WARREN, N.J., May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nyquist, a favorite heading into the Kentucky Derby®, utilizes equine nasal strips to help him breathe better during the "Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports™."
As a result, Breathe Right® brand has signed an official partnership with the Kentucky Derby® and Nyquist and will be onsite at the Kentucky Derby® Wednesday, May 4 through Saturday, May 7, to explain how the Breathe Right® nasal strips work with humans to help those who may suffer from nasal congestion breathe better, so they can sleep better. Those attending the race can pick up free nasal strips from the Breathe Right® brand booth at the event.
In fact, Nyquist's owner J. Paul Reddam wears Breathe Right® nasal strips and he says, "With my allergies and nasal congestion, Breathe Right® nasal strips really help me sleep better."
Breathe Right® nasal strips have unique engineering that make them an effective tool for managing nighttime nasal congestion and improving sleep. Breathe Right® nasal strips are made of flexible, spring-like bands that fit right above the flare of the nostrils. The underside is adhesive so that once positioned on the nose, they stay there. As the bands attempt to straighten back to their original shape, they lift the sides of the nose and open the nasal passages. This lifting action helps open nasal passages and makes it easier to breathe through your nose. Breathe Right® nasal strips provide relief for nasal congestion due to colds, allergies, or a deviated septum and reduce snoring caused by nighttime nasal congestion. Breathe Right® nasal strips, open your nose 38% more than allergy medicines alone.* In fact, 90 percent of snorers reported a better night's sleep with Breathe Right® nasal strips. † Breathe Right® nasal strips help people with nasal congestion breathe better so they can sleep better.
"Nyquist uses equine nasal strips to breathe better during the big race. Breathe Right® Nasal Strips relieve nasal congestion to help people breathe better to sleep better," said Christie Vergalito, Brand Manager, Breathe Right® nasal strips. "It was a natural partnership for us."
