Health Benefits of AURIA
Your Prescription For Better Sleep:
Benefits of Sleeping on an AURIA "Climate Controlled Sleep System”
AUIRA produces a “Micro Climate” of cool, dry, clean filtered air recommended by the National Sleep Foundation
- Sleep Cool with AURIA
- AURIA creates the optimum environment for reaching “Thermo-Neutrality”
Cooling the body externally can make you feel more comfortable and help you to fall asleep however, sleep scientists now understand that by breathing in air that is 35 degrees lower than our body temperature we can achieve the condition known as “Thermo-Neutrality” that will make women sleep up to 71% and men 62% deeper, reaching REM sleep faster and remaining thermally balanced throughout the entire sleep cycle.
Definition of thermoneutrality
: a state of thermal balance between an organism and its environments such that bodily thermoregulatory mechanisms are inactive
- Sleeping on an AURIA helps in releasing more Melatonin
It’s been shown that sleeping in temperatures between 60-67 degrees will allow your body to release more melatonin which helps us to fall asleep and is one of our best anti-aging hormones.
Definition of melatonin
: a vertebrate hormone that is derived from serotonin, is secreted by the pineal gland especially in response to darkness, and has been linked to the regulation of circadian rhythms
- AURIA helps to increase “Brown Fat”
Spending time in a cool environment makes your brown fat more active, and could even cause you to grow new brown-fat cells, according to a 2014 study conducted by National Institutes of Health researchers and published in the journal Diabetes. "It helps us to defend our body temperature in a comfortable manner," said Barbara Cannon, a professor of physiology at the Wenner-Grenn Institute in Stockholm.
In a four-month study, it was determined that sleeping in a 66-degree room not only burned more calories while awake, but the amount of “brown fat” (or good fat) in the body increased. Brown fat allows your body to burn calories, not store them. Helping to lower the risk for metabolic diseases like diabetes over time.
Definition of brown fat
: a mammalian heat-producing tissue occurring especially in human fetuses and newborn infants and in hibernating animals
A Woman's Best Friend:
AURIA provides relief from menopausal symptoms
AURIA has been shown to reduce symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and night sweats, which can lead to other complications such as insomnia, depression and weight gain.
- Hot Flashes
Hot flashes are the most common symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. More than two-thirds of North American women who are heading into menopause have hot flashes. What Is a Hot Flash? It's a sudden feeling of heat and sometimes a red, flushed face and sweating. We don't know exactly what causes them, but they may be related to changes in circulation. Hot flashes start when blood vessels near the skin's surface widen to cool off, making you break out in a sweat. Some women have a rapid heart rate or chills, as well.
- Night Sweats
When Hot Flashes happen while you sleep, they're called “Night Sweats” which can wake you up and may make it hard to get to get back to sleep.
Auria combats symptoms of menopause by not only cool the body externally, but cooling the body internally as well by breathing in the cool, clean filtered air delivered by AURIA.

: the natural cessation of menstruation that usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55
AURIA removes moisture & humidity
- Humidity and Sleep
An important factor that increases restlessness during sleep is humidity. Exposure to humidity has been shown to increase wakefulness, decreases REM (rapid eye movement) and SWS (slow wave sleep), and excessively suppresses the decrease in Tcore (core body temperature). In addition, decreased ambient humidity allows sweat to evaporate, thereby dissipating the heat. Increased humidity does not allow the sweat to evaporate, causes the skin to remain wet and increases restlessness.

