How do BB Holistic Weighted Blankets work?

When you sleep under a weighted blanket, it acts like a massager and creates deep touch pressure effect on your body. Sleeping with weighted blanket makes you feel like you are hugged and cocooned. As a response to these effects, brain releases serotonin hormone. Serotonin is known as a “happiness hormone” and turns to melatonin, the sleep hormone. Therefore, you get longer and better quality sleep with weighted blankets

To create the weight our BB Holistic Blankets are filled with small beads which are made with natural minerals and clay. The minerals emit far infrared ray - FIR - energy. That energy is abundant in the nature and sunlight and has very good effect on human body. FIR also stimulates serotonin/melatonin release. 

Our patent pending blankets also block electromagnetic radiation and give your body a break from the EMF signals. Those signals destroy melatonin hormone and disrupt sleep. 

Clinical trials have proven that weighted blankets (even without FIR and EMF blocking effect like ours), can help for insomnia or sleep deprivation many health conditions. Additionally, studies reported that weighted blankets ease anxiety, depression, fatigue and improve memory. They are also suitable choice for autism, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorders in children. The health benefits of regular weighted blankets are significantly increased with added FIR and EMG blocking effect in our BB Weighted Blankets. We guarantee much better sleep with our blankets.
