A good mattress can alleviate Insomnia and Sleep Apnea issues!

Many people suffer from sleep issues of one kind or another. The most common of these is simply not sleeping enough or experiencing body aches and pains from sleeping on a bad mattress. We have written many articles covering all the ways that one can improve one’s quality of sleep through having better sleeping habits, a better sleeping environment and sleeping on a good mattress, but some people sadly suffer much more serious sleep issues.

These would be issues like Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, Restless Leg Syndrome and snoring constantly to name the most common ones. Many people question the ways that they can find relief from these sleep issues and although they mostly cannot be fully cured without some form of medical attention you may be surprised to know that the mattress that you sleep on can greatly assist with many of them.

So, how exactly does this work? Let’s have a look into two of these issues and how a good mattress can alleviate Insomnia and Sleep Apnea issues


Insomnia, or a consistent lack of sleep, is probably the most common of these serious sleep issues and is suffered by millions at some stage in their lifetime. Two of the prominent causes of this are stress, which creates the inability to ‘switch off’ when going to bed, and feelings of bodily discomfort when trying to sleep. 

A good mattress offers superior comfort, thereby minimising the first issue by promoting more peaceful sleep which in turn reduces stress hormones and boosts melatonin which can also increase energy in the day.

Regarding the second cause, it is well known that a good mattress also offers superior postural support to your back, neck, spine, and legs, keeping your spine straight and allowing your joints to relax.

Sleep Apnea

Firstly, for the uninitiated what is Sleep Apnea? One definition puts it this way – “Sleep Apnea is a common sleep disorder characterised by pauses or disruptions in breathing throughout the night. These respiratory disruptions prevent restorative REM and deep sleep stages.

The two types of this sleeping disorder are ‘’Obstructive Sleep Apnea’’ – caused by a blockage of the airway and ‘’Central Sleep Apnea’’ – caused by a miscommunication between the brain and muscles that control breathing.

Once again Sleep Apnea does require medical diagnosis and treatment but the right bedding that gives more sleeping comfort can greatly help to minimise these annoying breathing disruptions that wake someone constantly.

Secondly, because the best sleeping position for sleep apnea is sleeping on one’s side which optimises your sleep setup, the design and materials of some mattresses can improve the alignment of the spine when in this position, which relieves pressure and allows for improved airflow circulation.

Consider only the best!
