Sourced from the island of Chios, this evergreen shrub is harvested using know-how and techniques used since antiquity and enshrined by UNESCO on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
The first accounts of mastic gum, or mastica, as a stomach remedy appeared in the 5th century, B.C. It is also used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for gastrointestinal problems.
Clinical studies demonstrate the effectiveness of this natural resin, with eighty percent of patients receiving mastic gum reporting real improvement in their symptoms in just two weeks.
Due to its cost and difficulty to process, mastic gum is a challenge to use therapeutically, but AOR has been able to capture its healing essence through innovative processes and has successfully integrated it into our formulations.
