How to stop a man snoring. Believe it or not, there is actually a way to cure snoring in both men and women as we know that snoring is under-reported in women (Westreich et al., 2019) . By strengthening the involuntary muscles around the airways that are responsible for snoring, our testers said noticeable improvements were seen after just one week and 75% said their snoring was cured after 6 weeks. We recommend our tool to help stop a man snoring (or anyone for that matter).
Snorgo is a small device that is inserted into the mouth to complete a series of exercises in short bursts throughout the day. Each set of exercises takes just 1-2 minutes to complete and as we recommend using Snorgo 3 times a day, men in need of a cure for disruptive snoring will only ever need to find 5-6 minutes in total – that’s less time than it takes to drink a pint or fill up the car!

We all know that sleepless nights are no joke. Regularly disrupted sleep due to the snoring of others can cause chronic fatigue, mood swings and lack of concentration leading to a pretty miserable day ahead. To help you to keep sleep on track and ensure you have a spring in your step when you wake up refreshed, this article will take you through the reasons men snore in the first place, simple tried and tested lifestyle changes that men can implement to ease their snoring, and explain how using Snorgo can help to reduce and eventually cure male snoring for good.
Why Do Men Snore?
Men tend to get a bad rep when it comes to snoring and although it can often seem they are louder (Kalchiem-Dekel O et al., 2016 and Levartovsky et al., 2016), more disruptive snorers than women, when it comes down to it, the reasons men snore are exactly the same reasons that women do.
That snoring sound we know so well is attributed to the movement of air around the nose and mouth as we breathe in our sleep. How this airflow is impacted by individual differences in our mouths, noses, airways, nasal cavities and muscles around this area will impact just how and why a man is likely to snore.
When we sleep, air moves around the airways in our nose and throat. This movement of air causes the relaxed tissues in these areas to vibrate which results in the sound of snoring that we are all used to. Men with excess tissue in these areas or particularly relaxed muscles will generally snore more frequently and louder than others.
How Does Snorgo Help Snoring Men?
Snorgo is a British designed and manufactured, non-invasive way to address the core cause of snoring without medication or wearing mouth guards or chin straps at night. The doctors and scientists behind Snorgo have seen that by training the involuntary muscles around your airways, excess tissue vibrations are reduced resulting in less snoring. With regular training, the area will firm up and strengthen enough to stop snoring for good!
If male snorers can find just 5-6 minutes a day to complete a series of simple exercises using Snorgo, they will be well on their way to curing disruptive snoring for good. View this video to see our mouth held product and exercises in action.
4 Benefits of Snorgo Use
1. Snorgo can be combined with simple lifestyle changes for maximum results.
Although regular Snorgo use has been proven to improve and cure snoring problems on it’s own, men that snore may wish to try addressing lifestyle changes such as losing weight or cutting back on alcohol or smoking for even quicker results.
2. One off investment.
Compared to on-going medication, or nasal sprays which can be expensive over time, Snorgo can be purchased for the very reasonable, one off price of just £34.99.
3. Clean and Healthy
Snorgo is manufactured with silver ion technology that prevents microorganism growth so you can rest assured your Snorgo is safe enough for everyday use.
4. Snorgo is convenient to use
Snorgo is portable, discreet and can be used at any time during the day that is convenient for men that want to tackle their snoring meaning there are no oral guards, nasal strips or chin straps to wear at night!
How Can Men Integrate Snorgo Into Their Daily Routines?
The key to helping men build healthy habits that lead to the positive results and long term changes we’ve seen with Snorgo, is to make Snorgo use a regular part of their daily routine. This way, the exercises to help stop snoring are completed with minimal fuss and become so ingrained that snorers don’t really think about doing them, like cleaning their teeth.
The best way to do this is to associate a time or a task they’re used to doing already and combine it with Snorgo use. For example, men looking to integrate the Snorgo exercises shown in this video into their daily routines could try building three 1-2 minutes sessions around main meals, whenever they make a cup of tea or coffee, their work commute or on the way to the gym – whatever works for them!
What Causes Men To Snore?
There are basic anatomical features of the mouth, airways and nasal passages that are likely to lead to snoring such as;
- Nasal problems such as chronic congestion or deviated nasal septum (the wall between your nostrils) that lead to breathing through your mouth when sleeping.
- How relaxed the muscles in these areas are. The position men sleep in affects how their tongue will lie and those who sleep with their mouth open or breath through their mouth at night have a relaxed jaw. Generally, when men sleep on their back, their tongue will relax and drop to the back of the mouth, restricting airways enough to cause snoring.
- Any kind of obstruction to airflow can lead to increased tissue vibration and therefore more snoring. The amount of soft tissue in and around the airways is a prime area to consider as men who have low, soft palates may have a narrower airway. Similarly, excess tissue in the back of the throat is often seen in men that are overweight and can lead to narrowing of the airways.
Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking, along with sleeping positions and medical conditions such as obesity, sleep apnoea and allergies can all negatively impact the snoring contributors outlined above leading to louder, more disruptive snoring in men and women.
Do Men Snore More Than Women?
If you’ve ever Googled a question about snoring, the images and articles you’ll see do tend to be weighed in favour of women being kept awake by snoring men. Interestingly, when we look at the science, this well known cliche could have some truth to it. Basic anatomical differences between the sexes, show that men’s bodies are slightly more prone to snoring than women.
The parts of the body responsible for snoring, the soft palate and airways are key to this. Soft Pallets in men tend to be larger in overall surface area and they generally have longer airways which can be more prone to collapsing compared to women. Secondly, men are more likely to be overweight than women and drink more, both of which are factors that contribute to heavier snoring.
