What is Eight Sleep?


Eight Sleep is a company that makes smart mattress covers designed to enhance sleep quality through temperature control. Their mattress covers have cooling, heating, and sleep tracking capabilities.

Andrew Huberman, a prominent advocate of the product, highlights how regulating the temperature of your sleeping environment is crucial for optimizing sleep. According to Huberman, the body needs to drop its temperature by 1-3 degrees to fall asleep and wake up feeling refreshed. With Eight Sleep, users can program their mattress to cool down at the beginning of the night, maintain a lower temperature during deep sleep, and then gradually warm up towards morning. This temperature regulation can help individuals fall asleep more easily, stay asleep throughout the night, and wake up naturally 1 2 3.
