Breathing, Swallowing, Talking

The hyoid bone is a lone bone in your throat. It’s held there by muscles with no close contact to other bones. The job of this horseshoe shaped bone is to help you swallow, breathe, and talk. It even holds your airway open even when you’re sleeping. Sometimes, certain conditions cause the muscles that hold the hyoid bone up to collapse, leading to snoring and sleep apnea. Get our hyoid bone necklace as a gift to yourself for all those snoreless nights. It also makes a great gift for sleep scientists, anatomy professors, forensic scientists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
