Will This Lead to Jaw-Dropping Results?

Athletes at Rutgers will be trying out a new mouthguard that safely reproduces some of the effects of steroids and the human growth hormone.

The Pure Power Mouthguard, manufactured by Pure Power Athletics Group, uses bilateral electrical stimulation to relax face muscles, allowing the rest of the body to work more effectively.

Ninety percent of people don't align their jaws properly, according to the manufacturer's site, which causes facial muscles to be "unhappy." The company said there was a physical connection between these muscles and body posture, which in turn has an impact on athletic performance.

Seattle Seahawk kicker Josh Brown tested the device this past season and while it's unclear if he was paid for his endorsement, it certainly sounds like he's on the company payroll.

"I'm a field goal kicker so at first I thought: Why would I need a mouth guard? But it really did help me this past season. I had five or six tackles which is incredible for a kicker. The mouthguard also helped me run faster because my body was in its optimum position."

The mouthguards are not cheap, running between $800-$1,600 each. And you'll have to visit a Pure Power Mouthguard dentist beforehand.

I don't know if WTF or .... is the correct response.

this is a joke. What is this coming to?? If I live out my life to the expectancy, I might see robots playing football instead of humans.

Why are you guys so skeptical? A professional football player said, "The mouthguard helped me run faster because my body was in its optimum position."

What's that? He's a kicker??? Never mind, I thought he was a football player.

I love these comments, because we get these kind of comments everytime we fit a pro athlete, and then when they experience the results , they do not want to tell anybody, because they want to keep it a secret to themselves. Everybody loves the EDGE. It is easy to critize a product , when you have never tried it, but I challenge you to get one and notice the results. If you do not notice the difference, I will personally refund your money.

Chi Chi Rodriguez wears a magnetic bracelet to improve his golf game. Doesn't prove it works.
