We all want to live healthy and make sure that we sleep well too, but sometimes it can be very hard to do that without the proper tools at your disposal. This is why you should always try to find the best mattress on the market! With that in mind, which is the best option, a spring based or a memory foam one?




Spring Mattresses


These are mattresses that are maybe the least expensive out there and they do give an illusion of comfort, but as you can expect there are a few issues with them. They don’t offer a very good pressure point relief and that translates into a very bad sleep posture and plenty of problems as you sleep. That is not ok at all considering the situation, and since this type of mattress doesn’t promote a good blood circulation either, it can actually harm you. 


Pros and cons:


Spring mattresses are, as we mentioned earlier, inexpensive and that means you will have to deal with low costs all while obtaining some great durability. It’s a neat investment if you think from this perspective. On the other hand, you get a loss of support, there warranties on the higher end spring mattresses that may help you decide. If you clean and rotate them when needed they will last you and be an good investment.


Memory Foam Mattresses


Using memory foam for a mattress will allow you to get better support as you sleep. The pressure you have to deal with is lower and at the same time you will be able to move easier as you sleep while also getting complete support. This is by far the best option you have if you want to sleep better and maintain a good support while doing so.


Pros and cons:


Let’s start with the cons. Their price is not at all low, in fact getting such a mattress can prove to be very expensive and it’s something that you have to keep in mind if you want to get such a mattress. The feel can be similar to quicksand for some people depedning on firmness. Some people have had a smell but it does go away in time.


On the other hand, there are plenty of pros. The pressure distribution is very good, you don’t actually feel any motion transfer and they are also hypoallergenic.


There are combinations of memory foam and coil based mattresses, with them offering a better pressure distribution all while using coils to maintain a low cost. They are a good mid-range product but as you can expect they sacrifice some of the performance that comes from using memory foam by having coils.


Any of the mattress types that we mentioned are worth a try, all you have to do is to be willing to give them a shot. You will certainly appreciate the results that come from the entire experience.
