MOST SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS NOW REQUIRE PARTICIPANTS TO WEAR A MOUTHGUARD AS PART OF THEIR PROTECTIVE GEAR
Whenever athletes compete or train, the natural reaction is to clench the jaw. It’s all part of the “fight or flight” hard-wiring in the brain.
When under stress or strain, athletes clench their teeth triggering an excess production of performance-sapping hormones like cortisol (the stress hormone) and restrict the airway due to nerve and muscle tension. Studies have shown that by putting a scientifically measured space between the teeth athletes can limit the production of these hormones and open the airway, which aids in oxygen exchange and the reduction of lactic acid.
Multi-patented ArmourBite Power Wedges are uniquely shaped to help maintain optimal spacing and counteract the negative effects of clenching. ArmourBite Technology helps the body help itself by unlocking the power of the jaw so athletes can unleash their full potential and perform better.
