One of the most popular mattress toppers on the market today is the natural latex topper. While comfort is the main reason that most users add a topper to their existing mattress, there are many other good reasons to add a latex topper in particular. If you haven’t made up your mind yet as to which type of topper to use, here are some of the best benefits to using a topper made from natural latex.
A truly natural, organic topper made from latex is completely chemical free and allergy free for most users. The material is made from rubber that is harvested from the rubber tree plant in areas of the world like Brazil. The rubber is processed without the use of binders, fillers or chemical additives. Latex is a popular choice for those who want to avoid any synthetic material on which to sleep.
The material is also extremely durable and easily lasts up to 20 years or more with very little maintenance. It also retains its shape and density without deterioration over the years. A good quality latex topper is worth the invest because of how long the material can be used.
A natural latex topper resists mold, mildew and dust mites simply because of its unique fibers. Latex is dense, yet breathable. The density of the material makes it impossible for dust mites to survive and thrive in the fibers. Also, its natural breathability is a deterrent to the growth of mildew and mold over the course of its use.
Latex bedding offers users supreme comfort as well as body support, again, because of the material’s density and ability to contour to the body just right. Those who suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, back problems, or have sustained injuries will notice an immediate difference in their sleep when a latex topper is added to a mattress. For best results, a medium firmness grade latex topper that is 1 inch to 2 inches thick may be quite adequate, depending on the firmness or softness of your current mattress.
