Snoreeze Oral Strips
Advantages: Easy to use. Moderately effective
Disadvantages: Blue strips in blue package make it difficult to see when you're running out of them
Snoring is often considered funny, but it's far from a joke for those who share a room with a snorer!
As I sleep with the human equivalent of a pneumatic drill, we've tried quite a range of snore remedies, and these are our latest.
The manufacturer's claim:
Placed onto the roof of the mouth, the oral strips dissolve into the throat tissues and work throughout the night by actively lubricating the tissues that vibrate. The ingredients in the strips tone the tissue that vibrate and cause the snoring noise. New Snoreeze Oral Strips have been developed to relieve snoring effectively and give you and your partner a peaceful night's sleep.
What you get:
The strips come in a tiny plastic flip-top pack which in turn is attached to a card backing. The pack contains 14 strips, which are thin bluish film. They have a light peppermint taste (so I'm told!).
How they work:
One strip is placed on the roof of the mouth. This slowly dissolves, and is supposed to numb the roof of the mouth so that it doesn't vibrate and cause snoring.
Did they work for us?
To a point. They do reduce my husband's volume somewhat, and if he uses a second once the first one has dissolved, they occasionally shut him up completely (bliss!!). Having said that, we've never actually found a product that stops him snoring when used as directed.
The science bit:
The strips contain the following: Pectin, glycerin, surfactants (sorbitan stearate, polysorbate 60), water, flavours (peppermint flavour, menthol powder), cellulose, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), sweeteners (*aspartame, sodium saccharin, acesulfame-K), preservative (potassium sorbate), citric acid, sodium hyaluronate, guar hydroxypropyl trimonium chloride, colour (FCF blue).
*a source of phenylalanine
Snoreeze does not contain nut, almond and sesame oils, and is gelatin-free - state of the art technology using pectin bio-film.
These work slightly for us, but snoring can be caused by many factors such as a 'floppy' palate, blocked nasal airways, etc, so whether they work for you depends on the anatomical reason for your snoring.
Summary: Whether they are effective for you depends on why you snore, but worth a try.
