Promotes Sleep Quality and Duration

Are you longing for a good night's sleep? A weighted blanket is a perfect companion for you. According to health experts, weighted blankets have been proven to promote sleep quality for people dealing with insomnia and unrest.

The pressure of the blanket is designed to relieve your mind off stressful thoughts; this will allow you to tumble asleep quicker. They are proven to foster the production of serotonin, which in turn, produces melatonin which improves sleep duration.
