Copper is an essential nutrient in our body, that offers health benefits that allow you to recover faster from sporting activity and help reduce inflammation/arthritis. Not only is it beneficial for our bodies it also helps keep heat and germs away from your mattress. This is why we developed a way to include copper within our mattress topper. By including copper, we can offer a cool, clean and healthy sleeping environment that can fit on any mattress.
Here are 7 reasons why copper is the perfect addition to any bed
Copper is a Anti-inflammatory
Copper can reduce inflammation and arthritis due to it being essential in the formation of connective tissue in your body. Copper strengthens the support structures within you muscle system relieving you of sore and swollen joints. This helps reduce inflammation and arthritis think of how copper bracelets and copper socks help athletes with their joint pain.
Copper is Anti-Bacterial
Copper has anti-bacterial properties that help prevent bacteria from living inside your mattress. Copper prevents the growth of bacteria and various fungi which prevent orders from developing and keeping your memory foam mattress topper clean. With regular use any mattress can accumulate bacteria over a period of time, in fact mattresses that are under 1 year old can have as much as 3,000,000 bacteria while a mattress that is 5 years old can have up to 13,000,000 pieces of bacteria inside of the mattress. Now that is something to think about.
Copper is Anti-Microbial
Studies have shown that copper has both exceptional antimicrobial properties and offers beneficial effects when exposed to humans. For example, it is 1,000 times more lethal to the Flu virus than stainless steel, with a contact kill rate of 99.999999% per hour. Basically, no live organisms can survive on the surface of copper for prolong periods of time.
But how does this benefit the mattress topper?
When our copper infused foam is compressed the copper particles that where dispersed throughout the foam concentrate themselves and form an antimicrobial film close to the surface. This process amplifies the health benefits of the copper around you as you lay on top of the memory foam thus giving you a cleaner mattress and a peaceful night’s sleep.
Copper is SupportiveThe copper within the memory foam adds another level of support to your mattress. When copper particles are compressed within the memory foam the copper particles interact resulting in a firming response. The most compressed areas of the foam harden under your body weight to support your hips and shoulders, while the less compressed areas of the topper help align your spine for a better sleeping position.
Copper can improve blood flow by maintaining iron levels within your blood and reduce the buildup of lactic acid in your muscles. Also, copper is essential in forming collagen within your body which helps with the healing process for bones and connective tissue. this allows your body to recover fast for activity while you sleep at night.
Copper is conductive
Copper is one of the most conductive materials on earth, with a conductivity of up to 20,000 times higher than that of conventional polyurethane foam. When copper particles are placed within the cell structure of memory foam it allows heat to escape through convection resulting in a cooling effect. Overheating while sleeping is never good and it is recommended to be in a bedroom 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit. If your mattress is to hot it is literally fighting against you to get a better night’s sleep. A good example of how well copper can cool is getting a Moscow Mule. If you are drinking one you might notice that your drink stays cooler for longer compared to a conventional glass cup.
Make you look younger
As I mention to you before that copper is essential to from collagen. Well Collagen is essential to the production of the elastin that keeps your skin firm and youthful. It is particularly helpful if you drink out of a copper cup or flask because there will be trace elements of the copper ions in the water.
As you can see by adding copper to your bed, you will be able to reap the benefits of a clean, cool and comfortable night sleep. Copper is not only good for your health by being anti-bacterial/ anti-microbial but can also help with arthritis. Plus, it is the perfect addition for any bed that wants to be cooler and cleaner.
