I ordered this product to effectively eradicate an H Pylori infection that I had been dealing with for over 2 years! I had been experiencing weight loss, fatigue, dark stools, malnourishment, indigestion, & adrenal fatigue. All indicators towards signs of low HCL due to H pylori. I used Mastic Gum for a period of 15 days so far and can feel the difference! I highly recommend 2 capsules in the morning 30 minutes before your first meal and 2 capsules right before bed. Please supplement with DGL and Slippery Elm to heal the gut during this process. Continue this regimen for a minimum of 30 days. Avoid red meat and large meals! Eat lots of alkaline fruits and vegetables! Cabbage is your best friend right now! I wish all of you the best of luck and remember that good health and proper understanding are life's blessings!
For the past three years i have had constant issues with my stomach such as gas, bloating all day, gaining weight, constipation, even though i look skinny. During these three years i went to see different doctors who kept telling me nothing was wrong with me and that I needed to change my diet (which I did) and do more exercise (which i did as well) but my stomach issues kept appearing. At the beginning of this year i decided to do a more thorough check up and ended up finding out I had H. Pylori which i was prescribed two antibiotics (amox and clarith) with another pill called "omeprazole" to take for two weeks twice a day. I only lasted three days because of serious side effects with these drugs so after doing a bit of research online I found out that there was a way to control and eradicate pylori with mastic gum and manuka honey as well as using probiotics. I purchases Nutricology`s mastic gum and finished the bottle (took for one month) and during the time i took mastic gum i decided to try out a gluten free diet and taking a teaspoon of manuka honey before bed. I took the mastic gum this way: one pill (1000mg) two hours before breakfast and one pill at night (one hour before manuka honey). The whole time i took mastic gum i did not have anymore issues with the symptoms i had described in the beginning of this review, i was amazed. My stomach began getting flat like it used to be (im 145lb and 5'8) and i did not have gas issues (passing gas a lot) anymore. When I finished the bottle of Nutricology i purchased a different brand called "Jarrow Formulas Mastic Gum 500" and took it for another month and i felt the same way as when i took Nutricologys brand so both brands worked for me. Flash forward to two months of mastic and manuka and I told my doctor that I was feeling fine and haven`t had issues with my stomach. I highly recommend Mastic Gum to everyone with same issue !
Really a good product 😀✌️️

Really works good fore my rumbling stomach. You need to take it a little time before you eat. You should really try it to see how it works 😊

Hard to tell if it works or not, but you should give it a try.
It's the real thing.

Before you try the (horrible) antibiotic treatment for H pylori, or if you have tried it before without success (and survived), please keep reading! I remember feeling hopeless thinking I would have to deal with this nasty thing forever. After dealing with H pylori for over 2 years, gastritis and a duodenum ulcer, I am now bacteria-free, as confirmed by a biopsy and urea breath test yesterday! I had been taking Mastic Gum (by NutriCology) for only 5 weeks until hearing the amazing news yesterday from my doctor. The following is a list of the other natural supplements I was taking to eradicate the bacteria and to help my stomach lining recover. 1. REFRIGERATED PROBIOTICS: Make sure you buy a refrigerated kind. I recommend choosing one that contains at least the strains of Bifidobacterium lactis and Lactobacillus acidophilus. I started taking one pill twice daily, one in the morning and one at night, with or without food. When my stomach feels ok I continue to take only one in the morning. 2. MASTIC GUM 2x DAILY: I only tried the brand NutriCology sold here, and was taking one pill about 30min before breakfast (sometimes 10min before when out of time) and another pill before bed. It's been only 5 weeks, and I just know it was indispensable in killing the H pylori! From now on I will take one pill whenever my stomach feels bad, and that will be a good prophylactic measure against a reinfection. Mastic Gum initially may upset your stomach, but stick through it and also take the other supplements I'm recommending. 3. ULCETROL 2X DAILY: I only tried the the brand Now sold here. I started taking this together with Mastic Gum, and believe this helped to calm and restore my stomach lining. I took the Mastic Gum pill and Ulcetrol pill together twice a day, no issues with combining them. Although I'm now H pylori-free, I will still take Ulcetrol until my gastritis subsides. 4. SLIPPERY ELM: This was recommended by my Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor. I would take it 5min before a meal that I knew my stomach would have problems with (definitely before a -seldom- alcoholic drink). You can take it before every single meal of the day when your stomach is particularly bad. Ulcetrol has a little bit of Slippery Elm in it, FYI. The one I got has 400mg, and I will still keep taking it before acidic meals or drinks as required. Please note that it is extremely important to make dietary changes, such as becoming a vegetarian while you treat yourself. Meat feeds the bacteria! As well as all types of sugar, not only refined sugar - that means that you should reduce the intake of even honey, if it's not a CERTIFIED high grade Manuka Honey (I trust the brand Comvita from New Zealand). When you're suffering with nausea, acid reflux and pain, it's a good idea to also reduce as much as possible: coffee, alcohol, gluten and soy. Good luck! It can be done! :)
Helps but doesn't keep gastritis entirely at bay

I used Jarrow's mastic gum and it really helped with a suspected stomach ulcer that had been burning for about a month. I wanted to continue with mastic gum for stomach health maintenance, especially coz I have irregular meal times. Jarrow's has been out of stock on iHerb for way too long, so I bought this more expensive one. Ingredients are the same and both are 1000mg mastic gum, but I feel less effect from this brand. My gastritis was well under control with Narrow's but I feel slight pain more often even though I take one pill twice a day on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning and before bed. But still less than before I started on mastic gum.
