Why do some people love latex mattresses? Because they know that latex is a supportive and natural premium material that is comfortable, supportive and durable. But what is latex and why is it an increasingly popular option for sleep enthusiasts?

What is natural rubber latex?

Latex is made from sap from the Hevea brasiliensis rubber tree. When it’s harvested, it closely resembles the sap of maple trees. To create the soft natural surface of latex, the sap is made into a solid through a cooling and heating process. This makes the sap into the comfortable yet firm mattress that latex fans love.

What does a latex mattress feel like? 

Latex mattresses vary in plushness and firmness depending on how the latex is manufactured and how it is layered into the mattress. Our customers love the three different combinations of plushness and and firmness we offer in our Inspire collection. We also offer a latex option in our all natural Natural 2.1, as well as our luxurious Bliss 100 & Bliss 200.

Natural latex is a very comfortable and supportive sleep surface.  It gently conforms to the curves and edges of your body allowing for optimal spinal alignment and for releasing tension from pressure points.

What are the health benefits of natural latex? 

Natural latex is hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, as well as mildew and mold resistant. This means that you can experience relief from allergy issues with a latex mattress.

How durable is latex?

Latex generally last twice as long as conventional innerspring mattresses. All natural and natural mattresses have greater durability than a traditional foam innerspring mattress that does not feature natural materials. You can expect your quality latex mattress to last over 15 years. Be sure to purchase from a name you trust to get a high performance mattress that will deliver great sleep year over year.

While inexpensive synthetic mattresses increasingly dominate the mass market, traditional mattress-makers like us continue to build long-lasting natural beds. This means we still make mattresses one-by-one that are double-sided and composed of natural materials such as cotton, latex, wool and horse hair. Luckily, discerning buyers continue to invest in the comfort, durability and health benefits offered by time-honored methods. 

Our Lush Collection features horsehair, organic wool, natural rubber later and cotton for the ultimate sleep experience.

The Benefits of Superior Natural Materials

Growing Concerns about Chemicals

After decades of dominance, consumer advocates and the medical community began to raise alarm about synthetic materials in the home. Everyday goods – from household cleaners, to personal care products, to cookware, furniture, and beyond were suddenly in question.

Evidence now tells us that  ingesting toxic airborne pollutants that can lead to a multitude of health issues including respiratory tract irritation, a weakened immune system, reproductive problems such as hormone disruptions, infertility, miscarriage, and birth defects, neurodevelopmental disorders, and even cancer. The term “off-gassing” emerged to described airborne chemicals emitted by household goods; in recent years, off-gassing has increasingly associated with toxic emissions from petrochemical-based mattresses.

Human Growth Hormone, also known as somatotropin, is a protein hormone that is manufactured by the pituitary gland. The vast majority of HGH is released into the bloodstream during deep or “slow wave” sleep which occurs during the third and fourth stages of the full five stage sleep cycle.  Deep sleep can only occur when the body is completely relaxed.

HGH Key Functions

  • Maintains proper brain function
  • Supports homeostasis and stimulates the immune system
  • Encourages lipolysis, the conversion of adipose fats into fuel for the body
  • Stimulates protein synthesis which is essential for age appropriate development and maintaining good health.  
  • Stimulates the growth of all internal organs excluding the brain

High HGH production is associated with youth, vigor and higher cognitive performance, with levels peaking during puberty and naturally declining with age. This leads to lost muscle and bone mass, as well as generally lower sleep quality and energy levels.

Insufficient HGH highly correlates with compromised emotional and mental wellbeing. Studies demonstrate that adults who are deficient in HGH experience higher rates of depression.

How to Increase HGH Production

The most effective way to increase HGH production is to consistently achieve deep restful sleep by maintaining a consistent routine that allows for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. While certain activities such as intense exercise can trigger a spike in productiondeep sleep is still when the vast majority of HGH is released for any person, so sleep hygiene is of paramount importance.  

Common Obstacles to Deep Sleep

Evidence suggests that disruptions in sleep patterns can significantly inhibit or even stop HGH production. Two common obstacles to achieving deep sleep are sleeping hot or aching joints and muscles.

