But this is just the beginning – a wealth of meticulously researched and peer-reviewed evidence solidifies the undeniable performance-enhancing benefits of incorporating this mouthpiece into your regimen. 

In the following sections, we will delve into this captivating realm, exploring the science behind the mouthpiece's potential to elevate your performance and highlighting why AIRWAAV deserves a central place in your training toolkit.   

Discovering the AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece 

The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece is a personalized device engineered to optimize performance by refining the position of the tongue to maximize airway efficiency. Through precise adjustments of the jaw and tongue, this mouthpiece enhances natural and efficient breathing, ultimately leading to heightened performance. 

Unveiling Performance Advantages 

The advantages of a custom-fitted mouthpiece are no longer a well-kept secret, but let's explore why it's such a transformative element. The magic lies in the subtle influence on airflow and the subsequent responses of the body. Here are some noteworthy performance advantages: 

  1. Enhanced Airflow

Rest assured; this isn't mere marketing hype; it's firmly grounded in scientific research. The results were clear: using a mouthpiece resulted in a significant increase in mean width and diameter – a remarkable enhancement of over two millimeters in width and nearly a millimeter in diameter. 

  1. Improved Endurance

Enhanced airflow has profound implications for fatigue management. Research indicates that using a mouthpiece led to 0.86 mmol/L lower lactate levels, contributing to enhanced endurance. A report in Military Medicine highlighted how a mouthpiece bolstered performance in activities like runs, anaerobic endurance runs, and leg presses by aligning the jaw and reducing airflow resistance. Additional studies point to a 13 percent reduction in lactate after resistance training and a 29 percent decrease in post-exercise cortisol levels with a mouthpiece, implying improved recovery mechanisms that set the stage for more productive subsequent training sessions. Even aerobic activities like running see a boost in oxygen consumption among custom-fitted mouthpiece users. Soccer players wearing mouthpieces exhibited superior results in VO2 and aerobic capacity tests. 

  1. Amplified Strength and Power

The benefits of the mouthpiece extend beyond airflow enhancement. The act of clenching the jaw can significantly augment both strength and power. The repositioning of the jaw could potentially have a holistic impact on overall performance. 

Results from incorporating a mouthpiece encompass: 

- A 13 percent enhancement in upper airway volume 

- A 10 percent boost in upper airway width 

- A seven percent rise in ventilation 

- A five percent increase in maximal aerobic power 

- A four percent extension in time to exhaustion 

- A three percent advancement in vertical jump 

- A two percent improvement in broad jump 

- A four percent reduction in 20-meter sprint time 

- A two percent reduction in 40-meter sprint time 


Beyond these physical advancements, a custom-fitted mouthpiece could also wield a positive influence on one's mindset. According to General Dentistry, individuals wearing a mouthpiece during submaximal lifts reported feeling stronger and less encumbered.
