Mastic gum, also known as mastic, is made from a resin derived from the sticky pistachio tree (Pistacia lentiscus). It has been used for centuries to relieve digestive problems and to treat oral cavity diseases. Scientists have isolated a lot of organic chemical compounds (including mastic acids) from the mastic that have a beneficial effect on the human body. They show strong bactericidal, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects. They also have extremely high antioxidant potential and promote the lowering of cholesterol.
Preparations in this category are particularly recommended for people who are struggling with problems in the digestive system. Mastic gum relieves digestive problems, supports the fight against Helicobacter pylori and may reduce the risk of peptic ulcer disease. In addition, supplements based on mastic work well as an element of oral disease prophylaxis – they are helpful in case of caries, stomatomycosis, recurrent gum diseases, erosions and a canker sore. They can also solve the problem of bad breath.
