How Exercise and Sleep Can Help Keep Your Body Healthy!

Exercise has multiple benefits that can be seen in those who enjoy fitness training, running, jogging, walking, or any other kinds of sporting activities or exercises. Keeping your body at its peak physical fitness levels and ensuring you are healthy are two very important concerns for many people. Due to this, exercise is often called a miracle or wonder drug, allowing you to achieve your best! And what better way is there to reward yourself for a strong fitness session than with an amazing nights’ sleep?

Latex mattresses and beds are perfect for a good night’s sleep. For those who have spent a portion of their day exercising or working on their physical fitness, there’s nothing like coming home to a comfortable bed with great support. Latex beds give you the comfort you desire, and ensure that you feel as though you are sleeping on a cloud, by using a unique 7-density zone structure and creating a shape that is perfect for you to sleep on. In this way, the perfect sleeping conditions are achieved.

In addition to this, a 2010 scientific research review suggested that exercise can help to improve sleeping patterns and sleep quality, and can even help with curing sleeping disorders such as insomnia. This shows the strong influence that exercise can have on your night time regime, allowing you to get the perfect night’s sleep and be ready to exercise all over again the next day! Such a routine will go miles towards helping you achieve your peak levels of physical fitness and keeping you healthy and strong.

Whilst a comfortable mattress can help you relax after exercise, exercise itself can help you enjoy a better sleep. It is recommended that you exercise 4 to 8 hours before bedtime, as this can also help in curing insomnia and allowing you to get the best night’s sleep possible. This highlights the benefits of exercise not only for your cardiovascular system and flexibility, but also for your relaxation and sleeping schedule.

Exercising daily and creating positive and efficient sleeping patterns can work wonders for your health, and with the help of a latex mattress this can be easily achieved. Other benefits of regular exercise and getting a good night’s sleep include the strengthening of the heart and other muscles, increased energy levels, lowered feelings of depression, a consistent release of endorphins and noradrenalin in the brain which can make you feel re-energised and happy, improved mental wellbeing and better weight control. With benefits such as these, you’d be silly to say no to creating such a positive lifestyle!

Although getting into a regular routine of exercise and a sleeping cycle that suits your lifestyle may be difficult at first, the benefits will be enough of a reward to keep you in the pattern of building your healthy lifestyle and improving your overall wellbeing. Made out of the most resilient, durable and natural latex content, latex mattresses are engineered for your ultimate comfort and support.

TYPES OF LATEX MATTRESSES

Latex mattresses are available in three types:

1. NATURAL LATEX MATTRESSES

Premium 100% Natural Latex Mattresses are the most expensive, ranging from $ 2000-6000. The cost is greater than synthetic blended latex. But the extra cost is outweighed by the guaranteed long life of support and comfort you will receive. Unlike synthetic latex, no harmful chemical emissions are released into your bed, making them by far the healthiest choice for you and your family. Natural Latex is also 100% bio-degradable and no petroleum products are used during its production, making it the healthiest choice for you and the environment.

2. SYNTHETIC LATEX MATTRESSES

Synthetic latex mattresses can cost as little as $600 and up to $6000. It depends largely on the percentage of Synthetic and Natural polymers used. For example, the cheaper synthetic latex mattresses may contain no natural latex, the more expensive ones could have up to 60% natural latex polymers. The latex mattresses that blend the natural latex polymers with the synthetic petroleum based polymers are more commonly know as Talalay Latex Mattresses. Although inferior to Premium Quality 100% Natural Latex Mattresses they still maintain similar benefits and use less harmful chemicals than regular foam or spring mattresses.

3. HYBRIDS MATTRESSES

Hybrid latex mattresses layer some latex over synthetic foam or an innerspring core. They can be inexpensive or high-priced, but their main disadvantage is that they are not as durable and give less support than a 100 % Natural latex mattress.   LATEX MATTRESS COMFORT OPTIONS People have different needs and preferences for the degree of firmness they require in a latex mattress. There are a number of options:
  • Ultra Plush: Soft, Soft Medium Support.
  • Plush: Soft, Medium, Medium Support
  • Cushioned : Soft, Medium, Firm Support
  • Firm Cushioned: Medium, Medium, Firm Support
  • Firmest: Medium, Firm, Firm Support.

No Hot Sleeps with Our 100% Natural Latex Mattresses

Natural Latex Mattresses have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. 90% of people sleeping on 100% natural latex mattresses vote them the most comfortable bed they have ever had. This compares with 70% of people sleeping on synthetic latex or polyurethane foam and 60% of people sleeping on traditional mattresses with springs. Sleeping on a naturally breathing Latex Mattress makes good sense. You will be more comfortable because your body more easily maintains the most comfortable temperature. Synthetic materials restrict breathing and cause body stress.

