How to Find the Best Natural Latex Mattress


Best Natural Latex Mattress

If you prefer natural materials, a Talalay Latex mattress is for you. This type of Latex is derived from rubber, which naturally flows from rubber trees. We carry several fantastic mattresses featuring varying densities of this Talalay Latex. Natural latex often serves to provide core and comfort layers with firm, yet supple support. 

This is actually much more natural and eco-friendly than it may sound. You see, this natural rubber is a renewable resource and flows from trees planted in a responsible manner without harming them. Top mattress brands choose Talalay Latex to create the best natural latex mattress options because it makes it possible to create a mattress that is uniquely comforting while also conforming to your body’s individual curves. 

The Benefits of Sleeping on the Best Natural Latex Mattress

While some confuse the two, a latex mattress and a memory foam mattress are not the same thing. A latex mattress is for you if you like a bed with more bounce and less sinking than a memory foam bed. Latex mattresses tend to feel lighter and have less hug than memory foam. They still relieve pain and pressure points but have a more general contour. Latex mattresses also are cooler than memory foam because they allow for more airflow. The best natural latex mattresses tend to have a similar level of comfort as an innerspring mattress, but are made from more natural materials and are more durable.

There are many benefits to sleeping on a latex mattress. If back pain keeps you awake at night, consider a latex mattress. Latex has the body-cradling properties of memory foam, but it also provides the support you need to wake up without aches and pains. Latex mattresses also are cooler than memory foam because they allow for more airflow. If you tend to get too warm when you sleep, this is a fantastic option. As briefly mentioned above, these mattresses are also very durable. You’ll never need to worry about a squeaky spring again!

How Long does a Latex Mattress Last?

You can expect many wonderful years out of your new latex mattress. Because this material is so durable and well-designed, mattress brands are willing to offer outstanding warranties on these products. For example, PranaSleep offers a “20 Year Warranty, 10 Years Full, 10 Years Prorated” on their top Om Collection. Imagine sleeping in true comfort and support for the next decade or even two! The better a mattress is made and cared for once in your home, the longer it will last- it is as simple as that.
