What is a bamboo and bamboo pillow?
Bamboo naturally wicks moisture and heat. They also allow hot air to escape. Compared to other fabrics used to make pillows, bamboo may be better at keeping a sleeper’s head cool and dry so it does not affects the control of sleep and wakefulness.

Here’s information to help you understand because many a times obstructive sleep apnea can affect your life.
Why we buy a bamboo pillow?
There isn’t much solid research on the health benefits of bamboo pillows. But there is evidence that bamboo fibers — the ones used in bamboo pillows — have many of the qualities talked about

Symptoms differ depending on the severity and type of sleeping disorder. They may also vary when sleep disorders are a result of another condition.
However, general symptoms of sleep disorders include:
• difficulty falling or staying asleep
• daytime fatigue
• strong urge to take naps during the day
• unusual breathing patterns
• unusual or unpleasant urges to move while falling asleep
• unusual movement or other experiences while asleep
• unintentional changes to your sleep/wake schedule
• irritability or anxiety
• impaired performance at work or school
• lack of concentration
• weight gain
Some potential health benefits are:
Bamboo may be antibacterial and hypoallergenic. There’s some evidence that bamboo fibers naturally resist the growth of bacteria. This means they’re less likely to harbor microorganisms that could lead to illness or smelly odors. But some studies that have looked at bamboo have not found that it’s more anti-bacterial than cotton.
There is also some evidence that bamboo really is less likely to cause an allergic reaction compared to some other textiles.
Bamboo is easy to care for. Compared to cotton, bamboo materials are more wrinkle-resistant and less likely to shrink in the wash.
Bamboo can be eco-friendly. From an environmental standpoint, there are a few more benefits of bamboo. Compared to trees, bamboo absorbs much more carbon dioxide
a greenhouse gas — and makes more fresh oxygen.
Bamboo also grows back much more quickly than most plants. It’s one of the fastest-growing plants in the world. It biodegrades easily, and it doesn’t need much water.In most cases, rainwater is enough to sustain bamboo growth.
Unlike many other crops, bamboo doesn’t need any pesticide treatments.
But so far, there’s really no good research comparing the health benefits of bamboo pillows to other types.
