Mouth breathing is the root cause of snoring, that's why we always identify snorers with an open mouth. If you want to sleep and not snore, especially if you sleep on your back, it is important to keep your mouth from falling open. When it does, your breathing switches from your nose to your mouth and your tongue falls from the roof of your mouth and shifts back, obstructing your airway causing you to snore. It's really that simple!
Now there is an easy solution to snoring and mouth breathing during sleep. sleepQ+ will gently help your mouth to stay closed all night so you keep breathing through your nose, and you can still breathe through your mouth when you want to. That means far less chance you will snore or wake up during the night with a dry mouth.
You're not alone if you snore…you could be if you don’t stop.
To make sure you and your partner wake up happier, sleep with sleepQ+.
It should be expensive, but it's not. A 25g tube will give you up to 70 applications for $38.80. That's around 50 cents per night for calm, restorative sleep without snoring, or if you both snore you will get twice the benefit by having a tube each. sleepQ+ is registered with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Health Canada and Medsafe NZ as a class 1 medical device for preventing involuntary mouth breathing during sleep.

More on snoring...
Snoring occurs when the muscles of the airway relax too much during sleep and vibrate (creating noise) when air we breathe passes in and out. Most people will snore at some time, however loud or chronic snoring can disrupt sleep-quality and disturb others. Particularly when loud, it is often associated with other sleep-related breathing disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).
Common causes of snoring:
Open-mouth breathing during sleep
Deformity of the nose
Consumption of alcohol close to bedtime
Being overweight or obese
Swelling of the muscular part of the roof of the mouth
Swollen adenoids or tonsils, especially in children
Medications, including sleeping tablets
Sleep position – sleeping on your back may cause your mouth to open and the throat muscles and tongue to relax. The tongue is then more likely to fall back and compress the airway, causing you to snore or making snoring louder.

Because we care about our customers we want you to know that if you intend buying sleepQ+ to help with sleep apnoea, snoring, snorting, or gasping during sleep then you should be aware these issues may be symptoms of a more serious medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
According to the Mayo Clinic:
“Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
Several types of sleep apnea exist, but the most common type is obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when your throat muscles intermittently relax and block your airway during sleep. The most noticeable sign of obstructive sleep apnea is snoring.
Anyone can develop obstructive sleep apnea, although it most commonly affects middle-aged and older adults and people who are overweight.
Signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include:
Excessive daytime sleepiness.
Observed episodes of breathing cessation during sleep.
Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath.
Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat.
Awakening with chest pain.
Difficulty concentrating during the day.
Experiencing mood changes, such as depression or irritability.
Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia).
High blood pressure.
Consult a medical professional if you experience, or if your partner observes, the following:
Snoring loud enough to disturb your sleep or that of others.
Shortness of breath that awakens you from sleep.
Intermittent pauses in your breathing during sleep.
Excessive daytime drowsiness, which may cause you to fall asleep while you're working, watching television or driving a vehicle.
Many people don't think of snoring as a sign of something potentially serious, and not everyone who snores has obstructive sleep apnea. However, be sure to talk to your doctor if you experience loud snoring, especially snoring that's punctuated by periods of silence.
With obstructive sleep apnea, snoring usually is loudest when you sleep on your back, and it quiets when you turn on your side.
Ask your doctor about any sleep problem that leaves you chronically fatigued, sleepy and irritable. Excessive daytime drowsiness may be due to other disorders, such as narcolepsy.”
