Mastic Ox Bile Complex Description

Mastic is a tree. People use the sap (resin) from the trunk to make medicine.

Mastic is used for conditions such as stomach and intestinal ulcers, long-term swelling (inflammation) in the digestive tract (inflammatory bowel disease or IBD), infections, and wound healing, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

In manufacturing, mastic resin is used in the food and drink industries and in the production of chewing gum.

Natural Medicines rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate.

Possibly Effective

  • Indigestion (dyspepsia). Taking mastic gum by mouth for 3 weeks seems to improve symptoms of indigestion, including stomach pain, upper abdominal pain, and heartburn.
  • Stomach ulcers. Taking mastic powder by mouth for 2 weeks seems to reduce symptoms and improve healing in people with intestinal ulcers. Also, early research shows that taking mastic powder by mouth for 4 weeks improves these outcomes in people with stomach ulcers.

There is interest in using mastic for a number of other purposes, but there isn’t enough reliable information to say whether it might be helpful.

Action

Mastic might help reduce stomach acid and may protect the lining of the stomach and intestine. Mastic also contains a fragrant oil which could kill bacteria and freshen the breath. In a test tube, mastic seems to fight bacteria and fungi.

Safety

When taken by mouth: Mastic is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken appropriately for up to 3 months. It might cause nausea, diarrhea, or constipation in some people.

When given as a shot: A specific extract of mastic (RPh201) is POSSIBLY SAFE when given as a shot under the skin by a healthcare provider. It can cause pain and redness at the injection site.

When applied to the skin: There isn’t enough reliable information to know if mastic is safe or what the side effects might be. Cases of allergic contact dermatitis have been reported with mastic gum-containing products.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn’t enough reliable information to know if mastic is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Allergy to to other plants: People who are allergic to Schinus terebinthifolious and other Pistacia species might also be allergic to mastic tree.
