I began to buy this product (pine nut oil with resin) for myself and for my mother. I have gastritis, my mother has pancreatitis. This oil is a natural oil with pine resin. I took one tablespoon of the oil a day, did not drink any water in spite of its specific taste. It’s true that afterward there is a bit of an aftertaste, but it is pleasant and has a pine flavor. And yes, I noticed that, after taking the oil for three weeks, I was no longer bothered by heartburn and stomach pains. This course of treatment was sufficient to give me a year without gastritis. I did not follow any specific therapeutic diets. My mother also began to complain less about her pancreas. In general and on the whole, the oil proved to be very beneficial.
