Makura Health and Neck Support Pillow

[Product Review]

My personal preference for a pillow would be those fluffy ones that my head can literally sink into when I lay in them. The worst would be new pillows with synthetic material that needed a long time to get “flattened”. And I can never understand how my dad would sleep on his red “brick-like” hard pillow, because I tried and the pillow height was too high for my neck then.

There are so many different types of pillows available in the market. We have the classics filled with different types of materials such as polyester or feathers, and therapeutic pillows made for better sleeping posture and support. These special pillows may use materials ranging from memory foams, gels to even water. I had never tried any though, because I was used to my trusty old pillow.

Actually a couple of months back, I started getting body aches occasionally but I attributed it to my advancing age. I can feel tensed muscles from my neck down to my back at times, but the worst would be the migraine I get occasionally too. Never really gave much thought to that until ActiveHiveSG sent me a pillow for review, and then it dawned on me that my  pillow may had been the bloody problem.

These transparent and opaque plastic capsules / bits are used to fill  up the pillow.
I wasn’t too keen on changing my old soft and smelly pillow and it ended up in storage for over a week. I was naturally skeptical too when I read about the purported therapeutic properties of the Makura Health and Neck Support Pillow that doesn't use cotton, foam, water, gel or the other usual stuff, but small plastic capsules instead. But I still have to try it out personally and report truthfully due to my blogger professionalism ok? 

My Verdict

I am pleasantly surprised to note that after trying out the pillow for the past two month, I hardly woke up with any aches nowadays, whether I slept facing the left, the right or up! And I indeed felt more refreshed in the morning due to the better quality of sleep I got! The height of the pillow provided just the right level of support for my neck and it can be adjusted based on individual needs just be removing / adding the plastic capsules. And because it is filled with all these hollow capsules, any heat generated also dissipated quickly making the pillow cooling too!    

Even my wife had noted that I hardly complained about aches these days and after knowing that it was largely attributed to my use of the pillow, asked me why only I got to enjoy! So to sum it all up, if you are experiencing aches in the mornings and you have reasons to suspect the cause to be your pillow, this would be IDEAL pillow that I strongly recommend! Save yourself from aches from bad postures!
