Choosing The Right Product

What Type of Snorer Are You?

 Choosing the right treatment to solve your snoring problem means knowing a little about why you snore, how you snore and what makes your snoring worse. Let us help you understand what is going on and how snoring relief aids help you treat the cause of your snoring.

 Snoring might seem to you like the problem itself. But really, it is only the most obvious symptom of a much more serious underlying problem. The root cause of snoring is ‘sleep disordered breathing’.  The only effective way to stop your snoring is to treat the root cause.

 Every-night snoring

Regular snoring can be very loud with more impact on the sleep of your partner than on yours. The main cause of this type of snoring is dehydration and relaxed airways that collapse in on themselves when you sleep. This allows the soft lining of the airways to vibrate causing the rasping sound of snoring. 

 Allergy, Cold and Blocked Nose Snoring

A blocked nose, cold or allergy and make you snore at certain times of the year.  Allergic reactions to dust, pollen, animal material or a virus causes nasal congestion that restricts airflow through the nasal passages. Congestion can cause you to breathe your mouth drying your throat and increasing the vibrations that lead to snoring. 

 Snoring caused by interrupted breathing whilst sleeping

If you are suffering daytime tiredness or sleepiness during the day, or if your loud and sudden snoring frequently wakes your partner, you might be suffering the sleep related breathing disorder, sleep apnoea.  The most common form of sleep apnoea, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), is caused when lack of muscle tone in the upper airway allows it to collapse, or when the soft palate at the back of the throat partially or fully closes the airway.  If you experience any of these symptoms your doctor will be able to talk to you about the available treatments.

 Seasonal, occasional or now-and-again snoring

Some snoring is difficult to label or tie down to a particular time or cause.  It might be you only snore when you have got a cold or had too good a night out, sleep in a strange bed or place. There might be a number of factors causing your snoring, but they are probably all made worse by nasal congestion and dryness in your throat. 

 Embarrassing and Away-From-Home Snoring

Snoring away from home, particularly among strangers and new acquaintances can be embarrassing.    We offer compact, dry products ideal for travellers and easily carried in hand luggage.

Snoreeze snoring relief aids offer a complete range of effective products to help you stop snoring and tailored to the way you snore and the way you live.

Reduce Snoring Loudness

Snoring relief means reducing the vibration in airways of the nose and throat that is amplified in the space at the back of your throat.

Stimulating the delicate lining of your airways to re-hydrate prevents the shrinking that makes more space for amplifying the vibrations.

Long Lasting Relief

By locking in the moisture of rehydration, further drying is prevented assuring  you of up to 8 hours relief. Delivery of active ingredients to where they are most effective

Snoreeze moisture restoring spherulites naturally seek out your delicate airway lining even when it is covered with dried mucous.

 Soothing Lubrication of Dried Airways

Restored hydration reduces the stickiness of the lining of your airways relieving feelings of rough dryness preventing dry, sore skin from rubbing.

 Dry throat and back of the throat related snoring – the regular snorer;

 Loud, Sudden and violent intermittent snoring;

Violent and intermittent snoring several times a night may be more disturbing to your partner than to you.  Day time sleepiness might also be a sign that you may have the sleep related breathing disorder, sleep apnoea.  Your doctor will be best to lead you through the available treatments including the Snoreeze Oral Device.  Fitting to your bite like a sports gum shield, the adjustable design gently positions your jaw in a slightly forward position helping to clear the obstructed airways and maintain your normal, healthy breathing.

Some snoring is difficult to label or tie down to a particular time or cause.  It might be you only snore when you have a cold, had too good a night out, sleep in a strange bed or place.  There might be a number of factors causing your snoring but they are made worse by nasal congestion and dryness in the throat.

 A combination of  Snoreeze throat spray and nasal spray will provide relief from both the rehydration and congestion that contribute to the multiple causes of snoring.

 Snoreeze snoring relief aids offer a complete range of effective products to help you stop snoring and are tailored to the way you snore and the way you live.

 

*Sleep apnoea is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound.  If you suspect you have OSA, we recommend you see your doctor.

 

 

 

 

Snoring - Its definitely you and it is your problem!