: a moderate degree of wetness especially of the atmosphere
AURIA affords significant relief from allergies & asthma
- Breathing Issues
People with Asthma may become hyper reactive (hypersensitive) to certain inhaled allergens or irritants. These are called triggers, and these triggers can cause even more inflammation and narrowing of the airways. The reason for this is that some people's bodies are immunologically inclined to overreact to certain substances. An overactive immune system can set off asthma in this way. Asthma can have both allergic and nonallergic triggers. Allergic asthma triggers include many of the allergens discussed earlier.
AURIA creates an environment free of pollution and particulates by continuously filtering the air through our (patent pending) SRT9000 Climate Control Module. Every fifteen (15) seconds the air is processed and filtered through the SRT9000 and gently cascades from the headboard, continuously recirculating over and around the system as you sleep.
AURIA delivers natural sleep
- No Drugs
Most experts recommend that sleep medications should not be taken for more than a few days to a few weeks. Some sleep medications can become habit forming (countless numbers of people have become "accidentally addicted"). Long term use is frequently ineffective for lasting relief from most sleep issues. The quality of sleep for people who depend on sleep medications is usually not satisfying and report only a few days of decent sleep or perhaps just four or five hours of good sleep at night.
The AURIA has been designed and engineered to deliver the perfect sleeping environment that doctors have been recommending for decades. AURIA creates a true “Micro-Climate” of cool, dry, clean filtered air around the entire perimeter of the system. Not only that but we have incorporated our patented “Sound-Wave” technology into the AURIA, a frequency developed to emulate what we experienced for 9 months when our mothers carried us, making it nearly impossible to not fall asleep. This combination of “Cool Climate Control” and “Sound-Wave” technologies is unmatched anywhere in the mattress and bedding industry.
With AURIA there is no need for over the counter or prescription drugs. The AURIA "Climate Controlled Sleep System" actually delivers cool, natural, restorative sleep.
AURIA & CPAP
- Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea: The temporary stoppage of breathing during sleep, often resulting in daytime sleepiness. Apnea is a Greek word that means "want of breath."
The most common form of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea. In obstructive sleep apnea, the muscles of the soft palate around the base of the tongue and the uvula relax, obstructing the airway. The airway obstruction causes the level of oxygen in the blood to fall (hypoxia), increases the stress on the heart, elevates blood pressure, and prevents the patient from entering REM sleep, the restful and restorative stage of sleep. In other words, sleep apnea causes deprivation of quality sleep.
The symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include loud snoring and/or abnormal pattern of snoring with pauses and gasps. Other symptoms include excessive daytime sleepiness, memory changes, depression, and irritability. In some patients sleep apnea can contribute to high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, and heart attack.
- CPAP Therapy
CPAP which stands for continuous positive airway pressure -- is an effective treatment for sleep apnea. A mask is worn over the nose or mouth during sleep while compressed air is gently forced through the nose or mouth to keep the airway open. Different patients need different mask sizes and different pressure levels for optimal treatment results.
CPAP users can now enjoy all the benefits of AURIA. Not only cooling the body externally, they can now breathe in the cool, crisp, dry filtered air, through their CPAP machine to help facilitate lowering Tcore (core body temperature) internally which helps you fall asleep faster and sleep deeper by quickly reaching the condition known as “Thermo-Neutrality”. Simply place your CPAP machine into the built-in “Cool Breathe” cabinet of the AURIA “Manhattan” model, plug it into the built-in power receptacle and close the door. When not in use, the mask and hose assembly can be hidden out of sight in the “Cool Breathe” cabinet. No more unsightly wires and hoses cluttering up the bedroom.
In studies looking at the sleep quality of patients with sleep apnea, sleep quality improved as temperature moved from 75.2 degrees to 60.8 degrees. In addition, cooler temperature subjects slept longer and felt more awake in the morning after sleeping in the colder environment. When lying in bed trying to snooze, your body temperature decreases to initiate sleep, and the recommended temperatures can help facilitate this. Your body temperature does more than just keep you comfortable while you sleep, it’s actually a key part of what regulates the circadian rhythm that determines when your body is ready to go to sleep. If your room is cool, rather than warm, it will be much easier to shut your eyes for the night.
The mask is an essential part of your CPAP therapy and can trap heat around your face and neck. The added pressure and contact with your face also prevents adequate airflow over your skin, causing you to sweat and feel uncomfortable. This can raise your body temperature and make you restless, which directly impacts your quality of sleep. Excessive moisture caused by humidity can lead to condensation build-up in the mask and hose, known as ‘rainout’, which can make you feel uncomfortable.
The cool, dry filtered air delivered by AURIA eliminates unwanted moisture from your CPAP system. Supplying a “Zero” humidity base line to the CPAP machine ensures precise control of the CPAP machine for the exact amount of humidity necessary for maximum compliance.

AURIA & Energy Savings
- AURIA let’s you sleep cool for just pennies a night
Why would you heat or cool a 1,600 square foot home, when you are sleeping in 60 square feet? That's 26 times the volume of air that needs to be processed. You are literally throwing your money out the window.
To those who say they have a central air conditioning system, it should be noted that most whole house air conditioning systems cannot achieve the required lower temperatures (60° and 67°F) without freezing the system, and if it could reach the recommended temperature, it would cost a small fortune.
By simply adjusting your whole house thermostat up by 6 - 8 degrees during the night you can realize an energy cost savings of ~27% or more, while extending the life of your primary home cooling system by ~30%, making the AURIA one of the "greenest" products in the industry. The AURIA Climate Controlled Sleep System will literally pay for itself over time with the energy savings.
