TORONTO, Dec. 15, 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”), has launched its second consumer product, RESCUE, at

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. The toxins and chemicals “stick” to the porous surface of the active detox element through adsorption and are then eliminated safely and rapidly through the body’s natural digestive and metabolic processes.

Mikra’s RESCUE sold in several different form-factors

“RESCUE is an exciting addition to Mikra’s product line, taking advantage of our increased visibility in the wellness market and the production and distribution capabilities we have built over the past year,” commented Faraaz Jamal, CEO of Mikra and COO of Lifeist. “We look forward to further expanding Mikra’s offering in 2023 through additional innovation and new categories, as we execute on our strategy in this large and growing market.”

“Mikra’s plan of action is to support the body’s most essential biological systems, and RESCUE is a key part of this initiative,” added Jamal. “Evidence shows that gut health impacts the immune system, and this has come into focus over the past three years. An unhealthy gut can lead to chronic inflammatory issues, which impacts your cellular health and overall well-being. Additionally, the digestive health market exceeded $44 billion globally in 2022 according to Grandview Research, representing a significant market opportunity for Mikra and RESCUE.”