Sleeping Hot is Exhausting

Temperature regulation is a highly energy intensive process that can range from shivering to sweating at the extremes. Sweating is a cooling mechanism and shivering warms the body. Overheating in bed is often caused or made worse by polyurethane foam mattresses and synthetic sheets which trap heat. The body will work very hard to maintain homeostasis and so as long a sleeper is hot, HGH production will be inhibited.

When Sleep is Not Supported

Secondly, muscles cannot relax with poor support and will continuously struggle adjusting throughout the night, changing positions and manipulating covers to achieve proper spine alignment.

Into the Deep

In the course of a night of sleep, human beings will generally go through four to six complete 70-90 minute sleep cycles composed of five stages. Deep sleep phases are longer in the first few cycles and the final REM phase is longer in later phases. Thus, more HGH is generally produced in the first three sleep cycles which generally occur between 11pm and 3am.

Deep sleep accounts for about one quarter of total time slept and is the most restorative type of sleep. During these non-dreaming stages, there is progression from very light sleep to very deep sleep as brain waves slow down dramatically to delta waves. During stage three, 20-50 percent of brain activity is delta with smaller, faster waves  interspersed. Stage four is characterized by the deepest sleep and consists of 50 percent delta waves on average.

A tall glass of milk with dinner was a must growing up. Mom said it would help us become strong and healthy. In fact, I remember being served up a warm glass of milk if I had gotten up out of bed (maybe for the second time that night), complaining to my parents that I just couldn’t fall asleep.

It’s funny how we fall into patterns, doing the same thing our parents did when we were kids. When I am feeling tired but my body can’t seem to calm down, I rely on my mom’s old trick to solve the problem. I still pour myself a glass of milk to help me fall asleep.

It’s a well-known fact that milk is rich in calcium and supports our bodies well being in so many ways. Many people swear by warm milk as a tried and true food for better sleep. As far as I knew a glass of milk could only ever do you good, so I was surprised to learn that there may, in fact, be drawbacks to my nightcap ritual.

Before you pour yourself a glass of milk before bed tonight, consult these health benefits and drawbacks. Learn what milk does to your body as it sleeps through the night, and decide if the benefits ultimately outweigh the drawbacks.

Benefits of Milk Before Bed

Let’s be honest, when you sip a glass of warm milk before bed it just feels so good. The warmth seems to slowly spread it’s way through your whole body, creating a cozy and drowsy sensation. It turns out there’s a science behind those warm and fuzzy feelings!

Tryptophan

Does tryptophan ring a bell? Best known for causing the after-turkey-feast snooze session on Thanksgiving, this essential amino acid has a sleep-inducing effect. According to the National sleep foundation, tryptophan plays a key role in helping your body produce seratonin, which can reduce anxiety. If your mind is racing when it’s on your pillow instead of dreaming, the tryptophan in milk can help your body release serotonin, allowing your mind to relax and slip into sleep.

Melatonin

So what else is in that warm glass of milk that working its magic on your body to get it to sleep faster? A hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle, called melatonin, is also found in milk. Everyone’s melatonin hormone levels are different and they’re regulated by your internal clock.

Normally, melatonin levels rise in the body later in the evening when the sun has set, signaling our brain that it’s time for sleep. If your brain is not as tired as your body at bedtime, a glass of milk before bed could help boost your seratonin hormone levels and get your mind in sync with your body.

Protein

Do you ever go to bed feeling hungry? Maybe you ate dinner but then stayed up so late that you started to get late night cravings? Pangs of hunger can keep anyone up at night! A glass of milk is packed with protein and drinking one before going to sleep will help you feel full all night long, resulting in a better night’s sleep.

Enjoying your milk, but not seeing the desired results? Still can’t sleep? An interesting  Korean study suggests trying “night milk”. It may sound superstitious, but the study suggests that the time of day milk is taken from cows matters. Milk taken from cows in the evening (hence the name “night milk”) supposedly should have the most positive affects as a sleep aid.

The major benefits of drinking milk before bed include healthy proteins and amino acids that assist your body in getting a completely uninterrupted satisfying night’s sleep. So what could be the downside?

