*Silent Snore Review*
When you don’t sleep well, it can have a drastic impact on your quality of life. It can even lead to accidents. The fact is that if you’re a snorer, you’re probably affecting more than just yourself. All of that snoring not only keeps you from getting the deep sleep you need to function but also affects the sleep of your partner.
Sadly, many people just live with the consequences of this lack of sleep. In fact, many people who snore don’t even know they’re doing it until a partner says something to them. In some cases, it can cause arguments and rifts in a relationship.
What Causes Snoring?
Lots of people snore, but some people snore more loudly than others. Snoring happens when the airways into our lungs are fully or partially obstructed. This can happen for any of the following reasons:
- Obesity: Being overweight causes more than a risk of heart disease and diabetes. It can also have a much more immediate impact in the form of snoring. All of that extra weight places pressure on the body and the airways. This can lead to an obstruction that causes the person to struggle to breathe. The vibration of the closed-up airways cause the loud snoring.
- Alcohol: Likewise, drinking too much alcohol can actually lead to snoring. Quite apart from the excess weight that may be associated with too much drinking, the alcohol will also relax the muscles around the airways and in the throat and jaw. When these areas are relaxed, it can lead to the airways becoming partially or fully blocked.
- Allergies: People who suffer from allergies often have swollen areas of their throat and nasal passages. The excess mucus caused by too much histamines produced by the body can also have an impact on breathing.
- Physical problems: People with a deviated septum and other physical issues can experience more snoring than would otherwise be normal for them. Treatment of some of these conditions may involve surgical intervention.
Sleep apnea is a common condition that affects millions of people to varying degrees. This is when sleep is interrupted throughout the night due to breathing difficulties. One symptom of this is snoring.
Why Is Snoring So Bad?
Apart from the fact that snoring keeps the person from getting decent sleep, it can also be miserable for anyone else in the same room or the same bed. They’ll be disturbed by the racket throughout the night and will struggle to get the restful sleep they need.
Just consider the following effects of lack of sleep, not just on the person snoring, but also on anyone else in the vicinity:
1. Tiredness and Fatigue
You may experience a poor night of sleep now and then, but be able to catch up the next night. The problem for snorers and those who love them is that there is never any catch-up. All of that snoring results in a lot of sleep deprivation and fatigue. It tends to be the kind of lethargy that many people live with every day and blame on modern living and stress.
2. Lack of Focus and Concentration
When a lack of sleep builds up, it will inevitably affect our ability to concentrate. This can have wide-ranging effects, from not concentrating when driving to not being able to focus at work or school. Clearly, the impact this can have has the potential to ruin a career or even cause loss of life.
When the brain suffers from lack of sleep, we experience microsleeps. This little sleep may only be for a second or two, but this time the damage may have been done. For example, a truck driver who suffers from these microsleeps can run off the road or cause an accident.
3. Affected Reflexes
Studies have actually found that people who are sleep deprived perform just as well in a car as those who have been drinking. That is to say, they lack focus, make poor judgments, and lack reflexes. When reflexes are affected, it can have devastating effects.
4. Altered Moods
We all know someone who doesn’t get enough sleep. They tend to be irritable, get angry more than usual, have emotional outbursts, and may even cry a lot more. This is what snoring can do to a person and it’s not pretty.
What Can Be Done?
Given how prevalent it is, it’s no surprise that the majority of people simply live with the consequences. They go about their lives mostly unaware of the effects of sleep deprivation and live their lives that way. In some cases, a person may request surgery, but this can be expensive and painful.
In other cases, a CPAP machine may be recommended. This is similarly expensive and is so noisy that it can still keep the other person in the room awake anyway.
Can you imagine how this affects relationships? There are some marriages where both people sleep in separate rooms because one of them is a terrible snorer. To make matters worse, all of the exhaustion and moodiness can make home life quite difficult, and this not only impacts the person who snores, but also everyone else in the house.
The good news is that if you snore, you may not even need surgical intervention. You may not need one of those expensive CPAP machines either. Silent Snore is a product that promises to all but eliminate snoring without the need for an expensive fix. But does it really work? Here’s our Silent Snore review:
What Is Silent Snore?
Silent Snore is a small device made from soft silicone that fits into the nostrils. When inserted, it actually looks like a clear silicone nose ring, so it’s quite unobtrusive.
The fact that the Silent Snore is so small and unobtrusive means that it won’t draw attention. This is one of the things that we really like about it. Lots of anti-snoring devices tend to be bulky or just look downright silly. The Silent Snore is a winner in this regard and gets a tick from us for looks and feel.
It’s also not very expensive. This is one other thing we definitely love about it. If you’ve been looking around for a device to help with your snoring or the snoring of your partner, buying the Silent Snore is a no-brainer really.
How Does Silent Snore Work?
So, how can a silicone device that looks a bit like a small nose ring stop snoring? The Silent Snore works by propping open the nasal cavities. On the end of each of the arms is a small nodule that works to keep the nostrils open during the night.
What we found curious was the inclusion of tiny magnets inside the bulbous ends of the Silent Snore. According to the Tibetans, magnets are supposed to help stimulate the nerves. In this case, the magnets may work by stimulating the nasal cavities. Whether you believe this or not, the fact is that the inclusion of the magnets won’t be an issue.
