Mastic gum is a resinous product which is obtained from the stem and leaves of the mastic tree. The mastic tree is an evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean Basin and has historically been used in the Mediterranean to support the health of the stomach. Mastic gum has also been shown to promote bacterial balance in the stomach.
Bismuth is a naturally occurring mineral, frequently used to soothe the gastric and mucosal linings. Bismuth also promotes microbial balance in the stomach. Bismuth offers a key advantage when compared to other bacterial-balancing therapies. While it is very common for bacteria to develop a resistance to various bacterial-balancing agents, it is unlikely they will develop resistance to bismuth.
Zinc carnosine has been approved in Japan since 1994 for its use in stomach health. Zinc is a mineral with potent antioxidant, inflammation balancing, gastro-protective qualities. The health-promoting effects of zinc are enhanced significantly when combined with the essential nutrient, carnosine. Japanese scientists have led the way in developing this zinc carnosine compound, which combines zinc and carnosine linked by a chemical bond. Research has demonstrated that zinc carnosine stabilizes the mucosal lining of the stomach and small intestines.
Berberine sulfate is a botanical extract found in the roots and barks of various plants including Oregon grape root (Berberis aquifolium), barberry (Berberis vulgaris) and goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis). Berberine sulfate has a long history of use in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Berberine sulfate has been shown to provide a multitude of health-promoting properties, which include: supporting immune response by increasing blood flow to the spleen and activating immune compounds such as macrophages; promoting microbial balance by inhibiting the adherence of microorganisms to mucosal and epithelial surfaces; and supporting inflammatory balance in the body via inhibition of arachidonic acid release from cell membrane phospholipids, and inhibition of thromboxane A2 from platelets.
