How does it work?
Unclench your jaw to become a better athlete. You are “hard-wired” to clench your jaw. When you tain and compete, your natural reaciton is to clench your jaw. It’s part of the “flight or fight” wiring of your brain. Your clenched jaw and teeth compress your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), triggering the release of excess amounts of performance-sapping hormones (like cortisol) that produce stress, fatigue and distraction. UA Performance Mouthwear helps the human body help itself by unlocking the power of the jaw. Patented AmourBite tm Technology prevents your teeth from clenching and pivots your jaw slightly forward to relieve pressure on the TMJ. Thus, decreases the excess negative hormones and the energy draining effects, so the body can now unleash its full potential.
Independent studies conducted at some of the nation’s top universities and research centers have proven the undeniable advantages of UA Performance Mouthwear. UnderArmour Performance Mouthwear has been featured in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, The Journal of American Dental Associaion, SLAM, Iron Man Magazine, Golf Week, Soccer Reviews.com., PGA Tour Network Radio.
