Health Benefits of mastiha
Practitioners of alternative medicine have long touted mastic gum as a natural remedy for indigestion, acid reflux, peptic ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), respiratory problems, gum disease, and various bacterial or fungal infections. The aromatic oils in mastic gum—the flavor of which is best described as a mix between pine and eucalyptus—can also help fight bad breath.
Mastic gum contains a number of compounds thought to have medicinal effects, one of which is linalool, which alternative medicine practitioners say can treat stress, inflammation, muscle pain, and insomnia.
Mastic gum has anti-inflammatory properties that may make it useful in treating allergic asthma. This type of asthma often includes airway inflammation, eosinophilia, and airway hyperresponsiveness.
Mastic gum is generally well tolerated. In some cases, it may cause headache, upset stomach, and dizziness.
In order to minimize side effects, start with the lowest possible dose and gradually work your way up to the full dose.
Supplements like mastic gum aren’t regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. You should only purchase mastic gum from a manufacturer that you trust. Always follow the dosage instructions outlined on the label and talk to your doctor if you have any questions.
Allergic reactions are also possible, especially in people who have an allergy to the flowering plant Schinus terebinthifolius or other Pistacia species.
You shouldn’t take mastic gum if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
