When you sleep under a weighted blanket, it acts like a massager and creates deep touch pressure effect on your body. Under the weight of the blanket, you also feel like you are hugged, which creates calming effect. As response to these two effects from heavy blanket, brain releases serotonin hormone. Serotonin is known as “happiness hormone” and turns to melatonin, the sleep hormone. The relaxation effect of the weighted blanket leads to better quality sleep.
Clinical trials have proven that weighted blankets can help for insomnia or sleep deprivation and improve many health conditions. Additionally, studies reported that weighted blankets ease anxiety, depression and improve memory. They are also suitable for autism, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorders in children.
Our patented weighted blankets don’t use plastic or glass beads to create weight. We use bio-ceramic beads which have natural minerals with far infrared energy. Therefore health benefits of weighted blankets are enhanced with added FIR in our BB weighted blankets and pads.
