Conducted at The Citadel, the study showed that cortisol levels were lowered by 51 percent at 10 minutes post-exercise in the participants wearing the mouthpiece vs. those who did not. Cortisol levels were measured on all the participants (college football players) before, during and after a 60-minute session of intense resistance training.
