A latex mattress has many benefits that impact everyone who sleeps on one of these mattresses. However, there are some benefits that are more vital to certain people who use latex mattresses than others. The following people are among those who benefit most from sleeping on a latex mattress.

People With Allergies to Synthetic Materials

The fact that PlushBeds’ latex mattresses are all-natural (Botanical Bliss and Natural Bliss models) means there are no synthetic materials in the mattresses. PlushBeds, however, takes things to the next level by using natural, sustainable manufacturing methods, in addition to using natural components such as Joma wool, organic cotton, and other quality materials in the making of our mattresses.

Additionally, PlushBeds’ latex mattresses are:

The bottom line is that they have a lot to offer allergy sufferers. PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattresses are GreenGuard Gold certified, meaning they are safe for use with the most vulnerable members of the population, such as children and the elderly.

People Who Suffer From Chronic Pain Syndrome or Injuries

People who spend a lot of their lives with aches and pain often benefit a great deal by making the switch to a natural latex mattress, considered the best mattress for aches and pains. The human body uses the time during sleep as an opportunity to make many internal repairs. Those repairs simply cannot happen in people who are sleep-deprived due to pain.

For many people, though, the pain prevents them from getting the sleep they so desperately need. It’s a vicious cycle. A latex mattress, though, can help by providing pressure-point relief, which allows people to find comfortable positions for falling and staying asleep. More importantly, the firm support of these mattresses prevents you from waking frequently through the night because your back isn’t getting the support it needs.

You get a good night’s sleep. Your body begins its internal repair process. You find a little bit of relief from the pain that’s plaguing you.

People With Very Specific Firmness Requirements

Some people are simply selective. If you have specific needs for firmness in order to get to sleep at night, then it’s imperative to find a mattress that meets those needs. PlushBeds’ latex mattresses are highly customizable, giving them the status of the best firm mattress. This allows them to meet the needs of a wide range of the population.

It’s even possible, with some latex mattress manufacturers, to exchange layers for added support or comfortable cushioning to one side of the mattress, without changing the level of firmness to the other side of the mattress. With PlushBeds, you get a solid Dunlop core for the firm foundation, which provides steady support throughout the night (for the life of your mattress), along with the Talalay comfort layer that provides pressure relief for joints, and cushioning comfort.

Chances are, if you look hard enough, you’ll discover that you stand to benefit a great deal by investing in the comfort and support that only latex mattresses deliver. After all, a mattress is an investment in good sleep. Do you fit the profile of a latex mattress owner?

People Who Need Pain Relief

The gentle cushioning, pressure relief, firmness, and buoyant support of a latex foam mattress are particularly beneficial if you're struggling with joint and back pain. It offers many advantages. It also provides you with a good night's sleep.

High-quality latex foam cradles your heavier body parts softly, like your hips and shoulders, because of its firmness. It has light contouring that offers pressure relief near your lower back and joints, while its natural elasticity maintains the natural alignment of your spine by supporting your lighter areas gently like your back and neck. It helps with pain as well.

People Who Want Pressure Point Relief

Latex beds not only offer decent firmness and help with pain, they also can decrease peak body pressure when you compare them to polyurethane mattresses across various sleep postures. A greater proportion of the body's low-pressure regions was seen with latex mattresses. Latex's high damping properties limit body motion transfer to neighboring regions, and offer pressure-point relief.

People Who Like a Buoyancy Sleep Experience

Latex beds offer a lot of buoyancy, which is one of its many advantages. The fact there is a little bounce makes sense when you take into consideration these organic mattresses are constructed from rubber tree's sap. This means you'll never feel like you're sinking into the bed, which is ideal for a good night's sleep.

Even more important, while there is a level of firmness, this buoyancy sensation remains throughout the mattress's lifespan. In fact, a good quality latex mattress can last up to 25 years, meaning you'll be enjoying the comfort and support for many years with no sagging or indentations.

People Who Want Natural Spine Alignment

Another one of latex's advantages is the natural spinal alignment. This can be a great reason for you to buy this type of mattress. Your hips and shoulders are your body's heaviest parts, so they're going to sink into latex; however, your lighter areas will be supported greatly, so your spine will align more naturally. It has the capability of supporting your spine's natural curvature, therefore it will keep pain at bay. If all your back pressure is distributed in this manner, how it should be, then your blood circulation is going to improve.

People Who Want a Hypoallergenic Mattress

If you're struggling with allergies, you'll want a hypoallergenic mattress. If you're not continually cleaning your mattress, microorganisms can easily gather up on top of it, such as:

  • Fungi
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses

This can cause mildew, mold, and dust mites, resulting in bedroom allergies, and an unsafe sleep atmosphere. But, latex is eco-friendly and naturally antimicrobial, which means it repels harmful microorganisms. This makes latex an outstanding selection for individuals with year-round allergies, or for those people who don't have a whole lot of time to sanitize their mattress.

People Who Want a Low-Maintenance Mattress

Latex beds are man-made, and they're fairly low maintenance when you compare them to things like:

  • Polyurethane foam
  • Organic cotton
  • Synthetic latex mattress

You don't need to flip your mattress as frequently, if at all, as you would with another type of mattress. And, the firmness helps it remain comfortable where you first place it for a few months. It's still a good idea to rotate your latex mattress at least every six months to prevent a lot of wear in the same spots.

