    What is Mewing?

     Mewing tongue posture

         

        Mewing is the process of flattening your entire tongue on the roof of the mouth. As well as breathing through you nose and maintaining good back posture.

           Over time, this tongue position will realign your teeth and change your facial structure. To mew correctly, you should relax your tongue and make sure it's resting entirely against your palate (roof of your mouth) using a mixture of suction and pressure.

           This is the natural, healthy tongue placement we are supposed to have. In fact, before modern times, everyone did! But modern lifestyles have made it feel unnatural. Learn more about mewing here.

         

        ✅ PROS

        • 🫁 Keeps Air in Your Lungs Longer – our nostrils are smaller than our mouth, so it takes longer for us to exhale. This can mean up to 20% more oxygen uptake into your bloodstream compared to mouth breathing = more energy!
        • 💨 Humidified Air – your nasal passage warms air (by up to 40ºF) on the way from your nose to your lungs. This is important in cold weather.
        • 🦠 Removes Germs and Pathogens – your nasal passage filters out significant amounts of bacteria and other pathogens during each lung full of air. Nose breathers get sick less often.
        • 🧘‍♀️ Less Breathing Interruption – when you inhale and exhale through your nose, it's easier to breathe while chewing, drinking, talking or exercising. That "extra" oxygen you get from nose breathing goes a long way.
        • 💧Increased Hydration – each exhalation from the mouth expels water. This is particularly important during exercise, where mouth breathers become tired and dehydrated earlier.
        • 🦷 Straighter Teeth – proper posture exerts pressure on the maxilla which helps widen the dental arch, which allows space for orthodontic tooth movement and proper alignment.
        • 😯 Tighter Skin Around Chin and Neck – mewing is the best way to get rid of a double chin and make your jawline more defined.
        • 💎 Prominent Cheekbones and a Sharper Jawline – you'll notice more prominent cheekbones and hollow cheeks after you've been mewing for a few months. The chin can become more prominent and the jaw widens.
        • 🛌 No Snoring, No Sleep Apnea – reduced nasal obstruction helps prevent snoring and results in better, deeper sleep. Mewing is used to treat people with problems sleeping such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome.

         

         

        ❌ CONS

        • 🕰 Takes a Long Time – changing your facial bone structure, fixing an overbite and expanding your maxilla doesn't happen over night. If you're a teenager you can see results in a matter of months. The older you are, the longer it will take to see results.
        • 😑 Easy to Get Wrong – if it doesn't come natural to you... you have to be very careful what you're doing. Many people try to force the posture too much and end up doing more harm than good. Facial asymmetry and crooked teeth can be the end result. Don't make these mistakes.
        • 🧠 Maybe You're Already Doing it? – if that's the case, you've got nothing more to gain here. However, I estimate that about 80% of people could have better tongue posture and nose breathing.

         

         

         

         

        What is Chisell?

        Chisell is a jaw exercise exercise device made by a Latvian company. By placing them on your molar teeth and biting down, the resistance supplied with cause your jaw muscles to hypertrophy.

           It works in the same way any other weighted muscle-building exerciser works: you stress the muscle and create tears in the fibers. The muscle heals and repairs to be bigger and stronger.

         

        ✅ PROS

        • 💪 Works the Masseter Muscle: Chisell is molar-based trainers which means they train the main muscle on the side of your jaw. Other exercisers stimulate the temporalis muscle on the side of your head, above your year
        • 🧱 More Resistance, Different Levels – work your way up to higher resistances as your face gets stronger. You get better results that way. 
        • 🦴 Zero Joint Damage: chewing a small object (or food) is a natural movement for your jaw, teeth and gums. You won't stress any muscles, joints or get TMJ. I can't say the same for some of the other jawline exercisers
        • 👑 Consistent Quality – with Chisell, you know what the resistance is, and it doesn't change. Natural gums can be very inconsistent. Sometimes it's rock-hard (with gritty pieces in it), other times it's the stickiest thing you've ever felt
        • 🎨 Less Risk of Developing Asymmetry – you put one Jawliner in each side of your mouth, on your molars. The workout is the same for both sides of your face. With chewing gum... it's just one ball in your mouth. It's very common that people chew mainly on one side. Obviously, that side becomes more developed that the other
          • 🧰 Easy to Carry Around: it comes in a convenient container that fits in your pocket. You can easily take them around with you. After usage, they could be covered in saliva- so you can just put them straight into the container

             

            ❌ CONS

            • 🏚 They Break: Chisell is made from only one type of silicon. These are prone to breaking as the teeth pierce them and create fractures in the material. 
            • 🚙 Can't Chew Anywhere, Anytime – you can chew gum while you're working, driving, training or doing whatever. Rubber exercisers like Chisell are a little more awkward... you usually have to dedicate part of your day to using it
            • ⚛️ Not Tested or FDA Approved: they don't say anywhere is they've been tested or approved by a governing body. We'll have to assume they haven't. We don't know what materials the Chisell is made of... which poses a large risk to the user.
            • 🚢 Slow Shipping (Might Not Arrive): in most cases you'll get your money back...
            • 📲 They're Hard to Contact: if you want a refund or your capsules don't arrive, it can be hard to get into contact with them. I'm just saying that things may take longer than expected

            🏁 CONCLUSION 🏁

            They're both beneficial for your appearance... and they do different things, so I can't say that one is better than the other.

               Mewing is fantastic for your long-term health and will change your face shape (slowly) to give a better foundation to build upon.

               Using molar-based jawline exercisers like Chisell will build your masseter muscles and give you a strong, masculine jawline.

               Combine both, and you will greatly improve your appearance and health. In fact, that's 67% of my jawline formula. The other 33% is slimming. You need to slim down and lose weight on your face to make sure your jawline is visible.
