There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I take the capsules every night and they work great. I'd sing their praises but this review is for the tablets. Tablets do not work for me. That's true for multiple supplements I take. I was out of the capsules so I ordered them here. They hadn't arrived yet so I went out last night and bought them at the Vitamin Shop. When I opened the bottle, to my surprise, it was tablets. I was upset but I decided to try them anway. They are nowhere near the same. These suck. I woke up with all the problems I have when I don't take the mastic gum capsules (that's why I take them every night).
I've been buying the capsules for close to 8 years now. Now that they've switched to tablets they lost me as a customer.
Let me explain further. One evening after work I came home and took a nap, after I awoke from my nap I noticed I felt rather burpy and bloated. I belched and tasted the Chinese food from about 8 hours prior to the nap. This is really rare for me but I didn't think much of it. Less than an hour later I had a pretty awful bout of diarrhea. Thought to myself "welp, I'll stay away from Chinese food for awhile..." Well the diarrhea lasted for 2 weeks and I finally decided to go to the doctor. We all know how that goes...He gave some nausea medicine and sent me on my way.
Week 3: Still have diarrhea, at this point it was just water. Quite frankly, it felt if I were urinating out of my rear-end. By now im suffering from major fatigue, bloat, gas, squirts and on and off fever with chills. So I said the hell with it..I'm going to the Emergency room. There I was put on an IV, they took blood and I also gave a stool sample. They tested my stool for blood, that came back negative. Blood results came back good and my stool sample didn't show signs of any of the major bacteria, infections (c.diff, etc). I was prescribed some imodium chewables (which I didn't take). I took it upon myself to order a blood test for H.pylori antigens. Normal results for IgM pylori antigens is between 0.0-8.0 and mine came back at >35.0. Given that I had never had these types of symptoms before I made a self assessment and decided that it was fair to say that I had made the "infection connection". Thus begun my journey to rid myself of h.pylori with natural remedies instead of the normal tipple therapy that a doctor would have prescribed. For 1 week I took grape seed extract, turmeric, garlic oil, cranberry extract and 2 psyllium husks everyday. I also drank 250ml of cranberry cocktail everyday.
Week 4: A lot of my symptoms had started to wane, but I was still experiencing occasional diarrhea. I logged onto amazon and placed an order for Jarrow Formulas Mastic Gum and Align: Probiotic supplement. I stopped taking everything except those two products. Within a few days I noticed a great improvement. I started with 1 mastic on an empty stomach in the morning, probiotic at lunch and 1 mastic before I went to bed.
Week 5: By this time now I'm defecating 1-2 times a day (solid) and I have little to no fatigue. 1 mastic in the morning 30 minutes before eating, probiotic after lunch, 2 more mastic gum at night (500mg each)
Week 6: I feel pretty much back to normal, I'm going to finish the entire bottle of mastic gum. 1-2 mastic in morning, probiotic after lunch, 1-2 mastic before bed.
I have yet to go to the doctor again and share with them my pylori antigen results. I would have to give another stool sample in order to determine if the pylori is out of my symptom since blood test cant really distinguish between past or present anti bodies.
Simply put, this product, in conjunction with the other treatments seems to have worked or is working well enough that I'm not experiencing any of the prior symptoms. Until then I will stand by my 5/5 rating. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me here.
