Ever wish your bed could move with you? Imagine if the best part about your favorite cozy recliner joined forces with your bed, and there you have it: your new favorite bed with a fully adjustable base.

Aside from being able to recline your bed at any angle for whatever best fits your comfort, having an adjustable base bed can offer a wide variety of benefits. Here are just a few.

1. Better Blood Circulation

Adjustable beds act similarly to hospital beds, which are notoriously great at helping patients get comfortable. According to NBC News and Jeffrey Bergin, DC, dean at the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Ill., patients that have conditions like circulation problems and hypertension can find it difficult to sleep on a flat bed. By adjusting a bed to a position that’s comfortable for you, you can take pressure off of your circulatory system and provide better blood flow to arms and legs.

2. Help With Digestion

Who hasn’t had the occasional bout of heartburn and indigestion? Acid reflux and GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) can be pesky, especially after eating a heavy meal, but one of the best treatments for relieving pain doesn’t require any pill. According to several sources including Healthline, when someone sleeps on their back, acid can leak out of the stomach and into the esophagus more easily. Using a pillow to slightly elevate the head, shoulders and torso can prevent this from happening. When the upper body is elevated, gravity makes it less likely for stomach contents to come back up. With an adjustable bed, there’s no need for extra pillows to prop up your head – simply recline to get the best angle to help relieve any inklings of indigestion.

3. Say Goodnight to Snoring and Other Breathing Problems

You could try breathing strips that claim to open up airways and stop sleeping nuisances like snoring, or you could try that elevation trick again. Before you rush off to look for other ways to stop snoring or breathing problems, simply try elevating your head – either by pillows or with an adjustable bed. It’s all just a click or two away until the bed props you up.

4. Sit Back and Put Your Feet Up

Gravity really does work wonders, especially when it comes to keeping swelling at bay. To recover from injuries or any sort of swelling or pain you might have, try propping up your feet. For an easy way to get your feet up, simply crawl into an adjustable bed to jumpstart your healing.

5. Customize Your Comfort

Adjustable base beds are great for customizing sleep to your relaxation needs. Choose exactly what feels best for your body with an adjustable base – sleep flat when you want to, elevate your head when you need to and click away for any incline in between.
