Hypoallergenic organic bamboo used to make bamboo viscose sheets is naturally anti-microbial resistant to mold, dust mites, and other bacterial pathogens that can flair allergies and asthma attacks. But what causes these attacks in the first place?
Bamboo Viscose Sheets for Allergy Relief
Shedding Dead Skin Cells in Bed Cause Allergic Reactions at night
Skin is the largest organ of the human body, accounting for approximately 16% of our total body weight. Every hour we shed about 600,000 particles of the skin, amounting to roughly a pound and one half per year. However, shedding is beneficial for our skin’s health. It removes dead skin cells so that new healthy skin cells can re-grow.
The problem with shedding skin is that it provides a yummy food source for dust mites and other micro-organisms. These microscopic organisms live in porous material like bedding providing them the ideal living environment to live and breed.
It’s not the dust mites themselves that cause the problem. Rather, it’s the microscopic particles of waste these organisms secrete that cause allergic reactions in sensitive people. With a high reproductive capacity and an ideal environment to live with plenty of dead skin cells to eat, dust mites and other microscopic organisms can cause sleepless nights for those with allergies.
How Bamboo Viscose Sheets Can Help to Alleviate Allergy Symptoms
According to Dr. Sanjeev Jain, a certified allergist at Columbia Allergy, the ideal hypoallergenic textile for bedding is one where the fabric is tightly woven and less likely to retain allergen particles. The material should also be breathable and provide a cool sleeping environment where allergy-causing micro-organisms cannot grow.
Bamboo viscose sheets, woven in a tight twill pattern, makes it very difficult for pathogens like dust mites to enter the fabric and make a home for itself. Additionally, bamboo linen is breathable, which helps prevent moisture caused from our sweating as we sleep at night. Remember, micro-organisms prefer a moist wet environment. A home that is cool and dry makes their stay far less welcome. Also, bamboo, which grows organically, has natural anti-microbial properties to ward off insects and micro-organisms.
