Do you regularly wake up groggy? If you’re part of the 25% of people that snore, you already know that sawing logs can reduce the quality of your sleep. Not only that, it can be a huge annoyance for your partner!

If you’ve already attempted using essential oils, nasal strips and other popular home remedies, you might be wondering: what is there left to try?

In some cases, the answer is as simple as raising your head when you sleep.

Here at GhostBed, we’ve worked with many customers looking to curb their (or their partner’s) snoring with the help of an adjustable bed base. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know!

How to Stop Snoring by Elevating Your Head

Snoring can be a serious problem, keeping you from getting the sleep you need. So, does raising your head to sleep actually help or is it just an old wives' tale?

We’re here to tell you that in most cases, the answer is yes, elevating your head can help with snoring.

Here’s how it works, according to the experts at WebMD: when you sleep face up, gravity pulls your tongue and soft palate down to the back wall of your throat. This can block your airway, which results in a vibration that we know as snoring.

When you elevate your head, gravity helps to keep your tongue and soft palate from falling back and blocking your airway. The result? Less snoring.

One way to elevate your head is by using a pillow that’s specially designed to keep your airways open. You can find “anti-snore” pillows that train you to sleep on your side, as well as wedge pillows that support you from the torso up. Avoid stacking pillows—this can actually make things worse, since it’ll lead to neck strain!

How to Stop Snoring by Raising the Head Of Your Bed

Another way to reduce snoring is to use an adjustable base. With an adjustable (or power) base, you can adjust the elevation of both your feet and head into seemingly limitless configurations.

We’ve found that raising the head of your bed about 20 to 30 degrees is the sweet spot to open your airways and reduce snoring. With the GhostBed Adjustable Base, all you need to do is hit the handy preset button on your remote to get into this perfect position. Watch the video below to learn more!

Choosing the Perfect Adjustable Base Setup

When it comes to selecting the ideal adjustable bed base setup, there are many factors to consider if you are (or your partner is) a snorer. The first thing you need to do is decide what size mattress you need.

Next, you need to decide what type of mattress you want. Most modern-day mattresses will work with an adjustable, whether you love the feel of memory foam mattresses or want to try out a hybrid model.

After that, it’s time to pick your features! While you can get a basic adjustable base for a few thousand dollars, the features will vary. But trust us—you won’t find a better deal for your money than GhostBed’s luxury Adjustable Base.
