Gum tragacanth has many uses including cloth finishing, calico printing, painting, and binding incense cones, sticks, and pellets. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years, dating back several centuries before the Christian era. In folk medicine it has been used for a laxative, persistent cough, diarrhea, and as an aphrodesiac. Modern pharmaceutical uses include an adhesive agent for pills and tablets, and for emulsifying oil droplets in lotions, creams and pastes. Its superior water absorbing qualities make it an excellent thickening agent. Gum tragacanth is used in many everyday commercial products, from cosmetics and toothpaste to jellies and salad dressings. Unfortunately, due to the troubled diplomatic relationship between the United States and Iran, other natural gums (such as guar gum and locust bean gum) have largely replaced the use of gum tragacanth in the United States.
