As the trend toward health continues in the world today, it is beginning to reach all areas of our lives. One of the most important areas where we are seeing research and technology develop toward promoting health is where and how we sleep.
Scientists are now coming to conclusions about the negative effects of sleeping on synthetic materials, as well as the drawbacks of not getting enough deep sleep and rest every night. Luckily for all of us, there are solutions that address both of these issues. Enter the natural latex mattress.
Natural latex mattresses are a new innovation in healthy sleeping technology that can be custom designed so that you get a comfortable, restful sleep. And not only are they good for you, they are good for the environment, too.
Latex is a naturally occurring rubber material that can be used to replace conventional mattress materials. Instead of synthetic polymers that break down quickly, natural latex is durable and the rubber will last for up to three times as long as a conventional mattress, without losing its shape or firmness. The latex mattress is also naturally antibacterial so it won’t start to smell unclean or stuffy as time goes on, and the natural airflow that the mattresses have means that moisture and bacteria won’t build up, causing mould to grow.
Natural latex mattresses are good for your health in more than ways than one because they also provide superior comfort. The latex thickness can be customized to your exact preferences, and can even be adjusted from side to side if your partner has different requirements for sleeping comfortably—you can choose between soft or hard, or any variation in between.
Having a natural latex mattress means that the material reacts to your body weight and shape and provides custom support to your body so that you wake up every day feeling rested. If you often have aches and pains from your sleep, you’ll be amazed at the difference. With a natural latex mattress, you won’t wake up feeling sore because the mattress reacts to the contours of your body and provides support exactly where you need it. And if you are sleeping with a partner, you won’t be disturbed by their movements, so you can both have a deep sleep and full rest.
We all want to have a good sleep, and it’s nice to know that we can do it without causing harm to the environment around us. Natural latex is 100% organic, and unlike conventional mattresses that are made from toxic petroleum products, latex is naturally occurring and made from the sap of a rubber tree. These trees, which can live for up to 30 years, are “tapped” to allow the rubber to be collected, which it is then formed into the shape of a customized mattress. There is no residual waste and the trees can be sustainably farmed. In today’s world, consumers are taking the steps to be responsible and aware of their purchasing decisions, and natural latex mattresses are one way to put our dollars toward an industry that helps farmers and the environment.
The list of reasons for considering a natural latex mattress is long. Not only are they an investment in your health and well-being because of their unique ability to provide a comfortable, customized sleep, they are an investment in the environment as well.
