Mastic Gum Natural Mediterranean Tree Resin 60 caps by Jarrow Formulas
A study showed that the glaucoma patients were almost twice as likely to be infected with H. pylori as the controls.** Mastic contains an antibacterial agent that kills H. pylori, and it inhibits the growth of other disease-causing intestinal bacteria. It has been used for thousands of years throughout the Mediterranean region to soothe a distressed digestive tract. And now, thanks to modern research, we know that it may play an important role in eye health too.**
