentiscus tree which is grown on the island of Chios in Greece.

Traditionally used as a health food in Greece, a recent study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine supports mastic gum’s contribution to gastrointestinal health and particularly for unfriendly bacteria that reside in the stomach.*

The Possible Benefits of Mastica, a Dietary Supplement

  1. May support gastric mucosal cellular integrity*
  2. May contribute to gastrointestinal health, particularly for unfriendly bacteria that reside in the stomach *
Traditionally, mastic has been used for digestive tract health, to support gum and mouth health, and as a food preservative.* 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. Clinically, we have used this together with Bio HPF to aggressively support the body's battle against H. Pylori overgrowth.
