I decided to take a quick search and see what people are claiming about magnetic pillows. I found one site that says that magnetic pillows help promote natural melatonin within the body. According to Wikipedia, melatonin is “a pervasive and powerful antioxidant, with a particular role in the protection of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA.” Melatonin also has an effect on our circadian rhythms, our natural sleep-wake cycle.
Most of the rest of the information I found has to do with getting rid of headaches and stress so that you can sleep well, the usual stuff that you read about therapeutic magnets.
I hadn’t heard the stuff before about melatonin and that magnetic pillows can help restore your natural sleep cycle if used regularly. I found an article on eHow about how to sleep on a magnetic pillow. At first I thought the idea of an article about how to sleep on a pillow seemed a little silly, but it actually has some good information on how to make sure that you get the best night’s sleep possible, in addition to using a magnetic pillow.
I cannot personally verify any of the claims that people make about magnetic pillows because I generally sleep very well, at least until my cat wakes me up in the morning, and I don’t get headaches very often. I do use a magnetic pillow though and maybe that’s why? I don’t know and I’m not willing to go without my pillow to test it. I even take it with me when I travel.
My pillow comes from Nikken, the people who have been making magnetic products for the body for more than 35 years. One thing that sets the Nikken pillows apart from the others that I saw online is that these are made of natural latex rubber shredded up into a filler that is comfortable to sleep on and doesn’t get matted down like other pillow fillers. It also makes use of natural fibers that are naturally flame resistant so that they don’t have to coat the pillow in noxious chemicals to meet government safety standards.
