Lo-down on Latex ~ Sleep Quality vs Quantity

Latex Foam Mattresses

Talalay? Natural? Organic?

Sleep coaches expound its virtues. Sales associates point to latex foam mattresses and flash their high-end smile. Brochures, ads and labels scrawl it in big, bold letters… on angles… with little golden outlines.

Nirvana for joint pain sufferers? An insomniac’s Valhalla? Is a latex foam mattress the answer to your sleep problems or just another buzzword trying to grab your attention?

And by the way…would the real latex please stand up?

Natural vs. Synthetic


Latex from the Tree

Natural latex foam comes from the Hevea Brasilinesis, or “rubber” tree, tapped and gently drained maple-syrup like. Latex pillows, latex mattresses and latex bed toppers are created with this firm, yet supple chuck o’foam. It’s biodegradable, hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to mold, mildew and bacteria.

Synthetic latex is a man-made compound of styrene and butadiene. It’s used for a myriad of products, many in the sleep industry. It’s less expensive than natural latex and more commonly used.

While synthetic latex claims to harbor no allergen properties, it’s less resilient than its natural counterpart.

Dunlop vs. Talalay

 Talalay and Dunlop refer to the process used to transform liquid latex to foam latex. The Dunlop process involves frothing the liquid latex, pouring it into a mold and baking it. This process produces latex with a firmer bottom (the latex particles sink during baking) and a lighter top.

The Talalay method begins the same, however, once the latex is molded, it’s sealed, vacuumed and flash frozen to stop the sinking and maintain a consistent cell structure. It has the same density throughout, and maintains resilience longer.


Latex Comparison

Healthy sleep solutions: hypoallergenic meets body cushioning comfort.

Latex foam mattresses are loved above all for the health and comfort advantages they possess.

  • Latex mattresses are breathable.
  • Latex mattresses conform to your body shape, and reduce pain from pressure points
  • Natural latex is moisture resistant, making your bed a hostile environment to the friendly neighborhood dust mite, bed bug, bacteria, mold and mildew population.
  • Organic latex mattresses contain no synthetic foam and are chemical-free, creating a healthier breathing environment for you to sleep in.

    certainly like your web site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.

    • Thanks Sandra-
      I do appreciate the time you took to point that out, I know how annoying it can be to try and read anything when there are so many spelling errors that you struggle through sentences, guessing at what they mean! No excuse either, not with spell check ready to go to work – I will proof read posts and hope you come back and visit soon!

    Hi, thx for this article – really helpful!

  14. One common cause of lower back pain is strains of your lower back muscles. This is usually because these muscle groups are weak and we over have tried it doing an activity or work throughout the house or at work. This is Northern Cali. most of us are active or visit the gym or both. But even of the reading this who are active in ever day life or training how often do you workout your spine .? Most of us almost never unless i am in a structured work out software. If you aren’t lower back exercises are highly suggested to forestall injuries. So I would like to suggest a hassle-free one to try. They are identified as back ups or reverse sit ups. All you need to do is lay on your stomach using your legs flat place your hands behind your head and lift your upper body up till you you are able to look up and see the threshold above you. The motion should like a sit up only reversed. You could perhaps try lifting one shoulder before one another in a twisting motion like you should in a crunch. Try 10 reps of each one twice a day and help prevent small of the back injuries. As always please consult a doctor before starting any workout and if your exercise causes pain stop and consider having a check up.

  15. Nice article, few new things for me – appreciate
