Mastic gum is the gummy resin of the mastic tree – Pistacia lentiscus, a relative of the pistachio tree. The mastic tree is found almost exclusively on the Greek island of Chios, the birthplace of Hippocrates, the traditional father of medicine. Mastic gum has historically been used to support the gastric and intestinal inflammatory response.
In modern society, mastic gum has proven useful for supporting the inflammatory response within the esophagus and intestines.