Once the nasal cavities are opened up, breathing becomes easier at night. Thus, the snoring is alleviated to the point of either a very mild growl or not being there at all. We think the Silent Snore would be especially beneficial to someone who suffers from a deviated septum, as it would open up the nasal airways and make it easier to breathe during the night.
In use, the Silent Snore couldn’t be easier. It’s a simple matter of pinching both sides of it and then inserting it into the nostrils. The bulbous ends will rest exactly where they need to without any further intervention.
How Does Silent Snore Feel?
So, how does it feel? It’s not every day that you put something like this up your nose, so it needs to be comfortable. The good news is that the Silent Snore is very gentle.
The silicone is soft and squishy, which means that it won’t feel harsh. Your nasal passages are quite sensitive, so the last thing you want is to be putting something up there that makes them feel uncomfortable.
Understandably, it feels a bit odd the first few times you insert the Silent Snore, but this soon passes and you won’t feel it much at all after that. This means that you can get a good night of sleep without having to be concerned that the Silent Snore is going to keep you awake.
Is it Safe to Use?
The other thing you will want to know about Silent Snore is whether it’s safe. No Silent Snore review would be complete without answering this important question.
The good news here is that it’s made of a high-grade soft silicone material that is also rated as friendly to the environment. What we also found is that it doesn’t have an odor when we placed it into our nostrils. Some plastics and rubbers do have a smell, but the high-grade silicone material used here is odorless. This makes it much easier to use overnight.
How Is it Cleaned?
The Silent Snore can be used over and over again, but it does need daily cleaning. The soft silicone material will last for a long time, but it does need to be cared for. Once you build it into your daily routine, it won’t be a big deal.
Once it has been used overnight, just soak it for a little while in hot water. This will get rid of any impurities and will leave it fresh and clean for the next night. Fortunately, the Silent Snore also comes with a nice little plastic case that can be placed out of the way on a shelf or packed in a bag for travel. This ensures that it won’t pick up any dust and grime when not in use.
What Do We Like About This Product?
This is what we love about the Silent Snore solution:
Easy to use
Compare the size and ease of use of the Silent Snore to a CPAP machine! There really is no comparison. If you’re in the market for an anti-snoring solution, the Silent Snore should definitely be on your wish list. We love the fact that’s it’s just so easy to use. Just pinch it and insert it. The slight weight of the magnets and the bulbous ends make sure that it stays in place during a night of easier sleep.
The Silent Snore is also teeny tiny compared to other anti-snoring solutions. It’s definitely smaller than a CPAP machine, but it’s also quite a bit smaller than other anti-snoring solutions on the market. We really enjoy the fact that it can easily be taken anywhere, including on vacation, in a very discreet manner.
In use, the Silent Snore is really so tiny and soft that it doesn’t feel intrusive at all when inserted in the nose. Though the statistics indicate that more men have a snoring problem than women, Silent Snore is fine for both men and women.
We love products that are also environmentally friendly, and the Silent Snore doesn’t disappoint in this area. Unlike many products on the market today, it can be used over and over again as long as it is cleaned every day and stored properly in the plastic case that comes with it.
All of these factors make for a unique product that will really be of great benefit to many people.
What About Exercise?
A lot of people who have snoring issues also have problems getting enough air into their lungs due to issues like a deviated septum. In these cases, the Silent Snore can actually be used. For example, sliding the Silent Snore in before going for a run or doing some exercise will allow more air to enter the nasal passages. This can make the activity easier.
Due to the small size and discrete nature of the Silent Snore, it can also be used during sports. It really just looks like a small transparent nose ring, and will not be very noticeable when being worn.
Silent Snore Review
Who Should Use It?
Anyone who has a snoring problem can use Silent Snore, or at least try it out. Those who have spent excessive amounts of money on machines and other anti-snoring devices may find that the Silent Snore is exactly what they’ve been missing.
Of course, there are people who have very serious disorders, such as one form of sleep apnea, that should always see a specialist and will require medical intervention. In serious cases like this, Silent Snore won’t be of benefit.
No Silent Snore review would be complete without some final thoughts. So, what do we think of this tiny silicone device that promises so much?
We really like it.
The Silent Snore is small, lightweight, eco-friendly, easy to maintain, comfortable, and easy to use. More than that, it does work. Many people will find that it offers some benefits to them overnight.
Here’s what it can do for you:
- Alleviate or eliminate your snoring problem
- Fix your relationships with others in your household
- Allow you to breath more easily overnight and during exercise
- Allow you and others to get a restful night of deep sleep
- Ensure that more oxygen is moving around your body to where it’s really needed
If you’ve been living for years with a snoring problem, it’s likely that you’re not the only one who has been suffering because of it.
Many husbands and wives complain that they don’t get enough sleep because their significant other has a snoring problem. There are even cases where both people have a snoring problem and experience all of the effects of a lack of sleep because of their own snoring and the snoring of the person next to them.
There are plenty of anti-snoring devices on the market, but a great many of them are either too big and bulky, too expensive, too crazy looking or simply don’t work as intended.
The Silent Snore promises to alleviate and even eliminate snoring through the use of a single, and very small, device that is easy to use, comfortable, eco-friendly, discreet, and effective.
We think that Silent Snore offers many benefits, even to those with only a mild case of snoring. If you want to get rid of your lethargy, your moodiness, your lack of focus and concentration, and your sleep deprivation, the Silent Snore is a good option and is certainly offered at the right price.
