What if you could use the time you were asleep to actually improve your health?  Sleeping on an incline, with the support of an adjustable bed base, can help reduce pain, promote healing, improve digestion, and much more.

Health Benefits of Sleeping at an Incline

Back pain:

Adjustable bed bases provide customizable back support while aligning your spine. This relieves nerve and joint pressure in the back, neck, and head.

Blood circulation:

Find the angle that works best for you to improve circulation and promote healing. With head and foot adjustability, you can target problem areas or joints for optimal comfort.

Apnea and snoring:

Proper alignment can open airways to discourage obstructive apnea and snoring—and dramatically improve your quality of sleep (as well as your partner’s).

Acid reflux and digestion:

Inclining the angle of your head by just 6 inches can ensure your stomach acid stays in its proper place. This also relieves throat stress and improves digestion.


Elevating the legs can help reduce swelling in the lower limbs caused by an injury or just a long day on your feet. It’s also recommended for those who suffer from varicose veins.

Asthma and allergies:

Sleeping on a flat back can create oxygen restriction. But sleeping at an incline may open airways and help relieve asthma symptoms. It’s a great option for stuffy noses and allergies as well.

Muscle pain:

The massage feature found in many top adjustable bed base models helps to stimulate aching muscles and relieve painful knots by promoting circulation.

With these benefits in mind, Dr. Oz and his team designed three adjustable bed bases for Dr. Oz Good Life™. Because when you sleep elevated, you help your body heal, all while getting a great night’s sleep.
