About Hum Nutrition

Hum Nutrition Review

A healthy diet[1] including all the essential macro and micronutrients is vital for our physical and mental health[2]. The best way to incorporate essential nutrients is by consuming whole foods. 

Unfortunately, sticking to healthy choices is not easy. When our nutritional requirements are not met with the proper diet, it may be necessary to complement it with supplements. But before starting to take diet supplements, speaking to a professional is recommended[3].

Hum Nutrition is a dietary supplement brand for men and women that connects customers with a free personal nutritionist who suggests products to help support their health and beauty goals. This process involves completing a 3-minute Hum Nutrition quiz, which helps the personal nutritionist determine which Hum supplements are most suitable.

With a substantial following of 234k followers on Instagram and 113.5k followers on Facebook, it is no wonder that Hum has been mentioned on Forbes, mindbodygreen, Refinery29, well+good, Vogue, and Allure. We wanted to know if Hum Nutrition is as good as it sounds.

This Hum Nutrition review will take a good look at their supplements, including what they’re made of, claims made by the company, customer feedback, promotions, and more to help you decide if they’re worth trying out. 

Overview of Hum Nutrition

Hum Nutrition Review

Co-Founder of Hum, Walter Faulstroh, once struggled with breakouts. He desperately tried topical products and prescription drugs that did more harm than good. He felt that there may have been a link between his nutrition and his skin, but there wasn’t enough scientific evidence at the time to prove it. After meeting with a progressive-thinking dermatologist, Walter was inspired to create Hum Nutrition.

Hum headquarters are located in West Hollywood, CA, and their supplements are made in a high-tech facility in Southern California. They have a Hum Nutrition Canada location as well, with strict quality standards and a mission to become “the best beauty nutrition business in the world.” 

What is Hum Nutrition made of?

Hum’s dietary supplements are made with the utmost care, triple tested for purity, and verified by Hum Nutrition third party testing labs for potency. Plus, the claims they make are supported by clinical research

So, is Hum Nutrition FDA-approved? Well, the FDA doesn’t approve dietary supplements, instead regulating them as food products. So Hum is responsible for making sure their products are safe and useful.

How Does Hum Nutrition Work?

Hum Nutrition Review

Start by taking the free quiz on the homepage by clicking “Get Started”. Once you receive your recommended supplements based on your answers in the test, you can add them to your cart and choose either a Monthly or 3 Month plan at checkout. If you don’t wish to buy the supplements they recommend to you, you can add whichever ones you do want and proceed with checkout. 

The Monthly Plan involves no commitment. Orders are automatically shipped to you monthly and you can cancel any time. If you’d like to change the supplements in your monthly shipping, you can do so via your Account Page, where you can also request samples of supplements you’d like to try. 

The 3 Month Plan gives you 25% off your order and is automatically shipped to you every month for 3 months. Once your 3 months are over, you will be automatically switched to the Monthly Plan, but with the same savings as the 3 Month Plan! Please note that if you cancel your 3 Month Plan before the last payment has been processed, you will be charged back the discounts you received while on the plan. 

You can always modify your order if you need to change anything, and Hum even sends a reminder email 7 days before shipping in case you need to do so. You can also change your ship date if you need your orders spaced out. 

Hum recommends using their supplements for 3 months to see the results. However, if you want to buy just one product, you can. If you buy 3 products though, you can save 15%.  This Hum Nutrition review will now go over a few of their supplements that work best when part of a 3 Month Subscription Plan

Hum Nutrition Hair Sweet Hair Review

Get long, strong, healthy hair when taking this fun and delicious supplement as part of a 3 Month Hum Subscription. Hair Sweet Hair is a supplement for stronger and healthier hair by supporting hair growth, maintaining the health of hair follicles, and maintaining healthy color

Ingredients in Hair Sweet Hair include Fo-Ti (a Chinese traditional herb), Biotin, Folic Acid, Zinc, PABA (Para-aminobenzoic acid), and Vitamin B12. 

Some studies suggest that Fo-Ti[4] (P. multiflorum) may prevent hair graying and support hair growth. Although very infrequent, there have been reported cases of hepatitis[5], related to the use of Fo-Ti. However, there is insufficient evidence[6] to recommend folic acid or zinc for hair growth or follicle support.

Each bottle includes 60 gummies, and you take two once per day (one bottle equals one month).

 

Bought as a first-time purchase with the 3-month subscription, you can receive three different discounts (Buy 3 Savings, Plan discount, and Coupon Discount) bringing your total to $38 for 3 months worth, or buy as a single purchase for $25.

Hum Nutrition Daily Cleanse Review 

Daily Cleanse cleans you from the inside out by getting rid of toxins that cause breakouts and improving skin clarity by aiding digestion and detoxification. The Daily Cleanse supplement is proven to be 80% effective in improving skin when taken as part of a 3 Month Subscription

Ingredients found in the Daily Cleanse include: Chlorella, Beet Root, Red Clover, Dandelion Leaf, Oregon Grape Root, Milk Thistle, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Spirulina, and Matcha Green Tea. One bottle contains 60 vegan capsules and you take two pills once per day (30-day supply).

Bought as a first-time purchase with the 3-month subscription, you cash in on 3 different discounts (Buy 3 Savings, Plan discount, Coupon Discount) bringing your total to $38 for 3 months, or buy as a single purchase for $25.

