The Physical and Mental Health Benefits of Memory Foam
September 26, 2017
It has long been contended that the quality of sleep a person gets is the quality of the mattress they sleep on. While the impact on the human body may not be something that one notices right away, it is directly connected to the quality of the bed. Over time, your mattress can become very uncomfortable and cause you a great deal of pain and discomfort as a result. Conversely, sleeping on a mattress made with memory foam can provide a number of health benefits.
Why Memory Foam?
Compared to other types of mattresses, memory foam mattresses are extremely unique because they have incorporated the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s or NASA’s technology. Just as the cockpit and other seats in the space shuttle were made using memory foam so they would conform to the astronaut’s bodies, many mattress companies have followed suit. Therefore, a mattress made with memory foam contours to the body of the person sleeping on it. This takes away the pressure on your back while sleeping.
Physical Health Benefits
The most significant reasons for purchasing a memory foam mattress is not merely the 7-zoned grooved design and the comfort it provides during sleep, but also the physical health benefits that it provides. These benefits include:
Temperature sensitive material – allows the mattress to adjust to your body heat and weight. As your body temperature rises, the mattress gets softer and thereby provides you with a better quality of sleep.
Relieves body aches, pains, and soreness – the 7-zoned grooved design of the Snuz mattress relieves the pressure on your shoulders, hips, and ankles so you can enjoy a night of uninterrupted sleep. By selectively displacing that pressure along the length of your body, it will relieve body aches, pains, and soreness
Aligns your spine properly – memory foam enables you to attain a sleeping posture that is ideal for you when you are lying down. In the long run, this can solve a lot of spinal problems. For instance, it can help prevent back soreness.
Memory foam pillows provide added benefits – when using memory foam pillows, your head is positioned at the proper elevation. That elevation enables you to have a healthy and proper breathing pattern during sleep. If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, using memory foam pillows in conjunction with a Snuz memory foam mattress may enable you to sleep without the use of your CPAP device.
Provides allergy relief – the foam used in memory foam mattresses is made from polyurethane which is an inorganic fiber. These inorganic fibers keep dust mites from making a home in your mattress fabrics by not providing them with a food source. The absence of these nasty little pests lowers the risk of triggering an allergenic reaction or asthma attack. Basically, these inorganic fibers are beneficial to your health.
