15 Best Snoring Remedies

Many con­sid­er snor­ing to be an unpleas­ant but harm­less phe­nom­e­non. Mean­while, this sound phe­nom­e­non can lead to the devel­op­ment of dan­ger­ous dis­eases and con­di­tions. We asked experts about the caus­es of snor­ing and ranked the best reme­dies to com­bat it.

15 best reme­dies for snor­ing.

Accord­ing to our experts — can­di­date of med­ical sci­ences, som­nol­o­gist Nadezh­da Burko and can­di­date of med­ical sci­ences, som­nol­o­gist Eka­te­ri­na Ple­myan­niko­va, any snor­ing can soon­er or lat­er lead to sleep apnea. In Greek, apnea is the absence of breath­ing. In this state, a per­son lacks oxy­gen, which neg­a­tive­ly affects health. Most often, the heart and blood ves­sels suf­fer, so hyper­ten­sion, ischemia, arrhyth­mia can devel­op, and men often have prob­lems with poten­cyone. If snor­ing is cured in a time­ly man­ner, then these dis­eases and their com­pli­ca­tions can be pre­vent­ed.

Oral-nasal CPAP mask
Oral-nasal CPAP mask.

Spe­cial masks are con­sid­ered the best reme­dies for snor­ing. Masks are used togeth­er with devices to cre­ate pos­i­tive air pres­sure, and the tech­nique itself is called CPAP ther­a­py.2.

The JOYCE One Full Face Uni­ver­sal Breath­ing Mask is man­u­fac­tured by Loewen­stein Med­ical, a renowned man­u­fac­tur­er of oxy­gen ther­a­py equip­ment.

Accord­ing to the instruc­tions, the mask is suit­able for 80% of peo­ple with dif­fer­ent types of faces. The device is made of hypoal­ler­genic sil­i­cone using Silk­Tec tech­nol­o­gy, which pro­vides a snug and com­fort­able fit and allows you to adapt the mask to the fea­tures of the patien­t’s face.

2. Snoring machine SNOR

SNOR
SNOR.

Weak­en­ing of the mus­cles of the soft palate is a very com­mon cause of snor­ing. With the help of this sim­u­la­tor, you can increase mus­cle tone and get rid of the sound accom­pa­ni­ment in your sleep. How­ev­er, the sim­u­la­tor will not help if a per­son snores due to the abnor­mal struc­ture of the ENT organs, enlarged ton­sils and hypothy­roidism. There­fore, it is bet­ter to pur­chase the device after con­sult­ing a doc­tor.

The SNOR anti-snor­ing sim­u­la­tor has a spe­cial tube, which is con­nect­ed to the device with one side, and the oth­er side is insert­ed into the mouth in a cer­tain posi­tion (based on the soft palate). When a per­son makes suc­tion move­ments, the mus­cles of the palate are trained.

The device works togeth­er with an appli­ca­tion that is installed on a smart­phone or tablet. The smart device will first check the mus­cle tone, and then it will give tasks and eval­u­ate the results of their imple­men­ta­tion.

3. Anti-snoring bracelet SNORE STOPPER

SNORE STOPPER Anti-snoring device
SNORE STOPPER Anti-snor­ing device.

Snor­ing bracelets are referred to as “wake-up” devices. They cause the snor­er to wake up and change the posi­tion of the body. Such devices can help with posi­tion­al snor­ing, when a per­son only snores while lying on their back.

The SNORE STOPPER anti-snor­ing bracelet looks like a styl­ish wrist watch or fit­ness bracelet that will suit men and women. The adjustable strap allows you to adjust the bracelet to the exact size of your wrist. The prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion of the device is very sim­ple — there are biosen­sors inside that react to sev­er­al iden­ti­cal sounds in a row. As soon as a per­son snores, the sen­sor will give a short elec­tri­cal impulse, which will cause a slight vibra­tion in the wrist area. This will make the per­son change their pos­ture and stop snor­ing. If the short pulse does not work, the bracelet will send a longer sig­nal.

