How to Reduce Snoring With a Bamboo Pillow

Last updated on November 7th, 2023 at 03:43 pm

Snoring is one factor that can keep you – and anyone you share a bed with – up at night. A lack of sleep is bad for your mental and physical health, so it’s important to get it sorted. A bamboo pillow can help reduce snoring thanks to its enhanced breathability, meaning you’ll sleep soundly night after night.

What are the causes of snoring?

There are various snoring causes, whether you do it every night or only from time to time. Being overweight can cause frequent snoring, as can old age and sleeping on your back. If you go to bed dehydrated or after consuming a lot of alcohol, this might lead to some intermittent snoring too. Smokers, like those taking sedatives and other heavy sleeping medication, are likelier to snore. You’ll also recognise that having a cold or the flu leads to snoring too!

Snoring can also indicate deeper health issues, like OSA – obstructive sleep apnea. This happens when the walls of your throat get too relaxed while you’re asleep, leading to them narrowing, which interrupts your breathing. Of course, this can affect your sleep quality by keeping you up and stopping you from achieving a deeper sleep. You can wake yourself up by snoring, leading to hefty relationship problems if you’re keeping your partner up too…

The benefits of using a bamboo pillow for snoring

Bamboo pillows have many benefits – they are hypoallergenic and naturally antibacterial, thermoregulating to keep you from overheating at night, and extra supportive. The big advantage of a bamboo pillow for snoring is that they are really breathable, meaning there is enhanced airflow. The easier you can breathe as you sleep, the less likely you are to snore! The orthopaedic nature of many bamboo pillows means that your body is properly aligned, which is another way to reduce the likelihood of snoring.

How do you choose the right bamboo pillow for snoring?

When choosing the right pillow for you, it’s worth considering your sleep position and what you like in a pillow. Firmer pillows are better for snorers, giving you that support to help you breathe properly. Looking at the pillow loft (that’s how high a pillow is) is important too.

Whether you opt for a bamboo pillow or a hybrid option, both reduce snoring. Soft yet supportive and offering that all-important breathability, your bamboo pillow selection is all about which one feels most comfortable for you. At Panda, our Hybrid Bamboo Pillow takes everything we loved in our original Bamboo Pillow features but with the addition of adaptive CharcoCell Foam™ to uniquely contour your body and give you the sleep you deserve.

Tips for using a bamboo pillow to reduce snoring

For snoring solutions, bamboo pillow positioning is important. Your pillow should be properly positioned to give you best sleep posture and provide snoring relief. To optimise airflow, your pillow should rest below your head and neck but not underneath your shoulders. This will help to improve your airway alignment and get you breathing properly throughout the night.

Sleeping on your back or side (rather than your stomach) is much better for maintaining a good sleep posture. And if you find yourself wanting to switch positions during the night, move your entire body rather than just certain parts to stay properly aligned.

What other lifestyle changes can reduce snoring?

Getting yourself into a healthy bedtime routine can help alleviate snoring. Snoring can be part of a vicious cycle of struggling to drift off and stressing about it, then waking up again when you do. By promoting healthy sleep habits like an established routine and limited screen time, you’ll sleep easier and generally better.

Lifestyle modifications can help – think about snoring causes and how you can eliminate them from your life. Reducing sedative medication where possible is a good idea, as well as drinking less alcohol in the evening. Quitting smoking and losing weight will improve your overall health, as well as making you less likely to snore!
