Description

This naturally-derived formula helps support your immune system and ensures good lung health to help you through challenging times.  

Anthocyanins are bioactives that are antioxidants and may support lung health.  In our patent-pending EXhale formula, we combine anthocyanins with a plant-derived flavonoid - quercetin as well as chelated zinc to support your immune system response. 

Also includes high-quality New Zealand Manuka Honey.  

Each dose in this 10 dose bottle contains the following bioactives:

  • Anthocyanins 7,500mg
  • Quercetin 500mg
  • Chelated zinc 15mg
  • UMF 20+ Manuka honey 500mg

    Your Health Journey Starts With Good Lung Health

    Good lung health allows us to breathe freely, perform optimally and recover quickly should we become ill.

    The most important function of our lungs is to take oxygen from the environment and transfer it to the blood stream – we do this by taking 6 million breaths per year!

    Child Breathing Fresh Air - Breathe Easy

    We have two lungs, the left is slightly smaller than the right.  When we breathe, our diaphragm, which sits beneath the lungs, does the muscular work.  As the diaphragm contracts, it moves down, leaving space for the lungs to expand.

    When we breathe, air goes from our nose and mouth, down the trachea (windpipe) where it splits into two branches, (mainstem bronchi), one of which leads to the left lung, one to the right.

    Those two bronchi then split further, into multiple smaller and smaller bronchi, like branches on a tree.  This ever-decreasing pipework ends with the alveoli which is where the important gas exchange occurs – oxygen goes into the bloodstream and carbon dioxide comes out of the blood and is exhaled.

    What Happens If Our Lungs Are Damaged?

    If our lungs are suffering from damage, inflammation or infection, our lung tissue may be stiff and scarred, and airways filled with mucus. This makes it difficult for the lungs to expand and contract, meaning breathing is harder and the oxygen we take in can be less.

    Fortunately, our lungs are the first out of any of our body’s organs to receive the benefits of consumed and absorbed bioactives (after our liver). This means that consumption of powerful bioactives will result in benefits to the lungs early.

    EXhale® formulation

    In EXhale®, we have formulated a combination of BerriQi®, quercetin, zinc and Mānuka honey to enhance boost immunity and improve lung health. 

    BerriQi®

    BerriQi® is an immune-enhancing liquid supplement derived from boysenberry and apple concentrates and rich in anthocyanins, which are plant compounds commonly produced in purple fruits.

    The anthocyanins in our formula are extracted in such a way as to maximise their bioactivity and bioavailability which are often lost in dried anthocyanin formulations (pills/capsules).

    Zestt Wellness' strategic partner, Anagenix worked with New Zealand Government Research organisation, Plant & Food Research, to develop BerriQi, the results of which are published in an internationally, science reviewed papers eg Boysenberries and exhale.

    Quercetin

    Quercetin is a plant polyphenol with renowned immune-boosting properties.  Quercetin also acts as a zinc ionophore, transporting zinc in and out of cells. 

    The quercetin we use in our EXhale® formula is extracted from Sophora Japonica.

    Zinc

    Zinc deficiency is common in many people.  Zinc supplementation is complementary to quercetin bioavailability, because zinc helps quercetin to cross cell membranes, and supports immune function.

    We use chelated zinc in EXhale®, this means the zinc is attached to a compound which is water soluble which helps absorption in the body.

    Mānuka honey

    We use the finest New Zealand Pouatu Mānuka UMF 20+ honey in our EXhale® formulation, which acts as a carrier for our bioactives.

    Our patent-pending EXhale® formulation featuring BerriQi®, quercetin, zinc and honey improves natural immunity and lung health.

    Zestt Wellness Frequently Asked Questions

    EXhale®


    How often should I take EXhale®?

    For those with unhealthy lungs, we recommend taking EXhale® on a daily basis (10mL per day).  Note that in times of stress, two 10mL doses per day can be taken, provided that people don’t exceed the following:

    • The daily recommended maximum dose of quercetin, which is 1,200mg (note there is 500mg of quercetin in one dose of EXhale®, but there are other supplements and medicines which may contain quercetin);
    • The daily recommended maximum dose of zinc, which is 50mg (note there is 15mg of zinc in one dose of EXhale®, but there are other supplements and medicines which may contain zinc).

    For those with healthy lungs, we recommended taking EXhale® as needed – in times of environmental stress or illness (10-20mL per day).

     

    What ingredients are in EXhale® and are they natural?

    The bioactive ingredients in EXhale® are natural and are sourced from New Zealand and imported (where not grown in New Zealand).  The bioactive ingredients are:

    • BerriQi® – a boysenberry and apple extract, with immune boosting properties and lung health properties, rich in anthocyanins;
    • Quercetin – a plant flavonol, with immunity properties, extracted from buds of the Japonica saphora tree, acts as a zinc ionophore which means it helps zinc cross cell membranes;
    • Chelated zinc – a form of zinc in its most bioavailable form;
    • Mānuka honey (UMF 20+) – oral immunity properties and acts as a carrier for quercetin to support absorption.

     

    Where is EXhale® produced?

    EXhale® is produced in Dunedin, New Zealand by Zestt Wellness.  We are a New Zealand Government accredited manufacturing centre (certification can be provided on request).

    Our staff are trained in food hygiene safety standards.  One of our co-founders is immuno-compromised – we truly understand the importance of food and nutraceutical manufacturing hygiene for such groups of people.

     

    What is the science behind EXhale®?

     Their co-founders are both scientifically trained and have extensively used peer-reviewed scientific literature to formulate EXhale®.  We have analysed EXhale® for its immunity properties in an accredited University laboratory.  We have had the science behind the EXhale® formula independently scientifically reviewed by scientists and medical practitioners internationally.

     

    Have clinical trials been done on EXhale®?

    Clinical and pre-clinical trials have been done by scientists on ingredients within EXhale®. We are currently seeking funding to support clinical trials of EXhale® in immune-compromised groups with chronic lung disease.  Ultimately, we are aiming for EXhale® to be available as a prescribed medicine as well as a nutraceutical.

     

    Should I take EXhale® everyday?

    For people with chronic lung issues, we recommend taking EXhale® every day, for others, we recommend taking EXhale® everyday or when you feel like your immune system needs a boost.  Please note that EXhale is a fortified food product.

     

    I have been told that my lung disease is incurable, how will EXhale® help?

    EXhale® won’t cure diseases, but it can help reduce inflammation and phlegm and support your immune system.  Please note that EXhale is a fortified food product.
