Frequently Asked Questions from Athletes
What is Under Armour Performance Mouthwear?
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear is a completely new category of performance gear designed for all athletes looking to improve their athletic performance.
How does Under Armour Performance Mouthwear differ from mouthguards?
Mouthguards provide teeth protection. Under Armour Performance Mouthwear, which includes mouthpieces and mouthguards powered by AmourBite technology, does more: it enhances performance. It is not only backed by some of the biggest names in professional sports, it is also recommended by dentists, professional 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. The Under Armour Performance Mouthwear powered by ArmourBite technology prevents teeth clenching and relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joint. 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
