What do Adrian Peterson , Joe Mauer, Lindsey Vonn and hundreds of other professional and amateur athletes have in common? They all wear custom made ArmourBite performance enhancing mouth-wear by Under Armour. With designs for use in both contact and non-contact sports, ArmourBite mouthpieces and mouth-guards can benefit any athlete in any sport.
Your jaw is the key to unlocking power and performance you never knew was there. The concept has been around for hundreds of years. Ancient Greek athletes bit down on leather straps for an edge during competition. Viking and Roman warriors clamped down on bits of leather for focus on the battlefield. They knew it worked but they didn’t understand why. Now we do.
The secret lies in your jaw. Whenever you train or compete, the natural reaction is to clench your jaw. It’s part of the “fight or flight” hard wiring in your brain. This leads to a cascade of chemicals in the body, such as cortisol, which sap energy and inhibits focus. ArmourBite mouthpieces employ patented “Power Wedges“ that are uniquely shaped to help maintain optimal spacing of the jaw and counteract the negative effects of clenching. By unlocking the power of the jaw, ArmourBite helps you unleash your full potential and perform better in any sport.
Independent, peer reviewed studies held at some of the nation’s top universities and research centers show that ArmourBite works. With more airflow and less stress it improves strength by an average of 17%. Lactic acid buildup is reduced by 25% after 30 minutes resulting in increased endurance and decreased recovery time. Clinical trials showed that ArmourBite speeds reaction time by improving response to both auditory and visual cues. Performance robbing athletic stress is reduced by decreasing the amount of excess cortisol. ArmourBite also delivers exceptional protection against impact to the jaw which can lead to concussions by reducing the effects of G-Force impact to their jaw by up to 20%.
Under Armour Performance Mouthpieces are backed by some of the biggest names in pro sports and recommended by dentists, pro trainers, strenght coaches and wellness experts. But it isn’t just for pros. It’s for all athletes at any level who want to perform better.
Under Armour mouthpieces are custom fabricated by an Under Armour certified dentist in a simple, three step process. First, your dentist determines what design is right for you and takes impressions of your teeth. Next, the impressions are sent to Under Armours lab where the mouthpiece is fabricated. Third, the mouthpiece is shipped back to your dentist for final fitting. The whole process takes about ten days. The cost varies from about $250 – $300 depending on design. Custom colors, straps names and numbers can be included.
