For Stomach Discomfort. Mastic gum a natural resin from the Pistacia lentiscus tree of Greece has been used traditionally by Mediterranean cultures to support gastrointestinal health. Source Naturals MASTIC GUM EXTRACT is standardized to 35% masticonic acids which are the active compounds shown to support the lining of the stomach and the duodenum and the body’s own response to imbalances.
"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."
"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!!"
"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!"
