Nasivent Tube Plus Anti Snoring Aid Review
I wasn’t incredibly impressed with what I learned about this product over the course of my research - though I also wouldn’t go as far as to say that I wouldn’t give it a try.
Introduction – Nasivent Tube Plus Anti Snoring Aid Review
Nasivent is an interesting product in the nasal dilator category that I’ve recently heard about through some research – so naturally, I decided to look into them. Right away, I was struck by how difficult it was for me to track down an official company website for the product. It seems that the majority of the business accomplished by this company is done via Amazon.com, though I was, after a bit of searching, able to locate it.
As it turns out, this company (called Vital Health Products Ltd.) is based in the Netherlands, though they also seem to have offices in several other countries as well.
My first impression of this company’s website actually wasn’t very good. It seemed to be written in mostly broken English, and I had a difficult time following what was being said. The site is located at nasiventtube.info, so feel free to head over and check it out yourself if you want to see what I mean.
Needless to say, this didn’t sit so well with me. I mean – if a company is going to be doing business in English-speaking countries, you would think that they would try their best to make their website accessible and professional to English speakers – though I definitely wouldn’t say that this was the case with Nasivent. I felt like I was reading either a very poor translation, or web copy that was created by a writer who barely spoke any English to begin with.
Anyway, moving on from that, I was able to find out quite a bit about this product online – so here’s what I discovered over the course of my research.
Nasivent came out with a new model for this product back in 2013. This model is said to come with features that prevent slippage, that stiffen to retain the model of the nose wall, and to keep the nose open to avoid mouth breathing. It’s made of 100% medical silicon, is said to be ‘comfortable and safe for daily use’, durable, unbreakable, and capable of serving you for a lifetime.
This product is technically a nasal dilator, because it was designed to help open up the nasal passages while in use.
I was actually very surprised to find quite a bit of clinical data for this product.
Most of this data takes the form of endorsement letters from ENT doctors and specialists- though the information all seems to be legitimate. It was interesting to note that all of these letters needed to be translated so that they could be read by English readers – but surprisingly, these translations seemed to be written much better than the content for the actual website itself.
Unfortunately, the link to this clinical data no longer seems to be working. The best info we can cite at this time is on the Nasivent shop page, which simply states, “Recommended by ENT doctors.”
Is this product FDA cleared?
According to this page on the official company website this product is ‘absolutely recognized by the FDA.’ Therefore, according to this, it would seem that Nasivent is FDA approved, although this is how far the proof goes.
There are couple more sites that also say that the product is approved by the FDA for over-the-counter sale.
Laurierstraat 174, 1016 PS Amsterdam, The Netherlands
They also, however, have offices in the UK, the US, Germany, Australia, Turkey, and Asia.
How does the product work?
Attention! This product basically works by expanding the nasal passages to both increase airflow and promote nose breathing. Nasal breathing is said to be much healthier than mouth breathing, and this product is supposed to promote it by making it easier.
What are actual customers saying?
Actual customers seem to have mixed feelings about this product. I actually found that it has roughly the same number of negative reviews on Amazon.com as it does positive reviews. But then again, having said that, it also just plain had a lot of reviews in-general – so it’s definitely getting purchased and used by a lot of people.
Here is an example of a negative product review, listed on Amazon.com.
“These are four different sizes. A small size and three more ranging to very large. They hold your air passages open, but (for me) result in increased production of nasal mucus. So you’ll wake with a post-nasal-drip soar-throat. And, like me, you may wake up hacking and chocking. Pretty gross.”
But of course, not all of the reviews were negative. Here’s an example of one that I found that was quite positive.
“I have been using the original Nasivent for 2 years, and originally gave it 4 stars. I used it extensively traveling through Asia, where quarters are sometimes tight. It made a huge difference for our quality of sleep. I have been using the new model for 1 month and am giving it 5 stars. It has an improved fit and the comfort level is just that much better. The Nasivent designers did a great job. Thanks.”
What you can expect
As far as I can tell, you can expect it to take you at least a few days to get used to the Nasivent. If the product doesn’t seem to fit right or if it’s uncomfortable, then you might need to try a different size. The Nasivent definitely doesn’t work for everyone, so if you can’t get it to fit comfortably before a week or two has gone by, it might be a sign that it just isn’t the right stop-snoring product for you.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
There are actually several nasal dilators like this on the market, though they’re all a little bit different when you get down to the details. This brand does offer some competitive features, though whether or not it’ll work for you may depend mostly on the shape of your nose and on how well the product fits with it.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main different between this product and other typical solutions in this category is probably the fact that the Nasivent Plus is a soft dilator that was designed to conform to your nose’s natural shape – as opposed to other similar products on the market that are a bit more ‘rigid’ in design.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No, you won’t need a prescription or a doctor’s involvement to buy and/or use Nasivent.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered while researching the Nasivent Tube Plus Anti Snoring Aid.
- The product seems designed with comfort in mind
- It’ll last a long, long time
- It’s very affordable in the long run
- It’s got some great doctor recommendations and research data backing it up
- The company website contains strangely worded content that sounds mostly like broken English
- There were almost as many negative reviews for this product on Amazon as there were positive reviews
To be honest, I wasn’t incredibly impressed with what I learned about this product over the course of my research – though I also wouldn’t go as far as to say that I wouldn’t give it a try. Yes, there are probably other anti-snoring products that I would utilize before the Nasivent, but this product does work for some people, and for that reason you can’t write it off completely until you’ve tried it yourself.
I was a bit disappointed by the official product website – but they also have a lot of doctor recommendations, so I guess these sort of help to balance each other out.
If this product sounds like it might work for you, then you should give it a try – but be ready for the possibility that it may not solve your problems either.
