What is Masticlife Mastic Gum?

Mastic gum is the resin of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus var. Chia), a low evergreen tree with thousands of years of cultivation and use. 

In addition to the actual benefits for which it is valued, mastic gum is also unique because it is harvested from a single location in the world - a relatively small area in the south of the island of Chios. The original Chios mastic gum is the main ingredient in Masticlife dietary supplements and other products we offer. The use of original raw materials and controlled production guarantee the effectiveness and quality of Masticlife. 

How to choose mastic and other tips

If you want to take the mastic, you have several options as to what form to choose.

How do I choose mastic gum?

When choosing mastic, it is important what effect you expect.

The tears of the mastic, its original form, are chewed. They have a specific woody-fruity taste and a pleasant smell. For many people, chewing mastic is a healthy habit. If you're new to mastic, find out how to get started.

Mastic capsules are modern dietary supplements that guarantee the effectiveness of mastic directly in the stomach. In addition to the pure powder formula, you can choose capsules enriched with other ingredients.

Mastic powder may be more comfortable to take, plus it also works in the oral cavity and esophagus.

In all cases, make sure of the originality of the raw material used.

How to take mastic and what to be aware of when using the mastic?

It is practically impossible to overdose on mastic, so if you like to chew it, you don't have to limit yourself in anything.

In the case of dietary supplements, however, it is usually pointless to exceed the recommended dosage and take more than 2 grams of pure mastic per day.

There are no risks to taking mastic, but definitely heed these warnings:

  1. Mastic may lower blood pressure. This cannot be cited as a beneficial effect of mastic, but we feel it is important to point it out. In practice, this only applies to people with very high blood pressure, but if you suffer from low blood pressure, check that the effect of the mastic does not lower your blood pressure further.
  2. Do not take the mastic at the same time as probiotics. This does not affect the effectiveness of the mastic, but on the contrary the mastic eliminates the probiotics so that their intake is practically useless. Always take probiotics, live cultures at least 3 hours after taking the mastic. Do not use products combining mastic and probiotics. Or just use Mastic Vital Double Action! Be careful not to confuse them with prebiotics, which on the contrary are ideal for combination with mastic.
  3. If you feel heaviness or pressure in the stomach area when taking the mastic, take the mastic at least 30 minutes before eating. The feeling of pressure may disappear. This is common in people who suffer from gastritis, reflux or helicobacter pylori infection.

What is the difference between Mastix, masticha, mastiha and mastic?

Don't be surprised if there's no big difference. It is always a transcription of the original Greek name μαστιχα. In Czech, you may also come across the term masticha and mastika. In German it is Mastix and in English mastic. In Turkish mastic gum is damla sakızı.
