• Strengthen Jaw

    Chewing mastic gum provides a workout for the jaw muscles due to its resilient and tough texture. The act of chewing mastic engages several key muscles in the jaw, including the masseter, temporalis, lateral, and medial pterygoid muscles. These muscles are responsible for the movement of the jaw during chewing and play a significant role in the strength and definition of the jawline. Recent research suggests that chewing mastic gum may also have a direct influence on the jaw bone itself. By training the masseter muscles, chewing stimulates the bones in the upper and lower jaw, potentially awakening dormant stem cells in the face.

Answers to your Questions

What exactly is Mastic Gum?

Mastic gum is a natural resin harvested from the trunk and branches of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus) which only grows in one island, Chios, Greece. When the bark of the tree is wounded, the resin oozes out and solidifies upon exposure to air.

Where is the gum sourced?

Our crystalized mastic sap is sourced from the exotic and plush island of Chios, situated on the coast of the Aegean Sea in the Mediterranean. The unique environmental conditions of Chios, including the soil composition and climate, contribute to the superior quality of mastic produced there.

Why is it so expensive?

Several factors contribute to the relatively high cost of mastic gum. Harvesting mastic gum is a meticulous process, highly labor-intensive, and requires skilled farmers that requires specialized knowledge. The specific geographic location makes mastic gum a limited and rare product, with demand typically exceeding supply. Finally, mastic gum is a treasure, it's not just a pack of gum, but a piece of Greece that has ancient historical uses and a myriad of health and aesthetic benefits.

How long does it last?

The gum itself, if stored properly, has the shelf life that exceeds multiple years. A pack of Zeno Gum will last over a month (depending on usage). However, one individual piece of mastic can be reused multiple times before being thrown away, without losing its resistance, flavor, or freshness. Simply place the piece you have been chewing on the roof of the can to be salvaged for your next craving.

What does it taste like?

When you first start chewing mastic gum, it tends to be firm and brittle. As you chew, it softens and releases its flavors. Many people find it initially a bit bitter or earthy, followed by a sweet undertone and a refreshing, slightly pine or cedar-like aroma. Some describe it as having herbal or floral notes. The taste of mastic gum is not overpowering but rather subtle and aromatic.

Is it natural?

Yes, mastic gum is a completely natural resin that goes straight from the mastic tree to our cans. As a natural product, mastic gum contains various compounds and has been used for centuries for culinary, medicinal, and other purposes. It's valued for its unique properties and has been a part of traditional medicine and cuisines in Mediterranean regions for a long time.
