The Myo Munchee is a small chewing device made of soft, medical grade silicone.
Characteristics: shaped like a mouthguard, with a handle attached, the mouthpiece is soft, but durable, with lots of silicone prongs, which massage the teeth and gums.

The original premise of the development of the Myo Munchee was for gum health and oral hygiene. Over time, it became clear that there were many more benefits to be had from chewing a Myo Munchee.

Chewing enhances the strength of jaw and mouth muscles to assist in optimal oral health and function. The jaw and facial muscles need the right kind of exercise/movement to stay healthy.

With just 10 minutes of daily chewing exercise, children and adults can improve the tone and function of muscles of the lips, face and jaws. Why is this? Because the Munchee also encourages lip closure, correct resting tongue placement & swallow pattern and promotes nasal breathing.

Unfortunately, in the last hundred years, the western industrialized lifestyle—with its soft foods, reduced nutritional diversity, and rapidly decreasing range of exercise— has essentially removed natural cues for healthy oral development. Because of this lifestyle, the modern individual will benefit from more chewing and eating less processed foods, for more than the obvious health/weight/holistic reasons.

How do I use a Myo Munchee?

Prior to the first use, rinse the Munchee.

Ensure the Munchee is placed in the mouth with the “lips” indent/notch at the top.  First and foremost, always keep the lips closed around the Myo Munchee while chewing, this not only strengthens the muscles, but also prevents excessive wear on the device.

Keep your chewing even on both sides, chewing excessively or exclusively on one side may damage or weaken the Munchee.

Rinse after use in cold running water and dry thoroughly. Aim for 5 minutes of active chewing, twice a day as an ideal protocol.

Storage: once dry, please store your Munchee out of UV light in a place that allows air circulation around the Myo Munchee.
