This smart anti-snoring device is sleep doctor approved — and it's on sale

Snoring can be an incredibly disrupting habit, for both you and your partner. If you're a snorer and know it, odds are high that you've at least casually glanced at products on the market to help you stop. But, given how many are out there, it can be hard to know what's actually worth your time and money. Well, there's an anti-snore pillow called Smart Nora that's getting rave reviews — including from doctors — and it's currently on sale.

Smart Nora's small, noninvasive tools work with you to help tackle snoring.

There are a few different components to Smart Nora. There's the Pebble, which rests on your bedside table or mattress and detects snoring, a padded pillow insert that goes under your pillow and a silent pump that inflates and deflates the padded insert to help adjust your positioning while you sleep. When the Smart Nora detects that you're snoring, it inflates the insert to help raise your head.

OK, but...why? "A change in position is very helpful for the average snorer," W. Christopher Winter, M.D., a neurologist and sleep medicine physician with Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine and the author of The Sleep Solution, tells Yahoo Life. That may mean placing an extra pillow under your head or investing in a device like Smart Nora that helps adjust your pillow to meet your snoring needs. Ultimately, "elevation helps keep the airway [of people who snore] in a better position," Winter says.

Winter is a fan of Nora, and points out that it's cheaper than adjustable beds that will also raise or lower the positioning of your head while you sleep. "This works fairly well and it's at a relatively lower price point than investing in a completely new adjustable bed," Winter says.

Another perk of Sleep Nora, per Winter: It does the work for you. Meaning, you don't have to wake up to adjust your pillow at night — Sleep Nora inflates or deflates it, while you continue to rest comfortably. "You don't have to do anything," Winter points out.

Worth noting: Sleep Nora has a 30-night money-back guarantee, and the company says it usually takes about seven days to see a difference in your snoring.

Winter isn't the only fan of Sleep Nora: Its website is packed with reviews and video testimonials from people who say this handy device helped shut down their snoring.

"I would often wake up tired, which affected the rest of my day," said a fve-star fan. "After receiving my Smart Nora, I immediately started having a better night's sleep. Smart Nora would detect my pre-snoring sounds and gently inflate the air bladder slipped inside of my pillow case beneath the pillow. The gentle lifting raised my head to a position where I would stop snoring. Smart Nora would then gently deflate and lower my head. At first, I noticed every time that Smart Nora raised my head… I couldn’t possibly be snoring that much. But my wife assured me I was. After using Smart Nora, my snoring was significantly reduced and I was waking up more refreshed."

A fellow happy customer shared this testimonial: "This device works to help stop snoring. I don’t even think about it anymore. My wife says its a game-changer. I take it on trips too."

Plenty of reviewers say it helped their partners get a better night's sleep as well, with one joking, "happy wife, happy life."

Ready to stop snoring the natural way? Consider investing in Smart Nora. It could make a big difference in your night — and day.

This handy device automatically adjusts your pillow when it detects snoring — to help you stop, and get a better night's rest.
