If you’re among the population (40% adult males or 24% adult females) who habitually snores you and your partner could be in the market for an easy solution to help you achieve silent restorative sleep.
That solution is as easy as sleeping in the “Zero Gravity Position.”
Zero Gravity Sleeping 101
Advanced state-of-the-art adjustable bases have perfected the zero gravity sleep simulation.
Zero gravity sleep settings mimic the position of astronauts during launch. It’s the ideal position to evenly distribute the intense pressure that’s applied to astronauts during liftoff.
Distributing your body’s natural weight this way has equal benefits when you’re home in bed.
Adjustable beds with the zero gravity functionality deliver the benefits of weightless sleep while simultaneously eliminating pressure points and stress on your body.
To achieve this sleep position you must first lay flat on your back. Then the adjustable base will raise your head and legs slightly above your heart and stomach.
#5 – Reduce Or Even Eliminate Snoring
Snoring generally happens when air cannot move freely through your nose and throat.
This prohibited flow causes the surrounding tissues to vibrate, which produces that all too familiar sleep-disturbing sound.
When sleeping in the zero gravity position your head is elevated which helps to open up any restricted airways.
Reducing or even eliminating snoring can help you enter the rapid eye movement (REM) sleep stage more often throughout the night.
This leads to more restorative sleep for both you and your partner.
#4 – You Can Actually Improve Your Overall Heart Health
Sleeping in the zero gravity position can remove pressure from the heart.
This reduction of pressure allows better blood flow throughout your entire body.
#3 – Reduce Swelling, Naturally
For those who have high blood pressure or carry extra body weight elevating the legs can help to naturally reduce swelling while simultaneously promoting proper blood circulation.
According to the Vein Institute of New Jersey, elevating your legs “takes the pressure off your leg veins….and undoes the pressure of the day by giving your veins a break for a few hours as blood flow moves away from the legs and courses through the rest of your body.”
#2 – Some Find Relief In Acid Reflux
While in the zero gravity position your torso is slightly tilted in an upward position which has been found to help reduce or even eliminate indigestion.
In fact, in a recent study, sleepers who suffered both acid and non-acid reflux found rapid clearing once the head was in an elevated position.
#1 – Improved Relaxation Of Sore Muscles
Whether you suffer from chronic lower back pain or simply overdid it during your last workout, zero gravity can bring relief to your neck area, arms, legs and back.
“Patients with back pain are advised to use adjustable beds. A flatbed may not provide the proper support for the spinal cord, resulting in excess back pain and restless sleep. Inclining the bed at 45 degrees provides relief for the lower back. By raising the foot of the bed relieves even more pressure on the spine, which raises the legs and bends the knees. Patients having low back surgery feel an adjustable bed is far more comfortable than a flatbed.” – Proper Spinal
