If you suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), you may be searching for the best mattress for acid reflux, instead of the best mattress for you. Though some mattress companies sell products labeled as a “GERD mattress” this does not guarantee that these products will relieve you of your symptoms or be what fits the rest of your sleep needs. The good news is, there is a way to find relief without compromising your comfort. 

The experts at Texas Mattress Makers are here to provide their top tips for relieving your acid reflux symptoms as you sleep. 

Sleeping with acid reflux: What you should know 

If you lay flat on a mattress (back or stomach), you risk choking on acid reflux while sleeping due to a backflow of acid coming up from your stomach and into your throat. This fear can lead sleepers who suffer from GERD to ask, “What is the best sleeping position?” 

A study featured in the National Library of Medicine concluded that sleeping elevated and on your left side reduces the amount of acid that can enter your throat during sleep. However, you can sleep in your preferred sleep position regardless.

Doctors have found that sleeping with your head elevated in any position can provide long-term relief and comfort for those who suffer from acid reflux. 

Wondering how to raise your mattress for acid reflux? While some customers try to use piled pillows as a way to elevate their heads while they sleep, they don’t feel supported for long. It’s better to invest in a frame that keeps you elevated in the proper position, an adjustable base, adjustable bed frame, or other sloped devices to provide a more secure source of elevation.

Are adjustable beds good for reflux?

Adjustable bases can help with acid reflux, but we’ve got something better. At Texas Mattress Makers, expert engineers collaborated with gastrointestinal doctors to develop this foundation called the Acid Reflux Box Spring with the goal of promoting long-term relief for sleepers struggling with GERD. This box spring is exclusively at Texas Mattress Makers and it prevents an influx of stomach acid from reaching your esophagus by keeping your head elevated as you sleep.

How to shop for the best mattress for acid reflux for you

When people say they are looking for the best mattress for acid reflux, we tell them that the mattress itself is not going to suppress your GERD symptoms. The answer to the question, “What kind of bed is good for acid reflux?” is whatever will give you the best night’s rest. Your mattress should provide you with comfort and support, that’s it!

This is why we recommend buying the best mattress for you first, then purchasing our exclusive Acid Reflux Foundation, an adjustable base or box spring if you need it. Here is how Texas Mattress Makers can help you find your perfect mattress. 

Take our quiz

In order to find you your perfect mattress, we want to get to know you! Our Sleep Profile quiz will help us figure out what type of sleeper you are. The questions will go something like this:

  • What is your gender?*
  • What is your height/weight/body type?
  • What is your preferred sleep position?
  • Do you prefer a softer or firmer mattress? Or, in between?
  • Do you wake up with aches and pains?
  • What size of mattress do you want?
  • What’s your budget?

Based on your answers, the quiz will generate the mattress it thinks is the best for you –– however, this does not mean it is the only choice for you. This is where our showroom experts come in.

*We ask about gender because gender impacts your body weight placement which is more valuable than your actual weight.