Relationship

Snoring: It’s Not Me It’s Definitely You, And Your Problem!

 Problem snoring is easily solved when both halves of a couple act as one and this is the best way forward.  However, the nightly snoring of one half of a bed-sharing couple can all too easily become ‘someone else’s problem’ an SEP.  For the snorer, who might well sleep through the whole night undisturbed, it is not a problem for them.  While for the non-sleeping, non-snorer, their partner’s snoring may disturb them but is not their problem to solve either.

 A double SEP, and they are both wrong. That’s because, like every problem in a relationship, snoring is a shared problem that won’t get sorted until both partners see it that way.

If you have been there, then your sympathy might be with the sleep deprived non-snorer. But you have to feel something for the partner who snores unaware. Snorers are not encouraged to admit they snore; and who can blame them? Snorers get such bad press. The media portrays snorers as the worst combination of old, lazy and ignorant. Yet the truth is that more than half of us do snore.

 What most snorers do not realise is the damage snoring could be doing to their own health, even while they sleep on regardless. Snoring is a symptom of sleep disordered breathing. This could be caused by anything from a seasonal or persistent allergy – such as hay fever or a reaction to feather pillows, to sleep apnoea – when normal breathing temporarily ceases entirely.   Interruptions in sleep time breathing cause oxygen starvation. Researchers are increasingly convinced that repeat events of oxygen starvation increase your risk of serious diseases including high blood pressure, heart failure, type 2 diabetes, stroke and dementia.

The health of one partner in a relationship is quite definitely not an SEP.  What’s more, the sleep deprivation inflicted on the non-snoring partner can have similar long-term health implications for the non-snorer.

 So what can be done?

Well, maybe the first step is for each partner to set aside their own interests and make the wellbeing of the other their primary concern. The non-snorer might help the snorer counter the health risks of persistent oxygen deprivation by creating a more comfortable, allergy free sleeping environment.  They might discuss their concerns over possible sleep apnoea or research products for the relief of sleep disordered breathing.  The snorer might try to understand the impact of sleep deprivation on their non-snoring partner. Listen to them – stories of tiredness and irritability at work, fears over their career and even sleepiness when driving.  Do not risk their health through an avoidable lack of sleep.  Take the lead in trialling products to help you both find the healthy, restorative night-time sleep you both need to be at your daytime best.

Snoring is a particularly difficult one for couples because it happens when neither partner is best placed to help the other.    The problem that occurs at night, is best sought out in the day. Just remember, there is no SEP in a strong relationship, unless it stands for ‘sharing every problem’.

 

 

What is Nasal Congestion?

Hayfever

Snoring and nasal congestion – what is nasal congestion?

 ‘If only I could breathe through my nose, I would stop snoring now!’

 How many times have you thought that?  Blowing your nose is like trying to force your way through heavy traffic by driving closer to the car in front.  It just makes congestion worse.

 That is because the amount of catarrh in your nose, is only half of the congestion problem.

 Nasal congestion causes snoring – Snoring worsens nasal congestion

 It is a vicious circle.  Snoring is the sound of your body struggling to force air through too narrow airways.  Your narrowed airways collapse inwards with a loud rasping snore and become dry, sore and swollen.  Your body tries to protect the dry and inflamed membranes by over-producing the thick, sticky substance you recognise as catarrh.

 Heavy catarrh plus narrowed airways make congestion.  A cold, hay fever or other allergy will make that congestion worse and make you snore even more.

 Opening your airways eases nasal congestion and relieve snoring

 Snoreeze natural ingredients are formulated to ease congestion, relieve the discomfort of dry soreness by helping you breathe freely and easily through open airways.

 Natural peppermint extracts, menthols and eucalyptus oils in Snoreeze snoring relief oral strips, nasal and throat sprays reduce inflammation, soothe dry soreness and ease nasal congestion.

 Break the vicious circle of nasal congestion and problem snoring.  Breathe more easily, rest more easily and snore less with Snoreeze.

Stopping snoring may also help you to reduce your Alzheimer’s risk

What is Alzheimer’s Disease? 

Put simply, Alzheimer’s is the early death of brain cells.  This leads to fewer and fewer nerve connections between the surviving brain cells.  For a properly functioning brain, the number of nerve connections are just as important as the number of living cells.

