Sleep is truly important to our general health and well-being. Sleep restores our immune system; it is required for laying down memory, to save our body’s energy, to restore mental function and for physical growth.
Researchers recently discovered a gene that regulates the duration of sleep an individual needs. The new findings may explain why some people appear to have an internal alarm clock, and can wake up on their own. It may also explain why some people are light sleepers, able to operate on only a few hours of sleep.
For us to achieve the healthiest sleep possible, our beds need protection from numerous factors such as bacteria, dust mites, bed bugs, allergens, liquids, body fluids and stains.
Prolong the life of your mattress
A mattress is a sizeable investment and there is no better way in protecting this than with a mattress protector.
Dust Mites & Allergies
Dust mites are the most common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms which include waking up in the morning with a stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, a sore throat, coughing, wheezing, and sneezing. You may be feeling their effects only too well.
Dust mites eat skin cells shed by people, and they thrive in warm, humid environments. In most homes, bedding, upholstered furniture and carpeting provide an ideal environment for dust mites.
Despite their tiny size, dust mites produce 10-20 waste particles per day, each containing a protein known to trigger allergic reactions and asthma.
Bed bugs are small wingless insects that feed solely upon the blood of warm-blooded animals. They are a parasite that has existed since ancient times. There are at least 92 known species of bed bugs found throughout the world. The most common species is the Cimex lectularius, which is best adapted to human environments.
