The Science Behind Snoreeze

Snoreeze Throat Spray and Nasal Spray

The Snoreeze Throat Spray targets the main cause of snoring: dehydration of the soft tissue at the back of the throat. The formulation lubricates the throat to help reduce the vibrations that cause snoring.

When nasal tissue swells during a cold (or allergic reaction), the airflow through the nose becomes blocked or restricted. This congestion might force a person to breathe through their mouth – and this can lead to snoring. The Snoreeze Nasal Spray works as a tissue lubricant and a decongestant, opening the airway in the nose to provide snoring relief.

How do the Snoreeze formulations work?

Both formulations contain microspheres. Microspheres are multi-layered and encapsulate the active ingredients in the Snoreeze formula. These ‘onion-like’ structures provide a controlled, time-release effect and are clinically proven to be effective for up to 8 hours.

Throat Spray

The Throat Spray formulation:

  • Contains tricalcium citrate. This stimulates the body’s natural production of fluid/mucous. This means that hydration increases within the mucosal tissue at the back of the throat.
  • Is anti-inflammatory. This speeds the repair of soft tissue in the throat damaged by vibration through snoring.
  • Has thermo-gel properties. The formulation leaves the bottle in a fine spray, and turns to a gel when it’s warmed by contact with the mucosal tissue in the throat. The gel then hydrates and lubricates the soft tissue.

At 25-30°C, the thermo-gel network starts to develop.

As the Throat Spray reaches body temperature, regions of gelation (“gels”) have formed.

Nasal Spray

The Nasal Spray formulation:

  • Contains Poloxamer 407. This forms a fine protective film in which sustained relief microspheres slowly release the active ingredients. These hydrate the nasal passage and reduce the vibrations that cause snoring.
  • Contains ingredients that have a decongestant effect, such as marigold extract, thyme and lavender. These reduce tissue swelling and open the nasal airway.
