Zestt Wellness Frequently Asked Questions
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:
- Anthocyanins – a boysenberry and blackcurrant extract, with immune boosting properties and lung health properties;
- 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.
