Hollywood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 5/16/2022 – The functional mushroom revolution is upon us and the trio behind Umbo is at its forefront. Comprised of UFC Champion Rashad Evans, NFL Quarterback Jake Plummer and advocate/educator Del Jolly, this team has come together to co-found Umbo, a company that believes functional mushrooms have immense possibilities and are committed to exploring that journey.
Jolly, Co-Founder and President of Umbo, began his mission to get functional and medicinal mushrooms out into the world after learning about the benefits of plant medicine and seeing how limited their role and availability are in modern medicine. He educated himself, inspired to have a better understanding of the benefits mushrooms had to offer, and then took his passion to the lawmakers, working hard to decriminalize psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychedelic compound found in a variety of mushrooms.
Together with his athletic partners, Umbo is designed to put forth good things along with having a social corporate responsibility. While the fight to get psilocybin mushrooms legalized will take time, there are Umbo products on the market that utilize the legal parts of a variety of mushrooms – Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps militaris, Reishi, Turkey Tail and Shiitake. They deliver aid in balancing the mind and the body, in terms of energy, sleep, circulation, memory and cognition.
Currently, Umbo has a Functional Mushroom Bar in Honey Walnut Pecan flavor and it is out-of-this-world delicious. Whether you like mushrooms or not, this dense bar’s flavor of honey and nuts will leave you wanting more, not to mention the satisfying texture of both crunch and softness that will likely appeal to most palates. It’s great for those looking for an energy bar that is filling and tastes good! Mushroom capsules are also available for purchase, designed to aid in optimizing your morning or helping you get a more restful sleep.
As Jolly explains, Umbo products are a great way “to introduce more mushrooms into your life for a better quality of life.” And considering mushrooms have become one of the fastest growing sections within the health industry, now’s a great time to learn more. And Umbo is helping you do so. Give their products a try and experience the benefits of functional mushrooms for yourself!
