Have you ever heard of "mouth taping"? Wondering if it's the real deal? Does it actually work?
As a Body Nerd Show listener, you might remember previous episodes I’ve done on breathing, including episode 140 with renowned breathing expert Patrick McKeown.
Now, as much as I love sharing only what I've personally tried and tested, let's give credit to my husband for this one. His venture into mouth taping gave me a first-hand account of how it can decrease snoring and improve energy throughout the day.
So, here's the big question: Does science back this up? Should we all be taping our mouth shut at night? Well, if you’ve been feeling out of breath, snore like a lumberjack, and feel tired even after multiple cups of coffee - you might want to consider it.
Of course, this isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. Talk to your doctor first - but if you're looking for a non-invasive approach to optimize your breathing and overall well-being, mouth taping might just be the thing.
