Supports gastrointestinal health*
- Healthy esophagus inflammatory response
- Provides relief for digestive discomfort
- A health-promoting gum resin derived from the Pistacia lentiscus tree
Mastic gum is the gummy resin of the mastic tree – Pistacia lentiscus, a relative of the pistachio tree. The mastic tree is found almost exclusively on the Greek island of Chios, the birthplace of Hippocrates, the traditional father of medicine. Mastic gum has historically been used in medicine to fight gastric and intestinal inflammation.
In modern society, mastic gum has proven useful for supporting the inflammation response within the esophagus and intestines. Mastic gum is an excellent natural alternative for those who have experienced the negative long-term side effects of antacids, proton pump inhibitors, antibiotics and other medications that affect the digestive tract.
AOR’s Mastica Chios is derived exclusively from mastic gum from the pistachio trees found on the Greek island of Chios.
