New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2014 -- Sleeping problems and other serious sleeping disorders can be attributed to a number of factors, and one of them is extreme temperatures: extremely hot and extremely cold. PolarGel™ has come up with a solution to high temperatures affecting the quality of sleep with the PolarGel Pillow, a cooling pillow that makes use of the latest and most advanced cooling gel technology. It is sold exclusively by New Home Innovations and distributed by Amazon.com.
The need to keep things cool during bedtime is more apparent for women since, unlike men, their body temperatures vary depending on their menstrual cycles. They are more prone to hot flashes, which become more rampant once they reach their menopausal stage. Hot flashes, further aggravated by a high room temperature, can cause sleep interruptions, leading to bigger problems such as insomnia and even anxiety and depression.
According to W. Christopher Winter, MD, of the Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine Centre in Virginia, the right temperature for sleeping is “typically a bit on the cool side”, which is anywhere between 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Any temperature exceeding 75 degrees will cause discomfort and disrupt one’s sleep. Michael J. Breus, author of Good Night: The Sleep Doctor’s 4-Week Program to Better Sleep agrees, but lowered the figure a bit. He said that the “optimal” temperature for great sleep is between 68 and 72 degrees. Both estimates are assumed to be generalizations, as they made no mention of whether or not women’s unique hormonal make-up were taken into consideration.
The usual solutions turned to during these times include cranking up the A/C, taking cool showers before bed, frequent sipping of ice cold water, and placing a cool and wet towel on the forehead to absorb body heat. The PolarGel Cooling Pillow dispenses with the need for any of these so-called “fixes”, as it helps disperse body heat throughout its 12” x 22” area, regulating body temperature, and aids in achieving a deeper and more restful sleep.
PolarGel™’s move to use cooling gel in this unique pillow enables it to stay at a temperature that is below the current room temperature. However, for extreme situations where there is a need for lasting coolness, it can be lowered even more by putting the PolarGel Pillow in the refrigerator.
