Have you wondered why you or people are snoring? The main cause of snoring is when the air cannot freely pass through your nose and throat during sleep. This effect the surrounding tissues which makes it vibrate and create the sound. The position of your tongue and the “floppy” throat and nasal tissue may cause the blockage of air in passage.
