Benefits of Latex Mattresses
Comfort & Support
When you lie on a latex mattress, the first thing you will notice is your body softly sinking in, followed by a buoyant level of support that comes from latex’s natural springiness. This relieves the excess pressure on the hips and shoulders while providing support to the lighter areas of the body, giving you proper spinal alignment and improved blood flow distribution for a longer, more restful sleep.
Traditional mattresses, on the other hand, need to be firm to give your body proper support, while the high support factor of latex mattresses allow them to be softer while providing the same or better level of support. These unparalleled properties make it easier to choose a latex mattress, simply pick the one that’s most comfortable to you and the latex will take care of the rest.
Better REM Sleep
The elastic, low hysteresis properties of Latex allow your body to move with less resistance during sleep. This allows you to conserve energy throughout the night by remaining in the deep, restorative REM state needed for a truly restful sleep. The softness also minimizes the motion transfer when sharing the bed with someone else, similar to that of a memory foam mattress.
Latex mattresses can be used for 25 years or more with minimal loss in firmness. This is confirmed through roller dowel testing which simulates decades of use.
The pinhole construction of latex foam rubber, along with its open-cell structure, allows for better air circulation through the mattress. This creates a ventilated sleeping surface that doesn’t retain nearly as much body heat, leading to a more comfortable sleeping temperature.
Naturally Resistant to Mold, Mildew and Dust Mites
Hypoallergenic foams that makeup latex mattresses prevent moisture absorption, making them resistant to mildews, molds and dust mites. Not only is this beneficial for a healthier sleep, but it also extends the lifespan of these mattresses dramatically.

*An important note about latex mattresses is that they can be made from either natural materials or man-made synthetic latex. Natural latex comes from a milky, white fluid derived from rubber trees, whereas that latter is comprised of chemicals, which can also be labeled as latex or even all-latex. When shopping for your next mattress, make sure you ask what your mattress is really made of.
