Juice all the ingredients and there you have your anti-snoring juice! This drink will help you sleep better and your partner will sure be more than happy.
The ingredients remain the same but variations of the following description appear on many health focused web sites & blogs.
"Use the power of fruits and veggies to make a nice and fresh juice. Drink it before you go to bed, and both you and the person next to you will sleep well.
Do not drink alcohol and avoid eating fatty, processed foods, and dairy products for dinner if snoring bothers you and everyone around you. Juice fresh fruits and veggies for a better sleep. Always use organic products."
The Reality - Our Review & Opinion
We've been unable to track down the source of this juice recipe, but the first instance we can find of it appearing on the Internet was on a health blog in December 2014 (link).
The claim is that vitamin C in the lemon will help you clear your nostrils, the ginger relieves the pain and pressure of your nose and the apples with carrots help us sleep better. Other web sites claim it cleanses the lungs and throat. It's commonly suggested that 5 nights of continuous use should be sufficient to see a reduction in snoring.
Nights 1 to 3 we were also testing a nasal dilator. Night 4 was just with the juice and the final night we stopped tracking after initial discomfort was experienced when also testing a mandibular device.
Did it help with snoring? - Despite the somewhat varied results reported by Snorelab, yes it appeared to help a little. Our perception was that the airways felt a little clearer making breathing easier. However, it's also worth notng that both carrots & ginger are diuretic foods so you may find you have to get up to go for a wee during the night.
If it doesn't stop the snoring, you still get the benefit of drinking a healthy juice every day, so it's a positive either way.