It should be not­ed that the bracelet has con­traindi­ca­tions — it is not suit­able for preg­nant women, peo­ple with epilep­sy, car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases and a pace­mak­er. Do not wear the bracelet if there are cuts, burns or oth­er dam­age on the skin.

List of top 3 best caps for snoring in adults

A mouth­guard is a device that is placed in the mouth and fol­lows the shape of the den­tal arch. The device is fixed on the teeth and “push­es” the low­er jaw for­ward. As a result, the tongue also shifts, does not sink down and does not block the air­ways, which means that the per­son stops snor­ing.

Our expert som­nol­o­gist Nadezh­da Burko notes that stan­dard fac­to­ry mouth­guards do not take into account the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the bite, so they are not suit­able for every­one. This must be remem­bered when buy­ing

4. SONite

Capa from snoring SONight C-ONight
Capa from snor­ing SONight C‑ONight.

A mouth­guard made of high­ly elas­tic SONite mate­r­i­al elim­i­nates or sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces snor­ing and reduces the risk of devel­op­ing sleep apnea. Before use, the tray is heat­ed in hot water, then slight­ly cooled in cold water, after which it is placed in the mouth and bit­ten. After such prepa­ra­tion, the cap adjusts to the shape of the bite and helps to keep the jaw in a dream in the desired posi­tion. If the sim­u­la­tion failed the first time, the pro­ce­dure can be repeat­ed twice more.

The man­u­fac­tur­er rec­om­mends that you do not go to bed imme­di­ate­ly, but first lie down with a mouth guard for 20 min­utes so that the jaw joint can adapt. The prod­uct comes with a con­tain­er. For clean­ing, you can pur­chase a spe­cial tool “Sonite”.

The ser­vice life of the cap is 3 years, but with reg­u­lar use it must be changed at least once a year. Con­traindi­ca­tions to the use of caps: epilep­sy, less than 7 teeth in the upper jaw, wear­ing a remov­able den­ture.

Main characteristics

Pro­duc­ing coun­try Rus­sia
mate­ri­als sil­i­cone, med­ical plas­tic
Pecu­liar­i­ties the shape of the mouth­guard can be changed up to 3 times in a row, the con­tain­er is includ­ed

Pros and cons

ergonom­ic design, light weight and dimen­sions, can be mod­eled up to 3 times in a row.
some users note that the mouth­guard can inter­fere and fall out in a dream.

5. Dedomon anti-snoring mouth guard

Capa against snoring from Dedomon
Capa against snor­ing from Dedomon.

An inex­pen­sive uni­ver­sal sil­i­cone mouth guard helps to slight­ly pro­trude the low­er jaw and fix it in this posi­tion. In addi­tion, the device sup­ports the tongue, pre­vents it from sink­ing and block­ing the orophar­ynx. As a result, the lumen of the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract increas­es, the per­son breathes eas­i­er and snores less.

The elas­tic sil­i­cone from which the cap is made serves as a kind of “shock absorber” for the teeth and helps with brux­ism — a con­di­tion in which a per­son clenched his jaw too much and grind his teeth in his sleep. It is very easy to use the mouth guard — just put it in hot water, and then put it in your mouth and close your jaws. After that, the prod­uct takes the desired shape, tak­ing into account the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the bite.

Main characteristics

Pro­duc­ing coun­try Chi­na
mate­ri­als sil­i­cone
Pecu­liar­i­ties there is a stor­age con­tain­er

Pros and cons

light and com­pact, low price, helps to reduce the load on the teeth with brux­ism.
like oth­er uni­ver­sal mouth­guards, it is not suit­able for every­one.

6.MyOSA S1

MyOSA S1
MyOSA S1.