People Who Want a Mattress Free of High-VOC Toxic Chemicals

If you're worried about your child's health, a latex mattress free of VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, is what you want. A natural eco-friendly latex mattress eliminates the VOCs from your sleep atmosphere, and this benefit is especially essential when you have growing children. When you're looking for the ideal twin-sized mattress or crib for your child, a natural latex mattress will offer them a non-toxic, safe mattress to rest their little heads on.

People Who Want an Eco-Friendly Mattress

Natural latex is refined from the sap of an hevea brasiliensis rubber tree. If you're health conscious, latex is for you. The processing of organic latex mattresses encourages the growth of trees, and is very sustainable. Natural latex is also biodegradable, which ensures it doesn't sit for years in a landfill, thereby making it an eco-friendly choice.

While latex harvesting is a sustainable method, organic latex mattresses aren't always processed responsibly. Certain manufacturers use toxic chemicals that can be harmful to our health and the environment. OEKO-TEX Standard 100, GreenGuard Gold, GOLS, and eco-INSTITUT certification guarantee the mattress is made of natural materials, and is safe for you to use.

People Who Want a Non-Toxic Fire Barrier

Many foam mattresses are constructed with formaldehyde glues, petroleum-based materials, and toxic fire barrier chemicals. Latex mattresses provide a truly non-toxic, natural fire retardant barrier, and clean bedding option that doesn’t just last longer than synthetic foams, but also is way more comfortable.

People Who Want Zero Motion Transfer from Their Partner

Individuals who might have little problems falling asleep may find that constant movement of their partner who tosses and turns all night keeps them up, or wakes them up during the night. This not only impacts their quantity of sleep, it can also impact their quality of sleep, too. Sleep deprivation can cause huge health issues that if you leave unchecked, could substantially affect your quality of life, particularly over long time periods.

With latex mattresses, the reason there's no motion transfer, or movement, is that the mattress core is very dense. The materials in these types of mattresses absorb the weight of your body, and conform to your shape.

People Who Want a Durable, Long Lasting Mattress

Natural latex mattresses help a lot with long-term comfort. They have about a 12- to 20-year lifespan, which is substantially longer than other types of mattresses. The natural rubber's resiliency is frequently credited for its longevity. A latex mattress will bounce back effortlessly, once you remove the pressure, and it maintains its initial shape over many years of use.

People Who Want Sustainable Farming and Manufacturing

PlushBeds latex mattresses use raw materials that are sourced only from farmers sharing the same principles. PlushBeds ensures all the materials are harvested in a worker-friendly, ethical, and sustainable way. We personally meet with our suppliers regularly worldwide to ensure they keep meeting our exceptional standards. Our supply standards mean you can really feel great about owning a PlushBeds latex mattress.

We use renewable resources that are acquired sustainably in each product we make. We have a comprehensive list of certifications, with a wide range of organic and eco-friendly material awards under our belt. Along with GOTS and GOLS, our products are GreenGuard Gold certified, and eco-INSTITUT certified. And, this is just to start. Each one of our certifications represents a tiny fraction of our unwavering dedication and commitment to ensuring you sleep peacefully and safely each night.

People Who Want a Breathable Mattress to Sleep Cool

Latex's natural open cell structure helps to enhance the airflow, which makes it extremely breathable. A latex mattress is also filled with tiny pinholes throughout, which creates even more ways heat and air can escape. Enhanced airflow means a more comfortable, cooler sleep.

People Who Want to Customize Their Mattress

Purchasing a latex mattress is an extremely personal choice. Latex mattresses are ideal for individuals who like customization. Perhaps they want to be able to choose from different types of latex, such as from Dunlop or Talalay. Or, maybe it's how firm it is. There is not one mattress thickness, firmness, and support that is ideal for all people to help with comfort and pain. So, it's essential you can customize your mattress, so it's ideal for your particular sleep pattern and body type.

The great thing about PlushBeds latex mattresses is they're customized, and handcrafted just for you. Not only are these types of mattresses the most comfortable and healthiest mattresses you can purchase, but they also provide you with an endless range of customization choices, making them an ideal fit for your requirements.

People Who Want Comfort Plus Support in Their Mattress

Comfort is a huge benefit of a latex mattress. Latex mattresses are very comfortable, which is one of the main reasons they're so popular. Once you take the pressure off them, they're springy, and bounce right back. However, they also contour to your body. Latex mattresses are also perfect for people who tend to move a lot during the night because of their responsiveness. Unlike memory foam, a latex mattress doesn't take long to reshape to your body after you move, either.

Everyone Can Benefit from a PlushBeds Latex Mattress

There are many reasons why almost everyone benefits from a latex mattress. Latex is a durable type of material, contributing to its tremendous longevity. When it's used in a mattress, it provides a great deal of support when you sleep on it.

A latex mattress helps reduce pain in areas where you'd typically experience it, and helps you feel a bit more refreshed. Supportive mattresses help with pain, allow for pressure relief when you're sleeping on your stomach, side, or back, and keep your spine aligned properly.
