How & Why to Get a Truly Natural Mattress for a Good Sleep

Posted by TheOrganicMattressStore on July 19th, 2016

An authentic natural mattress may be the most crucial investment you will ever make for your home, especially if you are looking to improve the quality of your sleep and your health. Most conventional mattresses are manufactured with harmful chemicals and other toxic substances that could off-gas and affect your health. Fire retardants, for instance, are found in many conventional mattresses, and they are known to cause cancer, asthma, and cognitive problems. Formaldehyde is another toxic chemical that is found in common foam mattresses. The effects of these chemicals could compromise the brain development of babies and young children, and affect the immune system of both kids and adults.

The average person should get about eight hours of sleep every day. Hence, you could say that a person sleeps for one-third of his life. Lack of sleep can cause health problems like obesity, and it can make you feel tired and irritable. Your mattress can affect the quality of your sleep, and if you want to be comfortable without tossing and turning all night, then it is time to invest in a truly natural mattress for a good sleep.

You can shop for natural mattresses online. When shopping for a natural mattress, make sure that it is from a Green America certified business and that the store is a member of the Organic Trade Association.  Some of the best natural mattresses are made of natural Dunlop rubber or latex from Malaysia or Sri Lanka. Natural latex promotes good health by maintaining a neutral temperature. Hence, it does not run too hot or too cold. This mattress is recommended for individuals who have respiratory problems and skin allergies, since it repels dust mites and prevents mold and mildew growth. It promotes good air circulation to let body perspiration dissipate quickly from it, thus, preventing the buildup of moisture.

A natural mattress lets you sleep comfortably by supporting your body's contours. Natural latex follows your body's shape to backaches, stiff neck, and shoulder pain. This way, you can wake up feeling refreshed, without any sore spots. The mattress quickly recovers its shape, too, so you do not have to worry about it being deformed, even with constant use. Some manufacturers allow you to customize the firmness of a natural mattress, so you can sleep comfortably in any position that you want.

Natural mattresses are very durable. In fact, they are expected to last more than two decades without undue deterioration. They can be a good sleep surface if someone sleeps beside you. This is because they avoid transference of motion, which occurs every time you or your sleeping partner moves. With a natural latex mattress, you do not have to wake up each time the person beside you moves.