Drawbacks of Drinking Milk before Going to Bed

If you have ever topped off with a glass of milk before bed and subsequently experienced disrupted sleep because of an upset stomach, then you may have run into one of the major drawbacks of milk at night- lactose.

Lactose

Lactose is simply a sugar in milk. it’s what makes it taste just slightly sweet, and so satisfying, Unfortunately, According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, about 30 million to 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant! If you fall into this category, drinking a glass of milk before bed will only your body discomfort. Digestive issues like gas, bloating, cramps and diarrhea are just a list of things caused by lactose intolerance that could keep you up at night.

Glucose

Maybe you’re sure you aren’t lactose intolerant, but you’re still struggling. So what’s the deal? Because lactose is a sugar, large amounts of it before bed has other implications. If you are glucose intolerant, a warm glass of milk before bed could lead to a blood sugar crash.  Basically, your body startling awake in the middle of the night, to an energy-deprived brain, sending the “Eat!” signal. Wait… didn’t we discuss milk helping you helping you feel full through the night?? Yes, but, someone with a glucose intolerance will actually have the opposite experience.

Bottom line, you’ve got to know your body. If you are aware of your intolerance, you should be able to predict if the lactose in milk will be a set-back for you. Never fear! If you don’t want to give up your nightly warm cup of milk, there are tasty (lactose free) alternatives. Almond milk, coconut milk, and nut milk are steadily gaining popularity.

They are delicious and nutritious! Best of all, they provide the same positive sleep-inducing effects of cow milk, without the negative lactose effects.

Weight Gain

On a diet or counting calories? A glass of milk before bed is going to set you back. Milk is actually known in the fitness community circles as an agent for healthy weight gain. An 8 oz glass of milk has about 120 calories. Your metabolism slows down a bit as you sleep, so calories consumed right before bed are slightly tougher to burn. If weight loss is your ultimate goal, you’ll want to rethink any milk before bed routines.

Liver functioning

One last caution about having a warm glass of milk before bed is that it can interfere with the liver. According to nutritionist Anju Sood, at night your liver is hard at work detoxing junk from your body. Turns out milk can actually interfere with that process. Steer clear to allow your liver to execute its nightly task uninterrupted.

In Conclusion

There’s your list of major benefits and drawbacks to drinking a warm cup of milk before bed. There’s no doubt that milk offers so many positive health benefits, whether it’s consumed in the morning, afternoon, or evening.

It really comes down to knowing your body and paying attention to its signals. If you have a racing, restless mind at night, a glass of milk before bed could be a healthy, preferable alternative to downing Z-quill. But if lactose or glucose isn’t your friend, beware of the digestive issues that come with a glass of milk at night.

When in search of truly restful night’s sleep, it doesn’t hurt to pursue all available options. A calming warm glass of milk before bed is an easy, inexpensive trick to try. Cheers to a good night’s sleep!

Have you ever stopped to think about what’s in your bed? It seems like something we should care about, seeing as how we spend a good portion of our lives lying directly on top of it. We all want to know that we are getting the best sleep possible and that can really be affected by the material in our beds.

Cotton was the number one ingredient used for mattresses up until about 30 years ago when companies started filling their beds with foam. Foam is cheap, it breaks down fast and it’s not natural at all. Cotton is durable, breathable and natural. So let’s delve into the differences and see why you should have cotton in your bed.

Durability

All natural, unbleached long staple cotton is the most durable material you can use when building a mattress, take a look at most high-end mattresses ($10,000+) and you will see cotton is in almost all of them. In our beds, cotton is compressed, and tufted, which makes it even more durable and long-lasting, so you don’t have to buy a new mattress every 5 – 8 years, you can have a good quality bed that lasts 15+.

Foam, on the other hand, was introduced to increase margins and drive sales. Foam is cheap and so the manufacturers replaced their cotton, but still charged cotton prices, giving them more profit. That doesn’t seem fair! Foam also breaks down a lot faster, forcing customers to buy a new bed a lot sooner than they would with a cotton bed.

