A natural latex mattress is one of the best things you can do for your body to enjoy a solid night of sleep. Natural latex offers a comfortable surface area to support the body during sleep, a long life to save money over time, and the durability to make mattresses last. If you’re interested in upgrading your mattress, natural latex is one of the best ways to go.
What is Natural Rubber?
Rubber comes from trees, and so it can be grown organically. If you’re buying a pure natural latex mattress from Canada, the rubber fibers have been woven into the mattress. This removes harmful chemicals that have a good purpose, but poor execution. Since the early 1900s, mattresses have been treated with flame retardant chemicals to prevent them from catching fire during a structure blaze.
These chemicals were recently discovered to be quite harmful to the respiratory system. Since that discovery, more emphasis has been placed on finding natural and organic mattresses. Rubber is a good substitute.
Synthetic latex is man made and falls victim to the same problem that you want to avoid with flame retardant chemicals.
Any natural latex mattress topper is going to add significant comfort thanks to its layered design. Natural latex mattresses have a range of firmnesses available to you, and the material breathes too. One reason memory foam has dropped a bit in popularity is that it retains heat, making for a very warm sleep. Natural latex discourages moisture build up with good airflow. The result is a mattress that doesn’t move with your partner, and doesn’t heat up over night.
Latex is also one of the most durable substances to use for mattress making. It retains the lifespan of two regular cloth mattresses easily, and it manages to keep shape and form back into place after you leave your bed for the day.
The biggest barrier to buying a natural latex mattress is price, which is why you should consider shopping online to find the best bargain. In some cases, you can have natural latex foam cut to whatever shape and size you need, with free shipping, which would significantly decrease the costs of a new bed. Overall, you’ll save money with a natural latex bed because it will last far longer than your average mattress. Plus, more than a third of latex mattress users report a reduction in back pain associated with sleeping in a regular bed.
