A good night’s sleep is one of the most important things in a human’s life. That’s probably not news to you — in fact, now more than ever, studies are coming out proving the importance of sleep. Whether you’re a pro athlete, a weekend warrior, a 9-5er, or an up-all-nighter… you need your uninterrupted hours. Here’s how we can help.
As you know, Intake opens your nose. It’s a pretty simple (pretty incredible) little device. But WHY should you be wearing it when you sleep?
If you snore
If you wake up wtih a dry mouth
If you (or your Dr.) notices your teeth are suffering
If you wake up tired
Everyone snores every now and then, but if it’s chronic it can cause health issues. Chronic snoring increases the risk of heart attack, stroke and other health problems. If you snore it’s important to find the best solution for you (and your partner). For some, snoring is caused by an issue in the throat, for others, opening the nose and closing the mouth is the best solution, and that’s what we do best. Try Intake to comfortably open your nose. We already have hundreds of users sharing with us that “intake has saved their marriage”, “they stopped snoring right away” and “they have never slept better. If you find that you need extra help keeping your mouth closed you can try a mouth tape, chin strap, or a mouth guard. Need suggestions? Reach out to us!
If you’re waking up with a dry mouth it’s likely because your mouth was open while you were asleep. There’s a couple reasons why this might be happening, so it’s important to talk to your Dr. about why, and then seek a solution that works best for you. It could be a sign of sleep apnea, xerostomia, mouth breathing, and many more health concerns. Mouth breathing keeps your mouth dry, which keeps your saliva from cleaning your mouth, killing bacteria, and causes gum disease, cavities, anxiety, stress, and depression. We know that sounds like a lot, but that’s only half of the issues mouth breathing causes. Your mouth works while you sleep, so exposing it to air keeps it from being able to do its job. Bottom line — you need to be breathing through your nose!
There are a lot of reasons you might be mouth breathing while you sleep. If you’re a chronic mouth breather, your tooth and gum health are at risk. As we mentioned above, your saliva cleans your mouth while you sleep, so if you’re mouth breathing at night, your saliva can’t do its job. This leads to bad breath, a build up of bacteria, gum disease, teeth yellowing, tooth decay, and tooth misalignment.
Waking Up Tired
You might not fully relate to the issues above. Not everyone snores, has dry mouth, or has dental concerns due to their breathing habits. But studies show that 50-70 million Americans have chronic sleep disorders. If this sounds familiar we have a 30 day/night guarantee because we genuinely want you to experience better, clearer, and more efficient nose breathing. Breathing through your nose helps you get more oxygen to your blood, brain and muscles. It enters your body into what’s called a parasympathetic state (it’s your body’s rest and digest mode… and YES it does matter)! Nose breathing filters, warms, and humidifies the air you breathe, relieves stress, relaxes your body, produces nitric oxide… and so much more.
