What You Need To Know About SleepRight
SleepRight is actually run by a company called Splintek, Inc. And they produce a lot of different products that are designed to help their customers sleep better. But in this review, we are going to be taking a closer look at their anti-snoring product. It’s called the SleepRight Nasal Breathe Aid, and is designed to opened up the nasal passages and prevent snoring.
We have looked into products that were similar to this before, but we’ve never gotten to take a look at this one in-particular… so naturally, we were pretty excited when we got the opportunity to do some investigating about a new stop snoring product.
Does SleepRight live up to its name, or will it leave you sorely (literally or figuratively) disappointed?
Here is what we discovered.
SleepRight: Product Classification & Instructions For Use
The SleepRight Intra-Nasal Breathe Aid is technically a nasal dilator, because the entire point behind the product is to open up your nasal passages. This, in turn, is supposed to help you breathe easier and promote better sleep through reduced snoring.
As for instructions for use, it is pretty easy to use. You simply insert the tiny device into your nostrils, and clip the little clip in the middle onto the center of your nose. You really can’t go wrong… it is pretty self-explanatory. You can use the same device for up to 15 days, then you are supposed to order a new one.
How Does The SleepRight Intra-Nasal Breathe Aid Work?
The device is said to help open the nasal passages, stop snoring, relieve sinus congestion, and open a deviated septum. Essentially, this product is intended to help promote nasal breathing and to help you stop snoring in the process.
The only problem with devices like this is that they do not really treat the main, root cause of most types of snoring… soft palate vibration. But, they do help by promoting nasal breathing and by opening up the airway.
So this product may or may not work for you, based mostly on your individual case of snoring and what is causing it.
SleepRight: Clinical Background And FDA Approval
In a video hosted on the official product website, this quote is made.
“Studies show opens nose 58% to increase airflow.”
These products are also Latex, BPA, and drug free.
As far as we can tell, this product is not FDA approved.
Can There Be Any Side Effects?
We’ve done quite a bit of research into these products and what other people think of them… and while most of the reviews are positive, there are a few negative ones floating around as well.
The majority of complaints that we heard about SleepRight Breathe Aids had to do with how they were uncomfortable and hurt the nostrils. One customer even said that they caused a sore that hurt for about a week!
This is obviously not what most people reported—but it is something to consider and to take into account.
How Much Does The SleepRight Breathe Aid Cost?
You can buy one device (a 15 day supply) for $6.99, a 30 day supply for $9.99, or a 45 day supply for $12.99 on the official product website.
And this is an upside to this product that we kind of liked. It really only costs about 50 cents a day, give or take, to use it… and even less when you buy 3 at once. This makes it a disposable product that is not just really cheap, but also flexible.
So as far as the price point is concerned, we were pretty pleased with it.
What Do We Know About The Company Behind SleepRight?
The official address for the company is recorded as follows on the official product website…
15555 W. 108th St.
Lenexa, KS 66219
You can also contact them by phone here: Toll-Free: 888.792.0865
Or by email here: firstname.lastname@example.org
As for a company history, there is actually quite a bit of information given on the official product website. Splintek, Inc. was founded in 1996, and is an ‘innovation-driven company with a clinical heritage.’
They are basically a company that owns, markets, manufactures, and distributes high-quality Rx and OTC healthcare products. Their two main brands are SleepRight and HearRight.
What Can Users Expect From SleepRight Breathe Aids?
If you use the SleepRight Breathe Aids, you might have to get used to them a little bit. Having something in your nose while you sleep can be a bit uncomfortable… so it is important not to give up after one or two nights if you have decided to give them a try.
This mild discomfort should pass pretty soon if you keep getting used to them.
See below what a few SleepRight Breathe Aid customers said about this product on Amazon.
Do SleepRight Breathe Aids Require A Doctor’s Involvement Or A Prescription?
No. you can buy and use these nasal dilators without a doctor’s involvement or a prescription. Plus, you can get them over the counter at many popular pharmacies and in many chain retail stores in Canada.
We certainly didn’t find too much fault with the SleepRight product. But it was also far from being perfect.
Our biggest complaint about it is that it just doesn’t treat the symptoms of soft palate vibration. Yes, opening up the nostrils does help to promote nasal breathing, and yes, this might help to lessen or prevent snoring in some people… but is it going to help most people?
There is no way to be certain unless everyone gives it a try… but there are a few reasons for why we prefer different products over nasal dilators.
We have tried a number of different dilator-type products over the course of our time writing reviews. And some of them are better than others. But these types of products are usually better suited to people who suffer from nasal snoring, either due to anatomical structure or allergies… or for some other reason.
But most snoring is not caused by problems like this. Most snoring is caused by soft palate vibration, and this product would simply not do much to help alleviate that.
We did like that SleepRight is available in a lot of different stores. But we don’t like that you can’t get any sort of a guarantee on it if you order it direct from the company. Shipping is not really an issue for a lot of consumers, as you can readily purchase SleepRight in many stores that a lot of communities have access to.
But would we recommend this product? That is perhaps the bottom-line-question… and our opinion is this.
Yes, we would recommend this product over some other options out there… and it would obviously be better than not trying anything.
But are there products that we like better?
There certainly are. We like MADs better, and tongue stabilization devices fall into a similar category for us. Of course, it all depends on the user… but this product, while not terrible, is probably not a first-line defense against snoring for us.
It could be used in conjunction with other stop snoring methods to make them even more effective, though. So that is something that we would be more likely to take an interest in.
The Costs To Get The SleepRight Product Shipped To Canada
You can buy this product from a lot of different retailers in Canada, both online and in-person. Shipping costs will vary by retailer.
Where Can I Buy SleepRight If I Live In Canada?
You can buy this product from a huge range of stores. You can view the official product website to find a store online or near you where you can order it from.
Highlights And Drawbacks
Here are the basic pros and cons that we discovered about these products over the course of our research…
- They are relatively inexpensive
- They can be purchased in a number of different brick and mortar stores
- They promote nasal breathing
- They have been tested at least a little bit
- They work pretty well for some users
- Some people say that they are too uncomfortable
- They are not FDA approved
- They do not work for everyone
- They do not really help to treat the causes of soft palate vibration
- If you order straight from the company, you don’t seem to get a guarantee at all
- As a general rule, we like MADs or TSDs better
SleepRight Nasal Breathe Aid
Summary: If we consider that a 30 day supply costs $9.99 plus you are likely to pay for shipping too, then as a yearly supply it works out quite expensive when comparing to some other anti-snoring products.
