    11:00- What we do for better sleep; Somnifix!
    Check out our sponsor Somnifix! An amazing mouth tape to help your sleep and solve many problems that may occur because of mouth breathing!
    Use coupon code “SUPSLEEP” for 10% off!
    Reasons you should check out Somnifix:
    Mouth breathing is highly inefficient. Besides leading to dry mouth, sore throat, and nasal congestion, it can cause snores, lowered blood oxygen saturation, and worsened immunity. These have serious consequences for health, fitness, and sleep. The simple solution to all of these issues is breathing through the nose. It’s easy to be cognizant of breathing during the day, but mouth breathing during sleep is widespread because we are paralyzed for certain parts of our sleep. This paralysis, called atonia, particularly affects the muscles around the mouth and neck. A great way to ensure proper breathing is by using SomniFix Mouth Strips. They are fully hypoallergenic–we’ve done extensive biocompatibility testing to ensure that users won’t experience allergic reactions or irritated skin. Our adhesive was specially-engineered for the lips. That means no pain or difficulty removing it, and no sticky residue left behind. It also releases just the force of opening the mouth (another safety feature). We included the mesh-covered breathing vent to ensure limited mouth breathing is possible if necessary. We conducted clinical trials with our device in partnership with researchers from Harvard Medical School, and we saw that our strips are effective in reducing ‘mouth’ snores and in improving breathing efficiency. All contents of our box (box, pouches, strips, branded liner) are recyclable. Remember, the nose is for breathing and the mouth is for eating