Breathability

If it’s hot, sleep is no fun, and if your bed it contributing to this problem, it could be affecting your health. Foam and memory foam specifically retain your body heat, that’s how they form to your body. This causes your baseline body temperature to rise over the course of the night, causing you to toss and turn, and maybe even wake up multiple times.

The industry has tried gel foams, phase change technology, and a slew of other “solutions” to fix this, but the easiest way is cotton. Cotton is very breathable, which is why it’s used for clothing, sheets, and mattresses. Cotton Incorporated, the people behind “The Fabric of Our Lives” even have a hashtag #CoolerinCotton.

“Natural fibres, such as horsehair, flax, wool, cotton and down are best if you get hot at night. Synthetic memory foam can become hot and may not absorb moisture efficiently so look for products that combat this if it’s an issue.” UK Sleep Council

Natural

Cotton is Natural, period. And the US is one of the top three producers which means we can source all of our materials right from home. Natural means a safer sleep as well, no chemicals, no off-gassing, no petroleum-based product making you sick. All those things are front and center when you sleep on polyurethane foams. I do want to give a shout out to Latex though, it is the only natural foam available and just like cotton, it is a wonder to sleep on.  Maybe we’ll cover Latex next time.

So, let’s review, Cotton is long lasting, adding value to your purchase and extending the life expectancy. It is breathable, keeping your body at its natural temperature, aiding in a more restful sleep, and keeping allergens away from you. It’s Natural, cutting out all the chemicals, off-gassing and ickiness of synthetic foams. Oh, and it’s value blows away the competition.

Sleeping on the right mattress can be like crawling into heaven each night. Its cloud-like soft and fluffy outer layers contour to your body with pressure-free support for a relaxing and restful sleep. But, did you know that the very materials that give your bed that amazing feel, could be harmful to your or your family’s long-term health?

According to mattress-guides.net, “A big percentage of mattresses in American households today is made up of a combination of petroleum-based nylon, polyester, press board, polyurethane foam and vinyl, and are treated with flame retardants of chemical origin like, phosphates, silicon, and boric acid. They are also sometimes wrapped in flame-resistant fibers like, polyvinylidene chloride and melamine.”

WHAT THE TAG DOESN’T TELL YOU

While these materials meet environment, health and safety standards, they have been proven to emit gasses that are anything but healthy and safe. For example, a study in 2005 discovered that “an average memory-foam mattress emits 61 unnatural chemicals, including carcinogens benzene and naphthalene.”

Off-gassing chemicals can irritate your eyes, throat, nose, and lungs, and have been linked to allergies, organ toxicity, and in some cases, cancer. Plus, these unnatural materials can be breading grounds for mold, mildew, and our friends—the bed bug and dust mite—that cause their own set of health problems in and of themselves.

Besides being unhealthy for you or your family, synthetic materials are not biodegradable which means the 50,000 mattresses that end up in our U.S. landfills each day will still be around long after their disposal.

THE ALL-NATURAL SOLUTION TO A HEALTHY SLEEP

Just like food and skincare products, an environmentally conscious mattress made of all-natural and organic materials is your best bet. While it is extremely rare that you’ll be able to find a truly 100% organic mattress*, you can find a mattress that is made of mostly organic materials, which will offer you the highest level of sustainable luxury.

If an organic mattress isn’t within your budget, beds made with button-tufted, breathable all-natural cotton, naturally fire-resistant, chemical-free wool, and natural latex made from the sap of a rubber tree, can provide you with the comfort and support you need and almost no chemical off-gassing—without the higher price tag.

BETTER FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY—AND OUR EARTH

In addition to the health benefits of a green mattress, a bed made of natural materials offers you more durability and resiliency than its synthetic counterpart, which means you’re less likely to “replace in 8” as is often recommended. Pair the finest non-toxic materials with double-sided construction and you’ve essentially just doubled the life and the comfort of your already longer-lasting mattress, keeping your hard-earned money in your pocket and your eco-friendly mattress out of our country’s landfills.**

As if that weren’t enough, natural materials provide excellent heat and moisture regulation and better air circulation. Plus, natural materials like Talalay latex are naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and dust mite resistant!