Losing more and more connections leads to increasing memory loss and a decline in mental powers of reasoning.  Scientists are still trying to discover what causes this loss.

One area of growing interest is the role of ‘hypoxia’ in Alzheimer’s Disease.  Hypoxia simply means oxygen starvation.  Researchers into dementia are becoming more and more convinced that oxygen starvation is a powerful driver behind the development of Alzheimer’s.

Snoring is a sign of sleep related breathing interruptions and Hypoxia

Snoring is the sound of difficulty in breathing.  Muscles that normally keep open the airways of the nose and throat relax during sleep.  Unsupported by muscle tone, the lining of these airways collapse blocking them for up to several seconds many times a night.

Blocked airways cause oxygen starvation.  The brain tries to turn the oxygen on again by forcing deeper breaths.  Sudden breaths rattle through the obstructed airways causing loud, sometimes explosive, bursts of snoring.

The most severe form is snoring is a symptom of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).  OSA suffers can snore loud enough to wake anyone sharing a bed, without waking themselves.

OSA is a response to on-going oxygen starvation.  To stop snoring means finding a way to keep those airways open.  This is the first step towards preventing night-time oxygen starvation and protecting yourself against Alzheimer’s.

Stop snoring, fight Hypoxia and reduce Alzheimer’s risk

Anything that helps you breathe freely and easily whilst you sleep will help relieve your snoring problems.  Keeping your sleep area free of allergens like pollen, dust or pet hairs and making sure you have enough ventilation is a good start.  Good pillow-support for your neck and head also helps.

You can help restore muscle tone to your airways and ease the dryness of your throat with tried and tested snoring relief aids such as Snoreeze lozenges and melt-in-the-mouth oral strips.

Snoreeze nasal spray and throat spray will directly target snoring caused by colds, allergies or a blocked nose.  A unique blend of effective ingredients ease congestion and soreness for easy breathing and a peaceful night’s sleep.

 Just like breathing aids used by athletes, Snoreeze nasal strips help brace and support the nostrils.  Keeping your nostrils open helps air to flow in and out of your nasal passages more easily.

For loud, severe snoring the reusable Snoreeze oral device will keep your jaw in the best position for easy breathing.  The sides of your throat are prevented from rasping against each other ending your snoring problem for you and your partner.

Kiss snoring goodbye


Kissingday       

 

Save your relationship, kiss snoring Goodbye!

 

Your partner’s snoring might not be bad enough to break your relationship but if you have noticed it, that’s an admission it is putting it under strain.

If your partner is waking you several times a night, it is not just your relationship that is under strain but your health too!

Sleep disruption and snoring is more common among sufferers of many serious conditions including dementia, heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

Snorers suffer breathing disruption, which robs their brains of its oxygen supply.  Oxygen starvation increases a snorer’s risk of serious illness, but it is not only the snorer who suffers.  The same diseases linked to sleep disordered breathing are also linked to sleep disruption caused by a snoring partner.

People who snore, or have their sleep disrupted by snoring, also tend to fare less well in daytime activities.  People with poor sleep patterns and disordered breathing are more likely to report feelings of irritability, an inability to concentrate and reduced problem solving skills.  They also tend to suffer daytime sleepiness, increasingly linked to cases of dangerous driving.

That is why helping your partner stop snoring can save your relationship, save him and save yourself.  All you need is a little specialist help from Snoreeze, the brand leaders in snoring relief aids.

Snoreeze snoring relief aids offer a range of effective products to fit your needs and lifestyle.  Easily included in your bedtime routine, Snoreeze snoring relief does not encroach on the intimacy of your sleeping together. 

Choose Snoreeze throat lozenges and spray to help restore muscle tone to your partner’s airways and ease the feelings of dryness in the throat.  Refreshingly minty and 100% natural, Snoreeze oral strips dissolve quickly in the mouth providing nightly snoring relief.

Snoreeze nasal spray and strips directly target snoring caused by colds, allergies or a blocked nose.  The unique blend of effective ingredients helps ease congestion and soreness for easy breathing and a peaceful nights sleep.

