Food, shelter, and clothing are said to be our basic needs. But there’s one other requirement that needs to make the list: sleep. Without it, our minds can’t function well and neither can our body. One of the factors that affect sleep quality is temperature. A cooler body temperature induces sleep faster and helps us sleep better. According to SleepRate, 33 percent of Americans lose sleep in summer due to warmer weather, and allergies. Out of this number, 70 percent say the higher temperature prevents them from getting good sleep.

What Happens When Your Body Gets Too Hot?

Overheating at night doesn’t just rob you of sleep. It can cause other problems including heat exhaustion and hyperventilation.

  • Heat exhaustion is a result of the body overheating, and if it doesn’t cool down quickly, it can lead to heat stroke, a life-threatening condition.
  • Hyperventilation is a condition where you breathe faster than normal. Carbon dioxide levels in the blood decrease and blood supply to the brain is reduced. In severe cases, loss of consciousness can occur.

Benefits of Having a Cooling Mattress

There are several ways to keep your body cool at night including staying hydrated, lowering the thermostat and keeping windows open in the evening etc. Investing in a temperature control mattress is another big step to keep your body cool at night.

1. It Doesn’t Retain Heat

An ordinary mattress that uses conventional foams tend to accumulate heat. When you sweat, the moisture remains on the surface and leaves you feeling sticky. On the other hand, a cooling mattress aims to disperse heat instead of trapping it. It does this by utilizing a gel layer or gel particles intermixed with the foam cell structure. Nuvanna uses the latest in cooling foam technology. It makes use of phase-changing gel particles that act as a heat sink to a liquid state when body heat is detected. It actively pulls heat away from you so that you sleep cooler and more comfortably.

2. It Can Help Manage Night Sweats

Night sweats can be incredibly uncomfortable. About 75 percent of women going through menopause and perimenopause suffer from it as do nearly 35 percent of pregnant women. Men with low levels of testosterone can experience it too.

If excessive sweating has you waking up at night, a mattress that keeps you cool may help. It’s designed to keep your body temperature cool so that you don’t sleep hot. You end up sweating significantly less since the mattress absorbs body heat and then disperses it instead of trapping it. You can make it part of your night sweats solution and combine it with others such as reducing your intake of alcohol, spicy foods, and caffeine etc.

3. It Can Help with Weight Loss by Boosting Your Metabolism

A study conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) shows that sleeping cool can actually help you lose weight by improving metabolic rate. It does this by increasing the volume of brown fat, which is good fat that burns calories, and insulin sensitivity. Your body temperature can be properly maintained by using a cooling mattress. Coupled with other solutions to keep cool such as turning down the thermostat, your metabolism could also get a boost!

4. You Can Enjoy Superior Comfort

Cooling mattresses provide better comfort whether you live in a region with a warm climate or just tend to sleep hot. They’re constructed of foam layers explicitly designed for cooling and support so that you get the best of both worlds. Nuvanna’s three-layered construction does the same by incorporating a gel layer, a motion-control layer, and a support layer to guarantee superior comfort. It eliminates painful pressure points and keeps your spine naturally aligned to reduce the risk of back pain. The brainchild of an expert with over two decades of industry experience, Nuvanna provides comfort for different weights, sizes, and sleep positions.

5. It’s Environmentally-Friendly

We put a lot of thought into buying organic foods and using cosmetics with little or no harmful ingredients. Why shouldn’t we do the same with our mattresses? While not all cooling mattresses are necessarily environmentally-friendly, there’s a solid selection of those that are, including Nuvanna. It incorporates a TENCEL cover, which is a fabric that’s botanically. It’s breathable, much cooler than linen and also wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable. In addition, all foams are Certi-PUR-US certified which means, 100% of foams meet stringent standards for content, emissions, and durability, and are analyzed by independent, accredited testing laboratories.

6. A Few More Tips

There are other ways to stay cool in addition to using a cooling mattress. You can take a tepid shower right before bed to lower your body temperature. Sleeping in lightweight clothes can also keep you cool by absorbing moisture. You should also try to exercise in the morning or late afternoon so that your body has enough time to return to its normal temperature when night falls.

Sleeping cool has numerous benefits including reducing insomnia and improving melatonin production that brings about sleep. A small study conducted by the National Institutes of Health even suggests that it could reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. If you’ve been losing out on sleep because it’s just too hot, it’s time to invest in a mattress like Nuvanna to keeps you cool and comfortable.
