The root cause
Snoring is almost always caused by muscular weakness in the neck and throat. The tissue slackens and blocks the airway during sleep.
This can result in more serious symptoms such as chronic daytime fatigue, general performance losses and, in the long term, even stroke or heart attack.
Not only does this disturb your partner while you sleep, it can also become a health problem for yourself if snoring causes breathing stops (Apnea).
