Why we're different

Discover why MOLECULE is used by champions

Sleep is essential for everybody - especially for those who live an active lifestyle. At MOLECULE, we develop products to help people rest and recover during the night so they can maximize their performance during the day. But unlike most sleep brands, we don’t just create products with an attractive cover, a slick marketing message, and a promise of generic comfort - we help people get the right type of recovery-focused sleep through advanced materials and decades of research.

Air Engineered™

Every product at MOLECULE is designed to maximize airflow and facilitate cooling. Our research and development team, working in conjunction with our engineers and Medical Advisory board, select materials, invent production processes, and develop designs to create sleep products that efficiently transfer heat away from the body - an important factor to getting the most restorative sleep possible. The result? Meticulously engineered products that optimize sleep and recovery.

Backed by science

Cool sleep isn’t just a buzzword to us. It’s a guiding principle.

One of the most important factors that can influence the quality and duration of your body’s recovery during sleep is an adequate drop in your core body temperature. Our body’s thermoregulation is less efficient during sleep, so external controllable factors that affect temperature - such as the products you sleep on - are essential.

Our team includes renowned Sleep Doctors and Neurologists with decades of research and experience who understand the mechanisms of recovery-focused sleep and help guide our product development.

What is the right type of sleep?

In any given night of sleep, your body typically goes through four distinct stages of sleep. One stage in particular, Slow Wave Sleep, is the most restorative stage for your body.

Stage N1

  • Transitional phase
  • Floating in and out of consciousness

Stage N2

  • Onset of sleep
  • Becoming disengaged from surroundings
  • Breathing and heart rate being to slow

Stage N3

  • Deepest stage of sleep and the hardest to wake up from
  • Blood pressure drops
  • Breathing becomes slower, deeper, more rhythmic

Stage N4

  • Eyes dart back and forth
  • Heart rate and blood pressure increase
  • Brain is most active and dreams occur

The importance of slow wave sleep

During this most restorative stage of sleep (which typically represents 25% of the night), the following recovery-focused functions occur:
Getting sufficient Slow Wave Sleep is critical for anyone who wants to maximize their body recovery and performance.
