What is Under Armour Performance MouthwearTM?
Under Armour Performance MouthwearTM is a completely new category of performance gear designed for all athletes looking to get better in their chosen sport.
How does UA Performance Mouthwear differ from mouthguards?
Mouthguards provide protection. UA Performance Mouthwear, which includes mouthpieces and mouthguards powered by ArmourBiteTMTechnology, does more: It enhances performance. It is not only backed by some of the biggest names in pro sports, it’s also recommended by dentists, pro trainers, strength coaches and wellness experts.
How does it work?
Clenching the jaw triggers the production and release of a cascade of hormones, including cortisol, the stress hormone. UA Performance Mouthwear powered by ArmourBiteTM Technology prevents teeth clenching and relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). By preventing the excessive production of hormones, the body is able to unlock its full potential.
Are there research studies to support the performance claims?
Absolutely. There are studies published in peer-reviewed journals to support the claims. More information is available online at www.underarmour.com.
