Mastic gum is a natural product. It is a chewing gum that has been used for centuries. Mastic gum is made from the resin of the mastic tree which grows on the Greek island of Chios and is available in powder form or as a hard paste.
The Benefits Of Chewing Mastic Gum
There are many benefits to chewing mastic gum:
It cleans your teeth and gums by killing bacteria and removing plaque. This can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. It does this by reducing bacteria levels in your mouth, which helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease. This means that mastic gum has many of the same benefits as other natural remedies like coconut oil or raw honey. The only difference is that mastic gum doesn't require you to eat it; instead, you can simply chew the resin directly after brushing your teeth at night before bedtime.
Mastic gum can help relieve problems with digestion such as constipation, diarrhea and stomach pain because it stimulates gastric juices in the stomach which helps food pass through your digestive system more easily.
Mastic gum can also help reduce bad breath by killing bacteria in your mouth which causes odor-causing halitosis (bad breath).
Mastic Gum and Heart Health
The antioxidants found in mastic gum may help your heart stay healthy by helping to lower cholesterol levels and preventing plaque buildup in your arteries. Mastic gum is also known to reduce inflammation in the body, which can help lower blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart attack and stroke.
