New research reveals the benefits that most people can derive from bio magnets (designed for the body). People who use this self-care approach can obtain relief from muscle aches, neck and shoulder pain, as well as from foot problems, among others. Sleeping on magnetic mattress pads is one way to benefit from magnets. However, there are certain things you should look for when purchasing magnetic mattress pads.
- Skill level:
Make sure that all the magnets in the pads are in the bio-north (also called North or Negative North) position for maximum magnetic therapy benefits. One way to identify this position is to look for an N or an arrow on the magnet. Additionally, some manufacturers colour code the bio-north pole on a magnet blue, green or white.
Choose magnetic mattress pads with Visco Foam, high compression foam developed by NASA. Visco foam is the highest rated foam for magnetic mattress pads.
Ensure that the pads have a thick layer of padding to ensure comfortable sleep. However, the padding thickness depends on your personal needs. Some people require more cushion than others do, and the wrong thickness can exasperate certain body aches. Choose the right magnetic mattress pad by lying on various pads and notice which one feels more comfortable.
Buy magnetic mattress pads made out of 100 per cent cotton to eliminate toxins from synthetic materials. The pad should have a non-skid backing and wide straps to keep it in place. Make sure that it will fit your existing mattresses.
