How Do Performance Mouthguards Work?

Under Armour Performance Mouthwear: How it Works


You are “hard-wired” to clench your jaw.

When you train and compete, your natural reaction is to clench your jaw.  Its part of the “fight or flight” 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 ArmourBite™ Technology prevents your teeth from clenching and pivots your jaw forward to relieve pressure on the TMJ.  Gone are 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.
