Sleep Saviour is an earset used to prevent snoring. The brand suggests that their device is “The only Comfortable and Effective Snoring Solution.”

But how does Sleep Saviour work? Is it proven to be effective in research studies? Does it really make sense to use an earset to prevent nighttime snoring? And are anti-snoring devices a scam?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more, as we analyze the technology behind Sleep Saviour to give our take on whether this device is likely to be effective, or if it’s a waste of money.

We’ll feature a well-researched video investigating whether or not anti-snoring devices are a scam, and explain whether or not this device has been clinically shown to work.

How Does Sleep Saviour Work?

According to the manufacturer, Sleep Saviour works by sending sounds directly into the inner ear that stop snoring.

There is little technical documentation on the brand’s website explaining the mechanism of action beyond this generic description.

The Sleep Saviour website claims that the device uses “bone conduction technology,” however we’re unable to find any clinical trials in PubMed suggesting that this type of technology is effective for snoring relief (we can’t find any clinical trials suggesting it’s effective for anything to be honest).

The brand published a video on YouTube explaining how their device works:

Is Sleep Saviour Proven to Work?

Sleep Saviour’s website states that their device is “clinically tested and validated.”

However, at the time of publishing this article, users are required to submit their email to access the clinical study.

We find this to be a highly questionable marketing practice, because gatekeeping clinical research related to efficacy and safety is not a marketing practice with which we agree.

Consumers should be able to access clinical data to make an informed purchase decision, and to share with their healthcare provider.

We cannot find any publicly available clinical studies on Sleep Saviour published in peer-reviewed medical journals.

As we’ve stated in many Illuminate Health reviews, we recommend that consumers be extremely wary of clinical trials that are not published in peer-reviewed journals, due to potential bias involved.

We urge Sleep Saviour to publish the clinical trial freely without requiring email signup to their potential customers.

Are Anti-Snoring Devices a Scam?

A video from the CBC channel is only four minutes long and investigates the efficacy of some of the most popular anti-snoring devices:

Do Bluetooth Devices Cause Cancer?

There has been a lot written about the association between bluetooth devices near the brain and cancer.

The clinical studies we’ve come across suggest no causal effect.

A medical review published in the Bioelectromagnetics journal analyzed data from clinical trials on radiofrequency exposure from wireless phones and concluded that there was no association between such exposure and cancer risk.

A 2022 medical review reported no association between wireless devices like Bluetooth and cancer in children and adolescents, although the study authors suggested that more research is needed to conclusively state that there is no association.

We haven’t come across any clinical trials finding Bluetooth devices to be associated with increased risk of cancer.

Our Anti-Snoring Pick

Breathe Right Strips are our top anti-snoring pick because they’re cheap, non-invasive and clinically shown to be effective.

This brand sells a strip with adhesive that increases nasal airflow by widening nasal passages, even though the strip is applied externally. It’s quite a creative solution, and very convenient in our opinion.

A clinical trial published in the Rhinology journal concluded that “After using the strips there were statistically significant decreases in snoring.”

A 2019 clinical trial reported that in heavy snorers, Breathe Right strips were associated with significant improvements in both snoring and sleepiness.

Conclusion

We can’t find any evidence that Sleep Saviour is effective, because the brand fails to freely publish their clinical trial.

Further, we can’t find any studies published in peer-reviewed journals on Sleep Saviour.

The company claims to use a technology called “bone conduction technology” that we can’t find any evidence of in clinical studies.

Overall, we find this device to be a waste of money.

It’s also quite challenging to find user reviews of this brand that are not published by the brand itself, which is a red flag. We couldn’t find one single user review on YouTube or TikTok to feature in this article.

While there has been much fearmongering online about the association of Bluetooth devices like Sleep Saviour and cancer, the medical studies we came across showed no association, and no increased cancer risk with use of Bluetooth devices.
