Mastic gum is an antibacterial and antiviral herb that contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It has been used to help support:
It's the Terpenes in Greek mastic gum responsible for the excellent results. Several species of plants have Terpenes, which gives them their scent and flavour. Terpenes are the major organic compounds within the mastic gum's resin. It helps to help eliminate bad bacteria. There are many scientific studies that results have shown the healing properties of mastic gum. Yet, the exact way that this herb works is still not fully understood.
Stomach acidity is needed to break down the food we eat and stimulate multiple digestive mechanisms. One of the digestive mechanisms is called the sphincter valve or (lower oesophageal sphincter [LES]). It connects the stomach to the oesophagus stopping stomach acid rising (reflux and heartburn). Your liver is responsible for making bile, and your gallbladder stores and releases the bile.
There is a valve called the ileocecal valve. It sits in-between your large and small intestines. When this is closed, it assists in preventing SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). The right level of stomach pH, released by the pancreas, helps to prevent the overgrowth of microorganisms and undigested food in the intestines. If all these are not working correctly, it can lead to an immune response, and symptoms develop such as food sensitivities, inflammation, and autoimmune diseases. We need acid in our stomach for digestion, but rebuilding the gastrointestinal tract's mucosal lining can be done between eating.
The burning feeling felt in the stomach during or after a meal occurs when the stomach's acidic environment comes into contact with damaged tissue, for example, parasites, worms, or bacteria infestation. If left untreated can develop into an ulcer. Often gastrointestinal symptoms are misdiagnosed and labelled IBS, or GERD, gallbladder or pancreas problems when quite often the underlying cause of gastro-issues is worms.
You can take between 1000 and 5000 mg of Mastic gum regularly and indefinitely. As well as killing off harmful bacteria, the theory is that Mastic gum also encourages brand new cell growth, which rebuilds the stomach lining. In one study*, it is recommended that Mastic gum is used for a long period to establish whether there is a reduction of the H. Pylori colonisation levels. H. Pylori is known to be resistant to antibiotics. Mastic gum is seriously believed to be a good choice of treatment and can be taken alongside antibiotics. But Mastic Gum alone may not clear H. Pylori bacteria alone. Ask your doctor to organise a breath test for you.
