Don't let snoring slow you down
One of the big worries for athletes competing at the Olympics this summer is ensuring they get enough sleep before their event. Whilst Olympians partying is one problem for the athletes, even worse is being paired with a snorer as your roommate in the Olympic village & as Jonathan Edwards recalls having been partnered with a snoring Steve Backley in Sydney.M
It's not only elite athletes whose performance can suffer due to a snorer however, with up to 50% of men thought to snore many women have to suffer in silence as they struggle to get a good night's sleep and are affected the next day. And it's not just the partners of snorers whose performances can suffer either as research has now linked numerous health issues with snoring.
So whilst energy bars and the latest aero wheels might help you pick up your pace you could make even bigger gains from a natural remedy called "Helps Stop Snoring". Their products, which include an oral spray and mouth wash, work through the use of a blend of natural essential oils that help tone the soft tissues at the back of the throat - snoring often occurs when these soft tissues relax and vibrate as we breathe during sleeping.
Although the company haven't got stats to show that their products will make you run faster, their products have been clinically proven to help prevent snoring in four out of five users meaning, at the very least a better night's sleep and that can only mean one thing for our energy levels and performance the next day.