A prod­uct from a well-known brand — a man­u­fac­tur­er of bite cor­rec­tion sys­tems. The MyOSA S1 Mouth­guard or Train­er is designed for peo­ple who breathe through their mouths while sleep­ing and snore due to nar­row­ing of the air­ways. The train­er helps push the low­er jaw for­ward, keep the tongue in the cor­rect posi­tion and reduce the load on the tem­poro­mandibu­lar joint. Thanks to this, the air­ways open, breath­ing becomes free, and the num­ber of snor­ing episodes decreas­es.

The train­er is made of flex­i­ble sil­i­cone and equipped with air shock absorbers, which allows you to vary the height of the bite and the posi­tion of the low­er jaw. Thanks to the high sides, the prod­uct is secure­ly held in the mouth

Main characteristics

List of top 3 best clips for snoring in adults

Nos­tri­al clips are devices that widen the nasal pas­sage, improve nasal breath­ing, and pre­vent palatal vibra­tion that caus­es snor­ing. How­ev­er, it should be remem­bered that the clip will not help if snor­ing has devel­oped due to obe­si­ty, the abnor­mal struc­ture of the nasophar­ynx and the low tone of its wall.

7. Anti-snoring clip

Clip from snoring
Clip from snor­ing “Anti-snor­ing”.

A com­pact fix­ture made of col­or­less plas­tic visu­al­ly resem­bles a horse­shoe with balls at the ends. The balls are neodymi­um mag­nets that allow you to fix the clip more secure­ly. The clip is attached to the low­er part of the nasal sep­tum dur­ing sleep. Accord­ing to the instruc­tions, the device expands the nasal pas­sages, allows you to breathe eas­i­er and reduces the palatal vibra­tion that caus­es snor­ing.

Main characteristics

Pro­duc­ing coun­try Chi­na

8. Magnetic Nose Clip

Clip from snoring Anti-snoring Nose Clip

A minia­ture clip made of med­ical plas­tic has an arched shape and is equipped with two small mag­nets. The device is fixed on the nasal sep­tum and helps to increase the lumen of the nasal pas­sages.

9. Anti Snoring & Air Purifier 2 in 1 device

Snoring Device Anti Snoring & Air Purifier
Snor­ing device Anti Snor­ing & Air Puri­fi­er.

This is not a clip, but a more effi­cient device with two nasal dila­tors and an air fil­ter. Soft sil­i­cone coiled dila­tors are fixed in the nos­trils and expand the air­way lumen, there­by mak­ing breath­ing eas­i­er and reduc­ing snor­ing. The air inhaled by a per­son pass­es through the fil­ter and is cleaned of dust and oth­er small par­ti­cles.

Accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er, the device is easy to put on and take off, does not irri­tate the skin and does not cause the sen­sa­tion of a for­eign body in the nose.

Mouth patch­es help keep the lips closed, so the per­son stops breath­ing through their mouth and snores less.

List of top 3 best pillows for snoring in adults

The anti-snor­ing pil­low gives an opti­mal anatom­i­cal posi­tion to the cer­vi­cal region and head dur­ing rest. Thus, it is pos­si­ble to pre­vent the retrac­tion of the tongue, improve the pas­sage of air through the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract, reduce the load on the spinal col­umn, and relax the mus­cles of the neck.

13. Anti-snoring orthopedic pillow 1189

Orthopedic pillow Anti-snoring 1189
Ortho­pe­dic pil­low Anti-snor­ing 1189.

This ortho­pe­dic pil­low is designed for peo­ple with “posi­tion­al snor­ing”, in which the per­son only snore while lying on their back. The pil­low is designed in such a way as to ensure a com­fort­able sleep on your side. As soon as a per­son rolls over on his back, he becomes uncom­fort­able, and he returns to his orig­i­nal posi­tion. This reduces the risk of snor­ing and dry mouth.

The prod­uct is made of hypoal­ler­genic mate­r­i­al that “adjusts” to the con­tours of the head and neck, weight and body tem­per­a­ture. Due to the even dis­tri­b­u­tion of the load, the spine and mus­cles relax and ful­ly rest.

