Does Snoring Reduce Recovery?

I was just curious as to whether or not snoring reduces recovery after hard exercise?

I've never seen any studies regarding this, but my guess is that depending on the severity of the snoring, it can reduce muscle recovery. However, I'm guessing that this is the case, since more serious cases of snoring are usually paired with sleep apnea which causes other health problems. I've also read that snoring can cause reduced blood oxygenation, which I believe would reduce muscle recovery, but I'm not completely sure about that.

Does anyone know of a study that shows that snoring affects exercise recovery?

Does it matter? There are so many other problems associated with snoring, you might as well assume it affects recovery too. In fact, since it interferes with sleep, that's a safe assumption.
