 New Ring Promises to Make Snoring History

A ring has been invented by Michael Carter-Smith, who claims that it targets pressure points on one's finger and cuts snoring in 85 percent of people.

Michael Carter-Smith was a saxophonist in the 1960s with rock band Amen Corner. The Good Night ring, which costs 30 pounds, relies on the ancient Chinese acupressure practice that targets pressure points on the body for medicinal gain, the Daily Express reported.

Two bumps on the inside of the ring press on pressure points at the base of one's little finger, which then open up nasal passageways and makes it easier for those wearing the ring to breathe through their nose.

An independent study that was conducted by research firm Aspen Clinical tested 20 people suffering from snoring and how the ring benefited them.

They found that 17 men, who wore the ring on their little finger, found that they snoring had reduced, and were less loud.
