If you’re anything like me, you’ll struggle to sleep at the best of times, so when you’re about to drift off and your significant other starts snoring… well there’s only so much you can take…

If you feel that a sharp dig in the ribs is a little over the top then boy, have we got the solution to your problems.

Instead of snoring becoming a nightly red-eyed battle call, why not help to keep those snorts in check and give your bedroom a bit of attractive new greenery?


Far from the common suggestions of nasal strips, mouth guards, hypnotherapy and anti-snore pillows, get yourself a lovely new house plant - a Pineapple Plant to be exact!

Said to reduce snoring thanks to their night-time oxygen production, according to NASA, Pineapple Plants will improve the air quality in your bedroom throughout the night helping with both a better and quieter sleep.

They’re grown in Holland (although you can grow them yourself from the top of an old pineapple) with the plants usually taking between 21 and 24 months to grow and develop the miniature pineapple that sits on top.

Yep, through simply improving air quality with oxygen a Pineapple Plant could help the 45% of Brits who snore get a better night's rest (not to mention their partners).


But apart from tiredness, broken sleep and general fury, snoring can actually cause some more serious health issues.

It can sometimes be a sign of obstructive sleep apnoea, which occurs when a person’s airways repeatedly become partially or totally blocked for about 10 seconds throughout the night. 

People who suffer from sleep apnoea are at an increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and an irregular heart beat.

If you fancy going at your snoring with a double-pronged, pincer-movement attack (see ‘The Schlieffen Plan’) you could also give these anti-snore pillows from Silent Night a whirl. 


Currently priced at just £9.00 on Amazon, the product has got a whole host of rave reviews from many a happy customer.

According to the product description: “The pillow lets you sleep on your back without snoring. This ergonomically designed pillow gently supports and positions the head and neck to encourage better body alignment and snore-free sleep. It features a shaped foam core and has a firmness rating of 5.”

On top of all this, it's also hypo-allergenic, made in the UK and comes with a two year guarantee.

It’s got to be worth a go right!?
