The mattress you choose to lay your head on every night could be significantly affecting your body’s natural functions without you even realizing it. Keep reading to see how opting for a more natural, organic, and customized mattress could have a crucial impact on the quality of your daily life. 


Mattresses as Allergy Triggers  


Having serious and sensitive allergies can significantly impact a person’s quality of life. Whether it is  heavily monitoring the food you eat, the medicines you consume, or the products you use on a day to day basis, many people’s bodies are sensitive to the chemical heavy world we operate in. An often overlooked aspect of daily life that can easily trigger allergies happens when you aren’t even awake. 


Mattresses, which are mass produced, are often made with harsh chemicals and hazardous materials. A common material used in cheap mattresses is fiberglass, which when released from the inside of the mattress can be extremely irritating to humans and nearly impossible to remove from inside of a home. Other irritating chemicals commonly found are flame retardants, formaldehyde, and benzene. In addition to triggering allergies, these chemicals have even been rumored to be associated with a number of other serious health issues. 


These chemicals, aside from having direct contact with your body while you sleep, can also seep out, polluting the air you breathe while asleep. These chemicals also do nothing in defense of mold, dust mites, bacteria, mildew, or other mattress allergy triggers. 


The Importance of Quality Materials 


If you are someone who lives with allergies, you are no stranger to reading the ingredients list on products before you consume or buy them. Have you ever thought to consider the ingredients inside of your mattress, though? At Gardner mattress, we use certified chemical-free and organic materials. 


We incorporate Joma Wool, which is an allergy free component that we import from New Zealand. This unique material maintains the ability to stay warm in the winter, and cool in the summer, all while resisting common allergens. We also use talalay latex, a breathable material that is ideal for resisting bacteria, mildew, and immune to dust mite infestations. These two materials, which are rarely found in other manufacturer’s mattresses, are a key part of what makes a Gardner Mattress allergy-friendly and comfortable as well. 


Investing in Your Health  


Although opting for a cheaper mattress might be good for your wallet in the short-term, it will negatively impact your health in the long-term. Exposing your allergy-prone body to toxic chemicals and materials for hours per day will only worsen your symptoms. 


Even if you are someone who does not suffer from allergies, the human body is not meant to be exposed to such harmful chemicals at such an intimate and consistent level. Gardner Mattress prioritizes the quality of our materials, making sure we work with trustworthy and ethical suppliers. Our Natural Sleep Collection features organic cotton padding, which is resistant to dust mites, mildew, bacteria, and free of chemical treatment. 


You will spend one third of your life asleep, for the sake of your health in both the short and long-term ensuring that you are. When you choose Gardner Mattress you are prioritizing the health and wellbeing of your body, making an investment in yourself, while also getting the best comfort, naturally.
