Latex has so many health benefits! From being naturally anti-microbial and anti-fungal to not releasing VOCs (volatile organic compounds), latex has so many clear perks!
VOCs are gaseous compounds that come from 'off-gassing. Usually, the culprits are new memory foam mattresses.
These chemicals can have a range of negative health effects. From nose, eye, and throat irritation, to the slightly worse ongoing headache and nausea, to rare, damage to the liver and central nervous system, VOCs are hardly anything you want in your household. Especially if any of your household members are a vulnerable population, such as a child, the elderly, or anyone with a compromised immune system.
Latex mattresses are increasingly popular for their extreme comfort and durability, not to mention their eco-friendly design! Latex is an all-natural material, completely biodegradable and chemical-free!
Instead of off-gassing, latex mattresses give off a pleasant, natural smell, one many say is reminiscent of fresh vanilla! A far more pleasant smell than harmful chemicals!
The health benefits associated with sleeping on latex are uncountable, but simply the absence of VOCs is beneficial enough for many!
