Natural Latex Mattress Benefits

Thinking about a new mattress?  Tired of tossing and turning and sleeping in that crater in the middle of your innerspring bed?  Perhaps you are thinking about a memory foam mattress or an all natural latex mattress.  Both are great choices, but today I’m going to talk a little bit about natural latex mattresses.

100% all natural latex is completely botanically derived and contains nothing artificial.  It is extremely comfortable, antimicrobial, dust mite free, and resists mold and mildew.  It’s not only great for those with allergies or asthma, but for those who want a chemical-free, allergen free sleeping environment.  The Benefits of Natural Latex Mattresses makes some great points about all natural latex mattresses.  It is important to understand that up to 80% of the latex mattresses on the market today are not all natural latex, but are made synthetically using petrochemicals.  Although those who sell these synthetic latex mattresses would like you to believe that they are just as good as all natural latex mattresses but cheaper, this is not true.  A synthetic latex mattress has a tendency to develop ruts and lumps and doesn’t last nearly as long as an all natural latex mattress.  In the long haul, an all natural latex mattress is the most cost effective choice.  When looking for a natural latex mattress, make sure the latex mattress is 100% natural latex.  Many retailers will call their product a “natural latex mattress” when it just has a small amount of natural latex in it and the rest is synthetic.

At Healthy Foundations, we sell memory foam, but we want you to be as informed about your mattress choices as possible.  In addition to our Guide to Memory Foam, we also have buyer’s guides for air beds and all natural latex mattresses.
