Snore Fix: "Does It Work?"

Almost half of normal adults snore at least occasionally and one-quarter are habitual snorers. More than 300 devices are registered in the U.S. Patent Office, claiming to cure snoring. And tonight, we add one more to the pack. It's called "Snore Fix". We had this stuff in the office for more than a month... and finally found someone brave enough to help us answer the question: "Does It Work?"

Three sprays of Snore Fix to the back of the throat and snore no more. The makers say 97 percent of its clinical users reported reduced or eliminated snoring. Andrew Trube says, if there's even a chance it'll work, he'll try it.

We gave Andrew the bottle of Snore Fix and a video camera capable of taping him in the dark. The first night, he taped himself without the aid of Snore Fix. He didn't let us down. Andrew was sawing some serious logs! The next two nights Andrew gave Snore Fix a chance. He wasn't real fond of the taste, but gave it his best shot... 3 of them to be exact.

We popped in the "after Snore Fix tapes" and it became very clear, very soon... Snore Fix did not work for him. "I mean obviously it doesn't work," Andrew said. "I'm learning right now it doesn't." "We weren't expecting it to stop your snoring, but do you see any improvement at all?" we asked. "Not really," Andrew said. "I have no cold. No allergies. When I do have a cold or allergies, it's even worse, but right now I haven't had a cold or anything for quite a while now."

So does it work? After giving it a shot for 2 nights in a row, Andrew says there's no need to sleep on it again. We give Snore Fix... A "no".

We had some fun with it, but remember, snoring means obstructed breathing, and obstruction can be serious. If you know you snore, and you're lethargic and just don't have the same energy you used to have during the day, you probably should see a doctor. For mild or occasional snoring here are some ideas you might try. Develop better muscle tone and consider losing weight. Avoid sleeping pills, and antihistamines before bedtime. Avoid alcohol and heavy meals for 3 or 4 hours before going to bed. And sleep on your side rather than your back.
