Nasal strips for snoring

Breathe easier all night

Snoring not only affects your sleep -- and anyone else's within earshot -- it can affect your health as well. High blood pressure, artery disease, muscle fatigue, and chronic headaches are some of the conditions that can result.

But take heart. If your snoring isn't caused by a serious problem, finding relief may be as simple as sticky strip across your nose.

How it works

When you're asleep and your airways are blocked, you snore. It can be caused by the vibration of your soft palate or air passing through blocked or swollen nasal passages, Plenty of remedies exist -- some work, some don't. But one drug- and surgery-free snoring solution is gaining acclaim -- nasal strips.

Their simplicity makes nasal strips a brilliant invention. They are just strips of flexible plastic with an adhesive backing. When you stick them across your nose just beneath the bridge, they automatically try to straighten. This creates a gentle, continuous pressure that makes the nostrils expand. And voila ! The nasal airways open, airflow improves and the frequency of snoring drops.

Helps you sleep better

A small European study involving habitual snorers with confirmed nasal obstructions but no sleep apnea put the Breathe Right brand of nasal strips to the test.

Compared to a placebo, the strips significantly reduced the amount -- but not the loudness -- of snoring in the 12 participants. Researchers speculated that the sound was unaffected because it is created in the throat, not the nose.

Buying advice

A nasal strip may be just the thing to relieve your snoring and give you a more comfortable night's sleep. But you need to use it correctly. First of all, make sure you get the right size. you need a strip that only covers your nose -- it's too big if it touches your cheeks. Then follow the directions to make sure you place it in the right spot.

Since nasal strips are disposable and can be used only once, you may want to save money and buy generic rather than name brands.

If nasal strips and other self-help remedies don't work, make sure you see a doctor about your snoring. it may be a symptom of a more serious health issue that you can't afford to overlook. And you may need more radical measures to overcome your problem, such as apnea treatment or weight loss.