ORGANIC MATTRESS BUYER BEWARE

While there are mattresses on the market today that appear to be completely organic or eco-friendly, be sure to read the fine print—you may be paying for more “organic” than you’re actually getting. Or better yet, speak with a mattress expert first, to get the inside scoop on standard practices and terminology before you start your non-toxic mattress search. They’ll teach you what to look for and what to avoid, so you’re confident that the mattress you’ve selected is truly all natural and toxin-free, and will withstand the test of time.

WE DON’T COMPROMISE SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO

At Custom Comfort Mattress, being “green” is not a gimmick or fad—it’s a way of life. Your and your family’s comfort and health have been our highest priority for more than thirty years—well before buying organic was considered the thing to do. That’s why many of our double-sided mattresses have been handcrafted using locally sourced, all-natural or organic materials. And because we build our high-quality mattresses ourselves, we offer you the ability to transform any of our luxury mattress models into an organic or all-natural bed by replacing their standard materials with organic or all-natural alternatives.

Selecting a mattress can be a confusing and time-consuming task. The mattress maze of seemingly similar materials and features can leave you feeling overwhelmed and hopeless about picking the “right one” without spending hours upon hours of research online. With life pulling you in so many directions and vying for your valuable time, a one-size-fits-all solution may sound like a no-brainer.

But when buying a mattress, you’re investing in one of life’s greatest and most essential experiences—a good night’s sleep. Don’t you owe it to yourself to find a bed that will give you just that? Do your future self a favor and take the time to select a bed that provides you with the comfort and support needed for the sleep your hard-working self deserves, tonight, tomorrow night, and every night.

Easier said than done—we know. Shop confidently with these valuable tips on making your mattress buying process as painless, efficient and convenient as possible.

MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION

Talking with a mattress specialist can be the quickest and easiest way to get the information you need in the shortest amount of time. You’ll know they’re a true expert if they’re not only knowledgeable about mattress manufacturing—how mattresses are made, how the materials are processed, what to look for in a mattress, and what to avoid—but what that means for your body’s long term comfort. By taking into account your unique body shape and size, your sleeping habits and lifestyle, as well as any injuries or health concerns, a mattress expert can recommend the bed that’s the right fit for you and not anyone else.

But how do you know if the person you’re talking to is not just a sales person trying to get you to buy the most expensive bed on the showroom floor?

SHOP PRESSURE-FREE

Buying a mattress can be a big investment, that’s why it’s important to shop in a store that wants you to get the most bed for your hard-earned money. Engage with people that exhibit genuine concern for your comfort or well-being, rather than making the sale. The store representative should not only allow you, but encourage you, to spend at least 15 to 30 minutes on each bed so you can imagine what it would be like to sleep on that mattress every night. You’ll know if the person you’re talking to doesn’t have your best interest at heart if they rush the mattress selection process or pressure you to buy with today-only deals.

BUY FROM SOMEONE YOU TRUST

Remember—not all mattresses are created equal. No matter what type of bed you select, you should feel confident that what you think makes up your mattress is, in fact, true. Ask questions about its construction, materials, and the pros and cons of each. If a mattress company is transparent about their manufacturing practices and tells you what’s inside each mattress model, it means they value honestly and your personal sleep health is their highest priority.

YOUR COMFORT ALWAYS COMES FIRST

We genuinely care about your sleep and know how important it is to your overall health. That’s why Custom Comfort Mattress does our best to make your mattress buying experience easy, educational and most of all, comfortable.

Our on-site comfort consultants will teach you how a mattress is made (and why it matters to you), common (and sometimes unsatisfactory) industry practices you’ll want to know before you start your search, and tips on how you can start optimizing your sleep tonight. And best of all, you can shop in peace because we will never pressure you to buy now or rush the mattress selection process.

Take the guesswork out of selecting your next mattress by visiting one of our many Southern California locations, first. See our Locations page to find the one nearest you and make an appointment for your free, personalized sleep consultation to find your perfect mattress match.

At Custom Comfort Mattress, your comfort always comes first. But don’t take our word for it—listen to what our customers have to say: Read our reviews on Yelp.