Hum Nutrition Gut Instinct Review

Gut Instinct knows what’s up when it comes to balancing digestion. You may not know, but an unhealthy digestive system can negatively affect our overall health, mood, and energy. This Hum Nutrition supplement boosts good bacteria and your immune system to promote overall health and wellbeing

Ingredients in Gut Instinct include: Acidophilus, Lactis, Plantarum, Longum, Rhamnosus, Thermophilus, Paracasei, Breve, and Salivarius. Each bottle of Gut Instinct contains 30 vegan capsules. You take one per day at any time on an empty stomach

Probiotics[7] have been widely studied and have proven to help regulate gut microbiota, have anti-inflammatory effects, and stimulate the propulsive colonic function.

Hum Nutrition Mighty Night Review 

Renew your skin when taking Mighty Night as part of a 3 Month Subscription Plan. This supplement helps to reverse the signs of early aging by protecting skin from dryness, loss of elasticity, and roughness. The supplement uses ceramides (an important part of lipid structure) to restore our skin’s lipid barrier that breaks down as we get older. 

Ingredients in Mighty Night include Ferulic Acid, CoQ10, Valerian Root, Passion Flower, and Hops. One bottle of Mighty Night contains 60 (not vegan) softgels. Two softgels are taken at bedtime (hence the name), with or without food

As part of a 3-month Subscription and first-time purchase, you save with 3 different discounts (Buy 3 Savings, Plan discount, Coupon Discount) bringing your total to $67 for 3 months. A 1-month supply costs $40.

Hum Nutrition Raw Beauty Review 

Raw Beauty solves one of the biggest problems when it comes to trying to lose or maintain a healthy weight: snacking. By keeping you feeling full and satisfied, you’re more likely to stay away from the unhealthy snacks that call out to you from inside the cupboard. 

It’s made from 30+ superfoods that promote good skin, increase energy, and contain ingredients such as Barley Grass, Wheatgrass, Chlorella, Spirulina, Alfalfa Grass, and Licorice Root Powder. For a full list of ingredients, head over to the official Hum Nutrition website. 

Barley grass[8] showed anti-obesity activity in animal models. Although better quality studies are needed, current evidence shows that spirulina[9] helps with weight loss and reducing blood lipids. For a full list of ingredients, head over to the official Hum Nutrition[10] website.

Raw Beauty is claimed to help  boost energy, give you radiant skin, and rev up your metabolism when taking it as part of a 3 Month Subscription Plan. Although larger studies are required for better quality results, ginseng[11] roots have proven efficacy in relieving fatigue.

A study[12] showed that Ashwagandha may improve resistance under stressful situations, while Rhodiola rosea[13] appears to boost energy and have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.  A container of Raw Beauty has 30 servings, with only 30 calories per serving. To use, mix one scoop with water or milk and enjoy its mint chocolate flavor.

As part of a 3-month Subscription as a first-time purchase, you save with 3 different discounts (Buy 3 Savings, Plan discount, Coupon Discount) bringing your total to $65 for a 3-month supply. A 1-month supply of Raw Beauty costs $39.

Hum Nutrition Private Party Review

Life can be tough, but it can get a little better with Private Party. Hormones, stress, and medications mess with vaginal health. This potent probiotic and mineral supplement supports vaginal and urinary health[14] by maintaining yeast balance, promoting healthy vaginal pH and microbiome, and preventing urinary tract infections[15].

This Hum Nutrition supplement is great for those who suffer from Bacterial Vaginosis, recurring UTIs, or frequent yeast infections, as well as other issues. Private Party contains Cranberry PACs, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, and Lactobacillus Reuteri. 

One bottle of Private Party contains 30 vegan capsules. Take one pill taken once a day at any time, with or without food.

Taking Private Party regularly has helped to decrease my infections, I’ve not had an infection since I started taking 3+ months ago!” 

As part of a 3-month Subscription as a first-time purchase, save with 3 different discounts (Buy 3 Savings, Plan discount, Coupon Discount) bringing your total to $38 for 3 months worth, or buy as a single purchase for $25.

Hum Nutrition Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Hum Nutrition Review

If we’re being honest, it’s not exactly clear. On the brand website, customers rate Hum products on average between 4-5 stars and there are thousands of positive reviews, like this one:

This was one of the best supplement I have tried. Helped with my occasional breakouts and made my skin radiant. I had pair it up with Private Party during midday and Nighty Might at night. My skin glows when I wake up the next day. I’m hooked for life.” 

However, there are many complaints from Hum Nutrition customers too. The brand has 2/5 stars on BBB, but an A+ accreditation as all complaints were resolved. 

Most issues revolve around delayed refunds, inaccessible Hum Nutrition customer service, products not working, or causing a bad skin reaction.

That said, reviewers seem to know that supplements work differently on different people, so they don’t suggest skipping out on the brand altogether. Instead, they suggest the following: 

  • Note the brand’s price tags since it’s not the most affordable.
  • Take things one day at a time to see how you react personally.

Is Hum Nutrition Worth It?

This Hum Nutrition review feels that nutritional supplementation is tricky, especially when everyone is so different. We all have different diets, different nutritional needs, different DNA. When it comes to the question: Do Hum products really work?

Based on the reviews found on and off the brand website, there seem to be mixed results that customers are having when it comes to the products as well as customer service interactions. There are no significant red flags when it comes to Hum Nutrition, but you should approach taking their supplements just as you would trying anything new: slowly.

After everything we have covered so far, you are probably asking yourself: Are Hum vitamins legit? When looking at their ingredients, the scientific claims, and the plethora of positive reviews, this Hum Nutrition review concludes that the supplements will work, for some.

Overall, Hum Nutrition is worth a try, especially if you’ve been searching for a solution to an ongoing problem.
