ADVANTAGES OF SAMINA
The SAMINA Sleep System is essentially the eco mattress health nuts choose for their bed because it offers plenty of health benefits. From back pain to allergies, the SAMINA system is much more than just an eco mattress and has advantages for everyone looking to upgrade their sleep. The products we produce are all unique one-offs. Each individual slat made from pliant ash is tested for quality and carefully integrated without glue. Each topper, each blanket and each pillow is filled by hand and finished by sewing an elaborate cross stitch to hold the wool in place and prevent bunching and balling. This also prevents cold bridges, or gaps, from inflexible lock-stitch seams.
SAMINA can effectively reduce or eliminate back pain associated with a lack of support in bed. Many of our customers decided to make the investment because of their own back issues ranging from post-surgical pain to injuries and accidents, weight gain, and ordinary stresses from extended sitting in office chair, standing, walking and the effects of aging eventually felt by us all.The patented slat system contours to your spine supporting its natural shape all night long. Why is this important? Think about it. When we stress our bodies into unnatural shapes or positions, we tend to suffer consequences. (Ladies, think about the effects wearing high heels and the painful consequences of stressing your feet into unnatural form.) A bed with no back support can actually cause problems where there were none in the first place. On average, you spend about 7 to 9 hours nightly in bed and this can represent long-term stress on your back. The products we produce are all unique one-offs made in same design but with hand-selected wood slats. The SAMINA slats are a game changer.
We all sweat as part of our natural detoxification especially when we sleep. SAMINA has an open-air design like no other bed. With open air circulation, breathable layers and materials including natural wool fibers, the right conditions exist to help you sleep dry and not have your sleep disrupted due to sweating. According to the results of a study conducted by the University of Leeds, wool bedding helps normalize sleepers’ temperature noticeably more than feather, down or polyester fibers. The humanely harvested wool used exclusively in SAMINA bedding products is the sweaty sleepers answer to overheating while sleeping.
We describe this phenomenon as “self-regulating” because two different people sharing the same bed and bedding can maintain their individual body temperatures and sleep more comfortably. In our experience, many couples suffer a classic conflict over temperature in bed and SAMINA’s wool bedding materials help couples sleep together in harmony again.
As a leading sleep scientist and medical doctor, Professor Dr. William C. Dement of Stanford University declared that up to 90% of our health depends on our sleep. Researchers have repeatedly pointed out that our civilized sleeping and bed culture, especially the horizontal sleeping position, may be a major cause of a number of health disorders and diseases. Studies have shown that sleep deprivation has the same diminishing effects on your immune system as physical stress or illness which and by now, most people are aware of the benefits of a good night’s rest for the health of their immune system, stress management, and illness prevention. However, most people are unaware of the detoxification benefits from healthy sleep. Recent research has suggested that the brain flushes out toxins during sleep. According to the National Institutes of Health, “sleep changes the cellular structure of the brain.” The space between brain cells increases during sleep, allowing the brain to flush out toxins that accumulate during waking hours. Flushing out these toxins has many positive effects, such as decreasing your risk of heart disease and lowering your blood pressure. According to Dr. Mercola, proper sleep can aide people who suffer from chronic diseases such as, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Gastrointestinal tract disorders, Kidney disease, and even behavioral problems in children. The natural products of the entire healthy sleep product line by SAMINAwere developed with this singular mission in mind: to help promote health while sleeping. But SAMINA has even gone further by using new technology with SAMINA’s GRAVITY Inclined Bed. The GRAVITY Inclined Bed enhances detoxification and regeneration. Click here read more.
Where you sleep is what you breathe. Are you sleeping in a chemical factory or fresh mountain air? SAMINA is handcrafted in the Vorarlberg mountains in Austria where the air is clean and pure. The production center is spotless and the lack of machinery assures the purity of the natural and organic materials used in every SAMINA healthy sleep product from Austria to your bedroom. We have uncompromisingly high purity standards and the lack of petrochemicals and other irritants abundant in most mattresses but absent in SAMINA is already certain to help you breathe better. Beyond that, the system is “self-cleaning” with its open-air design and breathability of materials so that moisture does not remain trapped inside but simply evaporates into the ambient air. A dry bed is less prone to grow uninvited guests like dust mites, mold, bacteria, and smelly mildew. Furthermore, the high content of lanolin in SAMINA’s wool is a natural deterrent to dust mites that colonize in the deep materials and synthetic covers of conventional mattresses. Noteworthy (and totally gross) is the fact that dust mite fecal matter is a widespread human irritant and allergen. So if you have any kind of breathing difficulty or you find yourself congested or itchy when you wake up, consider your bed the culprit. SAMINA sleepers collectively report sleeping better and breathing better.
The unique double-slatted, freely suspended wood slat frame not only perfectly contours to each sleeper’s own spine providing optimal support but also lends itself to unique customization.
For example, a man with extremely broad shoulders often finds discomfort when sleeping on his side. Our Shoulder Bolster can be added in place of several slats to soften this zone of the bed and bring comfort to side sleeping.
There are a number of other adjustments that can be made depending on the individual and even better, only one side may be changed leaving the other sleeper unaffected by the modifications.

You may be someone who is aware of how awfully inhumane the majority of the wool growers treat their sheep. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and celebrities like Pink have long advocated to improve the conditions and practices the wool industry utilizes which, in our opinion, are barbaric.
We do not condone these practices and only use animal-friendly wool. It’s hand-processed, which means humanely hand-shorn, hand-washed, and then hand-combed into layers.
Made from the purest virgin sheep’s wool, SAMINA uses wool filling in the bedding, as well as pillows and wool pad toppers. Not only are the products made from the purest virgin sheep’s wool, but used from free-roaming, pesticide-free, living sheep.
SAMINA is proud to maintain a zero-carbon footprint from sourcing through production in Europe. In addition to various European certifications, we are also a Green America Certified Business, which assures you that our materials are sustainable (like our eco mattress), our sheep’s wool humanely shorn, and our production processes sensitive to the environment. One of the biggest challenges we face in our business is helping clients rid themselves of old conventional mattresses to replace with their new SAMINA Sleep System. Try finding a charity to pick up a used mattress? Unlike our eco-friendly mattress, conventional mattresses from the cheap ones to the expensive luxury brands are almost all made with synthetic materials, drenched in flame retardants, include materials with health-compromising phthalates, metal springs and petrochemicals. There is nothing recyclable or sustainable about these products and most, unfortunately, are dumped into landfills. Now that we mention it, you will may notice mattresses on the roadsides, in lakes, in drainage ditches, atop moving cars on the highway and so on. Because SAMINA is built from natural products it is bio-degradable but what’s more is that it will last far longer than a conventional mattress and with some simple maintenance and replacement for wear and tear that begins about a decade or more after initial investment. SAMINA can easily last a lifetime and maybe several.