The warm, moist air clings to your body as you lay in bed. Too hot for covers, you sprawl out over the sheets, doing anything you can to stay cool. You even tried putting your sheets in the freezer for goodness sakes—but nothing seems to do the trick. Your ears buzzing with heat, you stare at the ceiling, dreading the moment your alarm clock cruelly confirms you’ve endured yet another night without the sleep your body so desperately craves.

Ironically, the biggest factor in your inability to sleep might just be the very thing you thought would solve your sleep problems in the first place—your memory foam mattress. While it’s true that memory foam provides you with cushiony comfort by contouring to the shape of your body, that contouring can be a double-edged sword. Memory foam reacts to heat, so when you or your room is hot—you sink lower into it’s dense material, which creates less and less airflow and keeps you hot and sweaty all night long.

THE KEY TO COOLER SLEEP

Luckily, there are mattresses on the market that can give you the comfort you crave with the breathability you need to stay cool. The key is finding one that is made of mostly natural materials, not synthetic ones. Materials like all-natural cotton, Talalay latex and chemical-free wool provide you with excellent heat and moisture regulation, better air circulation, and slower heat absorption when faced with changes in ambient temperature.

ALL-NATURAL COTTON

All-natural cotton provides you with optimum air circulation when compared to synthetic fibers and foams common in most mattresses. Just like pajamas and bed linens, sleeping on a mattress made with lightweight and breathable cotton is going to help you get your coolest sleep, especially when you pair it with other natural materials like chemical-free wool and Talalay latex. (Learn more about the benefits of cotton HERE.)

CHEMICAL-FREE WOOL

“Wool?” you say. “Doesn’t wool make you hotter?” Surprisingly, no. Wool provides a high level of thermal comfort because it is an effective insulator; its natural crimp creates a microclimate that assists in regulating the temperature and humidity of the air around your body, providing you over six times the insulation of any textile fiber (source). On top of temperature regulation, wool is a natural fire repellant—making toxic and harmful chemical fire retardants completely unnecessary.

TALALAY LATEX

While most would believe that latex is a synthetic material, Talalay latex is predominantly made from the sap of a rubber tree. Due to its natural components, it captures less ambient hot or cool air than synthetic materials like memory or polyurethane foam, providing you a restful night’s sleep regardless of your room’s temperature. Plus, all-natural latex is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and dust mite resistant!

COOLER SLEEP IS NO DREAM

Stay cool with a breathable alternative to a hot foam mattress, with a bed from our Inspire Collection. This collection includes three, double-sided, coil-free mattresses with a 6″ medium-firm Talalay latex rubber core, offering you three levels of cushioning support for the highest quality sleep you deserve.

Visit your nearest Southern California showroom to take it for a “test sleep” or browse our natural mattress collections online at: https://customcomfortmattress.com/product-category/mattresses and start sleeping cooler, tonight.

Why Your Mattress Should Last 10 Years or More

When selecting a mattress, we’re sure that comfort is at the top of your list of priorities. But did you know that if you want your bed to retain a high level of comfort for several years, buying a mattress that you can flip is your best bet?

Why? A mattress crafted with comfort layers on both sides balances out the wear pattern. When flipped and spun regularly, the just-slept-on side is given a chance to flatten out. No more “sleep trench!” With a “no-flip” bed, you sleep on only one side of the mattress, never giving the comfort layers a chance to even out.

Some may tell you that double-sided mattresses are no longer produced because of “new technology” that doesn’t need flipping. Yet the truth is, many companies only offer “no flip” versions because they cost less to manufacture and wear faster, ensuring you’ll be buying a mattress again in no time.

However, not all two-sided mattresses are alike. The materials used to construct the bed will also affect its comfort and longevity. The biggest expense in making a mattress is in the outermost layers, and they are also the part of the mattress that wear out the fastest. That’s why the best companies use natural materials, such as latex, cotton and wool, which don’t break down like toxic polyurethane foam.

Natural fibers also provide excellent regulation to keep you cooler, better air circulation, and are naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and dust mite resistant—providing a healthier sleep for you and your family. Pair that with a double-sided mattress and you’ve got a bed that is sure to provide greater comfort, support and resilience for years to come.
