We hope that you find your Snorgo as successful as we anticipate you will. Please remember though that snoring can often be worsened by lifestyle factors and it is really helpful to try and address these whilst using your device. Exercise, smoking, alcohol, large meals, weight all can significantly contribute.
We believe the benefits of your training will markedly improve if you can consider any of these as well when you are using your Snorgo. We know we are the easiest to introduce but please look carefully at these other factors and try and go the extra mile to get even more benefit from your Snorgo exercise programme.

Not all of these may be relevant to you but please consider them carefully:

Exercise

Exercise can support snoring prevention – even when it doesn’t lead to weight loss.

Weight loss

Being overweight is a significant cause of snoring. Fatty tissue and poor muscle tone contribute. Particularly consider any excess weight around your neck.

benefit right

Sleep posture

Sleeping flat on your back causes the flesh on your throat to relax and block the airway. Changing this position can sometimes help.

benefit right

Large meals late in the day

Trials have shown this is probably not helpful for snoring.

Alcohol, smoking and medications

These can all contribute to over relaxation of the pharynx and increase snoring. Please try and reduce them particularly as you start to train with your Snorgo.

How does it work? border sky

We are pretty confident it relates to the training of what are called involuntary muscles of the pharynx, the space behind your nose and mouth that connects to your oesophagus (food-pipe). Involuntary muscles are different to voluntary ones, like the ones of your arm or leg, in that you can’t command them in the same way. It is because of this they are harder to exercise. That’s where Snorgo comes in. It is tailor-made to support this type of exercise. Almost like a dumbbell for the pharynx.

Snorgo appears to work by targeting the soft tissue in your mouth and helping firm them correctly for when you sleep at night. Snoring comes from vibrations of the soft tissues of the pharynx. This area becomes more floppy in some people – increasing their chance of snoring. With most floppy tissue with any close muscles, exercising the muscles can be of value. The problem is the type of muscles that are around the pharynx area we need to target are called involuntary muscles. We can’t ‘tell’ these muscles what to do as we would with say our biceps arm muscle. We can think “lift our forearm’ and our brains and nerves do the rest to help our biceps but we can’t move our pharynx muscles quite the same. Instead, we need to ‘trick it’ into doing the right movements. This is where Snorgo comes in. Snorgo has been designed to help us undertake a simple exercise that moves our pharynx just where and how we want. This quickly strengthen the area and helps prevent and cure snoring. Think of Snorgo almost like a dumbbell for the pharynx floppy tissue! The exercises have been known about and recognised to help snoring for a long time but only now are we using this patent pending technology to really help solve the problem.

Do I have to wear anything at night?

No – Snorgo is only used for a few minutes each day at a time to suit you. We advise three sets of 3 exercises each day. These only take few minutes in total.

It is really great news that a product now exists that means you don’t need to go to bed at night looking like Hannibal Lecter. The exercise is really simple and virtually anyone can do it. We have a video that demonstrates this but please get in touch if this or the leaflet don’t help. We are always happy to help. We advise three sets of 3 exercises each day. These only take few minutes in total.

How do I do the exercises

Please see the video below for a demonstration:

Is there anything else I need to do when using Snorgo?

Whilst you do not absolutely need to do other things whilst using Snorgo we strongly advise you consider them. There are a few health factors in life that influence snoring. If you can try and address these whilst doing your Snorgo exercises we suspect you will find an even greater improvement. See our About Snorgo tab which has a Support Your Snorgo Efforts for more details.

Will it definitely work?

In areas of exercise and health there are no guarantees but what we will say is that in our trial there was a significant improvement in 100{%} of those prepared to continue working with Snorgo for 4-6 weeks. There can be unusual causes for snoring, such as nasal problems, and if it doesn’t work we advise you to seek help from your doctor if snoring is a significant problem.

We have had some great successes and those who put the effort in are usually rewarded. Snorgo has undertaken an independently reviewed trial which has had medical input and there was no doubt that it worked on those who were prepared to put the small amount of effort in. In areas of exercise and health there are no guarantees but what we will say is that in our trial there was a significant improvement in 100{%} of those prepared to continue working with Snorgo for 4-6 weeks. That is pretty amasing results and surprised even us as to how effective it could be.

Will it cure my snoring?

We think it could well do – look at our testimonials. We have people who stopped Snoring after a short time with Snorgo.

We fully appreciate it seems like a bold claim but our customers are backing this. The evidence of the use of exercises is not in doubt. We feel this is THE product to help simplify those exercises and make them really work for you.

Do I just stop after 8 weeks?

With any form of exercise – whilst you may improve. If you completely go back to your ‘old life’ you may well find problems return. We suspect that most people may have to occasionally use Snorgo to keep the problem away. We don’t think you will find this a problem though. For many – it will be the best decision you have made. It is possible, if all is well at that point, you can stop initially. With any form of exercise – whilst you may improve. If you completely go back to your ‘old life’ it is possible the problem can return at some point. We suspect that most people may have to occasionally use Snorgo to keep the problem away. We do not expect that to be the amount you do initially. It may be that using it once or twice per week is enough for you. When you use Snorgo and realise how quick and simple it really is, we do not think you will find it a problem at all though. For many – it will be the best decision you have made.