Not all Latex is the same

There are two main types: Dunlop processed latex made from 100% natural latex polymers and Talalay Latex which is a synthetic blended latex. Even within these two types quality can vary a lot, depending on the quality of the polymer, the manufacture’s technical equipment and skill and the inbuilt features of the end product. We confidently recommend our Premium Quality 100 % Natural Dawn Latex Mattresses which are covered by our 60 Day Comfort guarantee and 10 year warranty.

 

Latex mattresses breathe well

Natural Latex Mattresses breathes due to their reticulated open cell structure. Our reticulated latex foam is made up of countless tiny cells that form a net like structure that is highly resilient and breathable. This allows maximum movement of the cells without causing structural break-down. Petroleum based, slow recovery Memory Foam is also a reticulated foam. But Latex Mattresses are unique because they also feature a plethora of microscopic holes that penetrate from the top to the bottom of the mattress. Thus air and moisture pass right through, unlike the cell structure of normal foam. You can test this by pouring water on natural latex and see it pass right through. Now pour some on synthetic foam which acts like a sponge and will absorb all the water.

How well a latex mattress breathes is also dependent on the type of bed frame and slat system. A simple elevated, open bed frame design with posture slats will provide much better air circulation to your latex mattress than a bulky frame which surrounds the mattress restricting air circulation. Most important is the type of slats. Posture slats are timber slats made with a slight upward curve. They allow about 80% more air circulation than typical flat slats. Our Posture slats also have more flexibility so they provide better contouring for different body shapes and weights. The upward curving feature of our posture slats has even been shown to correct spinal misalignment and other associated problems. Our Posture Slat Systems can also be fitted with adjustable weight sliders so they can be adjusted to individual requirements.

 

Improve your posture with our slat system

Not all posture slat systems are the same quality. Some posture slats on the market are mounted poorly, flatten or break, or too few are provided to give adequate support. You will suffer none of these problems with the Dawn Latex Mattress Slat System, fully covered by our 10 year warranty. Combine our quality 100% Natural Dawn Latex Mattress with our well-designed Dawn posture slat bed frame, and you will be sleeping on one of the most comfortable beds in the world today.

Latex mattress advantages

Latex Mattresses have many other advantages. Not only is the material breathable and comfortable, latex is also one of the most durable bedding materials. You may pay more for your natural latex mattress up front, but you can count on it lasting you up to 3 times longer than a good conventional spring mattress. Our Latex mattresses are also naturally anti- bacterial and repel dust mites, so no added chemicals need to be added. Dawn Latex Mattresses are 100% chemical free and also have removable covers which can easily be washed at home.

Dawn Latex Mattresses provide mattresses of various densities for different body types, soft, medium and firm. In most cases, the heavier the person the firmer the latex recommended. Our Dawn Natural Latex Beds free online consultation will give you the best latex density to suit your body type and individual needs. Another special feature of the Dawn latex mattresses is multi- density layering which allows you to adjust the overall density of the mattress at home and at anytime. So when you go shopping for your mattress, choose a Dawn Latex Bed and get better value for your dollar.

No added Chemicals in our Natural Latex Mattresses

Happy family holding hands walking along a pathWe spend nearly one-third of their lives sleeping, so the quality of your mattress is extremely important. Experts recommend replacing a conventional spring mattress after seven years, as it loses support and becomes unhygienic. Dust mites and their by-products as well as dead human skin cells accumulate in old spring mattresses. If you’re in the market for a new mattress you should consider Our Premium Quality 100% Natural latex Mattresses which offer superior comfort, support, durability, hygiene and sustainability.

Environmental And Health Pitfalls Of Conventional Mattresses

Conventional mattresses are generally made of non-biodegradable materials that clog landfills with toxic waste for years after disposal. Toxicity results from spraying with chemicals like polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) to make them flame resistant. Nor do you win the battle against dust mites by purchasing a visco-elastic polyurethane foam mattress; these types of mattresses emit volatile organic compounds. If you generally live a healthy dietary lifestyles you may be even more sensitive to these toxic compounds, and the PBDE toxins readily accumulate in the body’s tissue fat. These chemically-laden mattresses commit an environmental and personal offence.

Healthier Alternatives And Naturally Sustainable

It is good that the push to increase good environmental stewardship has reached the textile industries. There are now various natural  and organic  mattress products available, utilising cotton, wool, natural latex, or a combination of natural materials. The natural mattress niche market has not been much regulated, and it has been only recently that third-party organisations like ECO Umweltinstitut of Germany have emerged to verify the claims of natural mattress manufacturers.

Authentic Natural Latex Mattresses are made of 100 per cent pure natural latex tapped from rubber trees. Nor is it necessary to use chemical additives to make them fire resistant. A reputable company will invite third-party testing of the materials they use, so you may know you get truth in advertising.

 

Value Comparison

You could pay as much for a high quality Mattress as a small used vehicle. Such an investment requires careful thought. Natural Latex Mattresses with natural timber bed frames, priced from $4000.00, are actually great value, when you take into account all the health and durability benefits.

