What is a Natural Latex Mattress?
What we call natural latex is a derivative of the sap harvested and collected from rubber trees. 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. If natural latex is made properly, it is renewable, sustainable, and free of synthetic materials. 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. Another quality of natural latex is its ability to repel dust mites and germs without the need for chemicals or toxins. Additionally, natural latex allows for better airflow and a cooler sleeping surface. Latex mattresses are sold by most major manufacturers. It should be noted that most of the latex used in those mattresses is actually synthetic, not natural.
Targeted Support and Targeted Pressure Relief
When shopping for a natural latex mattress, there are several things you should consider. Number one - the targeted support and targeted pressure relief of the mattress. Targeted support represents the areas where you get the most support from the mattress. Mattresses vary in number of targeted support zones, and they may have the targeted support zones in different areas. Although the mattress is expensive, it still might not have 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. Also, the price range of their mattresses is between $1500-$7000. In comparison, Brentwood Home offers natural latex mattresses with five targeted support zones priced between $795-$1795. Another factor to consider when shopping for a latex mattress is targeted pressure relief. These are zones in the mattress that target and relieve stress on the certain areas of the body where the most pressure can build up during a night’s sleep. Again, the more expensive mattress isn’t the guarantee for the pressure relief zones. Neither Stearns and Foster, BeautyRest, or Tempurpedic are currently offering mattresses with targeted pressure relief zones. Natural latex mattresses from Brentwood Home offer up to three pressure relief zones. To get the best night’s sleep, your mattress should have both targeted support and targeted pressure relief zones. This guarantees that you will have the support you need while relieving any pressure build up in your body. With these qualities you will get the relief and the support your body needs. 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. Toxic materials and chemicals used in manufacturing and post-production result in many models of mattress being sold that can potentially cause health problems for a wide number of ordinary, as well as particularly sensitive, users. Synthetic materials are also problematic when it comes to bacteria; they tend to breed more and do not effectively prevent against growth. A nontoxic certification and a verification of use of chemical free fire retardants are two ways to check for a nontoxic mattress. A mattress is required to made of only natural materials in order to obtain certification as nontoxic. Additionally, the law requires all mattresses to be treated with fire retardant materials during production. Most fire retardant materials are made of harmful chemicals, but there are natural alternative available for use. Neither BeautyRest Black, Saatva, Stearns and Foster, nor Tempurpedic appear to hold any 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. Only Brentwood Home, among these particular competitors, can boast a nontoxic certification and use of 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.
