Amerisleep Mattress Review: A Safer, More Restorative Sleep Experience

Amerisleep Mattress makes the AS3, an all foam mattress option made using a plant based memory foam along with a supportive layers of CertiPur certified foam.

Our review of the Amerisleep mattress reveals several unique components that add to the comfort and cooling qualities of what would otherwise be a typical memory foam mattress.

Using a unique, plant based material called BioPur®,which behaves a lot like memory foam but has a livelier, slightly bouncier feel, offers an alternative from the typical lifeless and dead feel of typical memory foam mattresses.

Amerisleep Mattress: Cooler Skin Temperature Means Deeper, More Restorative Sleep

Visitors to our mattress review site are increasingly asking for us to review mattresses that sleep cooler, and mattresses that contain last petroleum based compounds.

We’ll explain why The Amerisleep Mattress could be a great option that delivers on that, and takes your sleep hygiene to the next level. In queen size, the mattress sells for $949.

Of course, what’s up top counts too. The surface you sleep on is incredibly important to keeping your body at optimal sleep temperature. In fact, you sleep better when your skin is actually a few degrees cooler than internal body temperature.

Amerisleep developed their unique outer encasement called the Refresh Cover to provide this benefit.

Because it’s made from a fiber with extremely high energy transfer capabilities, Amerisleep’s proprietary Refresh Cover draws heat from your skin for a soothing and relaxing cool-to-the-touch feel.

On average, your sleeping surface will stay 7 degrees cooler over an eight-hour night of rest, according to Amerisleep’s site, based on their research. That’s pretty impressive in my experience, and a major improvement for memory foam mattresses in general.

Beneath the cooling fabric exterior, the Amerisleep’s plant-based Bio-Pur® material adds to the cooling benefit as well. Its open-cell design allows more air to circulate than traditional foam — and more airflow means cooler sleep, less sweating, and huge reductions in tossing and turning.

Plant Based Memory Foam Mean Less Exposure To Chemicals

The Amerisleep Mattress incorporates a plant base foam called BioPur®, which greatly reduces off gassing from VOC's, formaldehyde, and other compounds.

Let me explain what “plant based foams” mean. You can reduce the amount of petroleum compounds used in the liquid ingredients, and substitute them with plant oils.

These oils are typically pressed from palm, soybean, or other natural oils.

Instead of sing volatile solvents, foam layers, including memory foam, can be created using far less toxic components, which many people are unknowingly highly sensitive to.

The Amerisleep Mattress is ideal for people who are fragrant sensitive, have seasonal allergies, or suffer from generalized inflammation. It’s a refreshing alternative to conventional memory foam mattresses.

The Amerisleep Mattress is a 12" thick all foam mattress.
With an overall thickness of 12″, it’s one of few all foam mattresses made with hypo-allergenic foam layers, along with a stretch knit performance fabric covering.

The Amerisleep Mattress offers a unique recipe that is simple in design while offering something I don’t typically see with memory foam mattresses.

First, the plant based memory foam layer won’t off gas fumes which is a common complaint. And, it’s extra thick at 3″, where most competitors offer 2″ on top of multiple layers of “filler” foam layers.

The Amerisleep Mattress also provides a layer of independent hexagon cylinders molded into a support layer that helps absorb motion, and provides lift at hips and shoulders.

I’ve seen this kind of design in other memory foam mattresses that cost $1200 and up, though.

The mattress is designed to resist packing down or developing soft spots, too. Underneath, the suspension or “chassis” is the 7″ layer of supportive yet yielding high density foam (the black layer in the photo).

This supportive layer is not too hard, yet won’t bottom out when you sit on the edge of the mattress or change positions.

Breathable & Cooling, Responsive AND Supportive

Bio-Pur®’s large, open-cell structure has a few distinct advantages, and unnlike traditional memory foam, it has has a rapid response time that:

  • Allows air to flow freely
  • Prevents heat build-up
  • Perfect for hot sleepers
  • Relieves painful pressure points
  • Prevents heat build-up
  • Bounces back in just seconds

Eco-Friendly Materials, Healthier Sleep

Featuring renewable plant-based oils, Amerisleep’s Bio-Pur® memory foam layer claims to:

  • Minimize use of non-renewable resources
  • Prevent body heat build-up
  • Produce products that are less dependent upon petroleum compounds
  • Relieve painful pressure points
  • Prevent heat build-up
  • Bounce back in just seconds
  • Relieve painful pressure points
  • Prevent heat build-up
  • Bounce back in just seconds

And, reviewers and owners of The Amerisleep Mattress seem to agree. We surveyed about a hundred actual owner reviews, overall, customers where really pleased.

Most commented on sleeping cooler, feeling less pressure at hips and shoulders, sleeping more on top of the mattress rather than turning easier, reducing the number of times experienced waking up.

Sitting on the edge of the mattress, the price ($949 in queen with free delivery), and the factory warranty of 20 years, all contributed to the general love for this mattress.

Based on owner feedback, cleaner and greener foam components, and an innovative body temperature reducing fabric, I’ve given The Amerisleep Mattress a coveted 4.8 out of 5 star rating.

In Depth: The Features And Benefits Of The Amerisleep Mattress

Sleeping hot is a chief complaint I hear a lot of from my readers and in emails asking about cooler sleeping mattress options.

I also have a page devoted to memory foam, if you want to learn more, but a common problem is that most brands who build memory foam mattresses typically use a petroleum based variety that is very dense.

We’ve all seen the memory foam handprint photos, and have experienced the wonderful “melting in” and cuddling feel of memory foam, but the trade off usually is that these foam act like heat traps and collect hot spots at areas like hips, abdomen, and shoulders.

The Amerisleep Mattress uses their BioPur® formulation which mixes in plant bases oils, and along with creating larger cells (the bubbles in the solidified foam), their version moves air more effectively.

Aside from being less toxic than oil bases foams, as you move and change positions during the night, the foam squeezes hot air from beneath your body and moves it away, towards the side.

This unique “passive ventilation” helps to keep you cooler. Together with the cooling Refresh fabric covering on top, your sleeping surface (body contact ares) will stay 7 degrees cooler over an eight-hour night of rest.

Improves Circulation, Restores Energy

Along with keeping you cool, the Refresh Cover on The Amerisleep Mattress also supports improved daily performance and energy. This scientifically engineered fabric uses minerals to help convert your natural body heat into far infrared energy.

Why far infrared? This type of energy increases blood circulation to help speed up muscle recovery and improve quality of sleep. Plus, according to peer-reviewed medical studies, far infrared exposure may offer even more health benefits than we even know about yet!

A Warranty And Trial Period I Like

With the purchase of an Amerisleep Mattress, you’ll get to try out the mattress for 120 nights, no questions asked. the warranty is pretty solid too, being 20 years.

Specifically, the company will back up your mattress so you can make a confident mattress investment. For the first 10 years, they’ll replace your mattress if you encounter any defects, including sagging greater than 0.75”. And for the second 10 years, they offer you a prorated replacement.
