Thousands of shoppers are loving the weighted blanket claiming it helps you fall asleep faster
A WEIGHTED blanket has received over 7,000 five star reviews for helping insommiacs and people with anxiety get a good night’s sleep.
The Quilty Weighted Blanket aims to emulate the feeling of a comforting hug, and can help you fall asleep faster and sleep better throughout the night.
The product, which starts at $59.70 (£46) is made up of seven layers that contain millions of “premium micro glass beads” to give it its weighted effect.
According to reports, by gently distributing pressure across your body the blanket increases serotonin and melatonin levels and decreases cortisol levels—improving your mood and promoting restful sleep.
In a similar way to swaddling a baby, the weight and pressure on an adult provides near-instant comfort and relief.
By maximising relaxation and minimising body movement, it also claims to put the person into a deeper sleep.
And it seems that the products is worthy of the hype receiving almost exclusively five star reviews from satisfied not to mention well rested customers.
One wrote: “I have been sleeping the best ever! The additional weight adds a sense of comfort and security that traditional comforters just can’t match! Highly recommend this blankie!!”
Equally impressed another added: “I am obsessed with my Quility weighted blanket!
“I don’t suffer from anxiety or depression or any of that, but I just looove it as a super comfortable, heavy, “hugged, tucked in” blanket on the couch!”
A third said: “The material and workmanship are great. If you think it’s too expensive, think again. Your sleep is worth it.”
One parent even credited the blanket for helping her son, who has autism, to get a good night’s sleep.
She said: “My son has autism, and has experienced anxiety with sleeping his entire life.
“Before the Quility blanket arrived, he was sleeping with 5 blankets on top of him, even in summer, just for that pressure.
“Now he is only using the weighted blanket, and he is so grateful.”
