Could your bed really be making you sick?

Consider this…
  • Americans spend over one-third of their lives in bed, further increased during winter months (55 percent of adults said they sleep more during the winter months).
  • Well over one-half (58 percent) of adults often feel sick or not rested when they sleep on an old or uncomfortable mattress – the research strongly suggests that Americans should better consider their mattress to help keep their bodily defenses strong.
  • A recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, showed that those who slept less than an average of seven hours per night were nearly three times more likely to develop a common cold than those who reported eight or more hours per night in the weeks leading up to the experiment.(1)
  • The National Sleep Foundation includes ensuring a comfortable and supportive mattress within their top Healthy Sleep Tips for consumers
