RESCUE, Mikra’s second product, engineered to rapidly detox your body by binding to toxins and chemicals in the stomach within 90 minutes of ingestion and gently remove them before absorption can occur, to go on sale at www.wearemikra.com in mid-December
Mikra’s third product, an athletic performance and recovery product developed in collaboration with baseball legend Jose Bautista, in final phase development
TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lifeist Wellness Inc. (“Lifeist” or the “Company”) (TSXV: LFST) (FRANKFURT: M5B) (OTCMKTS: NXTTF), a health-tech company that leverages advancements in science and technology to build breakthrough companies that transform human wellness, today announced that its wellness and nutraceutical subsidiary, Mikra, Cellular Sciences Inc. (“Mikra”), plans to launch its second consumer product RESCUE in mid-December at www.wearemikra.com.
“We’ve all been in a situation where we’ve ingested some suspect food, drinks or perhaps been in a heavily polluted environment,” commented Faraaz Jamal, CEO of Mikra and COO of Lifeist. “RESCUE is designed to rapidly detox you so that you don’t build up a store of undesirable toxins and chemicals in your body which can lead to acute gastric distress such as bloating and oxidative stress over time. RESCUE has been scientifically formulated and proven to provide rapid detoxification of foreign substances.”
RESCUE is a 100% naturally derived and rapid-acting digestive aid. Each high impact dose contains pure, fine-milled activated coconut charcoal powder made from super-heated coconut shells which acts to trap the body’s toxins and chemicals within its pores. The toxins and chemicals stick to the porous surface of the active detox element through absorption and are then eliminated safely and rapidly through the body’s natural digestive and metabolic processes.
Manufactured in the United States, RESCUE is 100% vegan and free from soy, gluten, GMOs, dairy, egg and animal products. There are no fillers, additives or alternate carbon sources. Furthermore, the packaging furthers Mikra’s sustainability goals. The glass jar and exterior box (for first month/one-time purchasers) are fully recyclable, and the low-waste biofilm refill pouch and label are compostable.
Added Jamal, “Mikra was launched with a mission to improve cellular health, and in the span of a year, we have developed a promising portfolio of products that we believe have significant growth potential. Our first product CELLF™, an antioxidant-rich supplement that combats oxidative stress, has enjoyed early commercial success, and Mikra’s third product in collaboration with Jose Bautista targeting athletic performance and recovery is in final phase development and manufacturing.”
