If you get at least seven to nine hours of sleep, then you spend more than 2,500 hours on your bed every year. Hence, it makes sense to invest in a high-quality and comfortable mattress that can help you achieve a sound and healthy sleep. An organic king size mattress may be just what you need to ensure a complete rest that can enhance your emotional, physical, and mental well-being. This type of mattress is non-toxic and guaranteed to last longer than the typical mass-produced and chemically treated mattresses.
Things That Could Be in Your Non-Organic Mattress
Your old mattress could be harboring dust mites and other allergens, and it could be off-gassing toxic substances that can cause chronic diseases. Insects and dust could be causing respiratory and skin problems. An old,sagging, non-organic mattress may be the reason for your chronic back pain, too.
Mattresses must pass certain standards to make sure that they are flame retardant, so manufacturers add many different chemicals to satisfy those requirements. One of these chemicals is PBDE (polybrominated diphenyl), which has been already banned in several states as well as in Europe and Canada. Studies found that the toxic substance gets absorbed into your body via inhalation or through your skin, and it does not go away. PBDE is one of the reasons for decreased sperm quality, reproductive and brain damage, cancer, and thyroid problems at high levels.
Qualities of a Good Organic King Size Mattress
Not every organic mattress is created equally, so you need to be careful where you buy one. A good organic mattress is made of organic and chemical-free wool that is naturally flame retardant and resistant to bacteria and mold. This type of wool keeps your body warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Mattresses with organic wool offer better loft.
You should make sure that the mattress is made of chemical-free and 100 percent organic cotton. Some of the best organic cotton fabric, and sheets comes from South Carolina mills and it is used as side layers or ticking on organic mattresses. At times, it can be found in the layers deep within the mattress. Beware of mattresses claiming to be ‘certified organic’ but is actually made of only 70 percent organic cotton, with the rest being synthetic recycled fibers. Be sure to read the labels.
High-quality organic king size mattresses are durable, especially if they are made of natural Dunlop latex or rubber from Malaysia or Guatamala. Natural rubber is durable and will provide your mattress with a service life of more than 20 years. This material is great if you have respiratory and skin problems, such as asthma and allergic rhinitis, and eczema. It can be a great option if someone sleeps beside you, too. Unlike spring mattresses, a natural latex mattress does not make any noise or cause any disturbance when you stir, so you do not have to worry about waking the person beside you.So, the less transference of motion the better.
