Stuck snoring? Is it affecting the quality of your sleep—as well as the sleep of your loved ones?
To help you address the issue, SnoreFIX snoring relief spray was developed by a board certified surgeon with a patented blend of natural ingredients that help hydrate and lubricate the tissues in your airway. As a result, the oils, extracts, and vitamins it contains will “dramatically” reduce the sound of your snoring.
We’re told that all you have to do is apply 2-4 mint flavored sprays (similar to mint mouthwash) to the back of your throat before bedtime, while SnoreFIX’s spray nozzle will deliver the formula right where it’s needed. Then, the spray will help you wake up rested and energized, without any side effects, and without having to resort to surgery.
You’ve reached the point where you’re beginning to look at different over-the-counter-methods of reducing (or even eliminating) your snoring—probably because everyone who lives with you is tired of hearing you saw logs each night. But how well can you expect SnoreFIX to work? Is it a permanent solution? Are there other options? Is SnoreFIX a better value?
Let’s start answering your questions by looking at the root causes of snoring.
What Causes Snoring?
From a physiological perspective, snoring occurs because the soft tissue at the back of the throat relaxes as you sleep, which then temporarily blocks your airway. Then, as the air moves past, it can vibrate this tissue, resulting in the telltale snoring sound.
In many instances, snoring can act as a precursor to a much more serious condition known as sleep apnea. Here, individuals can stop breathing for up to a minute at a time, and prolonged exposure can lead to increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, obesity, and more. This is why it’s always important to talk with your doctor if snoring is becoming a problem.
Now, there are dozens of different factors that can make the tissues in your throat more prone to relaxation (and snoring), including aging, gender (men are more prone to snoring than women), physical attributes, being overweight, certain medications, tobacco/alcohol use, and much more.
If you’re looking to address your snoring, you’ll find that most devices are intended for either mouth (you typically breathe through your mouth) or nose (you typically breathe through your nose) snorers. However, by lubricating the tissue at the back of the throat, it seems that SnoreFIX might be a viable solution for both types of snorers.
But can you really expect its ingredients to work?
How Effective Are SnoreFIX’s Ingredients?
According to the SnoreFIX website, the spray contains the following ingredients (only active ingredients are hyperlinked):
Purified Water, Glycerin, Oat Beta Glucan, Lecithin, DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Pyridoxine NCI, Licorice Extract, Slippery Elm Extract, Prickly Ash Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, Hybrid Sunflower Oil, Polysorbate 20/80, Eucalyptus Oil, Lemon Oil, Peppermint Oil, Ben-zyl Alcohol, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium EDTA.
Just because SnoreFIX’s ingredients are part of a patented blend, does this mean it’ll work any better?
Glycerin is a humectant (it attracts moisture to you skin), and is found in thousands of different products, from moisturizers and anti-aging cream to throat sprays like SnoreFIX. Similarly, retinyl palmitate is a saturated fatty acid derived from palm oil that can also provide lubrication.
Lineolic acid may be helpful for addressing high blood pressure (a common side effect of chronic snoring), while slippery elm may help reduce sore throat.
Outside of these, based on the available clinical evidence, it doesn’t appear that any of SnoreFIX’s other ingredients will be especially useful for reducing your snoring. Will they cause any harm?
Are There Any Potential Side Effects for SnoreFIX?
According to the company, there are no known side effects related to SnoreFIX, although the spray hasn’t been studied in pregnant women. It also shouldn’t be used as a treatment for sleep apnea, and you’ll want to refrain from eating or drinking immediately after using the spray.
If you’re looking to achieve maximum results, the manufacturer states that SnoreFIX shouldn’t be used in conjunction with alcohol or tobacco.
As far as its ingredients, you probably won’t experience anything worse than mild digestive upset from using SnoreFIX, if anything at all.
Now, you might be a little confused at this point. Why? Because we just talked about how most of SnoreFIX’s ingredients probably won’t do much to reduce your snoring. On the other hand, the manufacturer claims SnoreFIX is clinically proven. What gives?
Taking a Closer Look at SnoreFIX’s Clinical Results
Here’s how SnoreFIX’s manufacturer describes their clinical study:
“A double-blind, placebo controlled clinical test was performed in a Sleep Lab and sound meters were used to register decibels of participants' snoring. The snoring decibel level for those receiving the SnoreFIX™ spray showed a statistically significant decrease post-treatment. Over 98% of SnoreFIX™ participants showed reduction in snoring noise with the use of SnoreFIX™. Over 75% of participants experienced a significant or dramatic reduction in snoring noise the first night of use.”
