Remember the terrifying childhood tale that if you swallow gum it sticks around for seven years in your stomach?

While it may not be 100 per cent true, ingesting a wad of chemicals and artificial sweeteners isn’t great for your body. Thankfully, all these years later, Mast Chew is offering a gentle alternative.

Mast Chew is a plant-based, sugar-free, antimicrobial chewing gum, that cleanses the mouth and soothes the stomach (yep, you can actually swallow it).

That’s because it’s made from Pistacia resin – a secretion extracted from the trunk of the Pistacia tree. It’s a substance that’s been used by ancient civilisations for thousands of years to treat abdominal-related illnesses.

Combined with Xylitol (a natural sugar substitute) and mint, you can swallow each piece knowing your stomach will remain unharmed in the process.

Mast Chew is available to purchase online here.
