Snoring and its Effects on Sleep
Snoring is Known to Cause Daytime Drowsiness, Irritability, Lack of Concentration and Decreased Libido. Multiple studies show a positive correlation between loud snoring and the risk of heart attack (about +34% chance) and stroke (about +67% chance). This is mainly due to the lack of sufficient oxygen supply during sleep. Snoring may be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) *).
When you sleep, you relax, and the muscles in your throat relax too. When lying on your back, your tongue and soft palate fall backwards. This causes the airway to become narrow and partially closes the upper airways. As a result, the soft tissue structures of the pharynx, palate and tongue vibrate and flutter while breathing, which causes the all too familiar snoring sound. Researchers report that snoring is a leading cause of sleep deprivation. The goodnite™ Anti-Snore Pillow, is the ONLY smart pillow on the market that has been CLINICALLY PROVEN to Reduce or Eliminate Snoring.
