The Cause Of Night Time Allergies

You may have heard about the benefits of sleeping on bamboo bedding but may not know how this beautifully comfortable fabric might help and why.

Do you know that the main cause of night allergies including a blocked nose, itching and difficulty breathing can be caused by the dreaded but necessary dust mite. It’s not the mites themselves that cause the allergies but their droppings. Yikes! Sounds horrible doesn’t it? Just as well these little blighters aren’t visible to the naked eye or we’d spend all night trying to finish them off!

What Makes Bamboo Bed Linen So Successful In Preventing Or Easing Allergies?

Bamboo is ideal for Sensitive or Allergy prone skin. 100% Bamboo threads are very fine and create a smooth and soothing fabric. As a natural product Bamboo Fabric is Hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, biodegradable and totally sustainable.

Whilst there is no proven scientific evidence that bamboo helps relieve night allergies, you only have to take a look at the mass of reviews online to see that it actually works. We would even go as far as to say that if you switch to bamboo, you’ll likely never go back to cotton.

The very fine threads mean that you are protected from the dust mite droppings but also, this natural material is cooling so if your itching is caused by over-heating you’d benefit hugely.

Of course there are many causes when it comes to allergies but if yours are exacerbated at night then this may well be the reason. Did you know that you own natural levels of anti-histamine drop at night?

A Few More Tips For Night Time Itching

One amazing yet cost effective aid to the relief of night itching is ‘Witch Hazel Gel’ it’s cheap and so cooling. If you tend to suffer itching in certain spots then this is a handy item to have in your bathroom cupboard.

Anti-histamines of course. If you’re looking to cut down on your intake of these tablets then you may think about taking a look at these foods, all naturally high in anti-histamine – watercress, onion, garlic, camomile, peppermint, ginger, Pomegranates, apples and peaches.

Sometimes it’s easy to overlook things other than medicines. Processed foods may also make your allergies worse. We recently discovered that Wine contains histamine. How very upsetting!

If you are still unsure about what bamboo can do for you then do take a look at some unbiased reviews. Of course we know it’s amazing but if you don’t just want to take our word for it then a bit of research might help your decision.

Good luck fighting those night time allergies!

Enclose and protect your bed with the cooling effect of Natural Bamboo and keep those allergies at bay!

New 100% waterproof protection for your pillows, duvet and mattress  – protects your bedding against spills stains and accidents  AND independently tested and confirmed a 100% barrier against dust mites and most importantly their allergens. These sheets have been Certified 100% effective by the Medical Entomology Centre UK.

Using the very latest fabric technology the super soft Bamboo micro-terry is bonded to a very thin Polyurethane membrane which is 100% waterproof yet still breathable.  This also creates a 100% effective barrier against dust mites. House dust mites live deep inside pillows, duvets and mattresses, only coming to the surface for food and moisture, so an effective barrier is essential to block them.

Naturally grown Bamboo is hypoallergenic, offers no host to bacteria and resistant to mould. With greater absorbency than cotton, bamboo fibre quickly evaporates body moisture, keeping your bed fresher, more hygienic and comfortable.

The Bamboo micro-terry surface adds a layer of natural breathable silkiness and comfort to your mattress and is silent in use.

The bamboo fitted sheets are made with stretch sides to firmly fit on to mattresses up to 30cm – 12″ deep and elasticated all around. The pillowcases and duvet covers have zip openings. They are all machine washable at 40C and can be tumbled on a low heat.
