Breathe Right nasal strips gently open nasal passages so you can breathe through your nose and close your mouth, reducing snoring. Each drug – free, non – prescription nasal strip consists of flexible, “spring-like” bands. Placed correctly across the nose, the bands gently lift the sides of nose to provide: nasal congestion relief due to the common cold or allergies, snoring relief to sleep better, better breathing for people with a deviated septum. Athletes also use nasal strips to reduce the amount of energy needed to breathe during a workout. Breathe Right nasal strips are ideal for every kind of aerobic exercise.
