Research consistently indicates that temperature is closely tied to sleep quality. Cotton and flannel sheets are infamous for trapping heat close to the skin, making it difficult to fall and remain asleep. Even if you do manage to fall asleep, overheating during the night can cause countless disruptions to your sleep, greatly reducing its quality. Performance bedding doesn’t hold the heat close to your skin. Instead, it breathes in a manner that allows body heat to escape keeping you cooler throughout the night for better sleeping conditions, much like the temperature-regulating properties of a natural latex mattress. But, how does this impressive bedding work?
The Idea Behind the Product
Former University of South Carolina women’s basketball coaches, Susan Valvius and Michelle Marciniak, fell in love with the fabric of their athletic shorts and decided they liked the material so much they wanted to have sheets made of them.These sheets, called Sheex, have all the properties that made the gym shorts so amazing. They wick moisture away from the skin, stretch and breath, and dry quickly. For women who experience night sweats, they are a blessing. Most importantly, they’re long lasting so they don’t need to be replaced often.
Performance bedding offers benefits that other sheets, even similar ones on the market, have not yet been able to match. These include temperature control, moisture control, and the promotion of cool airflow around the body while you sleep. In fact, some of these sheets claim to breathe 46 percent better than traditional sheets, allowing them to transfer body heat at rates that are two times as effective for promoting ideal conditions for sleep.
Why is this considered a health issue? Sleep, or lack thereof, has been linked to numerous health issues over the years including type 2 diabetes, immune system deficiencies, hypertension, and obesity. Better sleep improves heart rate, weight loss, energy, immunity, mood, and athletic performance. It’s important to get a good night’s sleep for the sake of your physical health as well as your performance in school, at work, and at play – even when work is play.
The cost of performance bedding has some people looking elsewhere for solutions. However, if you’re looking to improve your sleep and have sheets that keep you nearer to the ideal temperature conducive to deeper, more rejuvenating sleep, then performance bedding may be worth a try.
