You probably know that you should get six to eight hours of sleep each night. Getting a good night’s sleep does wonders for our well-being (including improved memory, losing weight and even living longer).

Of course, what you sleep on affects your quality of sleep. In this regard, nothing trumps organic latex mattresses in Sacramento. Made from all-natural latex, these mattresses are void of any harmful chemicals that can cause allergies or aggravate existing conditions, such as asthma.

Still, there are many misconceptions surrounding organic latex mattresses because of their relative shortage in stores in the local the market. Following are just some myths that need to be busted.

They’re Too Expensive

While it’s true that latex mattresses pose a higher initial cost, they are also very durable, lasting up to 20 years. In the time it takes to replace a latex mattress, you would have already gone through two or three traditional mattresses—and spent roughly the same amount or even less on a latex one. Indeed, a latex mattress will more than pay for itself over time.

They’re Too Hard

Just like other mattress options, a latex mattress can be customized with varying levels of firmness. All you need to do is tell your supplier your desired firmness and they will manufacture a bed that suits your specifications.

They Smell Like Rubber

Yes, latex is a form of rubber, but it doesn’t mean it has to smell like it. If the latex is 100% organic, it contains absolutely no chemicals, which is where that strong, rubbery smell of other latex mattresses emanates. Yes, you may get a whiff of that rubber scent when initially taking the mattress out of its package, but it will dissipate before you know it.

They Won’t Work on My Adjustable Bed

Contrary to what you might believe, latex mattresses are compatible with a wide variety of adjustable beds, such as the Reverie 8Q Adjustable Foundation from The Healthy Bed Store. Therefore, adjustable bed owners won’t have to buy a new bed frame just to accommodate a latex mattress.

Indeed, a natural latex mattress represents an investment in quality sleep and your overall health. If you want to know more about them, feel free to visit specialty stores that offer only certified organic mattresses, such as The Healthy Bed Store.
