Latex Foam Mattresses
Latex foam mattresses conform completely to body contours, providing exceptional comfort and support. The body contouring of the latex foam mattress encourages proper spinal alignment and reduces the stress on muscles and joints. For this reason, the latex foam mattress is perfect for anyone with back pain or arthritis. Body contouring also allows the foam mattress to accommodate any sleep position; whether it's on the stomach, side or back. No matter how many times a sleeper changes positions the latex foam will automatically adjust to new body contours and angles. By continually providing support where needed, latex foam drastically reduces pressure points and improves circulation. Most sleepers change positions to relieve pressure points, and with this problem eliminated, a latex foam mattress promotes uninterrupted, deep sleep.
In addition to relieving body aches and pains, a latex foam mattress has anti-allergy benefits; it is anti-microbial, dust mite resistant and mildew proof. These types of mattresses are very popular among allergy sufferers since finding an effective allergy-fighting mattress can be difficult. Trying to sleep while suffering from allergies is also very difficult. If you suffer from allergies, you may want to consider a latex foam mattress to help alleviate the allergy symptoms while you sleep.
Many of the benefits of latex foam mattresses are shared with memory foam mattresses. Both provide superior body contouring, direct comfort and support benefits and both are hypoallergenic. However, since the latex foam mattress is derived from the rubber tree the latex foam is considered natural (or organic) as opposed to memory foam, which is completely synthetic. Memory foam is temperature sensitive, while latex foam is not. Memory foam is denser (heavier) than latex foam and latex foam mattresses are considered more durable than memory foam.
Ultimately, it is going to be your decision to choose which type of mattress is best suited for your needs. You are going to want a mattress that provides your body with the support and comfort it needs to be able to rest at night. Quality of sleep is very important in order to function and perform duties on a daily basis. If you can't decide which type of mattress suits you best, do some research or ask a professional for some advice. Most salespeople will be more than happy to help.