How “dramatic” was this reduction? Looking at the study’s results, participants who weren’t given a placebo reduced snoring noise from 80.21 decibels to 70.38 decibels—a reduction of about 12%. In real-world terms, this is about the difference between the north rim of the Grand Canyon and a soft whisper.
So, while this might be a statistically significant reduction, we’ll let you decide whether or not this might be considered “dramatic.”
Although this study featured 100 participants, a single study doesn’t make something “proven.”
How Much Does SnoreFIX Cost?
SnoreFIX is only available through the manufacturer in 3 different options (according to the company, one bottle of SnoreFIX will last 30-60 days, depending on usage):
14-Day Trial: First, you’ll pay $7.95 S&H to receive a full size bottle of SnoreFIX. After your trial ends, you’ll be billed another $29.95 and enrolled in the company’s autoship program, which will deliver a new bottle to your door once per month and charge you $29.95 plus free S&H each time.
Save $10: Your first bottle with cost you $19.95 plus $7.95 S&H. You’ll also be enrolled in SnoreFIX’s monthly autoship program and charged $19.95 plus free S&H for each delivery.
Buy 2, Get 1 Free: Two bottles of SnoreFIX for $59.90, plus free S&H.
All SnoreFIX purchases come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, less S&H. However, keep in mind that this only applies to “unused merchandise with the seal unopened.” In other words, once you open it, you own it.

Are There Other Products Like SnoreFIX? What Are Reviews Saying?
A 5-second online search for “snoring spray” will quickly reveal just how many different snoring sprays are out there, most of which are available from local drug stores and other retailers—some of which are priced 75% less than SnoreFIX, especially when you factor in the steep S&H charges. On top of this, you’ll also find lozenges, drops, and more.
Granted, none of these will contain the same proprietary formulation found in SnoreFIX. But as we outlined above, based on the available clinical evidence, these ingredients don’t appear to be meaningfully more effective.
From a satisfaction perspective, we found 4 online customer reviews for SnoreFIX on Amazon, where the snoring spray had an average 4-star rating. Two reviewers found the spray easy to use, while the other 2 seemed to have mixed results (this seems to be the consensus among many popular anti-snoring sprays). Outside of this—despite the fact that SnoreFIX claims to have been around for 10 years—we didn’t find any other online feedback at the time of our research.
Before wrapping things up, let’s talk about SnoreFIX’s creator.
Who Is Dr. Glenn Weissman?
SnoreFIX was formulated by Dr. Glenn Weissman, who owns and operates a facial plastic surgery and med spa clinic based out of Arcadia, CA. Dr. Weissman conducted his surgical training at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in NY, NY, and has specialty training from Boston University.
Today, Dr. Weissman is an active member of The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), affiliated with City of Hope Medical Center and Arcadia Methodist Hospital, and has been interviewed as a medical expert on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX News, and more.
Will SnoreFIX Actually “Fix” Your Snoring?
Although SnoreFIX was formulated by a board certified doctor and is endorsed by celebrity Lorenzo Lamas, both of which certainly provide a lot of selling power, we ultimately have to look at the spray’s ingredients to discern what kind of results it’ll deliver—which in our opinion could be very little. Even the company’s own clinical trial indicated that SnoreFIX probably won’t provide a lot of noise reduction (about 12%).
Even if SnoreFIX worked exactly like the manufacturer claims, though, the reality is that these sprays simply mask the underlying problem, which could lead to even greater health consequences in the future. For this reason alone, we’d strongly recommend speaking with your doctor before making a purchase.

NO customer service
I recently ordered this product on November 7, 2019. It arrived at my home on November 15. Unfortunately, I fractured my hip and was in surgery the day it arrived. I was in the hospital for 4 days after that, and when I came home I was focused on my recovery.
I finally was able to try the product on December 10, and used it for 5 days - it DIDN'T stop my snoring. I contacted the company on December 15 to return it, and they informed me that I was a day late for them to receive my return, as it was a 30-day return policy.
Further emails and phone calls to the company resulted in me not being able to contact a person who could help me.
Bottom line, the product DOESN'T WORK, and I have to believe that since nobody knows anything when I call them, that this product IS A SCAM! Beware!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
