Correct your snoring and sleep apnea issues
Snoring is estimated to affect 40% of women, 57% of men (and even 27% of children) in the United States.
The statistics demonstrate that snoring is widespread, but the hazard and severity and health implication can vary. It can be light, occasional but it can also be a sign of a serious underlying disorder.
Snoring can be hazardous to your health. It can cause:
high blood pressure,
poor sexual function, and even
your last fender bender.
It's important to know the basic information about snoring - what causes it, what the dangers of snoring are, and what you can do to cope with it and get better sleep.

But when you lie down to sleep, gravity pulls your airway closed, and your muscles relax in sleep, allowing your airway to contract.
If your airway narrows, air cannot flow smoothly through it, which causes turbulence that vibrates the throat. These vibrations are the sounds you hear.
