AirSnore is a natural sleep aid combination involving a soft plastic mouthpiece that molds to the inside of your mouth and a bottle of sleep aid drops. These tools can be used separately or together to increase your overall sleep quality and reduce snoring to increase sleep quality of your partner. If you suffer from restless sleep or snoring, this product is designed specifically to help you claim a better’s night sleep which can improve your mood and health overall.
Sleep is more than just a habit that we feel compelled to do each night, it is a necessary aspect of life that works to help “reboot” the body’s overall processes. Indeed, there are some critical processes that are only active, or at least more active, during sleep. For example, growth hormones are released at an increased rate while sleeping, which can greatly support certain bodily functions (such as digestion) and stimulate cell repair as a whole. This is a process that can only be adequately accomplished while sleeping, and if you are not receiving regular, restful sleep, then it is likely that your body is not functioning at the highest capacity.
There are numerous sleep aids available to try and improve sleep quality, and AirSnore is one of these. In particular, AirSnore is an excellent alternative to bulkier C-PAP machines (or other nighttime breathing devices) and complicated surgeries. Even better, the mouthpiece does not require a professional fitting, which means after you buy the product, you do not need to pay any additional money to start using your mouthpiece.
The AirSnore Drops are a natural ingredient essential oil mixture that is meant to be used primarily when you are having difficulty getting to sleep to begin with. The drops are claimed to be able to clear blocked airways and increase overall breathing quality so that you can fall asleep and stay asleep longer.
The following ingredients are the natural components included in the AirSnore Drops:
- Helanthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil – Holds a high amount of Vitamin E, which is good for the skin and hair, and works as a carrier oil for the other ingredients in the drops.
- Eucalpytus globulus leaf oil – This herb is a natural decongestant that can effectively loosen and clear persistent mucus that causes stuffiness and coughing. The oil also effectively dilates blood vessels and increases overall oxygen that passes through the body.
- Lavendula angustifolia (lavender) flower oil – Lavender is a natural relaxant that can be used to induce and promote healthy sleep. It also has antibacterial properties and can work as an effective decongestant to help improve overall breathing quality.
- Mentha piperita (peppermint) leaf oil – Peppermint is an excellent decongestant that can also be used to treat muscle aches and pains. It can clear sinuses, soothe aching throats, and ease all kinds of bodily pains to help improve sleep quality.
- Pinus sylvestris (Scots pine) leaf oil – This herb works to loosen mucus in your lungs and overall respiratory system so that, while sleeping, you can breathe better. Scots pine also has some natural pain relief properties.
The AirSnore mouthpiece is likely made of a form of moldable plastic that is common in the sleep and tooth grinding industry. However, their website does not offer any further information about the specific ingredients or materials that make up the AirSnore mouthpiece.
How Does it Work
The mouthpiece works by slightly opening up the jaw so that your upper airway is clear and can easily receive air. This method reduces your overall tendency to snore, and can help you breathe more easily at night. It fits comfortably in the mouth and can be adjusted to any size and shape of mouth. Simply place the mouthpiece in hot water for 5 to 10 minutes, remove from the water and let cool a bit (but not too much), insert the mouthpiece into your mouth, bite down firmly (but not too hard or you might damage the mouthpiece), remove the newly indented mouthpiece, and soak it in ice water so that the material can harden again. Once it is hard, your teeth impressions will remain, and the mouthpiece should fit comfortably in your mouth.
The AirSnore Drops can be applied to the chest, neck, or underneath the nostrils before bed to help decrease congestion and promote healthy sleep. Compared to other sleep aid medications, AirSnore Drops do not have sedating properties that can sometimes have harmful addictive properties. Furthermore, AirSnore Drops do not completely relax the neck muscles, which can cause snoring to worsen. These are a natural remedy for sleep that focus on clearing the airways and help ensure a better night’s sleep.
Pros and Cons
Pros: The AirSnore mouthpiece can help reduce your propensity to snore, which can drastically improve your health and your sleep. Snoring is caused when the muscles in the throat and nose relax during sleep, narrowing the airways and causing air to move more quickly through them. This fast airflow can cause the tissues in the nose and throat to vibrate, which causes snoring. In addition to being a bothersome habit that can disrupt the sleep of your partner, snoring is also a warning sign of deeper issues in your own health.
Snoring can cause you to wake up in the middle of the night, sometimes multiple times, which disrupts your deeper sleep cycle and can cause irritability, fatigue, and a lack of the necessary functions that can only occur when the body is at rest. Snoring can also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, which is a sign of the airways closing while you are sleeping which can cause a number of health issues.
The AirSnore Drops clear the airways and relieve congestion to provide a better night’s rest. Quality sleep is essential for the body to repair cells and conduct certain processes that can only be done while sleeping. The use of these drops made from natural, herbal oils help promote healthy sleeping patterns which will leave you feeling energized, focuses, and ready to take on the day.
Cons: It is fairly expensive for a device that does not allow for more fine tuned custom fitting. Also, it would be difficult (if not impossible) for individuals with crowns, implants, bridges, or dentures to wear. When you first start using the device, there is a good chance that you will experience some jaw soreness and an increased tendency to drool. These will most likely ease and lessen over time.
