My endoscopy is scheduled for next Tuesday. I have been taking natural supplements (no antibiotics or PPI) to help with symptoms. Is it ok to take mastic gum, monolaurin, and oil of oregano, until Sunday?

I’m asking because I am wondering if taking supplements would affect test results. Of course I plan to fast and stop supplements prior to test but wanted to know if I should have stopped a week or two ago.

Most likely not. But perhaps you should stop mastic gum.
