SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent scientific studies show that the ideal sleep temperature for adults ranges from 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Product developers of lightweight moisture wicking PJs at Cool-jams Inc. have discovered that this range is essential because it allows your core body temperature to drop, which helps initiate and maintain a deep, solid slumber.
"Cool-jams work because they keep your body temperature regulated all night so you are never too hot or too cold," said Anita Mahaffey, founder and CEO of Cool-jams, Inc. "Our independent laboratory tested products help make restless nights a thing of the past."
Researchers have known for decades that core body temperature plays a vital role in sleep patterns for menopausal women and the elderly, but only recently have they discovered a mild drop in body temperatures helps lull everyone to sleep.
While a cool core temperature helps with sleep, cool hands and feet do not. Cold extremities result in sleeplessness, so it is vital to keep the entire body within the temperature range. Many factors influence body temperature, including room temperature, pajamas and bedding.
Various strategies exist to create perfect sleep conditions. A few recommended ways to promote a good night's sleep include keeping bedroom temperature no higher than 70 degrees, taking a warm bath 90 to 120 minutes before bed, making sure the room is pitch black, and wearing a pair of warm socks.
When it comes to pajamas and bedding, Cool-jams, Inc. — Apparel Magazine's 2013 Top Innovator Award Winner — is using science to help win the war against insomnia. The company designs innovative, yet incredibly comfortable pajamas that regulate body temperature. These lightweight moisture wicking PJs, available in both men's and women's sizes, use a special microfiber fabric that senses the body's temperature. They keep the body cool and dry when it's hot, and warm and cozy when it's chilly.
Cool-jams goal of assisting the 30 to 40 percent of Americans that suffer from insomnia symptoms each year doesn't stop with just PJs. Their continued research has lead to new, innovative product development such as cooling sheets, cooling pillow covers, cooling blankets and comforters, and cooling mattress pads.
Created in 2007, Cool-jams Inc. designs state-of-the-art moisture wicking pajamas, nighties and bedding that focus on diversity and style without sacrificing comfort. Since its launch, Cool-jams has been featured in national women's magazines, on TV shows like "The Doctors," and is a top-rated merchant on Amazon.
