How Copper Helps You Sleep

How Copper Helps You Sleep

More than we may realize, copper (yes, the same stuff that pennies are made of) serves a lot of purposes in the world around us. That’s because this amazing element has some truly outstanding natural properties. And guess what? Turns out those properties can do some pretty revolutionary things for your sleep. So move aside pipes and electrical wiring! Copper’s found a new home nestled into our marshmallowy soft Zinus memory foam.

Why copper?

Our reputation of crafting toppers and mattresses with natural ingredients that promote better, sounder, more restorative sleep is one we’re quite proud of. From green tea to charcoal to olive oil, we’re fanatics about finding natural additives that put your mind and body at ease. Because of this wholesome philosophy, copper is a no-brainer.

Thermal conductivity - why your bed needs it

While your body winds down for the night, it begins to cool to start the process of powering down. And if your body temperature is too warm, your ability to fall and stay asleep can be affected. Enter copper, the heat conductive magnet that sucks up and whisks away your excess body heat. And in addition to promoting sounder sleep, the more comfortable feeling copper leaves you with has a trickle-down effect. For one, your mattress and bedding will no longer absorb the extra sweat produced from overheating (and psychologically, you’ll feel better knowing what’s not left behind). And less sweat means no lingering odors. Cooler, dryer and less offensive to your nose - we call that a great start.

Pretty impressive, right? So it only makes sense to infuse this dynamic element with what we do best at Zinus - creating soft-as-a-cloud memory foam. And that’s exactly what we’ve done.
