Snoring is quite often depicted comically, but the reality can be very different. Regular snoring can result in poor sleep, not only for the snorer, but for whoever they share their bed with. In some extreme cases, it can even result in poor sleep for the people next door. Snoring is actually caused when the muscles in the roof of your mouth (the soft palate) relax.
Combine that with the relaxation of your tongue and throat and you'll be on your way towards snoring. Although the relaxation of your tongue, throat and soft palate may sound like a good thing, if the tissues get relaxed, they can partially block your airway. The partial blockage means they vibrate as air rushes past them.
So, the narrower your airway becomes, the more intense the vibration, which makes for a louder snore. A number of factors can affect who snores and why, with everything from the anatomy of your mouth to alcohol consumption known to be contributing factors. Thankfully, there are plenty of remedies that can help, so we've taken a closer look at some of the ones that actually work...Read more about Snoring Causes
Chinstraps are generally considered to be the easiest snoring remedy to use. In their simplest form, they are a piece of fabric which provides support to your chin, complete with straps that go along the side of your face and round the top of the head. If you wear a chinstrap before going to sleep, you're effectively wearing a sling which will hold your jaw in place. This means your mouth stays closed in a forward position, dramatically lowering any risk of your tongue or throat tissues falling back and blocking your airways, and therefore reducing snoring.
If you're after something that promotes comfort, as well as reducing snoring, then My Snoring Solution could be for you. Essentially a jaw supporter, My Snoring Solution, works to keep the lower part of the jaw in an upward facing position. This increases the space in your airway, reducing both soft tissue vibration and the air velocity. A reduction in soft tissue vibration and air velocity means snoring can be reduced substantially or even eliminated. Read The Review
The SnoreRx is another type of snoring mouthpiece that has been designed to keep the jaw in a forward position, which in turn helps to keep your airways open and reduce snoring. The SnoreRx has been praised for its ease of use. All you have to do is boil a cup of water in the microwave, then place the SnoreRx in the cup for 90 seconds or so. After that, simply place the SnoreRx in another cup of room temperature water for 2-3 seconds. Once that's done, place the SnoreRx in your mouth and bite down firmly in order to create an impression. After that, your SnoreRx is ready to go. Read The Review

Dr Williams collaborated with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for a number of years. During that time they tested a number of theories relating to snoring and sleep apnea and, when all was said and done, their tireless research led them to the construction of a mouthpiece that aided in easier and more natural breathing while asleep.The Sleep Tight Mouthpiece was born!

The mouthpiece is adjustable as well as customisable and will allow your jaw to move from side to side. The idea behind the flexibility of the mouthpiece is that it reduces the stress on the jaw, which in turn improves the effectiveness. It's also great if, like me, you grind your teeth as the unique design helps protect them. Read The Review

One of the biggest culprits when it comes to snoring is relaxed throat muscles during sleep. The position of your head can often affect the level of your snoring, but there are plenty of pillows available that can help you combat snoring. Many of them will monitor your breathing sounds as well as the position of your head on the pillow. Often, they will come with air chambers and position sensors, which work to detect snoring and then move your head to the side gently. The movement assists in stimulating the throat muscles that are causing vibrations. All movements are gentle and have been specifically designed to neither wake you or your partner. Depending on what pillow you choose, you may find one that will inflate and deflate during the night, based on what your snoring pattern is. In some instances, anti-snoring pillows will even connect to an app to provide you with sleep data, allowing you to track your snoring levels.
Continuous positive airway pressure therapy, or 'CPAP' is one of the most advanced snoring remedies available. CPAP uses a machine in order to help you breathe more easily during sleep. It also works to increase the air pressure within your throat. Increased air pressure means your airway doesn't collapse as you breathe in. A CPAP machine will come with a mask designed to cover your nose and mouth, a mask that only covers your nose and prongs that fit into your nose. It's relatively easy to apply, although using the machine may take some getting used to. Ultimately, CPAP is one of the most effective non-surgical snoring remedies available, so if snoring is a particular problem for you and your partner, it may be worth considering.
The ZYPPAH is a revolutionary product that not only advances the lower jaw, but also supports the tongue. ZYPPAH has patented tongue elastic in-built, which has been designed with stopping snoring in mind. The product combines more traditional snoring mouthpieces with an extra piece of tongue elastic. That extra piece of elastic acts like a tongue seat-belt and stops it from blocking your airway, effectively making the occurrence of snoring incredibly difficult.
A snoremender is a type of snoring mouthpiece which is worn at night. It is designed to hold the jaw in a slightly forward position. The idea is that the snoremender prevents both the jaw and tongue from falling back, which means the airway is kept open to stop you from snoring. With moulded upper and lower trays which fit over the teeth, the snoremender has proved to be an effective snoring remedy which still gives the user full movement of their jaw.
Nasal dilators are usually silicone products that are slipped into each nostril and worn internally, housed in the lower part of your nose as you sleep. As we get older the cartilage on our nostrils can slowly become softer. When we sleep, we breathe deeply, which can cause the cartilage to collapse and get sucked closed. Nasal dilators have been designed to stop the collapse from happening and can reduce snoring simply by allowing you to breath more easily through the nose whilst sleeping on your side. They can help prevent you from rolling onto your back and breathing through an open mouth, both of which have been known to put pressure on the airway, which can cause snoring.