 

Conclusion

At Dawn Latex Beds we manufacture our latex mattresses from sustainably grown rubber tree plantations in Malaysia, and our bed frames are crafted from timber from local sustainable Australian forests. The result is beautiful furniture which supports an eco-friendly industry and gives you the truly restful sleep you need.

Tailoring the Latex Mattress Density to your Body Type

a couple sleeping well in bedSleeping comfort is guaranteed by matching the correct density latex mattress with your body height and weight. People with healthy backs often prefer firmer mattresses, but if you have stiffness and pain you may only sleep properly on a softer surface. Natural Latex Mattresses are the most adaptive because they conform to fit the sleeper’s shape, with the additional advantage of different firmness options. Take the guesswork out of choosing the right latex mattress by doing our free online sleep system consultation.

Tossing And Turning No More

Sleeping on a traditional inner spring mattress may put pressure on certain body points as the springs push back against you. Then you toss and turn to try to relieve the pressure point and your rest is disrupted. On a properly matched latex mattress this irritation is eliminated. You fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Give yourself the gift of restful sleep and your energy levels will rise.

Densities are Variable

How firm or soft your bed will feel depends on the density of the latex and how it is matched to your body type. An Indentation Load Deflection (IDL) measure is applied to all mattresses, including latex mattresses. This measure can range from 12 to 50, indicating a latex so soft it’s barely supportive to a firm texture that hardly depresses at all. We help you choose the ideal IDL number for you.

Indentation Recovery

An important component of a comfortable mattress is a good recovery rate. Some memory foam mattresses will hold the shape of your hands for minutes before reforming to a smooth surface, unlike natural latex mattresses which change back instantly. A bed that recovers too slowly may leave you uncomfortable after you switch positions while asleep. We will help you choose the perfect mattress for you, combining quick recovery with an appropriate degree of firmness. Our specialised service ensures your satisfaction even if you are ordering online and can’t visit our showroom.

How Latex Mattresses are made
Latex mattresses are made from either natural or synthetic latex, and some are made from a combination of the two. Natural Latex mattresses are created by pouring liquid latex into a mould and heating it until it vulcanizes. It emerges with holes that create different density zones over the length of the latex core and these holes also help to vent air when compressed. Overall, the Latex mattress is designed to fulfil one goal: the relief of pressure on your body to result in a comfortable night’s sleep.

Why Buy a Latex Mattress
Durability

Latex is the most durable material that can be used to make a mattress. No wonder a warranty of 10 years can be offered. The unique latex features means the latex mattress has an exceptional bounce-back capability when compressed, so it doesn’t develop sagging like spring mattresses.

Cost
How much you will pay for a latex mattress depends on the quality of the latex it contains and the quality of the cover materials. Thickness does not necessarily equate to durability. You are always better off having a latex mattress in only the thickness required to support your body weight correctly. Be aware thicker latex mattresses are usually made of inferior quality latex to help compensate on cost.

Comfort
Comfort is the biggest bonus of a latex mattress. With a temperature regulation feature, it will not feel too hot or too cold. And if you are one of the unfortunate people who suffers from back or joint pain, this is the type of mattress for you.

Hygiene
Natural Latex mattresses are more hygienic than those made with other materials. You won’t need to worry that your mattress will cause you ill-health. It will resist mould, bacteria and mildew and you won’t need chemical treatment to overcome such harmful contaminants. Because the latex mattress has smooth surfaces, dust mites can’t find refuge. Thus, a latex mattress is good for someone with an allergy, or asthma or another respiratory ailment.

The Environmentally Friendly Mattress
Latex mattresses are the best choice if you aim for a œgreen  home. Latex is a natural product made from rubber tree sap. It does not contain any chemicals or pollutants, and it is fully biodegradable when it eventually decomposes back into the environment.

 

As you can see, there are many reasons why people should consider buying a latex mattress rather than a traditional one. It will mean the difference between possible discomfort and a good night’s sleep.

Low Intensity Tapping System Programmes

Malaysia is the world’s third largest producer of natural rubber. In 2012, its output was 2.25 million tonnes. About 90% of that is produced by smallholders. The Malaysian Government aims to maintain its country’s premier position as a major producer and exporter, while uplifting the living standard of rubber smallholders. To this end it has initiated the Low Intensity Tapping System, programmes (LITS). Latex-World-008 This initiative makes available technologies that stimulate latex production of the rubber trees. By adopting this technology, rubber smallholders can increase their income. The need to spend fewer tapping days means farmers have more time for other economic activities to further enhance their income and lifestyle. Hired tappers can tap a larger area in a given time, thus reducing the labour problem in the rubber industry. Through the Malaysian LITS program, the latex mattress industry is assured of a continuing supply of quality material.
