One sleepless night may not seem like a big deal, but what if it becomes many? Without sleep, you lose energy, your health suffers, and the quality of your day-to-day life suffers. Gel memory foam is a soft, durable solution that can help you get back the quality sleep you've been missing. These products -- pillows, mattress toppers, and mattresses -- provide comfort and support to help with several sleep-related problems.
All the benefits of traditional memory foam: Just like the memory foam products you've heard about for years -- and maybe even use -- gel memory foam is durable and comfortable. It also resists motion transfer, so when your bed partner moves around or gets in and out of bed, it won't disturb your slumber.
Increased air circulation: Gel memory foam is made of gel beads that are infused into memory foam, and this creates an open cell structure that promotes air movement. The heat from your body dissipates instead of collecting in your mattress, topper, or pillow. This helps you maintain a cool, comfortable temperature all night.
Balanced support: Gel memory foam provides a firm yet comfortable sleep surface. It fits to your body without letting you sink in too deeply, a concern that some users of traditional memory foam products have. Gel memory foam products are designed with extra support where you need it, so you'll have just the right amount of contact.
Pressure relief: Side sleepers often have issues with pressure on their hips and shoulders while they sleep. The pressure on these points causes the tossing and turning that can keep you from getting good, continuous sleep. Gel memory foam gently cradles your body, so painful pressure points are eliminated, relieving pressure points that traditional mattresses may aggravate.
Spinal alignment: When your body is cradled correctly and the pressure has been taken off your shoulders and hips, your spine is encouraged to align. When your back feels good in the morning, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated from your night's sleep.
Something for every sleeper: No matter what has been keeping you up at night, there's a gel memory foam product that can help.
If neck pain is your constant battle, consider trying a gel memory foam pillow.
If you wake up uncomfortably hot during the night, you would benefit from using both a gel memory foam pillow and a gel memory foam mattress or topper.
