Latex Mattress Toppers / Mattress Overlays are the best mattress topper available. They are by far the most durable mattress overlay, and can give years of better sleep. Lets first look at the strengths of a latex mattress topper over other types of mattress toppers.
Why a Latex Mattress Topper – Mattress overlay
Latex is Eco- Friendly
Because a natural latex mattress topper is made from naturally farmed rubber trees, it is a sustainable. Now, here is something you should know about organic latex. Firstly, it is very rare. In fact as of the time of this writing there is only one plantation in the world that is certified USDA/EU natural organic. The question is, is there really much difference between organic and non-organic latex products? The answer to that is- not much. You see chemical fertilizers are only used for the first few years of a rubber tree’s life and after that are not needed. By the time a tree is old enough to produce latex it has been several years since any chemicals were used on it anyway. This means that even non-organic latex is pretty free of chemical residues. Of course, there is always the chance of contamination even after years of no chemicals, but the chances are probably fairly slim and could occur with an ‘organic’ product anyway.
Latex is Long Lasting
A latex mattress is probably the most durable form of mattress out there. There are stories of these mattresses lasting 30 years before they need replacement. This is unheard of with any other form of mattress.
Actually a latex mattress topper should not affect even people with a latex allergy. The proteins that cause a latex allergy in items like latex gloves for example a removed during the 5 step washing process involved in making a latex mattress topper. Items like latex gloves are made using a “cold dip” method. The latex in mattresses is made by super heating the latex which effectively alters it so that any remaining allergy forming proteins are removed. As far as we are able to ascertain, there has never been an allergic reaction reported to the FDA that was as a result of contact with a latex mattress. Naturally, if you have a severe allergy to latex take the time to test the mattress for any reaction before you go sleeping on it- there is a first time for everything.
Latex mattress toppers are naturally anti-microbial. They inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi. Also dust mites have a really tough time surviving in a latex mattress topper. This is good news in pretty much every way. Large numbers of bacteria, fungi and dust mites growing on the thing you sleep on is probably not a good thing. Regular mattresses attempt to achieve the same result by using chemicals. With a latex mattress , it is not necessary to use these chemicals on the thing you are sleeping on.
Good Support Even for Heavy People
A latex mattress topper is usually the most ideal topper for a heavy person. This is because the natural latex makes a denser base than other materials. It maintains its ability to provide good support, even if your body weight is well over 100 kilos. It conforms naturally to your bodies’ posture regardless of whether you sleep on your side, stomach or back. Modern latex mattress toppers come in a variety of different densities so you can find the ideal one for your situation.
