A sleeping body easily charges up to high voltages. Research has shown that high body voltage stimulates the production of cortisol. High cortisol levels often cause insomnia and sleep disruption. The Performance Mattress Fabric uses carbon infused thread to capture the electrons and release them into the air (without grounding the mattress). The fabric uses electromagnetic carbon thread that absorbs static and releases it into the air, lowering the body's voltage resulting in a lower cortisol level and a deeper and more relaxing sleep. Give yourself a full night's sleep, reduce stress, and wake refreshed with better concentration for work or study. Mattress ticking helps the body release static electricity built up during the day, thus facilitating restorative sleep. Reduced static electricity relieves the body. Anti-bacterial and mite repellent. Washable and retains its properties permanently.
FIRM - EXTRA FIRM mattresses and futons are ideal for back sleepers and tummy sleepers alike. Firm and extra firm mattresses offer back and tummy sleepers support to the right parts of your body. Proper spinal and hip alignment is critical in the prevention of tossing and turning which leads to sleep disruption. The firmer support our futons and mattresses provide offer a more neutral-spine position during sleep. Sleeping on a firm or extra firm bed allows your bones to become aligned, alleviating some if not all, of the pressure, thus allowing your muscles, arteries and veins to relax. As a result, the blood circulation in the body improves, helping you sleep better. Another benefit to a firm or extra firm mattresses is that it prevents your lower back from collapsing when you lay on it, ensuring your breathing is not constricted, supplying your body with more oxygen, which is crucial for good sleep.
Buying a mattress without lying on it is easier than you may think. Even if you get the opportunity to lie on a mattress in a store it is not the same as an eight hour slumber.
