Egyptian Cotton Bed Linen-Why It Is The Healthiest Bed Linen For You

December 30th, 2010

Did you know that the average adult will spend between 2555 to 2920 hours asleep every year? This means that as much as 121 days out of each year are spent in a sleeping state. A certain amount of sleep is vital for good health and in order to sleep well a person needs to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Choosing natural, quality bed linen such as Egyptian Cotton Bed Linen can help people sleep better and therefore help their overall health.

Egyptian Cotton Bed Linen is made from Egyptian Cotton, which comes from an extra long staple cotton, produced in Egypt and used by luxury and upmarket brands worldwide. The cotton which comes from these plants with extra long staples has an extremely high quality due to its higher thread count.

The thread count refers to the amount of horizontal and vertical threads in a square inch of fabric. The higher the thread count, the softer the bed linen will be on the skin. Cottons with a high thread count also last longer. When you lie in a bed dressed with Egyptian Cotton for the first time you will notice a remarkable, sensuous difference. In fact once you have experienced this it’s unlikely you would enjoy sleeping in lower quality cotton or other fabrics.

Mother Nature has given made cotton to be a more breathable, softer and smoother fabric. Cotton is easy to wash and quality cotton bed linen helps peaceful sleep all year round, being cooling in summer heat and holding a layer of heat during cold weather. It becomes softer when washed repeatedly and is known to be kinder to the skin.

When you lie in an extra comfortable bed there is that feeling of being nurtured and safe. Your senses will tell you very quickly about this comfort. The skin is the largest organ of the human body and responds to the touch and feel of all it interacts with, so when it encounters something natural and of the highest quality it sends pleasurable messages to the brain. Imagine the delight of lying down on Egyptian Cotton sheets which have just been washed and smell and feel delicious.

This is the recipe for a wonderful night’s sleep. As you sleep your body is repairing any damage caused by stress, any harmful exposures and UV rays. As you sleep your body is busy producing more protein which is the building blocks for cells.

Regular healthy sleep can keep your heart healthier and it may even help prevent cancer. Quality sleep reduces stress, inflammation and makes you more alert. A process called sleep consolidation happens as you sleep where connections are made between events, feelings, memories and sensory input. More quality sleep can help you remember things and process events and situations better.

Sleep also has an effect on the production of chemicals in your body, such as serotonin. If a person has a deficiency in serotonin they are more likely to suffer from depression, however by getting quality sleep of between seven and nine hours per night this can be balanced.

You know the difference between the feeling of waking up after a refreshing night’s sleep or waking up after a disturbed night’s sleep, but maybe you had forgotten how important quality sleep can be in terms of your health. I have made the switch to Egyptian Cotton bed linen a few months ago and it has helped me get a better quality of sleep.
