NASA claims that sleeping with a pineapple plant can help to reduce snoring. The plant is said to produce oxygen and improve air quality throughout the night.
There's nothing more annoying than falling into a deep sleep, only to be woken by the sound of a chainsaw reverberating from your partner's side of the bed. But rather than head for the sofa, scientists claim there is one simple way to cease snoring. According to research, sleeping with a pineapple plant can help to reduce those midnight motors and help snorers – and their partners – get a better night's sleep.
NASA scientists claim that sleeping with a pineapple plant in your bedroom can help prevent snoring. NASA reports that pineapple plants produce more oxygen and improve air quality throughout the night and therefore, aid better (and quieter) sleep. With almost a quarter of Brits regularly sleeping in different rooms due to their partner's snoring, this could be the bedroom revolution British couples have been waiting for to get them out of prickly night-time situations.
Grown in Holland, the plants take between 21 and 24 months to develop to produce the inedible, miniature pineapple that adorns the top. The plant produces oxygen and improves air quality throughout the night and therefore, aid better and quieter sleep. In the hope of staving off festive fall outs, British supermarket Asda has introduced the 'miracle' plant to its shelves. Phil Smith, Asda Plant Buyer, comments: 'Snorts, snuffles and splutters affect a quarter of Brits, so for those 16 million snorers, Asda's Pineapple Plant could be a dream come true – even more-so for sleep deprived partners. 'For those lucky enough to sleep through the night without the disturbance of snoring, the plant is a chic addition to the home which is easy to care for and adds a little touch of The Tropics to any room.'
While experts have long preached the benefits of house plants, scientists are now saying that popping some greenery on your bedside table can boost your sleep and health. The presence of plants reduces stress, anxiety and helps with the removal of airborne pollutants.
Elle Decor and The Joy of Plants delved into research from NASA and the American College to determine which houseplants are best suited to your bedroom - and the benefits they provide.
Researchers say that the palm is brilliant for anyone prone to colds and sinus problems because it releases moisture into the air. This, in turn, makes it much easier to breathe so will help you nod off quicker.
Why? It releases oxygen continuously throughout the night, making it an ideal bedroom addition. It also fights benzene (which is found in detergents and plastics) and formaldehyde (in varnishes and floor finishes) so helps keep the air super pure.
Indeed, researchers at the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology found that English ivy in particular removes 78 per cent of airborne mould in just 12 hours.
