Mastic Tears – Chios Mastic Chewing Gum
Mastic tears from Chios, Greece.
Mastic has been beloved since Greek antiquity.
Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, used mastic for the prevention of digestive problems, colds and as a breath freshener.
You can use Mastic gum to train your jaw to obtain the aesthetics of an ancient Greek hero. A well-developed jaw musculature is also good to increase the durability and shock-absorption of your face. Train your jaw and your neck and you will be harder to knock out!
Moreover, Mastic gum is shown to have a positive effect on the health of teeth (link to study).
Under the Byzantine Empire, the trade of mastic was made Emperor’s monopoly. In the Ottoman Empire, the Sultan gathered the finest mastic crop to send it to his harem.
- You can use the metal box to keep your mastic in (it is reusable) and the paper boxes can be ordered as refills.
