Sleep better with a memory foam mattress

31Written by Foam Factory, Inc.

Getting eight hours of sleep plays an outsized role in our physical health. Sleep is essential to the healing and repair of several bodily functions and recovery. Continuous lack of sleep has been shown to increase the risk of kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. One of the best ways to improve both the duration and quality of sleep is to get a memory foam bed mattress.

Developed in the 1960’s by NASA, memory foam is now one of the most popular types of foam. When sleeping on a memory foam mattress, the shape of the mattress alters to accommodate the shape of the person. This change of shape then supports the body’s natural curvature.

Sleeping on a memory foam mattress has shown to be restful. Another benefit is that it has also shown to relieve pain. There are no scientific studies to back this claim, though many point out that the improved sleep alone could be the cause. When there is no longer anyone on the mattress it restores itself to its natural shape.

One thing to watch out for that is that memory foam retains heat. You might find that it feels hotter when sleeping on your queen size memory foam mattress on warm nights. Air conditioning will ensure that this is not an issue.
