Capital Idea! These Viewers Learned To “Recycle” Their Sleep

It’s fantastic when a TV host tries your product on air, then grins and says: “Wow!”. That’s what happened when The Sleep Ambassador Nancy Rothstein, MBA, asked an ABC lifestyle program, Good Morning Washington anchor Larry Smith if he wanted to try Mute.

Rothstein was in the capital city of Washington D.C. to chat about why people need to “recycle” their sleep. It’s all part of a more sustainable lifestyle. Rothstein explained why she uses the term ‘recycle’. “[It means] transform your sleep habits so your internal environment is healthy and the environment in which you sleep is conducive for a good night’s sleep.” One way to transform both your internal and external sleep environments is through the use of nasal dilator Mute. It opens your [airway] to increase airflow which may reduce the sound of snoring for your partner.

Restorative sleep helps preserve our overall well being. When sleep is compromised we waste time, energy and lower our productivity. It can even impact our appearance. Just preceding Rothstein’s interview, the hosts reported on a recent sleep study published in Royal Society Open Science, which found that people who were sleep deprived are perceived as less attractive and healthy than those who had a good night’s sleep.

But while dark undereye circles aren’t attractive, Rothstein explained that there may be more serious consequences to not getting enough sleep, “It can lead to cardiovascular disease, hypertension, depression, so many things. Our biology has not changed, our behaviors have. We are compromising our sleep and it’s catching up with us. I’m seeing it more and more.”

One thing that can impact the quality of your sleep is snoring. About 90 million Americans are affected by snoring. “Twenty-four percent of couples sleep in separate rooms because of snoring. So what do you do about it? Well, earplugs are a great solution, but they’re not really a solution because they don’t stop the snoring,” said Rothstein.

Rothstein actually sleeps with Mute every night to open her airway. Personally adjustable, it opens the nasal airway, increasing the ability to breathe better, reducing snoring and enhancing sleep. As Rothstein said, “It’s really a pretty smart device.” Both snorers and their partners report a better night’s sleep when Mute is used.*

Better Sleep: These Viewers Learn How To Nix Morning Grogginess

We all have those days when lack of sleep takes its toll. We discover during a big client meeting that our shoes don’t match. We forget to cancel the babysitter. More than anything, we just wish we could crawl back into bed! Holistic pharmacist and author Sherry Torkos recently appeared on the NBC’s San Antonio Living to discuss some common underlying causes to sleep issues. We were excited that she spent time describing how, for many people, better sleep may be possible by using Mute.

Poor sleep may be common, but it’s not something we should ignore. “I talk to patients every day [who] are not getting the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep,” Torkos commented. “Some people are just skimping by on four or five hours and let’s face it, you’re tired the next day, your memory doesn’t work well, you feel in slow motion.” She added that there are even possibly serious health effects: increased risk of heart disease, some cancers, weakened immune systems and weight gain.  

Before reaching for over-the-counter or prescription sleep aids, Torkos suggested that audiences address any underlying sleep issues. She also reviewed natural options for better sleep, such as Mute. It is estimated that about 45 percent* of normal adults snore at least occasionally. If you or your partner snores, it could be keeping you awake at night. According to Torkos, “Snoring doesn’t just affect the partner, but the person who’s snoring also has disrupted sleep.”

When snoring is exacerbated by congestion or a deviated septum, using Mute may quiet the noise so both partners get better sleep. Mute is a soft, nasal dilator that is inserted into the nose to open the airway and ease snoring. “There’s three different sizes, small, medium, and large. You can actually get trial packs,” stated Torkos. The trial packs contain all three sizes, so you can find out which size fits you best.  “It instantly opens up the airways,” said Torkos.

In one study, 75 percent** of partners reported a reduction in snoring when Mute was used. It’s a better option than elbowing your partner during the night. According to Torkos, “It can be a marriage saver for some people!”

If, as was host Claudia Garofalo, you’re excited to try Mute tonight, you’ll be happy to discover it can be found at most major pharmacies. Use our store locator to find Mute, sleep better and feel better.

Viewers Get Natural Tips To Address A “Spring Hangover”

Stress, allergies and congestion can have anyone feeling worn out this time of year, causing what one KRIV morning news host calls a “spring hangover”. While a good night’s rest may seem elusive, there are natural ways to awaken more refreshed. Holistic pharmacist and author Sherry Torkos showed Houston’s Fox Healthwatch viewers her favourite tactics for improving sleep, including Mute.  

Before you reach for an over-the-counter sleep aid, look at the underlying cause. According to Torkos, “Some of the biggest issues are stress and snoring.”

While you might soak away tension in a hot bath, or reduce stress and leg cramps by adding more magnesium to your diet, snoring may require a bit more innovation. It might be you or it might be your partner who snores, but either way Torkos suggested Mute might help. Mute is a nasal dilator which fits easily and comfortably inside the nose. “I love this. You insert this into the nostrils,” said Torkos. “It instantly opens them up and you get a rush of air. It increases airflow.”

By increasing the volume of air traveling through the nose as you sleep, Mute helps improve nasal breathing. This may reduce congestion and in turn reduce snoring, enhancing the quality of your sleep.

If you or your partner feel that “spring hangover” from lack of sleep caused by snoring or congestion, Mute might be an option. It’s easy to use, and comes in small, medium and large. Its adjustable paddles help ensure you get a custom fit. To end your “spring hangover” and get a better night’s rest, order Mute from Amazon or find it at nearby drug stores.

Morning Show Takes Viewers On A Spring Clean Of Their Medicine Cabinets

This year, in addition to spring cleaning your closets and garage, you might also want to clear out your medicine cabinet. Sacramento viewers of the Fox lifestyle show Studio 40 Live learned how to do a natural medicine cabinet makeover, thanks to Sherry Torkos, holistic pharmacist and author. Torkos included Mute in this interview (below) as a natural way to deal with allergies, congestion and snoring. By improving breathing, Mute helps both you and your partner get a better night’s rest.

Just as flinging open the windows while you’re cleaning will give you a delightful breath of fresh air, Mute uses innovative breathing technology – originally developed for athletes – to increase airflow as you breathe through your nose. It is a nasal dilator, like a stent, that comfortably opens the nasal passages.

Torkos explained that, “You insert this into the nasal passages and it instantly opens up the [airway] , increasing airflow.” This is especially helpful if you or your partner suffer from allergies and congestion, or have a deviated septum and have trouble breathing through the nose during the night.


“It’s great for snorers and their partners,” she reported. Restoring good sleep patterns is important as it may guard against risks to health and improve daytime functioning. Both snorers and their partners report a better night’s sleep when Mute is used*, waking more refreshed.


So, don’t let a stuffy nose due to springtime allergies steal your sleep. Better rest may mean you’re more alert and able to enjoy your favorite springtime activities such as hiking, fishing and biking. If you’re new to Mute, start by watching our video on how to use Mute.
