Snoring is a common condition affecting many people. It is been suggested that up to 60% of all adults snore occasionally1 and that 25% of adults are habitual snorers. It is known that the incidence of snoring increases with age2.
Snoring during sleep usually occurs during inspiration. Snoring is thought to be caused by a narrowing of the nasopharyngeal airway. During periods of relaxed breathing, such as sleep, this narrowing causes vibration of the soft parts of the oropharyngeal passage. There are many causes for this narrowing including; enlarged tonsils or adenoids, obesity, lack of muscle tone, polyps, cysts and many other anatomical conditions.
At My Life My Health Compounding, our pharmacists have compounded a pleasantly flavoured throat spray to reduce snoring. This spray acts by constricting the orophyarnx thereby reducing or eliminating snoring.
