Sleep is a highly active state consisting of a number of consecutive sleep cycles, each 90-100 minutes long.
As soon as a healthy relaxed person closes their eyes, Alpha waves can be registered on the brain. These are higher and slower than the Beta waves our brain produces when we are awake. Breathing and heart rate slow down, muscles relax.
During the Light Sleep stage the brain waves slow even further. During Deep Sleep our brain produces Delta waves. We are so fast asleep that we can only be woken up by very strong stimulus like loud noise or bright light. Muscles relax even further, healing, repair and tissue generation take place now as well as a number of vital metabolic and immune processes.
REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep is the stage when you store memories, process information, restore your nervous system and dream most vividly.
Chronic lack of sleep will severely impact our body's ability to regulate hormone levels, immune response and memory function.
We value sleep as one of your most precious resources for health and wellness. Sourcing our clean natural performance components from Europe allows us to provide chemically safe sleep systems with real function at a fair price. At the cornerstone of our design and philosophy is product performance.
Our team researches products worldwide, and selects components based on functionality, not cost. If a product doesn't meet our standards, we don't buy it. In order to achieve the necessary performance in our mattress design, we began to purchase components from European suppliers in 1995 where performance and certified purity are placed ahead of branding and marketing. We are now partnering with ten of the strongest, most reputable component manufacturers in Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and France. We believe this is the only way to provide you with consistently superior solutions.
We believe in an ethical approach to life and business, sustainability on all levels and long-term thinking.
