Correct dosage of mastic gum

To get the right effect from mastic, the correct daily dosage and duration of use is crucial. The pure substance is contained in mastic supplements in varying proportions. When taking mastic, always consider the proportion of the mastic itself without additives. When comparing the prices of mastic dietary supplements, place equal value on the pure substance content. Pay attention to how much mastic you buy in the pack and not to the price of the pack, and how much a gram of mastic costs after deducting the ingredients. After all, you are mainly buying the effect of mastic and not the other ingredients.

Rules for the use of mastic

If you want to get the right mastic effect, just follow a few simple rules:

  1. Only use original mastic gum from a certified source. Using non-original Chios mastic has no practical effect. If you are not sure about the originality of the mastic, familiarise yourself with the rules for recognising original mastic.
  2. Follow the daily dose of pure mastic and use it long enough!
  3. Subtract all additives from the supplement you are taking and determine the required dose according to the content of pure mastic, without taking into account the weight of the ingredients.
  4. Remember that you are taking mastic supplements because of the effectiveness of mastic and that "enhancing" the effect of other substances is rather counterproductive because it reduces the mastic content.
  5. You have also chosen mastic because it is a pure natural substance without further technological processing. So make sure that the other ingredients of the dietary supplement you are taking are of natural plant origin.
  6. You can also choose a combination if you like to swallow a powder with inulin added in the morning and a capsule in the evening. The total content of pure mastic is important.
