Mastic Gum by Seeking Health provides a high-quality natural resin derived from evergreen trees native to Greece that is rich in terpenes, and has traditionally been used to support gastrointestinal health, digestive comfort, microbial balance and oral health.*
For centuries, mastic gum has been harvested from Pistacia lentiscus stems and branches and used in cooking, beverages, cosmetics including lip balms and toothpastes, and as a traditional tonic.
Though its exact mechanisms of action are still being researched, mastic gum is thought to help support the health and integrity of gastrointestinal and duodenal tissues and microbial balance in the GI tract. It may also help support oral health and normal bacterial concentrations in the mouth, suggesting that it may be of use in periodontal or dental applications.*
The primary constituents of mastic gum are terpenes such as pinenes, limonene, camphene and linalool – compounds that are widely present in plants and animals. These compounds are thought to help support cellular health, including certain regulatory and signaling processes, a healthy immune system, and cardiovascular health. Mastic gum may play a role in supporting healthy lipid metabolism and the circulatory system.*
