What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
Natural latex is derived from the sap of rubber trees which is harvested and collected by tapping the trunks. The sap is mixed with other organic compounds to form a gel-like material which is then processed using several varying methods to produce the latex used to make mattresses. Natural latex is a renewable and sustainable material free of contaminants or synthetic ingredients. Not only does it take less energy to produce a natural latex mattress, they tend to last longer than other types of mattresses and safeguard against health issues associated with synthetic materials. Natural latex mattresses tend to offer a firmer support that allows you to feel more relaxed and refreshed after a full night’s sleep. Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties repel dust mites and germs. Additionally, natural latex allows for better airflow and a cooler sleeping surface. You can purchase a latex mattress from most major retailers. Unfortunately, most of those mattresses have not been certified as natural.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
Before purchasing your natural latex mattress you should think about several things. Number one - the targeted support and targeted pressure relief of the mattress. Targeted support are the areas or zones where you will receive the most support from the mattress. Mattresses vary on the number of targeted support zones and where that targeted support is applied. Believe it or not the more expensive the mattress does not mean it has the most targeted support zones. If you look closely at some of the major mattress brands like Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, and Tempurpedic, you will learn that their products don’t have any targeted support zones. Furthermore, the prices for their mattresses is between $1500-$7000. On the other hand, Brentwood Home offers natural latex mattresses with five targeted support zones and a price between $795-$1795. When you go shopping for a latex mattress you should also keep in mind targeted pressure relief. Targeted pressure relief zones are made to relieve the stress on the most pressured areas of the body. Still, the higher prices are not guaranteeing that your mattress will have more pressure relief zones. None of the major mattress brands on the market that we reviewed, including Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, or Tempurpedic have latex mattresses with targeted pressure relief zones. Brentwood Home are offering latex mattresses that have up to three specifically targeted zones. To get the best night’s sleep, your mattress should have both targeted support and targeted pressure relief zones. At the same time, your body will receive the support and relief. This will be the most beneficial for people with injuries, pre-existing conditions, and for senior citizens.
Non-Toxic Materials and Chemical Free Fire Retardants
Your health and well-being are extremely important, and many mattresses do not meet basic requirements for the biological health of their users. Materials that are commonly used in many mattresses today can oftentimes be harmful. Synthetic materials are also problematic when it comes to bacteria; they tend to breed more and do not effectively prevent against growth. To check for the nontoxic nature of a mattress, look for certification and whether it has been treated with chemical free fire retardants. A mattress is required to made of only natural materials in order to obtain certification as nontoxic. Further, the law requires all mattresses to be made fire retardant during production. While most fire retardant materials are made of harmful chemicals, there are approved natural alternatives. It appears neither BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, nor Tempurpedic hold nontoxic certifications for their latex mattresses. Their products, therefore, are made of some amount of potentially toxic synthetic materials. Further, all of their products use toxic chemicals to meet fire retardant requirements. Brentwood Home is the lone company among these particular competitors to hold nontoxic certification and to use chemical free fire retardants. If health and wellness are major concerns for you and your loved ones, it may be a wise choice to learn more about what your mattress is made of. You are, after all, spending about one-third of your life in close contact with one.
