Quality sleep is important as food and one of the basic needs of our body. Mental disorders, body aches, and many other ailments are some common outcomes of being deprived of a deep and sound sleep. During the past few years, a lot of research has been done to make human sleep better. In fact, this process of making human sleep safe and better is quite evolutionary and has seen several changes with the passage of time. This process has not come to an end yet, as almost every other day we notice some new developments in this field.
There was a time when humans would sleep on the ground, but soon they realized it wasn’t very comfortable and also they used to sleep under the shadow of a fear of being mauled by animals. Then, came a time when humans started to sleep in large trees, but it wasn’t very comfortable and falls were quite frequent. Then they found caves as a good option to sleep, but they realized hard or sometimes wet ground couldn’t offer a comfortable and cozy time to rest after a toilsome day of hunting. Then came a time when they felt the need of keeping their bodies warm in harsh winters and they used animal skins for this purpose. The use of animal skins for sleeping brought a revolution and after some time, humans realized that there were some other materials that could make their sleep extremely comfortable and this was the start of the use of hay, leaves and feathers as sleeping materials.
Now in this age or highly developed ergonomic technologies we have several options to make our sleep really peaceful. Even in mattresses, you will find an array of material and pattern choices. Foam, cotton, water, unused clothes, beans, fluff, hay, rubber and latex are some common materials that being used for mattress making.
Different people prefer different materials for their mattresses, but one of the most popular choices of materials in mattresses nowadays is latex.
