| Every night, after my wife and I say good night, I reach for the drawer of my bedside table.
Relaxing my lips my keeping them closed, I place a strip of mouth tape over my lips before I turn off the lights.

That’s what I thought at first, too, but the health benefits of nose breathing are undeniable.
I think mouth taping is likely to be the next big thing in health, as people learn the huge benefits of nose breathing.

Not only does it reduce the quality of your sleep, but it disrupts the balance of your oral microbiome and makes you more prone to tooth decay.
In fact, I consider mouth breathing the number one cause of cavities—even ahead of poor diet or bad dental hygiene.
Mouth tape is a tool that everyone should have in their medicine cabinet—or night stand, if you’re like me …
“I noticed my sleep was getting deeper and I was indeed waking up with more energy. I also noticed that my throat was less parched and I suddenly didn’t have to get up five times a night to pee anymore.
