All-Natural Support For Athletes

Athletes have been missing out on mushrooms for too long. It’s an entire kingdom, filled with nothing but all-natural potential, including compounds not found anywhere else in the world. They’ve helped us get our minds and bodies more into the game and perform at a ridiculously high level — and think they can help you too.

Inspired Vision

What happens when two elite, professional athletes and a natural medicine advocate get together to unearth the all-natural potential of functional mushrooms? UMBO happens!

When Rashad and Jake were professional athletes, they played at an elite level, among the best to play their respective sports. Over time, they came to understand that athletes have been missing out on mushrooms for too long. It’s an entire kingdom, filled with nothing but all-natural potential, including compounds not found anywhere else in the world. They helped our founders get their minds and bodies more into the game and perform at a ridiculously high level. We challenge you to see what functional mushrooms can do for you.

Unlike Any Other Bar

There are two tasty ways to get your daily dose of mushrooms. Choose either UMBO’s Dairy-Free Macadamia Cashew Functional Mushroom Bar or their Functional Mushroom Bar. Both are packed with flavor and 2,500mg of five functional mushrooms. What’s the difference?

If you want a dairy-free bar grab the salty crunch of macadamia nuts and cashews plus the sweetness of pure honey paired with a subtle hint of coconut cream. The Functional Mushroom Bar has the rich flavors of pure honey, California walnuts, golden pecans, and toasty sunflower kernels which add a satisfying crunch and naturally sweet finish.

About UMBO

Behold…the newest health food…functional mushrooms. Except, functional mushrooms aren’t exactly new.

Humans have used plants, mushrooms and countless other natural resources in healing. In fact, many cultures and civilizations have been harnessing the power of mushrooms for thousands of years.

Functional mushrooms look like a glamorous health product from afar, but the benefits of the mushrooms are rooted in science. Out of the currently recognized 2,000 species of mushrooms considered to be medicinal or edible, only 15 are recognized as functional. This list is comprised of adaptogenic and medicinal mushrooms. UMBO is focused on 

An adaptogen is a substance that helps to reduce the negative effects of stress on the body. On the other hand, medical mushrooms are known to have related physiological effects. These can be anything from healthy digestion, to improved cardiac performance. It is important to note that adaptogenic and medicinal are not the same thing. Mushrooms in either category work differently in the body.

Triple Extracted Tinctures

The three steps of the triple extraction process takes approximately 120 days. Here’s how it works:

  1. Fermentation: A fermentation process breaks down the chitin (the tough outer cell walls) to ensure our bodies will absorb and use the active compounds in the mushrooms.
  2. Water Extraction: Frees the alpha- and beta-glucans, along with other polysaccharides.  Organic Alcohol
  3. Extraction: Draws out other active compounds, including non-polar triterpenoids. Then we remove the alcohol and stabilize the tincture, using organic vegetable glycerin.

UMBO’s meticulous triple extraction process, ensures that every drop is packed with the goodness of each adaptogenic mushroom tincture. The Vegan-friendly formula with a glycerite extraction aid, ensures that the alcohol content remains minimal, less than 1%.
