Mastic gum is a unique resin which comes from a tree common to Mediterranean climates. (Pistacia lentiscus) The resin has a long history of use to support digestive health and recent studies have found it to be effective in supporting oral and liver health as well. The exact active ingredients responsible for these effects remain unknown as mastic gum contains numerous beneficial compounds and are especially rich in antioxidants.
While it is named “Mastic Gum”, this supplement is often used in powders, tinctures, and capsules in addition to being chewed as gum and many of the studies conducted were done on the encapsulated powder form. Mastic gum is occasionally applied topically to promote skin health as well.
As a dietary supplement we recommend taking two capsules per day, with or without food, for a total daily dosage of 1000 mg. While higher doses can be taken safely side effects are more likely when exceeding 2000 mg per day, so we recommend reducing your dosage if you experience any adverse side effects.
Mastic gum is well tolerated and side effects are rare at normal dosages however headaches, upset stomach, and dizziness have sometimes been reported. These side effects are much more likely at high dosages.