Just like the breathing aids used by athletes, Snoreeze nasal strips help brace and support your partner’s nostrils.  Keeping his nostrils open helps air to flow more easily in and out of his nasal passages.

For severe/heaving snoring, which is a sign of sleep disordered breathing it is likely that the snorer is not getting enough oxygen whilst they sleep, they may even have sleep apnoea. The reusable Snoreeze oral device will open airways helping you to breathe quietly and easily and also  preventing your partner’s airways collapsing whilst he sleeps.  By keeping his jaw in the best position for easy breathing, the device helps end his snoring problem.

Take action now to stop your partner snoring.  Rediscover the intimacy of sleeping soundly together with the help of Snoreeze snoring relief aids.

The Risk of Smoking & How It Could Trigger Your Snoring

It’s been in the news lately that vaping has helped almost 20,000 people stop smoking. Which is great. We’ve all known of the dangers of smoking for a while now and the problems it can cause on our health. But it’s still difficult to put out that last bud for good.

Add smoking – even living with a smoker – to the list of things that can trigger snoring. Cigarette smoke can irate the lining of the nasal cavity and throat which can cause swelling. The more congested the nasal passage is the more difficult to breathe through your nose becomes. With each cigarette, the likelihood of snoring increases.

Smoking

If you’re not vaping already, it’s advised to avoid smoking for at least 4 hours before going to bed. Stopping smoking altogether could help to alleviate smoking-related snoring. This can be difficult, but the NHS have some really great resources to help you kick the habit for good.

Here’s a range of products that could help… Our Snoreeze Throat Spray, which is proven to be effective for up to 8 hours contains natural ingredients to battle snoring. We also have Snoreeze Lozenges that are fast dissolving to target snoring for immediate effect. 

How Sleep Helped Olympic Champion

Michael Phelps, the world’s greatest swimmer, ended his career after five Olympic games, in Rio 2016. Phelps spent countless hours in the pool as he trained for his final appearance in the Rio Olympic Games. He won five gold medals and a silver, making a total score of 23 Olympic titles and 28 medals!

During training, back in 2015, Phelps only began to consider how important sleep is. The Olympic swimmer averaged over seven hours of sleep a night, leading up to Rio. A target he wanted to aim for while in Rio, as well.

Sleep still isn’t fully understood for fitness training. However, sleep and nutrition can help training plans for coaches as early as the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. This can help monitor how the body responds to certain levels of sleep and how it effects or hinders athletes’ overall performance.

In our recent YouGov survey, 60% of the general public snore in the UK. 58% either disrupt their own sleep or their partner’s – which isn’t good, and a shocking 89% have never purchased a snoring relief product either. Just think of the potential athletes the average person could be if they had a better sleep. Here at Snoreeze we challenge you to reclaim your 8 hours’ sleep. Discover why you snore in our snoring section or try a Snoreeze product and make it part of your bedtime routine.

We recommend 7 – 9 hrs sleep for adults for a good night’s sleep. Ultimately, seeing the results in Rio, having a healthy sleep worked well for Phelps. He won six medals – including five golds. 

The highest percentage of snorers in the UK revealed!

Our recent survey, carried out by YouGov, the results showed us where the highest percentage of snorers in the UK come from. We conducted our questions to 12 regions across the land, and found out that the North East has the highest percentage of snorers with a massive 78%. And with a population of over 2.5 million – that is a lot of snorers.

Of the 78% of snorers in the North East:

 

  • 90% have never purchased a snoring relief product.
  • Only 16% worry that they may suffer from Sleep Apnoea.
  • 46% of the region admitted that their snoring would be an issue if they stayed at a friend/relatives house and travelling on an aeroplane or by public transport.
  • A massive 93% say they have never bought a snoring relief product for their partner, either.

 

Looking at these statistics, there are a lot of snorers in the North East that can cause so many relationships issues. Despite this, only 7% of couples with a snoring partner purchased a snoring relief product. This means that there are a lot of partners across the North East being disturbed, and a lot of relationships left to suffer.

Also, a lot of people are unaware that they may suffer from Sleep Apnoea. For further information on Sleep Apnoea, visit our page Do I Have Sleep Apnoea?
