Why are good mattresses so important?

During the night not only the mind but also the body regenerates. The brain processes the impressions of the day and decides which memories, for example, need to be stored for the learning process. At the same time, all muscles relax, with the exception of the organs, which are essential for life support. However, an undisturbed night's rest can not only reduce stress. The organism can also carry out minor repairs to muscle groups and cells. This helps to maintain or restore mobility and health in the long term. By a healthy and undisturbed sleep, the person is fit again the next morning for the demands of work and leisure.

Not all mattresses are the same
The range of high-quality mattresses available in the trade is large. Many manufacturers promise that their products can prevent back pain and thus promote health thanks to the modern materials. However, in order to be able to remain permanently high-performing for work and leisure time, it is important to get mattresses into your home that are exactly tailored to your personal needs.

Because not every article is equally suitable for every user. And a mattress that is ideal for a family member can be completely unsuitable for the partner, for example. A mattress comparison can help to find the optimal product for his individual needs. When should you buy new mattresses?

Even high-quality mattresses do not last forever. In order to benefit from healthy sleep, you should change the mattresses in your home at the latest when:
inexpensive models are 5 to 8 years old
high-quality models are 10 to 14 years old
a recumbency has developed (the development can be delayed by regular turning)
the model is worn out or shows other signs of age
the density is less than 30
for hygienic reasons after 5 years, if the cover is not washable

How to find a mattress that is optimally suited to you
Lassitude and back pain in the morning are the first signs that you are using an unsuitable mattress. In order not to endanger your health unnecessarily, it is now at the latest time to look for a new sleeping mattress. But what should you look out for when buying one? Ask yourself a few questions in advance. This makes the decision to buy easier.

1 Which lying feeling do you prefer?
Do you prefer your bed with a soft, medium or hard underlay? The higher the degree of hardness, the firmer the respective mattresses are. However, it is not only your feeling that should decide here. Your height and body weight also play a role. Because the bigger and/or heavier they are, the harder mattresses you should use for healthy sleep. Mattresses are divided into the hardness grades H2, H3 and H4.

2 Which sleeping position do you prefer?

The pressure points are different for the individual lying positions. Side sleepers need mattresses with an adaptable core. This allows them to adjust flexibly to the lower shoulder and pelvic positions. For back and stomach sleepers, on the other hand, a firmer base is important in order to prevent sagging of the middle part of the body and thus provide lasting support for the body.

3. do you sleep alone or do you have a partner?
Many beds offer the possibility of using a large mattress. This has the advantage that there is no annoying "visitor's gap". However, if the partner prefers a different degree of firmness, two single mattresses are more suitable.

4. are you allergic to house dust, mites etc.?

In this case the new mattress should either be washable or at least have a high-quality washable cover. This way the bed can be vacuumed regularly and the cover washed.
