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.
Source Naturals MASTIC GUM is standardized to 35% masticonic acids, which are the active compounds that support the lining of the stomach and duodenum. Source Naturals is pleased to partner with your local health food store to bring you MASTIC GUM. Add this ancient Greek secret to your health plan for supporting balanced digestive health today. Suggestion:
1 to 2 capsules daily between meals Special Note:
Mastic gum is a natural resinous gum harvested from a type of pistachio tree, Pistacia lentiscus. There is a legend that when Christopher Columbus was raising funds for his voyage to America, he promised to deliver four precious commodities: gold, spice, cotton and mastic gum. Historically, mastic gum was a prized commodity for many reasons. It was used as a flavoring in foods and beverages such as Ouzo. It was also an ancient Greek remedy used by physicians such as Hippocrates to preserve food, freshen breath, cure gum disease and tonify the digestive tract. Precaution:
