The Benefits of a Copper-Infused Mattress

Aside from being used to make mugs for Moscow mules or serve as the one-cent coin, Copper is an essential nutrient for our bodies. It’s an important trace mineral that’s necessary for a range of bodily functions. Copper is naturally found in all body tissue and plays an important role in the production of red blood cells, maintaining nerve cells, and supporting the immune system. This important mineral has countless health benefits yet we often overlook them. You can typically get the copper your body needs by eating a variety of foods or taking supplements, but there is another effortless way to incorporate this crucial element into your lifestyle. Mattresses infused with Copper are an excellent way to take advantage of the effects of Copper on the body. But how does it work? 

How Do Copper Infused Mattresses Work?

It’s fair to say that a Copper Mattress won’t have the same effects on the body as actually ingesting it. But mattress manufacturers have added Copper to foam and textiles to provide other types of benefits that you may find surprising. There are a few main reasons Copper has become a new part of mattress production: 


Obviously, the advantages you’ll get from sleeping on a Copper Mattress are completely different than how you’ll benefit from consuming it. Copper is known to be anti-inflammatory and aid in relief with certain medical conditions like poor blood circulation, osteoarthritis, and much more. But you can’t get those same benefits from a mattress and it has never been proven. So, let’s take a closer look at the true perks you’ll get by investing in this remarkable new technology.   


For those of you who sleep hot, you may be wondering why you’d want a heat conductor built into your mattress. But, surprisingly it has quite the opposite effect on a mattress. Just because Copper provides superior thermal conductivity, doesn’t mean that it actually retains heat. Instead, as your body warms the mattress, heat is passed through the Copper quite quickly. And, therefore, evenly dispersing heat particles todissipate them away from the body. The super-conductive pathways in Copper-Infused foam allows excess body heat to escape faster. You’ll sleep cooler and more comfortable on a Copper Mattress than you ever have before. 

An excellent example of a mattress developed with cooling Copper technology is the R12 Smart Bed by Personal Comfort. The R12 comes with copper infused directly into the foam. Some mattresses weave the copper threads into the textile fibers, but either way, you’ll see a huge difference in your sleeping temperatures. Another added bonus with the R12 is its patented seasonal top-cover. This unique cover brings a new element to keeping you cool at night with one side designed to neutralize temperatures and the other side made for eliminating moisture. The R12’s seasonal top-cover combined with copper’s conductive properties will help wick away body heat and keep you cool all night long, 


When you climb into bed at night, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is how your mattress could become an unhealthy breeding ground for dust mites and bacteria. Using a mattress protector can help ward off microbes and allergens, but what if your mattress could also aid in helping prevent a buildup of bacteria. Copper adds anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties to your mattress to repel unwanted microbes from bonding with the textiles. Copper naturally inhibits and eliminates the growth of these tiny beings.So, when copper is used in mattresses, it creates an antiviral and antibacterial environment which is a great advantage for those who suffer from allergies or are sensitive to chemicals used to treat some mattresses.

Whether you're allergy-prone or not, sleeping on a copper-infused mattress is incredibly beneficial when it comes to protecting yourself from harmful viruses and bacteria. And, a clean mattress means less bacterial build-up which contributes to a longer lifespan for your mattress. The Copper Lux Mattress by BedTech is made with a silky cooling phase-changing outer cover followed by copper-infused memory foam. With a combination ofcooling properties, the Copper Lux will regulate temperatures while you sleep for the coolest night’s sleep ever. And, the benefits of copper will keep you enjoying your Copper Lux bacteria-free for many years to come.


The key to a good night’s sleep is pressure relief. Ideal pressure relief happens when your body is in perfect spinal alignment. Keeping the spine aligned means you’ll sleep with optimum blood flow and wake up feeling refreshed instead of achy and sore. This is where Copper can be a game-changer for sleepless nights. When Copper is infused into a mattress it helps to slightly soften the foam in response to body heat. This creates a sleeping surface that’s highly adaptive to the contours of your body even during movement. You’ll experience ultimate pressure relief with a mattress that can adapt to your every curve.  

One mattress brand that reigns supreme when it comes to ultimate adaptability and pressure point relief is Personal Comfort. All the mattresses in their new Rejuvenation Series come equipped with all the benefits of copper.
