REMplenish combines upper airway exercises with the natural action of drinking.
Drinking from REMplenish provides targeted resistance to the muscles in your mouth and throat, helping to exercise your airway and keep it healthier. A healthy airway can lead to better breathing , reduced snoring & better sleep, and more energy during the day.
In a 2020 REMplenish usability study, 93% of snorers reported a reduction in snoring, and 34% said they were more awake during the day. Read the full study here.
And after two and a half months from starting use, I recorded almost no snoring episodes during a 5 hour period. I’m also experiencing less tiredness during the day. To say I am surprised about the results from using the water bottle would be an understatement.
While most often associated with sleep issues such as snoring or sleep apnea, poor airway health can contribute to a multitude of conditions including chronic fatigue, headaches, depression, anxiety, excess weight gain, behavioral issues and bed wetting in children, and many more.
Compared to our ancestors, we eat a softer food diet and don't use our muscles for chewing and swallowing as much. Our tongue and facial muscles have weakened over time, and our mouths don't develop the way they should. This can lead to vibration and collapsibility of the airway.
The tongue’s resting position can impact everything from chewing to swallowing, and even the way you look and speak. Abnormal tongue position can lead to airway health disorders in children and adults – here are just a few of the conditions that can have their cause in poor airway health:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
REMplenish helps to address airway issues and deliver upper airway exercise in 3 ways.
Tightens Up Soft Tissues.
Tighten muscles in the throat and soft palate to reduce vibration and collapsibility by increasing daily swallows by 20-50%.
Strengthens Your Tongue.
Tightens tongue muscles to reduce/prevent the tongue from falling back in the throat while sleeping. The muscle it exercises is called the genioglossus.
Gets Your Tongue Up.
Promotes keeping your tongue on the roof of the mouth through repetition and building muscles memory. This helps you to breathe through your nose day and night.
Place nozzle completely in mouth with lips touching base of nozzle. Draw in water by creating a negative pressure with your tongue. Note: Make sure you are using your tongue and not your cheeks.
Compress the nozzle against the roof of your mouth so the nozzle is fully compressed. Make sure the tip of your tongue is behind your top front teeth (see Proper Swallow). Swallow. Repeat step 1
You should feel the muscles working underneath your chin.
The first few days may be difficult but will get easier with continued use. Each person is starting at a different level of strength, so experiences may vary.
Most people see improvement after one month of device use.
Snoring is a sound produced by the vibration of the soft tissues of the upper airway during sleep.
Relaxation of the pharyngeal muscles causing the airway to decreases in size.
Tongue relaxes, falls back, and decreases airway size, resulting in a louder snore.
Soft palate relaxes and vibrates from air flow.
Plugged nostrils results in high pitched snore.
If snoring is loud and habitual it may indicate the presence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a serious medical condition where the airway collapses and breathing is stopped for a period of time that is sufficient to disrupt sleep.
Here are common indicators of Obstructive Sleep Apnea:
Excessive daytime tiredness.
Waking up with a headache or fogginess in the morning.
Waking up numerous times throughout the night.
Gasping for air while sleeping.
*We strongly recommend anybody that has suspected obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) to consult with their physician on the best course of action. If you receive improvement in tiredness or any of the OSA indicators from device use, you may be at risk of having OSA.
Myofunctional Therapy is targeted exercise of the muscles in the upper airway, face, mouth, and tongue in order to promote proper function and positioning.
Breathing through your nose filters, regulates the temperature of, and humidifies air before it reached your lungs. When you breathe through your mouth, your tongue is forced into a lowered position where your muscles are not being properly activated.
To prevent this, it is important to breathe through your nose while at rest. Mouth breathing should only be for when you are talking or exercising.
When you breathe through your nose you should keep both the front and back of your tongue lightly suctioned to the roof of your mouth with the tip of your tongue resting ~1⁄4” behind your front teeth.
Grab a glass of water and take a sip. Pay close attention to where the tip of your tongue is relative to your teeth and the glass when you swallow.
If your tongue is behind your bottom teeth, touching the glass, floating in your mouth, or pushing against your top teeth – it’s likely being done incorrectly.
Proper swallowing involves pressing the tip of your tongue lightly on the roof of your mouth (1/4 behind your front teeth) as you initiate the swallow. See graphic for visual.
The back of your tongue should raise to the roof of your mouth, propelling the food or liquid down your throat. See graphic for visual.
