WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LATEX MATTRESS?

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LATEX MATTRESS?

Latex mattresses are becoming increasingly popular worldwide. You may be wondering what a latex mattress is and what it will offer you in terms of your sleep.


WHAT IS LATEX?
Latex is a natural material that comes from the sap of the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) and possesses elasticity. It is this elasticity which allows the mattress to conform pleasantly to your body shape. Those who have slept on a latex mattress report that it feels wonderfully soft at first touch, but 'firms up' as your body settles deeper, giving the body full support. It is no surprise then that many people with musculoskeletal ailments such as back pain find relief with a latex mattress.

THE BENEFITS OF A LATEX MATTRESS
A latex mattress offers you many benefits and a high quality sleep experience, explaining its popularity.
The first of these benefits is its unique balance of soft comfort with proper support for your spine. A latex mattress is also naturally resistant to dust mites, mould and bacteria without the use of added chemicals, and this benefit appeals to many people.
Also, excellent air circulation is provided by the open-cell natural structure of latex and by pinhole patterns purposefully created during manufacturing. This allows for good breathability, resulting in a comfortable sleeping temperature. This is important in warm humid climates such as that of Singapore.
The superb body pressure distribution properties of latex mattresses are also frequently recommended by medical professionals such as chiropractors, physiotherapists and osteopaths as a way to counteract backaches and muscle-aches. An additional benefit of a latex mattress is that it does not transmit movement easily, meaning that if you sleep with a partner, you won't feel their movements on your side of the bed.

ADVANTAGES OF LATEX MATTRESS 
Now to the good stuff. Here are the top benefits and advantages people tend to report or equate with latex mattresses and a little science to back up some of those claims.

Comfort – Pain reduction and pain prevention have been reported by over 1/3 of the people who own all-latex beds. They have stated that their latex mattresses relieve pressure points and also prevent or reduce other pain they have experienced, including lower back pain. Because latex is a resilient material, it is able to support sleepers with placing excess pressure on hips and shoulders, and contours just enough to support proper alignment.

Longevity – Latex material proves highly durable. All-latex mattresses tend to outlast other types by anywhere from 2 to 7 years, on average providing comfort for 10-12 years. Though very durable, latex is also biodegradable.

No Smells – Limited to no off-gassing is a key benefit for people sensitive to smells. This is a main difference between the different types of latex, primarily linked with all-natural latex mattresses.

  • Virtually no one complains of chemical odors in all-natural latex, because there are fewer volatile chemicals to break down and release odors. If a smell is detected, it is usually a faint, slightly sweet scent that most find unoffensive. 
  • Synthetic latex and beds made using a combination of synthetic and natural latex have been reported by a little over 10-15% to off-gas or release unpleasant chemical smells.

No Disturbances – Motion isolation is a quality associated with all-latex mattresses that 10% of owners praise. Motion isolation means that when one partner rolls over or tosses and turns, movement on the other side of the bed is barely noticeable. This makes for a much more pleasant sleeping experience with fewer disturbances. This is a big advantage compared to spring mattresses and water beds which tend to transfer motion from side to side.

Customizability – Another reason people might choose latex over other types is the ease of customization offered by some retailers. You can often customize your bed from top to bottom to achieve a specific feel, or even create a bed with two different firmness levels on each sides for differing partners. Models with unglued layers also offer consumers the ability to replace upper layers when worn to further extend mattress life.

Healthy – One of the biggest “selling points” of natural latex is that it is a healthy and safe material to sleep on. Nearly all other mattress types utilize adhesives and petroleum based foams that continue to release toxic chemicals into the air as they age, contributing pollution indoors and out. Beds that are Oeko-Tex 100 standard-certified, Green Guard certified or Eco-Institut certified are tested to ensure that harmful toxins are not found in the end product.

Latex is naturally fire resistant. Other types of mattresses have many different chemicals added to them during manufacturing to increase their resistance to fire. Many of these chemicals are associated with adverse health effects including cancer, immunotoxicity and reproductive toxicity. The natural resistance to fire latex exhibits allows manufacturers to use far fewer, or no toxic flame retardants.

People are also happy with all-latex mattresses for their hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant qualities. This composition is also antibacterial, anti-fungal, and resistant to mold and mildew. Many fungi and yeasts are domestic allergens. Mattresses can be hospitable environments for these unwelcome intruders, and latex helps keep them at bay naturally.

Latex mattresses perform better in regards to pain prevention and relief, also. They consistently receive better reviews from consumers for pain relief than any other type of mattress. This is likely due to the firmness, conformability and support the mattresses provide.

If you are seeking a new mattress because of major health concerns, ask your doctor for advice. He or she will be able to tell you if a certain mattress may help your particular condition.

Environmentally Friendly – Another advantage for all-natural models is being truly eco-friendly, a significant reason for latex’s popularity. The raw materials are harvested from plantations using a method that allows the trees to live and grow while tapped. This means the trees do not have to be cut down for harvesting. Rubber trees can be tapped for as long as 30 years, while converting CO2 to breathable oxygen, purifying the air and water the whole time.

Certified-organic latex is produced in a much more sustainable way. Instead of using synthetic and artificially-produced fertilizers, organic material is used to feed the plants. Artificial and synthetic fertilizers along with the processes used to create them have devastating environmental impacts. They have been linked to biodiversity loss and contribute greatly to global greenhouse emissions. Organic methods mimic the way nature has been growing plants for hundreds of millions of years. As a result, there are no harmful environmental effects with organic methods.

Natural latex mattresses require only a handful of chemicals to create, none of which are significant sources of pollution or concern. Derived from natural substances, latex is also a biodegradable and highly durable material, two factors that reduce consumption and waste.
