The Benefits of Foam Mattresses
The ideal mattress will align your spine...
Many of us simply accept the limitations of innerspring mattresses, particularly pressure points at the shoulders and hips, as a result of a mattress that is too firm. This problem is particularly important for side sleepers, as pressure points are generally accompanied by improper alignment of the spine. Pressure points indicate that your shoulders and hips are being forced upwards, which creates a bow in your spine, very often accompanied by lower back pain.
The popularity of foam mattresses comes as no surprise, they conform to the natural shape of your body, offering relief from pressure points and aligning your spine. Many people associate foam mattresses only with memory foam and are deterred by the expense of high end memory foam mattresses, such as the Tempur-Pedic, or are disappointed in the durability of lower priced memory foam mattresses. Fortunately, there is a much better solution available, a natural latex foam mattress.
A Natural Latex Mattress
The most comfortable and durable of all foam mattresses...
A natural latex mattress stands head and shoulders above all other foam mattresses. Gently and buoyantly conforming, natural latex is the most durable foam product available. Most importantly, it is the natural qualities of latex that set it apart from all other foams. Extracted from the rubber tree, natural latex has a multitude of benefits. Natural latex is antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, and resistant to mold, mildew, dust mites and bed bugs.
100% natural latex passes the strict European Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for no harmful substances, and it is also free from the off-gassing of VOCs found in memory foam. Many consumers find that memory foam mattresses sleep hot, while most 100% natural latex mattresses have covers with natural wool batting. Natural wool has two powerful benefits, it passes the 2007 fire codes without the addition of chemical fire-retardants, and it is also an excellent thermoregulator, keeping you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
