The Adventurous Spirit of Odd Balls
Whether it's a steep summit climb or a serene kayak trip, every outdoor adventure deserves a snack that's as extraordinary as the journey itself. Odd Balls, a product of our skier/cancer thriver owned business, is not your average energy ball. Infused with our unique Funguy Blend of Lion's Mane and Cordyceps mushrooms, these organic energy balls are designed to fuel your outdoor adventures and support your long-term health.
Our founder, Jon Carter, discovered the extraordinary benefits of functional mushrooms during his treatment for testicular cancer. They bolstered his stamina and kept him clear-headed, even during the toughest days of chemotherapy. Inspired by his experience, Jon developed Odd Balls to share the power of these fungi with others.
Now, every bite of Odd Balls is a symbol of resilience, a reminder to check for odd balls, bumps, or lumps, and a contribution to supporting young adults impacted by cancer.
Energy for the Journey: The Benefits of Odd Balls
When you're out in the great outdoors, you need a snack that can keep up with you. That's where Odd Balls come in. Made with a delicious blend of almonds, cashews, dates, lemon juice, a touch of coconut, and our special Funguy Blend, Odd Balls provide a natural energy boost that's perfect for any outdoor adventure. The natural sugars in the dates provide a steady release of energy, keeping you fueled without the crash associated with artificial sugars.
Our energy balls also contain complete electrolytes, a crucial component for maintaining hydration and muscle function during physical activity. These electrolytes come from a blend of ingredients including Himalayan rock salt, which provides sodium, and lemon juice, a natural source of potassium. These minerals help to maintain fluid balance in the body, preventing dehydration during your outdoor adventures.
One of the key ingredients in our Funguy Blend is Cordyceps mushrooms. Known for their stamina-enhancing properties, Cordyceps have been used in traditional medicine to increase energy and endurance. This makes them an ideal ingredient for an energy snack designed for the rigors of outdoor activities.
Focus and Clarity: How Odd Balls Enhance Your Outdoor Adventures
Outdoor adventures require more than just physical stamina. Whether you're navigating a tricky trail or taking in the breathtaking views from a mountaintop, focus and clarity are key. That's where the Lion's Mane mushrooms in our Funguy Blend come in. These functional mushrooms are known to enhance cognitive function, helping you stay sharp and present during your adventures.
Having focus and clarity is especially important in serious outdoor situations. Whether you're climbing a challenging peak or navigating a rapid river, a clear mind can make the difference between a successful adventure and a dangerous situation. Lion's Mane mushrooms can support your mental clarity, helping you make quick decisions and stay aware of your surroundings. This makes Odd Balls not just a snack, but a vital part of your outdoor safety toolkit.
Immune Health: Staying Healthy on the Go
At Odd Balls, we're not just about fueling your adventures. We're also dedicated to supporting your long-term health. Our Funguy Blend, featuring Lion's Mane and Cordyceps mushrooms, is rich in Beta Glucans, compounds known for their immune-boosting properties.
Beta Glucans are a type of soluble fiber that can stimulate the immune system, enhancing its ability to fight off infections and diseases. This is an added benefit to exercising in the outdoors and eating healthy food that benefits your body for the long-term. With Odd Balls, you're not just getting an energy snack, you're investing in your long-term health and wellbeing.
