Q: Is Intake only for people who have issues with their nose?
A: No! Actually, only one person here at Intake (our CEO) has a history of sinus congestion that makes it hard for him to breathe through his nose, even at rest. In fact, the rest of us considered ourselves pretty good at breathing through our nose—until we tried Intake, and realized there was a whole world of air out there that we didn’t even know we were missing. But if you do have a history of allergies, sinus infections, a deviated septum, or anything that makes it difficult for you to breathe, Intake may help greatly.
Q: Which sports is Intake most suited for?
A: Intake is suitable for the vast majority of sports, activities, and training regimens. We designed Intake specifically with both athletes and the average gym-goer in mind, and we’ve found the system to hold up exceptionally well for everything from football to yoga to motocross. The only sports that might compromise Intake’s weartime are those with substantial facial contact, such as grappling or boxing, and water sports.
Q: Does this include triathlons?
A: Yes! We recommend removing the Band for the swim portion, but leaving the Tabs on throughout so you can easily apply the Band again for the following leg. If you don’t have a secure place to store the Band while swimming, you may leave it on, though prolonged submersion can sometimes affect weartime.
