Sleeping on a 100 % natural latex mattress will be a new and unique experience for many people. You will find there are several benefits to consider when it comes to sleeping on 100 % natural latex, including those detailed below.
Your health is one of the most important things you must safeguard in life. You are probably doing quite a few things right, like eating healthy foods, getting plenty of exercise and avoiding toxic chemicals in your home. A 100 % natural latex mattress can also benefit your health and the health of your family in countless ways, such as these:
Provides a better night’s sleep.
You won’t lie awake all night, tossing and turning, on a natural latex mattress. The mattress provides outstanding comfort and unparalleled support, making it possible to sleep through the night.
Why does this matter?
Failure to get an adequate amount of sleep compromises so much more than your good mood the next day. In fact, if you consistently get too little restful sleep at night, it can have negative consequences to your health including:
The bottom line is that a good night’s sleep is your pathway to good health. Sleeping on a 100 % natural latex mattress can help you to achieve this, night after night.
Made with no PBDEs.
Many fire retardants contain a very harmful chemical called: polybrominated diphenyl ether. One of the terrifying things about PBDEs is that they do not break down over time. Instead, they remain active, continuously contaminating the air in your home, and risking harm to your family.
How are PBDEs harmful?
PBDEs have been linked to a wide range of health problems including ADHD in children, behavioral changes, liver damage, thyroid disruption, memory impairments, learning impairments, and more.
Anti-microbial and hypoallergenic.
Respiratory issues can impact all areas of your life. From how you perform at work to how you feel overall, the ability to breathe clean air is clearly a factor in your overall quality of life. Ridding your bedroom of microbes and allergens, often found lurking beneath the surface of innerspring and traditional coil mattresses, can go a long way toward ensuring your continued good respiratory health.
Off-gassing occurs when certain petrochemicals come into contact with the air in your home and they release harmful, unpleasant odors as a result. These are common in items that use certain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, such as paint, home furnishings, adhesives, glues, and other items – many of which can be found in most memory foam mattresses.
Off-gassing is powerfully aromatic at first. It can cause headaches as well as respiratory distress. Many people are under the mistaken impression that once it fades, the items are safe. This isn’t the case. Later in the life of this product, as it begins to break down, these chemicals will slowly seep into your home, where you and your family will breathe them in again and again.
Look for mattresses that have received the coveted OEKO TEX Standard 100 Certification, indicating that they do not contain any of more than 100 chemicals, carcinogens, heavy metals, allergy-inducing dyes, pesticides, or phthalates that could lead to a wide range of health and respiratory problems – including problems caused by off-gassing.
When you sleep on a 100 % natural latex mattress from PlushBeds, you feel the cushioned comfort of the talalay latex top and middle layers and the buoyant support of the dunlop latex core underneath. This mattress provides incredible comfort and pressure relief for your body. You can also customize the thickness and firmness of each layer of your mattress, making it the perfect solution for side, back or stomach sleepers.
When you are sleeping on a 100 % natural latex mattress, you can rest easy knowing that your good night’s sleep is not harming the planet. Not only are these mattresses made with responsible and sustainable manufacturing processes, but they are also made without ingredients that cause harm to you or the planet. Other planetary benefits to consider when it comes to 100 % natural latex include the following:
Natural Latex Mattresses are 100 % recyclable.
If you’ve visited landfills anytime this century, you’ve probably seen mountains of mattresses lining them. These mattresses can’t be recycled. Since they must be replaced once every seven years, on average, it doesn’t take long for one household to accumulate a large section of any landfill. Doing your part for the planet means reducing your waste by recycling. Since every component of a 100 % natural latex mattress is recyclable, that reduces your waste, at the end of the long life your natural latex mattress will enjoy, to zero!
Natural Latex is sustainable.
The main ingredient in latex foam is the sap from rubber trees – a highly sustainable product. Rubber trees are known for their rapid growth and long lifespans. The sap is derived without harming the trees, which can produce sap for up to 30 years before being retired. Even then, the hardwood lumber from these rubber trees can be used to create furniture that is lovely and durable. Make sure you’re using reputable latex companies who have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council to ensure that your mattresses are made responsibly.
Natural Latex Mattresses are durable.
One of the hallmarks of 100 % natural latex mattresses is their outstanding durability. PlushBeds offers a 25-year warranty on our 100 % Natural Latex, Natural Bliss and Botanical Bliss mattresses. This is because our products are built to last and the 100% natural latex used to make them will retain its natural shape and resiliency for many years to come. When compared to an average lifespan of seven years for coil mattresses, you can easily see why the durability of natural latex is a winner for the planet.
If you’ve ever slept in a waterbed, you know how disturbing it can be when your partner gets into or out of bed at night – or in the morning. It can ruin your sleep easily. The problem with excessive motion is not limited to waterbeds, however. Traditional coil mattresses are also notorious for motion-related problems throughout the night. If you have a restless partner, or more than a little restless at night yourself, you might want to consider prioritizing the purchase of a mattress that provides exceptional motion isolation, like a 100 % natural latex mattress.
Why is a motion isolating mattress important?
Your partner’s movements throughout the night can cause you to loose sleep. Whether you have a partner who tosses and turns all night long or one who makes frequent trips to the bathroom, too much motion throughout the night, from the other side of the bed, can interrupt your sleep with negative consequences to your health, productivity, disposition and overall performance the next day.
Motion isolating mattresses, like 100 % natural latex mattresses, shield you from your partner’s nocturnal motions and help to shield your partner from your nighttime activities as well. Everyone wins by getting a better night’s sleep. You can also rest easier knowing that you’re not keeping your partner awake all night if you wake up frequently during the night, have restless leg syndrome, or experience any other difficulties sleeping comfortably or soundly at night.
Perhaps the biggest benefit to enjoy when it comes to 100 % natural latex mattresses from PlushBeds is the customizability of your mattress. Our mattresses contain no glues and they are layered so that you can easily add a layer of comfort or support to one or both sides of the mattress if you need a little extra cushioning or firmness in your mattress.
Because we are not one-size-fits-all as humans, there is not one mattress that is perfect for everyone. The many health benefits offered by 100 % natural latex mattresses, though, makes them an excellent choice for a wide majority of the population today.
There are so many reasons. For one, the 100 Night Comfort Exchange program and hassle-free returns policy offered by PlushBeds for the Natural Bliss and Botanical Bliss 100% natural latex mattresses, makes them a low-risk choice for anyone looking to sleep more comfortably and peacefully, knowing your mattress is healthy to sleep on and healthy for the planet.
Now is the perfect time to make your investment in a mattress you can feel good about, today and well into the future.
