Is a New Memory Foam Pillow Right for You?


Memory Foam Pillow

You love your memory foam mattress. Memory foam was first used in mattresses in the 1990s and has been growing in popularity ever since. It’s easy to see why. Memory foam mattresses are known for their durability and targeted response to body weight. The memory foam in mattresses contours to the heaviest parts of the body, relieving pressure points and providing support. Unlike innerspring mattresses, memory foam does not add any opposing pressure to your body while you sleep. This makes memory foam great for aligning your spine and providing support to your lower back. 

Have you given much thought to your pillow? If you love your mattress, a memory foam pillow may be the perfect addition to your bed!

The Benefits of Sleeping on a Memory Foam Pillow

Just like sleeping on a memory foam mattress brings many benefits to your life, the same can be said for a memory foam pillow. Memory foam contours to your head, neck, and shoulders. Because the pillow molds to your head, it assists in keeping your spine aligned.

Traditional pillows tilt your head forward. When your head remains aligned with your neck and spine on a memory foam pillow, you will snore less. Your airway passages will remain open, and this often remedies or lessens snoring.

Anyone who wakes up with a stiff or sore neck, suffers from headaches, or has general difficulties sleeping comfortably may be a candidate to try a memory foam pillow. That being said, reducing and preventing pain is just one fantastic benefit of memory foam pillows. Memory foam pillows are also hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant. Not only does the right pillow help you sleep better at night, but it also helps you feel better throughout the day. That’s because you will finally have a great night of sleep!
