Snore StoppA Review
If you would like to try a product that you don’t have to put into your mouth, then it's definitely worth trying the Snore StoppA.
Introduction – Snore StoppA Review
Snore StoppA is a rather unique product in that it isn’t really a ‘mouthpiece’ like the products that I usually review. It’s actually like a piece of ‘medical tape’ that you place over the mouth during sleep (though it does have a small breathing hole in it).
In theory, this product is supposed to enhance your health and well-being overall by requiring you to breathe through your nose at night instead of through your mouth (which is supposed to be healthier for you due to the fact that the nose filters the air, whereas the mouth does not). It’s also supposed to stop snoring, however – so let’s take a look at it and find out if it might be a product worth taking a look at.
Snore StoppA snore patches are designed to prevent snoring, dry mouth, and a variety of other problems. On their website, they do quite a bit of talking about how breathing through the mouth during sleep is unhealthy, and advocate that using their product can keep it from happening.
All in all, the product is pretty simple – and though some of the verbiage on the website seems a bit ‘dramatic’, it also seems that the idea behind it is pretty solid.
This product would technically be classified as a ‘snoring patch’, because it was designed to adhesively stick to the mouth and face during sleep – thereby preventing ‘mouth breathing’ from occurring.

The website actually cites several sources to make their case for the dangers of mouth breathing, though I didn’t see anything to indicate that clinical trials had been conducted with this particular product.

Is this product FDA cleared?
As far as I could tell, this product has not been cleared by the FDA.
You can buy a box of 30 snore patches for $19.99, which is a pretty good price (less than $1 per patch) – though it should also be noted that you would need to continue purchasing them if you wanted to make use of them on a permanent basis. In this respect, they might be a little bit less cost-effective than some other stop snoring products – especially mouthpieces.
According to the official website, Snore StoppA was invented by a native Australian in conjunction with some medical professionals. The product has been awarded TGA Medical Approval by the Australian Government, and has garnered quite a few positive reviews for itself.

I did find some positive reviews however – so my official conclusion is that Snore StoppA is, in fact, a legitimate product that is definitely not a scam of any kind.
Of course, mandibular mouthpieces seem to go a step further than this in regard to jaw advancement – but still, the Snore StoppA seeks to accomplish this in a very non-invasive and comfortable way. It doesn’t involve putting anything inside the mouth – so kudos to the company for thinking outside of the box on this one.
What are actual customers saying?
Actual customers seem to be saying very good things about this product. I’ve seen several positive reviews and almost no negative reports – so this seems to be pretty good evidence of the fact that Snore StoppA does indeed have something to offer.
All in all, customer feedback seems to be very positive.
What you can expect
You might feel a bit of discomfort at first as you grow accustomed to sleeping with a patch on your mouth – though it shouldn’t take long to get used to this if the product is going to work for you. By the end of the second or third night, you should probably feel pretty comfortable with the product. By the time a week has gone by, you should be starting to notice the effects of a better night’s sleep during your day. You’ll probably feel more energetic, less lethargic, and more ‘alert’ than usual due to the new and improved soundness of your sleep.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
Yes, the Snore StoppA definitely stacks up against the competition by offering something that is truly easy to use. Unlike a typical stop-snoring device, using this product doesn’t involve putting anything into your mouth – so the ease of use is definitely a factor to consider.
Whether it works as well as a typical device, however, is much less clear. Some people might not have as much luck with these patches – while others might find them to be very beneficial.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The biggest difference between this product and other ‘typical’ snoring solutions is the fact that this product doesn’t require you to put anything into your mouth, while most typical solutions are mouthpieces that need to be held in the mouth during sleep to accomplish their goal.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No, the Snore StoppA can be used without a prescription or doctor involvement.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons of the Snore StoppA.
- Pretty low cost
- Is easy to use and can be used by anyone
- Seems to have some positive reviews and works for a lot of people
- Could serve as a definite alternative for people who don’t really want to try a snoring mouthpiece or can’t use one for one reason or another
- Places no stress on the jaw or the teeth
- It comes with a great warranty
- Snoring mouthpieces may be able to accomplish the same jaw advancement with greater efficiency
- In the long-run, this product could be more expensive due to recurring costs
- There isn’t a lot of specific clinical data on the product
In the end, I was pretty impressed with the Snore StoppA, though I feel that its effectiveness is probably a bit limited. It does seem to do a good job of doing what it was designed to do, but I also feel that it probably wouldn’t help everyone. If you have snoring problems and would like to try a product that you don’t have to put into your mouth, then I would definitely recommend the Snore StoppA as a first choice solution. It’s inexpensive and can be returned if you’re not satisfied with it for any reason (it has a great warranty, which is another good thing!).
If you find that it doesn’t work for you, then you could always move on to something a bit more advanced. As a beneficial side note, it will also help you to breathe through your nose more during sleep – which seems to be better for overall health and wellness anyway, so that’s a definite plus!
