If you separated a traditional mattress into all of its individual parts you would have a bunch of metal, synthetic fabric, petroleum based foam and some plastic. Essentially, most mattresses are made from chemicals and metal.
Why should this be of concern?
When at rest or at sleep, your body is vulnerable. Your body “breathes”; both absorbing and releasing elements into and from the environment; it is part of our life-rhythm. Toxic gases may be released from your traditional mattress and the fluids released from your body at night can mix with the chemicals in a traditional mattress creating a toxic swamp that can be detrimental to your health.
Traditional mattresses provide breeding havens for dust mites, mold and mildew. Many people unknowingly suffer from allergic reactions to the surface that they sleep on and the creatures that live in it.
After a few years of use, traditional mattresses begin to sag; especially pillow top models.
The coils and springs wear and start to separate, creating a canoe effect. If your mattress is flippable; that may help prolong the inevitable deterioration of a conventional mattress, but only by a few months or a couple of years at best.
When stripped down to the basics, your antiquated traditional mattress looks like a medieval torture device composed of carpet insulation and wiry springs rather than a rest inducing sleep sanctuary.
As our knowledge of man-made environmental hazards has expanded, our awareness of the importance of natural, organic products has grown as well. Organic mattresses, which by nature are healthier, have become more refined and elegant – even surpassing the comfort level of expensive conventional inner spring mattresses.
Gone are the days when consumers where forced to settle for “canvas-like, assemble-yourself, latex slabs in a bag”. Today, top of the line organic mattresses, like CozyPure®, offer beautiful, tight-top finished organic mattresses that out shine the aesthetics of much more expensive designer mattresses. Companies such as, CozyPure®, create organic mattress that are finished with soft, luxurious, organic color-grown, which reflects it’s balance and harmony with nature.
Natural latex is pure and fresh; both soft and buoyant, allowing a comfortable amount of softness, while still maintaining the necessary amount of orthopedic support required during healthy sleep.
When combining the health, environmental, durability and comfort issues of a conventional mattress, versus a quality organic mattress, then the choice is clear – an organic, natural latex mattress is far superior.
