My Experience with HUM Nutrition

We all want to see the best version of ourselves. We also all have things about ourselves and our health that we would like and could use a little help with. A lot of these things we want to change, however, is something that makeup or skin care can’t fix on their own.

I have always been interested in supplemental vitamins and pills. How do they work? Do they work? How fast will I see results? I’ve taken supplements before, but I always would give them up because I wouldn’t see the results I wanted fast enough and because of that, I would forget to take them.

I found out about HUM Nutrition when I was doing some research on supplements. I’m IMG_9400not sure why exactly I started to get really interested into taking a supplement, but I was in the market for something that would actually work. Before I go any further, I need to do a quick disclaimer that I am no affiliated or sponsored by this brand in any way (except if you are interested… @HUMNutrition) and all these thoughts and opinions are personal and my own.

I chose to try out HUM for several reasons. First of all, the brand itself has a lot of great reviews and has been featured in magazines such as Vogue and Glamour. With such huge followings, it would be very risky to promote a brand that wouldn’t work and it made me take this brand more seriously.

Secondly, it is very affordable. Most of the products on the site range from $10-$25 with the exception of a few $30 products. A lot of supplements on the market are very pricey, and I wasn’t about to spend $60 on a month’s worth of pills when I wasn’t even sure if they worked. HUM Nutrition also offers a sort of subscription that will help you to save money, and when you buy 3, you get a discount.

Thirdly, HUM is very unique in that you get a free “personal nutritionist” that will tell you what you should be taking based on a short quiz. For example, if you are concerned about your skin, they will recommend the best supplement to take for your wants and needs.

Lastly, they have tons of different supplements to cater to your wants and needs, but also offers different types of the same thing. In other words, there are several that claim to help with your skin, but they all offer different things depending on you.

HUM makes the claim that for most of their products, you should see results within 6 weeks. I have just received my third shipment in the mail, making this my 3rd month using HUM. So, have I seen results? Will I continue to purchase?

The answer to both of those questions is yes. Yes, I have seen results and yes, I will continue to use them. If you’re curious on the details of my experience thus far, keep reading and I will give you all the details and try to answer any questions you might have!


Before I can go into detail about the results I’ve been seeing, I should also mention other factors that might be contributing to said results.