Pros and cons

hypoal­ler­genic mate­r­i­al, com­plex action — helps to reduce the load on the spine and reduce snor­ing.
there may be dif­fi­cul­ties with care — the pil­low can­not be washed, it is only allowed to clean it with a damp cloth with a neu­tral deter­gent com­po­si­tion.

14. Snore Activated Nudging Pillow

Snore Activated Nudging Pillow
Snore Acti­vat­ed Nudg­ing Pil­low.

This device has sev­er­al names: smart pil­low, “smart” and “push” pil­low. It has a built-in micro­phone that picks up the sound vibra­tions char­ac­ter­is­tic of snor­ing. Sim­ply put, the pil­low “hears” when a per­son starts to snore and takes action: it inflates the built-in air pock­et and ris­es 7.5 cm. to snore.

The pil­low is trans­ferred to the work­ing posi­tion by press­ing a but­ton, but for the first 30 min­utes it is in inac­tive mode so that the per­son has time to fall asleep. On the side of it there is a pan­el with but­tons — it allows you to adjust the sen­si­tiv­i­ty of the micro­phone to suit indi­vid­ual needs. A wire is pro­vid­ed for recharg­ing the gad­get from the out­let.

As stat­ed in the descrip­tion, an ortho­pe­dic pil­low with a wedge-shaped pro­tru­sion and a recess for the head allows you to take the most com­fort­able posi­tion dur­ing sleep. This keeps the air­ways clear, which reduces the like­li­hood of snor­ing. The pil­low helps to reduce the load on the spine and relax the mus­cles. Inside there is an elas­tic mem­o­ry foam that quick­ly “adjusts” to the curves of the body and just as quick­ly returns to its orig­i­nal shape. The per­fo­rat­ed mate­r­i­al is breath­able and keeps you com­fort­able in the hottest weath­er.

How to choose anti-snoring products

Our expert, Ph.D., sleep­ol­o­gist Nadezh­da Burko, advis­es first of all to con­sult a doc­tor, under­go exam­i­na­tions and find out the cause of snor­ing. The doc­tor will assess the sever­i­ty of the prob­lem and deter­mine if there is a pause in breath­ing dur­ing sleep. With uncom­pli­cat­ed snor­ing with­out apnea, it is worth giv­ing pref­er­ence to snor­ing sim­u­la­tors and mouth­guards. Posi­tion­al snor­ing can be helped by devices that pro­mote changes in body posi­tion dur­ing sleep. Sprays and drops are used for severe swelling and dry­ness of the mucous mem­branes.

Accord­ing to PhD, som­nol­o­gist Eka­te­ri­na Ple­myan­niko­va, the same per­son may have a com­bi­na­tion of sev­er­al rea­sons that cause snor­ing: for exam­ple, obe­si­ty, dis­eases of the upper res­pi­ra­to­ry tract and mal­oc­clu­sion at the same time. In what sequence to treat these dis­eases and what to focus on, the som­nol­o­gist will be able to deter­mine. In any case, if a per­son is over­weight, then reduc­ing it will reduce snor­ing. Improv­ing nasal breath­ing, nor­mal­iz­ing bite, avoid­ing alco­hol will also help reduce snor­ing.one.

Reviews of doctors about snoring remedies

Eka­te­ri­na Ple­myan­niko­va explains that snor­ing sim­u­la­tors do not have an evi­dence-based med­ical basis, how­ev­er, they are active­ly used in clin­i­cal prac­tice and in some cas­es are effec­tive. Accord­ing to the expert, “wake-up” devices that “teach” a per­son not to sleep on their back can help with posi­tion­al snor­ing. Wedge-shaped anti-snor­ing pil­lows, as well as wedge-shaped mat­tress­es and beds with a raised head­board, give good results. Vaso­con­stric­tor drops from snor­ing are pre­scribed for nasal con­ges­tion against the back­ground of SARS, and hor­mon­al sprays will be effec­tive for aller­gic and vaso­mo­tor rhini­tis. How­ev­er, such sprays and drops can­not be used uncon­trol­lably.

