As simple as the actual action of snoring maybe from the vibration of the soft throat tissues flapping around, it is often not so simple to remedy without a little research of what is causing the snoring to begin with. The strongest start to the nightly snoring begins to happen during the transition of falling to sleep and moving into the deepest of slumber.
This is when the throat muscles and the tongue muscles really relax the most and makes for a horrible sound. Although, it has often been thought that the muscles become weaker or longer with age, but this has been found to not be true in most cases of older people and snoring. The only time that there may be true to this theory is when an individual has gained a large amount of weight and then lost it all again. The muscle weakness is due to the lack of toning from the extreme weight gaining and losing of the weight.
When looking around for the best anti snoring remedies, be wary of some devices and so called promising remedies that are out there being offered. For example, those devices that claim to end the snoring with throat tightening and retraining the throat muscles are more often than not, a waste of money and time. Since the snoring process tends to become more common with age, there really is not a way for retraining and tightening the throat muscles as you can do with the rest of the body toning.
It is when your tissues in the throat and the soft areas of the palate are highly relaxed, that there may be vibration and there also may be partial airway obstruction. The smaller the airway of the throat becomes, the stronger the force of the airflow while breathing through the mouth. It is this vibration of the tissue increases, so the snoring becomes louder and deepened.
There are many individuals that may have a lower, thicker type of palate softness, tonsils that are enlarged, a problem with enlarged adenoids, or extra tissues at the throat backing that will definitely increase the snoring issues. With a softer thickened palate, there may be narrowing of the airway, and sometimes there is occasionally the elongated uvula, which will also be a main cause of airflow construction that will increase the vibration loudness.
Some of the other reasons for having a snoring problem are by being overweight, being a smoker, alcohol drinking, and not getting enough regular exercise. If you have a neck line of 17 inches or bigger, and do not get enough exercise, then you are a very likely candidate for regularly snoring. When having sinus problems, colds or allergies you are more often than not going to be snoring person. It is best to deal with the cold or allergies with the right medication and then see if the snoring ends. If not, then there are several very good anti snoring remedies readily available.
