My Snoring Solution Overview
This product was invented by Stephen Matthews. On the company website he tells us how he almost died from Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
He was unable to get an appointment to evaluate his condition. He tore off a strip of bath towel and tied it around his head to go to sleep. This was to keep his mouth closed while he slept. He found this worked and My Snoring Solution was the result.
My Snoring Solution is an anti-snoring jaw supporter. It is made from a material that is machine washable. The device is placed under the chin and secures at the top of the head. There are holes cut out for your ears. The product aims to keep your mouth closed while you sleep and hence eliminate snoring.
The product comes in three sizes based on weight. They are:
• Small: up to 120 lbs (54 kg)
• Medium: 120 lbs (54 kg) to 250lbs (113 kg)
• Large: over 250 lbs (113 kg)
Does it really work?
This device is aimed at stopping snoring. Let’s look at the main cause of snoring and see if it may work.
When you sleep, all your muscles relax. This includes your tongue. When the tongue relaxes it slides towards the throat. Your soft palate and tissues at the back of your mouth also collapse towards the throat. The muscles in the throat also relax.
This means that the soft tissues are naturally looser and closer to the soft palate and uvula. The uvula is that little bit that hangs down in the middle of your throat at the back of the mouth. As air pushes through these tissues they vibrate. This results in the snoring sound that we make.
My Snoring Solution holds the jaw upward. This helps open the airway and may reduce or prevents soft tissue vibration. If your airway is clear your breathing improves. This may give you a better quality of sleep.
The company details a study of 10 patients using this device. This shows that 6 out of 10 patients snored less using this device. Except for one patient, the remainder still snored. It also showed that some patients have less instances of sleep apnea.

Are there any side effects?
There aren’t any major side effects reported for this product. However, some users may experience tightness around the jaws initially for couple of days.
Also, for those who primarily breath via mouth during sleep, it may take more time to get used to this strap.
My Snoring Solution has been clinically tested at Kochi Hospital in Japan where the focus was on its effectiveness in improving obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.
There was also a review conducted by AMR (American Medical Review) with CBS’s Morley Safer.
They found this product to be effective in relieving symptoms of:
✓ Limb jerking, punching, and kicking while sleeping
✓ Waking up tired and thirsty
✓ Memory problems and difficulty concentrating
✓ Heartburn and acid reflux
✓ Waking up to urinate through the night
✓ Low motivation
✓ Loss of motor skills
Of the chinstraps we’ve tried out, this is our favorite to date in terms of comfort, durability, and overall functionality. I think it could be an excellent solution if you often find you snore when sleeping with your mouth open or drool.
Based on the various My Snoring Solution reviews online given by satisfied customers, we can safely say that this is a genuine product.
My Snoring Solution offers a very generous trial period. Considering you should have a pretty good idea of how well anti-snoring chin straps will work after the first night, I think 90 days is more than enough time to judge a product.
