Sad to say the asonor was not a success. But I did find out a possible reason why. I am the wrong kind of snorer.
The British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea website has an online sleep test which helps people work out what kind of snorer they are - it appears I am a multifactoral snorer.
So before you invest in any kind of anti-snoring aid, I’d suggest you visit this site and take the test.
My guinea pig failed to report back, so I am none the wiser. However, I was reasonably impressed with the before and after pix the pr sent of a case study, so I guess if you can afford to try this, it might be worth a go.

BEET IT Sport Pro-Elite bar www.beet-it.com contains oats and 400mg of ‘natural dietary nitrate, the equivalent of 400ml beetroot juice.’

It’s possible the BEET IT bars would have the same effect. They certainly taste nicer than a glass of beetroot juice. (You can get them at Holland and Barret rrp £1.85 a bar).
O.R.S Hydration Tablets contain a formula of electrolytes, glucose and minerals which, when dissolved in water, help to rehydrate you if you’ve been ill or are have a hangover. (That thumping headache is a sign of dehydration.)
The tablets come in three flavours – lemon, blackcurrant and strawberry – and cost £4.99 for a tube of 12 or £6.99 for 24.
So far, I haven’t had an opportunity to try them out – but there are a few Christmas parties on the calendar so maybe …
