Beyond heartburn—all that mastic gum can do for you


Here’s an eye-opening statistic for you today:  Seven out of 10 Americans take at least one prescription medication every day. 

So in other words, it’s the norm to be medicated, and you’re a weirdo if you’re not.

And while that may be cause for celebration at Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, Merck and Johnson & Johnson, for the average person just trying to get relief from a health issue, it’s anything but celebratory.

Because while drugs may provide relief from symptoms, or in other cases, keep your “number” in the right spot on the “chart”—as in blood pressure, cholesterol or A1C—the fact remains that your results come with a dear price.

Every single drug in existence “works” by altering, suppressing or otherwise thwarting one or more of your body’s natural functions or structures. 

And if you think that you won’t have to eventually pay the piper for your “results,” then there’s a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.

Paying the piper in this case means suffering side effects!

Now, the sneaky thing about side effects is that they don’t always pop up right away—sometimes it can take months or even years.  And by that time, you likely won’t make the connection between the two, and will probably be given more drugs to address the side effects.

Stop the madness—trust the farmer instead of the pharmacy

The good news here is that people are getting fed up with pharma’s empty promises and their methods of creating customers for life, and are instead looking for safer, natural answers.

In other words, trusting the farmer instead of the pharmacy!

Unlike drugs, nutrients and phytochemicals work with your body to support its proper functioning, restore homeostasis and naturally counteract harmful substances.

There are many shining stars in the world of nutrients and phytochemicals, but one that’s increasingly standing out is: Mastic gum!

The mastic gum (found in our Gastro BeCalm Blend) has been shown to kill H. pylori bacteria (the bacteria that causes most ulcers), but that’s just the beginning!

  • It also is an impressive anti-inflammatory which may help ease inflammation during flare-ups of intestinal disorders such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease.
  • It’s a potent antioxidant that can help fight disease-causing free radicals.
  • And it’s a very effective antibacterial, helping to fight various harmful pathogens in the gut.

I experienced its antibacterial effectiveness first hand!  I caught a stomach bug back in the summer of 2020 (which I believe was food poisoning from a restaurant) and it knocked me for a loop!  I had the worst stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea that I could remember.

I took some Gastro BeCalm hoping to get relief from my stomach pain, and even I was surprised at how quickly it turned things around for me!  I was better within a day.

A long history

The effectiveness of mastic gum is impressive, but it shouldn’t be that surprising, because it’s been around for more than 2,500 years!

The famous Greek physician and Father of Modern Medicine—Hippocrates—used mastic gum regularly to treat gastrointestinal disorders in his patients.

It has also been used topically for lesions and inflammation of the skin, and people have also chewed it as a gum for dental health.

Try it now!

If you have regular heartburn or even occasional indigestion, why not give Gastro BeCalm Blend a try?  Its blend of mastic gum, licorice, ginger and marshmallow is ready to help bring you relief--FAST!

Let Nature heal you in a way that no drug can.  Safely, effectively and naturally.

And at $7 off per bottle, it’s the perfect time to put it to work for you!

To your health,
