Buying a new mattress is a decision and process that should not be taken lightly, especially if you are doing it to upgrade an old, uncomfortable one. You often have a choice between natural and synthetic. Synthetic mattress may be cheaper and readily available from many retailers both online and offline, but investing in a natural mattress may be the best choice in the long run—especially if you want to improve the quality of your sleep and boost your health.
One of the most important features to know about a natural mattress is that it is non-toxic. Synthetic mattresses are manufactured in a conventional manner, which typically involves the use of harmful chemicals to make them flame-retardant, resistant to dust mites, and last longer. However, those chemicals may be toxic to your body in the long run due to their tendency to off-gas and become absorbed into your system through your skin or via inhalation. Many of these chemicals and flame retardants have been linked to cancer and other health disorders, too, such as slow brain development in children and infertility.
With a natural mattress, you do not have to worry about getting sick as you sleep or lounge in your bed. Natural dunlop latex or rubber mattresses promote good health with their ability to keep a neutral temperature, so it does not feel too hot or too cold. Some natural mattresses have organic wool to help regulate your body temperature, too. That way, you can feel cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Natural latex mattresses are made of natural Dunlop rubber from Guatamala or Sri Lanka. These are the better and safer alternative to mass-produced synthetic memory foam mattresses. Natural latex mattresses are good for people with allergies like eczema and hay fever as their natural properties repel dust mites and other possible allergens that may cause irritation. It supports your body’s weight and contours, too, so you can wake up without any lower back pain, stiff neck, and painful shoulders. Natural latex lets air circulate better to allow perspiration to dissipate quickly. That way, moisture is not retained, and the chances of mold and mildew forming are lessened.
Authentic natural latex mattresses are very durable. You can expect them to last for more than 20 years without any undue deterioration. Unlike conventional spring mattresses, a natural mattress is not noisy and will not cause any sleep disturbance to your partner, even if you tend to move a lot while asleep. Natural latex comes with anti-bacterial properties that can keep your mattress hygienic for the longest time.
