This condition can be caused due to several reasons and being overweight is one of them. If you are a mild and occasional snorer, then it is not a problem.
But snoring, combined with extended breathing stoppages are mostly associated with cardiovascular disease risk and requires immediate medical attention.
In case you are a mild snorer then instead of trying those weird gadgets available in the market or wearing those uncomfortable masks, check out these 5 natural remedies for snoring.
- Ginger and honey tea
Ginger is the most common household item. It is a superfood that can cure almost anything – from an upset stomach, weight loss, heart problems to common cough and cold. Ginger acts as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent and increases saliva secretion, which soothes the throat and provides relief from snoring. Drinking ginger and honey tea twice a day is perfect to get rid of the problem of snoring.
- Garlic, onion, and horseradish
Having strong aromatic foods like garlic, onion and horseradish prevent drying of the nose and reduce congestion. A study also claims that these food products also decrease swelling in the tonsils and prevent sleep apnea. You can either chew the garlic/onion/horseradish before going to bed if you do not care about the smell or can even add it to your dinner.