Popular questions and answers

Snor­ing is a very com­mon prob­lem, and solu­tions are often sought on the Inter­net. We asked the most pop­u­lar ques­tions from Inter­net users to our experts: Nadezh­da Burko, PhD, som­nol­o­gist, and Eka­te­ri­na Ple­myan­niko­va, PhD, som­nol­o­gist.

Why can a person snore?

- Nor­mal­ly, snor­ing in a dream should not be. Doc­tors iden­ti­fy 3 main caus­es of snor­ing:

• nar­row­ing of the lumen of the air­ways, which very often occurs in obe­si­ty, when the mus­cles of the lar­ynx are squeezed from the out­side by an excess amount of adi­pose tis­sue;
• decrease in pres­sure in the lumen of the res­pi­ra­to­ry tract, most often due to patholo­gies of the ENT organs: enlarged ton­sils, polyps, cur­va­ture of the nasal sep­tum, vaso­mo­tor rhini­tis;
• increased com­pli­ance of the pha­ryn­geal wall — this can be due to drink­ing alco­hol and tak­ing drugs that relax the mus­cles2.3.

In gen­er­al, snor­ing is caused by the vibra­tion of the soft tis­sues of the throat. When we fall asleep, the mus­cles relax and so does the throat mus­cles. How­ev­er, their nor­mal tone should remain nor­mal. Under the influ­ence of pro­vok­ing fac­tors (obe­si­ty, dis­eases of the upper res­pi­ra­to­ry tract, mal­oc­clu­sion, etc.), the tone of the mus­cles of the phar­ynx weak­ens, and they begin to vibrate. When breath­ing in a dream, the air “beats” against the vibrat­ing walls, hence this sound phe­nom­e­non aris­es — snor­ing. The ampli­tude of vibra­tions can become larg­er, at some point the vibrat­ing walls of the phar­ynx come into con­tact with each oth­er and apnea occurs — hold­ing the breath2.3.

What makes snoring worse?

- Snor­ing is aggra­vat­ed by lying on the back with the head thrown back, by tak­ing alco­hol and seda­tives, chron­ic nasal con­ges­tion or nasal block­age. Preg­nant women and patients with hypothy­roidism are prone to snor­ing.

What are the treatments for snoring?

As Nadezh­da Burko notes, the ways to treat snor­ing depend on the under­ly­ing cause. Cor­rec­tion of the anatom­i­cal fea­tures of the low­er jaw, swelling of the phar­ynx, weight loss and train­ing of the mus­cles of the upper res­pi­ra­to­ry tract are the most effec­tive meth­ods for treat­ing uncom­pli­cat­ed snor­ing.

Accord­ing to Eka­te­ri­na Ple­myan­niko­va, if snor­ing is com­pli­cat­ed by apnea, then in some cas­es the most effec­tive method of treat­ment is CPAP ther­a­py. This is a sleep with a spe­cial device that allows you to elim­i­nate snor­ing, hold­ing your breath dur­ing it, nor­mal­ize sleep and well-being dur­ing the day.

Does breathing exercises help with snoring?

Snor­ing exer­cis­es are effec­tive for uncom­pli­cat­ed snor­ing and mild sleep apnea. Reg­u­lar exer­cise increas­es the tone of the mus­cles of the upper res­pi­ra­to­ry tract and pre­vents the pro­gres­sion of the dis­ease.

Are there effective folk remedies for snoring?

- Folk reme­dies are inef­fec­tive against snor­ing. How­ev­er, one method may still work if snor­ing occurs in the supine posi­tion. You need to sew a pock­et in the inter­scapu­lar region of a night­gown or oth­er sleep­wear, and put a ten­nis ball in it. In this case, the per­son will be uncom­fort­able lying on his back, he will take a dif­fer­ent posi­tion and, most like­ly, will stop snor­ing.
