While it is helpful to restore youthful muscle tonus to the tissues of your throat, and clearly beneficial to have a clear, unobstructed airway, a simple herbal product that enhances respiration is more directed at sleep apnea’s primary and root cause.
Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant and inhibits neural communication. It should be avoided before bed. Smoking diminishes lung capacity and thereby taxes the respiratory system. Being overweight further exasterbates sleep conditions and problems. But all of these things complicate the sleep apnea issue, they don’t cause the issue.
A solution to sleep apnea that directly addresses the cause of the problem allows extraneous issues to be ignored or dealt with largely as the subject prefers. Clearly, losing weight, exercising the muscles of the soft-palate, and sleeping on one’s side are beneficial.
By addressing the main issue of maintaining respiration intensity during the muscle inhibition of Stage II sleep, the sleeper can derive immediate benefit while working on improving the other mitigating issues.
It is not unusual to have a person take the Nature’s Rite Sleep Apnea Relief and report that they are still not “feeling rested.” This is true because there can be several other issues which can disturb sleep.
In fact, insomnia is quite prevalent in society. I often recommend a product that tends to help with the insomnia problem. It can be taken in conjunction with the Sleep Apnea Relief. The product is called Sleep Essentials and is available through Swanson’s Vitamins.
There are also many people who suffer from Restless Leg Syndrome and don’t realize it. They toss and turn or twitch their legs while they are in a very light level of sleep. Since they’re not quite conscious, they don’t realize the disturbance. Yet, it is enough to keep them from getting a full night of REM, Delta and Theta sleep levels.
To that end, there is Leg Relaxer by Nature’s Rite. It’s a roll-on lotion that is designed to settledown restless legs (and arms).
