Potential Health Benefits of Natural Mattresses:
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 natural mattress can also benefit your health and the health of your family in countless ways, such as these:
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.
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.
Good for the Planet
When you are sleeping on a natural 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.
The bottom line is that a good night’s sleep is your pathway to good health. Sleeping on a natural mattress can help you to achieve this, night after night.
