What is snoring?
by Jayne Carberry, Nathaniel Marshall, Danny Eckert – Guest bloggers
Noisy breathing or snoring is the sound that occurs due to vibrations of tissues in the throat (e.g. uvula, soft palate and tongue banging on the throat wall) during sleep. Prevalence estimates vary, likely because there is no systematic approach to ‘quantifying’ snoring. In one large population epidemiology study, 50% of the adult population self-reported snoring. People who are overweight with increased neck fat or those who have enlarged tonsils or adenoids are more likely to snore. The repetitive vibrations can cause inflammation in nose and throat which can further perpetuate the vicious cycle of snoring. Men (middle-aged) are at higher risk than women.
Untreated snoring is not just the problem of a bed partner or family member. Snoring may cause daytime sleepiness and impaired memory. Snoring can also be a sign of another major medical condition, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) where the upper airway narrows and collapses repetitively during sleep. Similar to OSA, it has been hypothesised that snoring may increase stroke risk .
Sometimes, simple strategies such as not sleeping on your back or avoiding alcohol can prevent snoring and its symptoms. Sadly, for others, it is not so simple and more invasive treatments are required. Some people have surgery or laser treatment to remove excess tissue in the pharynx or to remove the tonsils and adenoids. Some have injections to stiffen the soft palate to vibrate less. Others wear dental devices (mandibular advancement splints) to widen the airway by pushing the jaw forward during sleep. Unfortunately, upper airway surgery can be very painful and predicting who will respond favourably to snoring therapies is not easy.
I’m writing to you to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing product!
I have endured trying to sleep next to what only can be described as a “chainsaw” for years and was coming to my wits end!
Apart from moving out of the bedroom I had run out of ideas? By chance I happened to read an article about Ripsnore and thought what do I have to loose? So I went to the local chemist and bought one for my husband. As it turns out I had nothing to loose and everything to gain, it’s amazing! It stopped his snoring immediately! Add to that he is now getting a full nights sleep, is no longer tired during the day and I am sleeping without a chainsaw next to me!
I can’t praise this simple, practical and effective Ripsnore enough, it really has changed our lives!
Thank you so much again!

We don’t usually post testimonials because of the volume however, I did meet Simon at the APP2019 and made him a promise. So….
I wish to thank you for suggesting your Ripsnore product to me. Since using it I have stopped snoring and find I have a better sleep. My partner reminds me if I don’t have it in that she will also not have a full sleep so it is a must have each night.
After going to a sleep apnoea doctor and having all the test I have found out I don’t have sleep apnoea. This still raised the question on my snoring. With many different products and procedures one can do I am glad I started with Ripsnore. Not only is it the cheapest option but have stopped me undergoing operations or introducing a machines that would not be practical for someone who travels for work plus has a wife sharing my bed.
Ripsnore is low cost, works and is simple to use without effecting your partner. Only upside is better sleep for the family and me.
