Snoring is so prevalent that it affects up to 40% of the general population. When we sleep, our tongue and the upper part of our soft palate relax and collapse to the back of the throat. This leads to obstruction of the airway and turbulent airflow which causes the tissues of the throat to vibrate. This would be the equivalent of you trying to breathe through a narrow straw.
There are a multitude of stop snoring aids and devices for sale promising to open up your airway and eliminate snoring. These aids range from straps, stop snoring mouthpieces, dental snore guards, and Anti Snore Pillows.

Many of these pillows are constructed out of memory or latex foam material and some have a curved design to fit your neck. Some even come with built in magnets to help relieve pain. These pillows are designed with a hump in the middle forcing you to sleep sideways on the pillow. Adjustable air chambers allow you to select the best neck support.
