For the past month, I’ve been using an anti-snoring device called AirSnore.
I’ve always been a snorer, but it’s been getting worse and worse for the past year.
I wake the whole family up with my snoring. Even the dog sometimes goes and sleeps downstairs because of it.
I wake up every morning with a sore throat and a splitting headache and have so little energy that just getting through the day can be a challenge.
It wasn’t me that found the AirSnore device. It was my wife. She said, “Honey, you need to try this.”
They say that AirSnore helps you stop snoring instantly and even comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee.
So, I decided to give it a try.
Does it work?
Carry on reading my AirSnore review to find out!
AirSnore is a company that makes two anti-snoring products:
You can buy them separately or as a combo.
Both products are made in FDA-approved facilities, which means they are compliant with safety standards, not that the FDA has approved their use.
There are two parts to the AirSnore system: the mouthpiece and the drops.
The AirSnore mouthpiece is a “boil-and-bite” device you need to mold to fit your mouth.
You put it in hot water, wait for it to soften, then bite into it to mold it to the shape of your teeth and gums.
Once it feels comfortable, remove it, and run it under cold water to “set” it in the correct shape.
Wearing the mouthpiece at night is supposed to open your airways and prevent snoring.
But is there any evidence a device like this can stop snoring?
While the AirSnore may look like a standard mouthguard that you’d wear for sports, it is actually known as a mandibular advancement device (MAD).
And there is research showing that MAD mouthpieces can be very effective at reducing or stopping snoring.
According to this study, MAD mouthpieces are a “first line of treatment” for mild and moderate forms of snoring.
This study supports the idea that MAD devices like the AirSnore could effectively prevent snoring. It all depends on how badly you snore.
According to AirSnore, there are three levels or “grades” of snoring:
AirSnore says the mouthpiece will help with all three grades of snoring.
The other part of the AirSnore system is the drops.
The mouthpiece is the main product to help you stop snoring, but you can also buy the drops.
The drops contain a blend of natural oils that are supposed to help open your airways and reduce snoring even more.
Before bed, you rub the drops under your nose or on your neck or chest.
But do these drops contain anything beneficial?
Here’s what I found:
After looking into the ingredients, I can see how it would help to open up your airways and help prevent snoring.
I was still skeptical that a device like this would help me stop snoring, but it looked promising, so I decided to try it for my family’s sake.
I’m a medium to heavy snorer, so I decided to get the mouthpiece and the drops, and they only took a couple of days to arrive.
Getting set up and ready to use didn’t take long at all.
First, you need to place the mouthpiece into some hot but not boiling water to soften it:
Then you bite into it to make an impression of your teeth. And then put it in cold water to harden it, so you have a perfect mold of your bite.
The whole process takes 30 seconds, and then you’re all ready to wear the AirSnore device to bed.
I was worried about whether I’d be able to sleep with AirSnore in my mouth, but I found the device quite comfortable to wear.
It didn’t dig into my gums or feel too awkward, and it didn’t make my jaw ache so that I could wear it quite happily.
And I’m pleased to say that I did manage to drift off to sleep quickly while using it.
So, let’s talk about whether it works or not:
My first night using it, I placed a couple of drops onto my upper lip before bed and immediately felt my nasal passages start to open, making it easier to breathe.
I then popped the mouthpiece in and went to sleep.
The following day I woke up 15 minutes before the alarm feeling fresh and full of energy.
It was the best night’s sleep I’d had in years, and when my wife woke up, she turned to me and said, “you didn’t snore once last night.”
Even my daughter told me it was so lovely not to be woken up by my snoring. The dog seemed happier too!
I’ve been using my AirSnore device for almost 30 days now and recommend it to anyone who snores.
Since using it, my snoring has stopped entirely, and I’m sleeping like a baby.
And best of all, I’m not waking my family up every night, so they’re much happier.
These days, I wake up feeling much more rested and energized in the mornings. I didn’t realize how badly my snoring was affecting my health!
The AirSnore comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee, so I’d recommend giving it a try for yourself, and if you don’t like it, you can send them an email and get your money back.
