Remedies to Help Get Rid Of Snoring

Remedies to Help Get Rid Of Snoring

Snoring is so common that we often just learn to live with it. But it can occur for reasons that need to be treated, and it can obstruct the sleep of the snorer and their partner (if they have one). Here is a look at snoring, and some things you can do to diminish it.


What Causes Snoring?

Snoring is the direct result of the vibration of tissues inside the throat, most commonly the soft palate. This can happen when the airway is blocked by tissue (which can happen for a few reasons), or when it is restricted due to congestion from allergies. In these circumstances, snoring can be addressed by taking into account lifestyle factors, and the use of home remedies and measures to avoid snoring.

However, in some snorers, snoring is a symptom of an underlying condition. The most common is obstructive sleep apnea. Conditions such as sleep apnea often necessitate medical attention.


Remedies for Snoring

There are a number of things you can do to diminish, and maybe even eliminate, snoring. Some of them are in the form of a vitamin, nutrient, or other substances. Other remedies are easy measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of snoring. Each of the remedies and measures recommended here work a little differently; Some are designed to remedy certain causes of snoring, while others are general remedies for snoring that happens for any reason.

Goldenseal is a plant-based supplement that can relieve congestion in the chest and nasal passages. This effect can help clear up snoring due to such congestion

Quercetin is a flavonoid (which occurs in plants) that is made into an oral supplement. Quercetin can reduce inflammation that occurs in the nasal passages that could arise on account of allergies. This will reduce the chances of snoring. 

Vitamin C can potentially help reduce snoring that occurs due to clogged sinuses. This is because vitamin C can have a positive effect on the immune system when you are dealing with an infection, including ones that cause the sinuses to get blocked.

Hesperidin, like quercetin, is a dietary flavonoid that can reduce congestion and inflammation in the airways, thereby potentially reducing snoring. Hesperidin can be found in some buffered vitamin C supplements.

Fenugreek is an herbal remedy that can potentially reduce snoring by reducing indigestion. This is particularly true for indigestion brought on by consumption of acidic foods.

Sleeping on your side, which can more easily be done with the aid of a body pillow if you’re accustomed to this position, can help prevent snoring. This position can help prevent tissues in the throat from blocking the airway.

Get enough sleep! Getting enough sleep can actually help you avoid snoring. This is because those who don’t get enough sleep tend to have throat muscles that relax more than normal. 

Don’t drink before bed: Drinking alcohol in the hours leading up to bedtime can cause the throat muscles to relax during sleep, making it more likely that you will snore. The tip here is to avoid alcohol at least three hours prior to bedtime.

Maintaining a healthy weight can make a big difference. Those who are very overweight or obese tend to have more tissue that can block the airway. 


Snoring can happen for different reasons, and be tricky to get rid of. For the sake of you and your sleep partner, if you snore, consider the above remedies! Their effect could very much prove worthwhile in enhancing the sleep of you and your partner. Be sure to talk to your doctor before taking any supplemental remedies to reduce snoring.
