Pharmacological Action

The applicable part of the mastic is the resin from the mastic tree. Mastic tree contains the following resins including the triterpenes mastic acid, isomastic acid, oleanlic acid, and tirucallol. For the prevention of gastic acid and duodenal ulcers, some researchers think mastic gum might have antisecretory and possibly cytoprotective effects. There is evidence that mastic extract has antimicrobial and antifungal activity. There is also preliminary evidence that mastic gum might have hypotensive and antioxidant effects.
