Heal and Protect your GI Tract from Ulcers
A healthful gum resin derived from the Mastica Chios tree
Helps heal and soothe peptic and gastric ulcers
Kills Helicobacter pylori
AOR's Mastica Chios is derived exclusively from mastic gum from Greek pistachio trees
Mastica Chios is mastic gum, the resinous extract of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus) grown on the Greek island of Chios. Research shows that it helps alleviate stomach pain and heartburn associated with functional dyspepsia and is traditionally used in Ayurveda for Adhmana (excessive gas formation in the stomach and intestines).
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 fighting gastritis and infections as a result of H. pylori as well as gastric and intestinal inflammation. Studies have found that supplementing with mastic gum not only relieves symptoms of heartburn but can actually help heal the stomach, possibly by killing the H. pyloribacteria. Mastica Chios may benefit those suffering with heartburn, especially if these symptoms are due to an H. pylori infection. 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 treat the symptoms of heartburn but not the cause.
