Mastic Gum is a natural antiseptic remedy that inhibits or eliminates H.Pyori, improving gastrointestinal problems. H.pylori infection is associated with gastritis, dyspepsia and peptic ulcers - in fact, it is now recognized as the cause of the latter.
Standard treatment to eliminate H.pylori involves long and extensive multi-therapy with antibiotics and other drugs. The side-effects of this treatment (nausea, diarrhoea and allergies) can be hard to tolerate. What's more, the bacteria mutate and become resistant to the antibiotics. However, there is a natural product which has been used for its benefits since ancient times as an antiseptic and remedy for a range of stomach ailments: mastic gum (pistacia lentiscus), now available to buy at Supersmart.
You might think that no organism living in the human stomach could withstand the combined, brutal chemical assault of hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes. Yet some exceptionally tough micro-organisms can survive and even multiply in such a hostile environment. Among the most prevalent is the bacteria Helicobacter pylori (h.pylori) which is believed to infect the stomachs of up to 40% of the world's population. As its name suggests, H.pylori is a helicoidal-type bacteria which burrows like a corkscrew in the epithelial cells close to the pylorus. It survives by secreting urease, an alkalinizing enzyme which neutralizes stomach acids.
Mastic gum is a safe, effective and natural nutritional supplement, free from side-effects and delivered in vegetarian capsules. Given how serious H.pylori infection is, mastic gum should be used as a first step, before any other therapy. Once H.pylori has been controlled or eliminated, gastrointestinal function will return to normal by itself and will restore stomach epithelium naturally.
Studies demonstrating the efficacy of mastic gum against H.pylori used doses from one to two grams a day. Even if H.pylori is not suspected, mastic gum can be used to:
