What do people experience when nasal breathing with the OptiO2+?
First - lots of drool. This is completely normal and will reduce as you get accustomed to the mouthpiece.
Our athletes most commonly mention that they find it easier to breathe through their nose for longer periods of time but also they comment on how much more stamina they have while using it. Others mention not feeling as fatigued, maintaining higher performance for longer periods during HIIT, and recovering faster after their workouts.
One of the more surprising benefits reported by BMX users is that they no longer experience arm pump.
Many users, especially those that use in yoga, mention a better ability to relax.
I snore a lot. Can I use it while I sleep?
While this is not its main use, many users report using it for this purpose...or buying their spouse one for this reason. (Don't worry, we won't tell).
Can it be used for contact sports or protection?
No. It should not be used during any contact sport or for protection of any kind. However, you can use it to train for those sports when protection is not a concern.
What material is it made from?
BPA, phthalate and latex-free
When should I not use it?
When nasal passages are compromised or your healthcare provider advises otherwise. We always recommend speaking with your healthcare provider before starting use.
You should always inspect your mouthpiece for any sign of compromise prior to use. Compromise typically results from excessive use over time - for the ultra aggressive biters. If this occurs, discontinue use immediately.
