How FLAIR® Strips Work
FLAIR® Strips are a drug-free horse health product. The self-adhesive strips enhance equine health by gently holding open your horse’s nasal passages during physical exercise. The Strips have a spring-like action that opens and supports nasal passages while the special adhesive, which is designed to resist sweat and dirt, hold the strip firmly and comfortably in place.
Why do FLAIR Strips work?
Unlike humans, horses only breathe through their noses. When horses begin to breathe hard during exercise, the soft tissues overlying the nasal passages are sucked in, reducing the airway diameter. This reduction in diameter causes greater resistance to airflow into the lungs.
Clinical studies have found that FLAIR Strips support nasal passages to reduce collapse. By reducing nasal passage collapse, your horse expends less energy to get the oxygen he needs.
FLAIR Strips support the soft tissues above the nostrils and in front of the nasal bone that collapse readily when you squeeze the area with your fingers.
