maltodextrin?
 November 29, 2007
"The reason some may find this product useless may be due to the fact that they use maltodextrin in the ingredients. Maltodextrin is bad for a stomach that is used to eating pure organic food and it's bad for others too. As far as I can tell, it is unnecessary in this product."

No effect

"I don't know if it's the extracting process or if it's a synthetic product or what, but I don't feel anything after taking this product. HOWEVER, I took in the past Mastic Gum from another manufacturer (Nutricology - Allergy Research) and it was good and effective!!"

Worked for me!

"This product seems to work just as well as "NutriCology Mastic Gum" and costs a little bit less. See my review under the NutriCology Mastic Gum product."

"I took this product as directed for four months but it did nothing for my stomach. Vitacost has excellent prices but this product didn't work as advertised so I don't think it was a good value."

Extreme Savings!
 April 30, 2007
"As many know, this product is great for digestive health and even as a supplement in cleansing. The value at Vitacost is excellent! This same supplement at my local Natural Food Grocer is 2-3 times the price! I have purchased from Vitacost several times and am always happy with the quality of product, speedy shipping, and have always had excellent customer service! Great product and great company!"
