Anyone that has slept alongside a snorer is familiar with the maddening snort and gargle festival that inevitably results in not so whispered pleas of just turn on your side!
Among the many tips, tricks and gadgets offered up to snore sufferers and their exhausted loved ones, Silentnight has just released a £12 anti-snoring pillow that is giving the best of them a run for their money.
So how does it work?
According to the brands description: "The Anti-Snore Pillow works by supporting and positioning the head and neck, with an internal foam core that’s contoured to help improve breathing and body alignment."
Sleeping on your back is a certain no-no if you suffer from snoring but supporting the neck in an ergonomic position can in fact reduce the possibility of it happening again. And for some, it can stop the snuffle and wheeze altogether.
The recently raved-about Silentnight anti-snore pillow is one of the most affordable options to tackle the issue, it's hypo-allergenic, made in the UK and comes with a two year guarantee. While the snake oil charm of other guaranteed-to-change-your-life products is tempting, the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association have given this one a favourable thumbs up.
One user on the Asda website had this to say, "I was very sceptical when I bought this pillow but it seems to be working so far, it’s not 100% but there is a noticeable difference in my sleeping and less complaints from the wife."
An honest point given that not everyone is guaranteed the same success just because they bought the same product.
Another happy reviewer on Asda summed it up perfectly: "Since I bought this pillow I have had a least disturbed sleep, and so has my wife. She hasn't kicked me once since I acquired it."
