Memory Foam Pillow – Avoid Fungi

Dust mites, fungi, allergens….we’d never go to sleep if we thought too hard about them, which is why you should invest in a memory foam pillow. 

If you thought about the millions of ugly, skin-feeding critters that lived in your pillow, you wouldn’t want to put your head near it, let alone snuggle down for a good night’s sleep. The memory foam pillow is made of material that is dust-mite resistant and can help give you peace of mind as well as comforting your body and supporting your neck.

Pillows can harbour harmful fungi  

A scientific report showed that it’s more likely that we’re counting fungi rather than sheep when we are tossing and turning at night. If you don’t have a memory foam pillow, than you might want to put your mind to work on this – the average pillow is host to 16 types of different potentially-harmful fungi.

Memory foam pillow helps you relax 

The Allergy Journal reported that its researchers found synthetic versions made from conventional fibre had the most species, which is why more people are turning to the memory foam pillow. It isn’t just a horrible thought to be sleeping on fungi, it can be harmful too – some of the fungus can exacerbate asthma, which can be a potentially fatal condition.

Fungi in the environment 

Although fungi occur in most environments, it should be addressed if you do suffer from asthma or allergies. The spores feed of human skin and dust mite faeces. Some scientists advise people to disinfect their pillows, or buy a memory foam pillow which can help reduce the risks of allergens.

Invest in a memory foam pillow 

Some of the pillows analysed had a ‘substantial fungal load’ which lets face it, doesn’t sound very nice. But on average, four to sixteen different species could be in your pillow. Some of which can invade the lungs and sinuses which is bad news for asthma sufferers and could even cause infection in leukaemia and bone marrow transplant patients.

Miniature ecosystems 

Dust mites are commonly known to exist in mattresses and there are products such as dust mite resistant mattresses available, such as the memory foam mattress. But pillows are just as vulnerable, and it’s worth investing in a memory foam pillow. The researchers proved that our bedrooms can be habitats that encourage miniature ecosystems!
