A new high-tech mattress isn’t the only way to give the gift of better sleep this holiday season. If you or someone you know is one of the 37-million Americans affected by regular snoring, you need to take a look at the revolutionary Smart Nora sleep system. Unlike almost every other anti-snoring device on the market, Smart Nora is completely contact-free and doesn’t require you to change anything about the way you sleep. Snoring occurs when muscles in your neck, tongue, and throat relax, and inhalation vibrates your loosened and sagging airway walls. The ingenious Smart Nora sleep system works by gently stimulating your neck via an inflatable insert stashed underneath your pillow, preventing snoring without physically propping open your airways. The system works for almost everybody, but it also comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, just in case.
