Snoring is the sound caused due to the movement of the respiratory structures, causing a vibration during breathing. Snoring varies from person to person, and the snores can be either soft and short, or loud and long sounds. Weak throat muscles are one of the causes for snoring. If the throat muscles are weak, the throat closes up whenever an individual is sleeping, which results in the blocking of air flow. When a person reaches middle age, the throat passage turns narrower and the muscle tone weakens, consequently causing one to snore. A narrow jaw, enlarged tonsils, large tongue, thick soft palate, a crooked septum, and narrow nasal valves are amongst the structural causes for snoring. A blocked air passage causes snoring, but most of us are not aware of the fact that allergies are also amongst the causes for snoring. Blocked sinus passages also cause snoring. Not having the right sleeping posture could also cause snoring. Hence, it is advised that people who snore should avoid sleeping on their backs. When we sleep, the muscles in the nose and pharynx are relaxed. The soft tissues at the back of the throat vibrate while breathing and cause snoring. The tonsils, palate and uvula flap around, whenever anything obstructs the air passage in the narrow gap in between the nose and pharynx. This causes a sound which is known as snoring. There are several factors that lead to snoring.
These factors include:
Nasal Problems: Nasal obstruction is one of the most common problems which leads to snoring. The obstruction could occur due to reasons such as nasal septum deviation, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, etc.
Pharynx Obstruction: An obstruction in the pharynx leads to vibration of soft tissues and causes snoring. It can occur due to tonsils, excessive fat tissue under the pharyngeal mucosa, hypertrophy, etc.
Smoking: Smoking irritates the throat and nasal cavity. The irritation causes an inflammation which narrows the nasal passages, consequently causing snoring.
Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea is a disorder in which people suffer from frequent interruptions in breathing, for ten seconds or more. Sleep apnea could occur several times during the night and disturb normal sleeping patterns. When someone stops breathing, the levels of carbon dioxide increase in the blood. Heavy snoring may indicate a possibility of suffering from sleep apnea.
Obesity: An increase in body fat around the throat can also lead to snoring. Since there is a lack of muscle tone, the air passage tends to collapse frequently and causes snoring. The fat tissues around the neck press the air passage during sleep, which causes air obstruction and vibration of soft tissues and leads to snoring. Reduction in weight often leads to a reduction in snoring also. Certain Ayurvedic medications can also help users to reduce their weight like AyurSlim Capsules.
Alcohol: People who consume alcohol tend to snore more than people who don’t. Alcohol slows down the brain’s responses, causing the muscles to relax more than they normally do. This causes the throat flaps to collapse easily. Alcohol also causes nasal irritation as well as congestion which leads to snoring.
There are several medications and remedies available for treating the problem of snoring. There are products like nasal strips which help to control this embarrassing problem. Doctors even advise certain exercises that help to control and stop snoring.
Ayurvedic Snoroff capsules have proven helpful in stopping snoring. Snoroff is an Ayurvedic medication which is made using a combination of rare herbs and roots. Snoroff capsules are used to effectively control and prevent snoring. However, it is always advisable to consult an Ayurvedic doctor before using this medication to control snoring.