Since a lack of quality sleep and snoring can cause (or point to) more severe health issues, the benefit of the AirSnore mouthpiece and Drops is that it allows you to achieve more restful sleep overall. The use of one or both of these products can help:
- Reduce dry mouth
- Reduce morning sore throats
- Increase energy levels
- Improve overall mood
- Reduce the frequency of headaches
- Improve overall sleep quality
- Reduce feelings of depression and anxiety
- Improve breathing quality while sleeping
- Reduce congestion
- Promote healthy sleep
The AirSnore mouthpiece is also very comfortable to year, and has a hole in the center of its design that accommodates mouth breathing. The mouthpiece can be easily molded to form a custom fit for nearly any mouth in a short amount of time with no professional assistance needed. It is also developed in a facility that is FDA approved and comes with a 60 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the mouthpiece’s performance.
Both the mouthpiece and the drops are highly effective at helping you to reduce your overall tendency to snore and keep your sinuses clear. The drops are also completely drug free and natural, which means no unwanted addictive qualities or possible, harmful side effects that are common with pharmaceutical sleep aids. Together, the two products work to promote your body’s ability to fall asleep, stay asleep, breathe better, and reduce snoring.
The Side Effects
The AirSnore mouthpiece can possible cause jaw soreness and an increased tendency to drool while it is being used. These side effects are likely to fade over time as your body adjusts to using the device.
The AirSnore Drops do not have any known side effects since they are made out of natural, herbal oils, but it is always a good idea to talk to your doctor about starting any form of supplement or medication, especially if you are already on prescription medications.
The majority of customer reviews on AirSnore are positive. In particular, customers enjoy the combination of the mouthpiece and drops that have worked to drastically improve overall sleep quality and health. There is a general dissatisfaction with the lack of information that the manufacturer website provides about certain aspects of their products, but overall this does not stop consumers from using AirSnore and lauding its benefits.
The most common complaints from customers about the AirSnore mouthpiece include:
- The long adjustment period (possibly several days to a week) that can limit quality sleep
- Drooling and overall increased saliva production
- Difficulty to find the right fit
- The uncomfortable fit that keeps the mouth held open (takes getting used to)
- Can cause dry mouth the first few nights because it forces mouth breathing
- The uncomfortable feeling of being unable to swallow (takes getting used to)
The most common complaints about the AirSnore drops include:
- Not long lasting (definitely do not last all night)
- Similar in smell and function to commercial Vapor Rub, which is much cheaper
Even with these complaints, the majority of customer reviews are still highly positive about AirSnore and its sleep aid products. Indeed, most of the complaints about the mouthpiece in particular are based around issues that require a degree of adjustment, which is not surprising since a plastic mouthpiece is not a natural aspect of the human mouth.
Price & Offers
By itself, the AirSnore mouthpiece is offered by the manufacturer’s main site for $49.95. The AirSnore Drops are marketed at $44.95. However, if you buy the two products together, you pay $89.95, which is a savings of around $30. There are no other stores (physical or online) that offer the AirSnore at any price.
How to use the AirSnore mouthpiece?
The mouthpiece must be submerged in hot water to soften the material. After a few minutes, it can be removed from the hot water, allowed to cool just enough so it does not burn the inside of your mouth. You then place the device into your mouth and bite down on the material hard enough to make an impression of your teeth, but not so hard that you bite through the device. As the material cools, it will mold to your teeth and mouth shape. Once it has finished molding, you can remove the mouthpiece and place it in a bowl of ice water to harden the device.
If you do not succeed with a fit the first time, simply start over by placing the mouthpiece in hot water once again. Once you have the perfect fit, simply place the molded mouthpiece into your mouth before you go to sleep.
How do I look after my AirSnore mouthpiece?
It is best if you clean the mouthpiece after every use to reduce bacteria build up. The mouthpiece can be soaking in water for 10 to 15 minutes (you can mix a little toothpaste in the water for extra minty fresh cleanliness) and then allow to dry completely before your next use. Denture cleaning solutions can also effectively clean the mouthpiece.
What else can I do?
There are four major causes of snoring: sleeping on the back, obesity, smoking, and late night alcohol consumption. To try and reduce your propensity to snore, take a look at this list and determine which of these four areas you can work to improve upon to increase your overall health and, in turn, reduce your snoring.
Sleeping position may not matter if you are a particularly deep snorer, but if that is not the case, the side or stomach sleeping is the preferred sleeping positions to stop snoring. If your body naturally resorts to sleeping on your back while you are asleep, you can try sleeping on tennis balls (you can sew one or two into your pajamas) to condition your body to find sleeping on your back uncomfortable so that, while sleeping, you roll back to your side. If you cannot stop sleeping on your back, consider using more pillows or another head elevating device or pillow that can help better open your airways.
Obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle overall can contribute to snoring largely because extra weight puts pressure on your body overall, which includes your respiratory system and airways. Increased exercise and a healthier diet can help you reduce weight and, in turn, reduce your tendency to snore.
Smoking increases congestion and constriction of the lung, nose, and throat, in addition to its many other health detriments. If you are a smoker and you are suffering from excessive snoring, it is time to try quitting so that you can improve your overall respiratory health.
Alcohol has a natural tendency to loosen muscles throughout the body, including the airways, which can increase your propensity to snore. If you drink right before bed, you are even more likely to start snoring. To prevent this, avoid drinking alcoholic beverages within three hours of going to bed.
Throughout your struggle to reduce your snoring and claim a better night’s sleep, AirSnore can help to make the transition easier, less troublesome, and more successful.
