Nutricology Mastic Gum is a preparation based on resin obtained from Lentisk (Pistacia lentiscus) growing on Chios island in Greece. This resin is a natural specific for the ailments of the digestive system, known and used already in ancient times.

Pistacia lentiscus, also known as the mastic tree, is a small tree that occurs naturally in the countries of North Africa, Southern Europe, and West Asia, although it is now also grown in many other countries around the world. The resin used for the production of the product, also called the mastic (hence the name: mastic tree), was isolated from a plant growing on the island of Chios in Greece.

Pistacia lentiscus is the source of many raw materials, including edible fruit, leaves, and wood used in industry, and resin, which due to its health-promoting effect on the digestive system, has a wide range of medical applications and was also used in the production of this product.

Comprehensive gastrointestinal support
Mastic is a resin that contains many organic compounds, out of which about 42% are mastic acids. They are credited with alleviating properties of many gastrointestinal complaints.

One of such conditions is stomach ulcers caused by the relatively common Helicobacter pylori bacterium. Mastic inhibits the action of an enzyme that activates the cells, which in response to the infection produce substances that damage the mucosa, causing stomach ulcers. In addition, it also reduces the production of proinflammatory cytokines, preventing the development of an inflammatory reaction.

In addition, mastic resin has a strong antifungal and antibacterial activity. For this reason, it was formerly used in the treatment of fungal infections and wound disinfection. Therefore, oral administration of the product, in the form of capsules, may prevent and support the treatment of oral ailments, e.g. gum disease, caries or fungal infections. Mastic may be also used to whiten teeth and relieve the symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux.

Interestingly, in the times of Hippocrates and Galen, it was known that the resin from the tree displayed preventive action on the gastrointestinal tract diseases or had pro-health effect on the blood. This is also reflected in modern studies, which state that mastic consumption reduces the level of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, as well as liver transaminases (AST, ALT).

Other applications of mastic
Mastic resin from the Greek island of Chios is a well-known spice in the countries of the Mediterranean Sea. It is characterized by a yellow color, interesting taste, and an intense aroma. For this reason, it is widely used for baking and cooking, as well as it is added to ice creams or desserts. One of the first products made of this resin was a chewing gum.

Practically in every country where pistachia lentiscus occurs naturally, the resin obtained is used to prepare traditional dishes or drinks. In Greece, it is used to the locally-produced liqueur named Mastiha, in Egypt for the production of jams (due to gelling properties) and as an addition to meat, while in Morocco for curing.
Mastic is also used for the production of cosmetics such as toothpaste, hair and skin conditioners or perfumes.

In conclusion, Nutricology Mastic Gum is a unique preparation containing resin from pistachia lentiscus in the form of capsules. This resin, called mastic, has a multidirectional, health-promoting effect on the digestive system. Thanks to its properties, it is well suited to alleviate the symptoms associated with gastrointestinal infections or oral diseases.

Pistacia lentiscus

Information

Pistacia lentiscus (mastic tree) is a tree belonging to the cashew family, naturally growing in the Mediterranean Basin, cultivated practically all over the world. After the incision of the bark, it secretes the so-called mastic – an aromatic resin, widely used for healing purposes. Mastic is extracted in a tedious and arduous process using only human hands, without the use of modern technologies, only at certain times of the year (from June to August). One mastic tree provides as little as about 200 g of mastic.

The resin from Pistacia lentiscus is a valued, tasty and aromatic culinary ingredient. It is added to desserts, ice cream, drinks, jams, chewing gums. In Greece, it is the basic ingredient of the popular liqueur. In supplementation, it usually occurs in the form of capsules and is an element of general health prophylaxis.

The mastic obtained from Pistacia lentiscus has strong bactericidal, fungicidal, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is widely used in the therapy of stomach diseases (especially those induced by Helicobacter pylori infection) and intestinal diseases. It is also recommended for people with recurrent ailments in the oral cavity. In addition, it positively affects lipid metabolism, helps to lower too high blood pressure, and stabilizes blood sugar levels.
