You’re making healthy decisions for you and your family every day. You put great food on the table, you make time for exercise, and you balance work with the things and people you enjoy most. But what are you doing to improve your health at night?
If you’ve established a solid sleep pattern of eight hours per night, you’re already one step ahead of many Americans. Numerous studies have confirmed that how we live in today’s 24/7 society directly effects how we sleep. According to WebMD, about 20% of Americans report that they get less than six hours of sleep on average. If you fall into this group and have yet to make sleep a priority, it’s time to get serious about your sleep goals.
But beyond the ideal sleep cycle, what else can be done to improve your sleep health? For answers, we turned to Dr. Phillip M. Tierno, Director of Clinical Microbiology & Immunology at New York University Langone Medical Center and author of the book, The Secret Life of Germs, who has been clinically testing our mattress and pillow protectors for nearly a decade.
“The accumulated quantities of allergens that build up in your mattress (and pillows) over time, like fungi, bacteria, dust mites, dander, and numerous other particulates, can lead to exacerbations of asthma and allergies or contribute to their development,” says Tierno. “A medical-quality mattress protector is the solution.” This is a powerful recommendation based on the fact that over 60 million Americans suffer from allergens and allergy-induced asthma.
Beyond Dr. Tierno’s clinical testing, our PureCare protectors also bear the exclusive seals of The National Sleep Foundation and the Women’s Choice Award. These two partnerships combined provide our customers with the sleep health and wellness information they crave along with the peace of mind of knowing that our protectors are used and recommended by health conscience consumers just like you.
