Recently, there are many Canadian companies offering weighted blankets for Canadian consumers. These new blankets weight between 10 to 25 pounds in different size and designs.
Sleeping under the weighted blanket gives the user the same feeling of getting hugged or gently squeezed. That feeling makes you relaxed and de-stressed. The weight also stimulates Deep Pressure Points, which stimulates serotonin release from the brain. Serotonin turns into melatonin – the sleep hormone - in the body.
Weighted Blankets are mainly marketed for sleep deprivation and insomnia sufferers in Canada. Different sleep problems and insomnia are effecting 20- 30% of adult Canadians. But also, it is reaching epidemic levels among young Canadians and students. Long term sleep deprivation at young age is one of the most common reason leading to Mental Health problems. Mental Health issues are increasing in alarming levels among Canadians too.
Weighted Blankets are proven by many trials to improve the sleep quality and quantity. Falling into the sleep gets easier and lasts longer under weighted blankets. Users feel more relaxed and energized in the morning.
Canadians with Mental Health issues can use the weighted blankets as the blankets are also helpful for depression, anxiety, autism and ADD. Many Canadian Doctors are now recommending weighted blankets to their patients as a complementary remedy. The blankets can be used as safe and effective sleep aids or relaxants.
As other developed countries, Canada has high rate of autism and ADD, ADHD in pediatric age group. These children feel calm and relaxed under weighted blankets during the day or during their sleep. ADD sufferers with too much movements during their sleep can also sleep better under weighted blankets.
To create the weight of the blanket, some Canadian sellers use plastic pellets, some others use glass beads. Our company’s BB Weighted Blankets stands out by being the only weighted blanket filled with bio-ceramic beads in Canada.
BB Weighted Blankets have many good features which are not available among other Canadian weighted blankets.
Some Canadian weighted blankets have a layer between fabrics simply filled with the plastic or glass material. The weight shifts from one part to other part of the blanket when user moves during the sleep. However, the weight of BB Weighted Blankets are distributed evenly throughout the blanket, so the movement of the user during the sleep doesn’t cause any weight shift. The movement during the sleep doesn’t bring any discomfort. There is also additional aromatherapy feature added to adult-size BB Weighted Blankets.
BB Weighted Blankets are invented by a Canadian doctor and patented in Canada. The fabric of these blankets carries special minerals with Far Infrared Rays (FIR), which bring many extra benefits to Canadian buyers.
The filler material, bioceramic beads, also carry FIR emitting minerals and boost the good effect of the fabric. With the combination of health fabric and FIR emitting minerals, the electro-magnetic signals can get blocked by the blankets and they don’t penetrate to the body. This is another good benefit from BB Weighted Blankets, they protect the body from EMF’s harmful effect during the sleep.
Because of this protection, BB Weighted Blankets are especially recommended for sleep-deprived teenager Canadians. These age group of Canadians spend too much time with their cell phones, tablets and computers. Their sleep is compromised due to high exposure to wireless signals, blue lights, EMF. They also get less physical activity and less sunlight exposure than previous generations, which can negatively affect their sleep and mental health.
BB Weighted Blankets are the best choice for both children and adults in Canada. With many additional benefits comparing with other Canadian weighted blankets, BB Weighted Blankets stand out in the Canadian market, especially when compared to other weighted blankets of the same price range. They are the best Canadian-made weighted blankets for the value of your money.
