5 Health Benefits of Adjustable Bases
Are adjustable bases worth it? Comfort is knowing they’re totally worth it.
Are adjustable bases worth it? Absolutely! Who are adjustable bases best suited for? Anyone who wants a more luxurious, comfortable bedtime routine and the benefits that come from more customized support.
Many used to believe that adjustable mattresses were only for older people or those with back problems – at least that’s what the late night infomercials implied. But adjustable bases have come a long way since then with advanced features that benefit every sleeper.
Adjustable bases allow you to:
- Customize your comfort to your unique preferences
- Read or journal comfortably as part of a healthy bedtime routine
- Relax with pre-set lounge positions or pamper yourself with silent massage settings (on select Serta® adjustable base models)
Beyond comfort, adjustable bases offer 5 major health benefits with the list growing as technologies continue to advance.
5 Health Benefits of Adjustable Bases*
1. Ease back, neck and shoulder pain
An adjustable base allows sleepers to adjust the height of the head and feet. When you elevate the head and feet, you can reduce pressure on your lower back. This helps your muscles relax at night, so you can wake up with less pain.
2. Improve circulation
Sleeping with your feet and head elevated can also help improve blood flow throughout your body. When more blood flows to your muscles, this can help reduce tossing and turning, giving you a deeper and more restorative sleep.
3. Reduce acid reflux
For those who suffer from acid reflux or heartburn, bedtime can be uncomfortable. By lying flat, stomach acids can travel up the esophagus causing pain and discomfort. Experts recommend raising your head 6-8 inches. An adjustable base can be a great solution for chronic heartburn and acid reflux sufferers.
4. Reduce snoring
Does your partner complain about your snoring? Or does your partner’s snoring keep you up at night? Elevating the head can help improve air flow by reducing obstructions in the airways. This can also benefit apnea and asthma sufferers.
5. Improve Digestion
When you sleep, your body continues to digest and process food in your stomach. By elevating your head by 6 inches, you can improve your body’s ability to process food, allowing for improved digestion, less wakefulness, and more restful deep sleep.
