I feel that this product is worth a try for anyone who might want to avoid using a full-fledged stop snoring mouthpiece.
Introduction – Theravent Stop Snoring Device Review
My first exposure to Theravent was extremely positive. Their website looks fantastic, the product is packaged beautifully, and the marketing-work that’s been done with it is phenomenal. I was also extremely impressed with how the technology was described. Despite the fact that this product utilizes a very different approach to the common snoring problem, I found that I was able to understand it thoroughly after a brief read-through of the product description on the website – a true testament to both well-written content and a brilliant marketing team!
So kudos to Theravent for giving me a fantastic first impression!
But first-impressions don’t always cut it when it comes to stop-snoring products – so as usual, I dug a little deeper to find out exactly how effective Theravent really is.
Here’s what I found out over the course of my research when documenting Theravent review.
Theravent is an anti-snoring device that consists of an adhesive nasal strip – though unlike some similar products on the market today, this device doesn’t stick to the outside of the nostrils and expand the airway. This product, rather, was intended to cover the nostril openings altogether – which makes it very unique. It doesn’t keep you from breathing, but it does make exhalation more difficult – and it uses this mechanism to help cure snoring.
I’ll explain how in just a moment.
This product is said to be ‘advanced snore therapy’ on the official company website. It also says that it’s been clinically proven to reduce or eliminate snoring. Here are some other benefits and details that I found on the website about this product.
- It’s not a machine, a drug, a spray, a surgery, or a mouthpiece
- It’s comfortable and easy to use
- It’s ideal for travel
- It works on the first night (immediately)
- It helps to quiet snoring – which will improve the quality of sleep for bed partners and roommates
Of course, the big question is still ‘does it work?’ So let’s talk about that.
This product would probably fall under the ‘nasal strip’ category – though it actually uses EPAP technology (expiratory positive airway pressure) to get the job done – which makes it very different from most nasal strips on the market.
Not only is this device said to be clinically tested – but actual test data information is provided in this PR Newswire release. According to the data, Theravent Advanced Nightly Snore Therapy reduces snoring by 76% in successful users. You can read more about the clinical trial in this press release.
I was honestly pretty impressed with the data provided by the studies. By all accounts, this product definitely seems to deserve the right to be labeled as a ‘clinically tested’ anti snoring device.
Is this product FDA cleared?
Yes, this product is labeled, by the company, as ‘the first FDA-cleared EPAP device indicated to reduce or eliminate snoring.’

How does the product work?
This product helps to cure snoring using a very different approach – though it was very simplistically explained on the website, which made it easier for me to understand.
Basically, this device covers the nostrils – though it still allows you to breathe inward as normal. But it has small ‘vent’ type structures built into it that create pressure when you breathe outward. It basically uses your own breathing movement to build up a little bit of pressure – which is supposed to help prevent snoring much like a CPAP machine would.
Since it allows you to breathe as normal and uses your own breathing to build up pressure, the idea is that you’ll feel as if you weren’t wearing or using anything. You just experience a drastic reduction or elimination of your snoring problem as a result.
What are actual customers saying?
Actual customers seem to describe a wide range of different types of experiences with this device. Since it can be purchased on Amazon.com, I was able to look at the customer reviews recorded on that site – and there were close to as many bad reviews as there were good ones.
Some people seemed to hail this as a miracle product – while others felt like the device was suffocating them. Some said it was incredible, while others said that it simply didn’t work.
In the end, this might have to do with the individual. It seems that it’s a fantastic idea – but not necessarily one that’s going to work for everyone.
What you can expect
If this device is going to work for you, then you should be able to experience a better night’s sleep right from the beginning. With that being said, however, it might take a little bit (up to a week) to really get used to it.
The website states that if the product gets uncomfortable, you can just remove it and try a new strip the following night.
Does this brand stack up against the competition?
Yes, this product does stack up against the competition. It’s a very original idea, and uses unique EPAP technology to help cure snoring. This isn’t an approach that’s often used – but it seems like solid science and probably resulted from some very creative thinking.
Key differences between this product and ‘typical’ solutions
The main difference between this product and other typical solutions is the fact that it enables the body to use its own air pressure to help cure snoring – while other devices try to use a ‘mechanical’ approach to correct the problem themselves.
Is a prescription or doctor involvement needed?
No, you won’t need a prescription or a doctor’s involvement to buy or use Theravent.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that I discovered about Theravent over the course of my research.
- The product seems well-made and well-designed
- As far as the price goes, it’s pretty affordable
- There has been some pretty compelling research conducted on it – which is definitely a good thing
- It’s easy to use and non-invasive
- It comes with a limited 30 day no hassle money back guarantee
- It can be difficult to breathe with it on, and can be tough to get used to for some people. Some say that they feel like they’re ‘suffocating’ while wearing it
- It doesn’t seem to work for everyone
In the end, I was pretty impressed with this product. I understand that it might not work for everyone, but I really felt like it was a dynamic concept – and I also feel that it’s worth a try for anyone who might want to avoid using a full-fledged stop snoring mouthpiece. This product uses proven technology to cure snoring, but it does so without using expensive materials or an invasive machine.
If you’re in the market for a stop snoring method that’s easy to try, then Theravent might be a great choice for you. It even comes with a 30 day money back guarantee – so you can’t really go wrong, even if you decide that it’s not the product for you.
