If you share a bed with a snorer, you’re not the only one. According to the American Sleep Foundation, snoring affects around 90 million American adults — 37 million of them on a regular basis.
For many people, having a partner who snores is much more than a minor annoyance. While the snorer is often blissfully unaware of their nocturnal noises, it can seriously affect their partner’s sleep, leading to below-par functioning the following day.
The American Sleep Foundation recommends several lifestyle modifications to reduce snoring. These include losing weight, avoiding sleeping pills before bedtime, avoiding alcohol for at least four hours before going to bed, getting into a regular sleep routine and sleeping on your side instead of on your back.
But if these steps don’t work, there are various anti-snoring products on the market that might just be the ticket to a good night’s sleep.
One of the latest on the market is the Somnibel, a battery-powered buzzer that sticks to your forehead and vibrates to wake you up if you start snoring — and keeps on vibrating until you shift positions.
The Somnibel is not available to buy just yet but, according to the site of the European company behind the product, it will be “soon.”
In the meantime, there are other devices on the market already that are designed to stop your snoring. It may take some trial and error before you find the treatment that works for you. But anything is worth a try when you’re sleep-deprived, right?
For example, there are these Breathe Right lavender-scented nasal strips, which are intended to relieve the nasal congestion but are also marketed as a drug-free snoring aid:
Or you can try these nose vents. They allegedly help to open up your air passages so you can breathe normally at night:
This adjustable mouthguard can presumably help keep your jaw in place at night so that your airways don’t constrict:
And this anti-snore chin strap is supposed to cradle your jaw in the optimal position so as to reduce snoring:
Is snoring causing you or your partner to lose sleep? Would you try one of these devices?
