Under Armour Performance Enhancing Mouthguard

www.underarmour.com it's on the bottom left of the front page.

Under Armour has claims and scientific data to back up that this mouthguard will enhance professional performance. What do you think about the data? What do you think about the mouthguard? Brock wears it, just saying.

I have one and it's pretty nice to be able to breathe through and keep my mouth shut but it doesn't stay in place as well as other mouthguards have for me and it's tough to talk through. I had to do the boil and bite twice to get a decent fit and it's still not that great.

My high school buddies Steve and Scott are c-level executives at AU.

If they say that it's performance enhancing, then I believe them.

is this like those pure power mouthguards?

they say they take a mould of ur jaw with electrodes attached to get the most relaxed state that u r in, so that when ur "performing" u can be relaxed and stress free.
i call utter bullshit on this, when ur fighting for example, then most people will bite down hard and grit their teeth, and they r far from relaxed.
when ur straining in nfl or any extreme contact sport, then u will hardly be relaxed
bunch of bunk

GLADIATOR OR KISS YOUR CHICKLETS GOODBYE.......

I wear one, and I can go all night like a lumberjack.

I wear one to work "just in case".

I don't know (and didn't even bother reading) about the 'relaxed' bs, but those look like they would make it easier to breathe with.  Increased oxygen intake = better performance in my totally non scientific opinion.  I'd like to try one of them out since I have to breathe through my mouth all the time when training.



Although I think they should have picked someone from a tougher sport than Manny Ramirez.  Will it make me hit more homeruns? 

 maybe its got steroids in it that slowly absorb thru your gums

There were studies in the 80s and 90s that suggested that properly alignment of the jaw can improve strength. Search PubMed for "temporomandibular alignment strength" or "jaw posture strength"; one of the more recent reviews is cited at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9110627There is some evidence that a mouthguard can improve strength, but it's weak evidence. Weak for science, that is; strong enough for advertising.

Carl Weathers - I use it, it really enhanced my performance. I no longer worry about semen breaking down the enamel of my teeth and so I can just go hog wild.

NoPlacebo, I'm not sure what mouthguard you're wearing but this is not the boil-type mouthguard. You go to your dentist, he takes a professional impression and sends it out to a lab for mouthguard manufacturing and perfect fit.

How about for $320? Do you have any wiggle room?

I'm wondering whether you could put a Buffer 360 logo on a mouthguard. Would be a hella combination: Gladiator + Bruce....

Yes, you could get a Bruce Buffer 360 logo on it, and I'm willing to bet that if you wanted your dentist to make one for $330 he would be willing to do it.
