Have you ever wanted clearer skin, thicker hair, or stronger nails? Do you feel tired or stressed? Experience digestive problems or have trouble with your weight?
We have probably all experienced one or another of these problems at some point in time. Dealing with these issues is frustrating and keeps us from looking and feeling our best. And often, problems that appear superficial are actually caused by lifestyle stressors and nutritional deficiencies.
The best way to solve health and beauty concerns is not by masking symptoms, but by healing through nutritional solutions. That is the philosophy of HUM Nutrition, a dietary supplement company founded in 2012. If their claims can be believed, their specially formulated products can help solve all the issues mentioned above and more.
Can these claims be backed up? Let’s take a closer look.
Beauty from within, supported by science.
The primary goal of HUM Nutrition supplements is to provide nutrients that work with your body to solve health and beauty concerns. They are interested in using only the ingredients that are most effective for the purpose of each supplement. To this end, registered dietitians and researchers are consulted throughout the product development process.
The benefits of all the nutrients and ingredients used by HUM Nutrition are substantially supported by scientific research. One of my favorite features of their website is the transparency about the scientific process. Each product description includes an easy-to-understand explanation of the evidence behind the active ingredients.
Personalized supplements delivered to your doorstep.
All the HUM Nutrition supplements are designed using input from registered dietitians and evidence from clinical research. But they want go a step further to ensure that the supplements are right for you and your concerns. On their website, you can take a short personal evaluation to receive recommendations for three of their products.
When I took the evaluation, I honestly answered the questions about my lifestyle (yes, I sometimes snack on chocolate and chips) and mentioned some concerns about my hair and skin. My recommendations include Daily Cleanse (a detoxifying blend of algae, herbs, and minerals), Base Control (a basic multivitamin), and Hair Sweet Hair (gummy vitamins for hair growth).
I think that these recommendations are pretty well-matched to my needs. The only complaint I have is that the Base Control supplement is vegetarian but not vegan. The product description does not make it apparent which ingredients are derived from animals, but I suspect it is the vitamin D3. Although there are vegan vitamin D3 supplements available, vitamin D3 is usually derived from sheep’s wool. I would have appreciated an option to only have vegan supplements recommended to me.
Purity and sustainability.
As well as being evidence-based and personalized, HUM Nutrition prides itself on high purity and quality standards. They claim to surpass the strictest quality standards in the manufacturing process. All ingredients are tested for purity, and no fillers such as artificial colors, flavors, or ingredients are used. In addition, all supplements are gluten free, so those with gluten sensitivities can freely enjoy the products.
One of the features of HUM Nutrition that I appreciate the most is their focus on sustainable practices. All manufacturing takes place at facilities in California, reducing transportation to and from the central office in LA. They also reduce packaging as much as possible and use only completely recyclable materials, including PET for supplement bottles.
HUM Nutrition also makes an effort to source ingredients sustainably, and they use non-GMO ingredients. (I should add that the impact of GMOs on the environment is a topic still under debate.) Finally, the majority of their products are plant-based, but there are a few exceptions. My feelings about this are mixed.
Of course, I wish they would take advantage of the vegan alternatives that are available for all their animal-based ingredients. This would show an even stronger commitment to sustainable and ethical sourcing. However, I do give them credit for acknowledging the negative impacts of animal agriculture and making efforts toward reduction.
Loved by media and customers alike.
There is no doubt about it: HUM Nutrition has been successful in creating a popular brand. Their products have been featured in numerous major media outlets, and they have a blog and several active social media pages. With almost 200k followers on Instagram, they clearly have a devoted customer base.
There is no doubt that HUM Nutrition’s bright, colorful marketing techniques help attract buyers. But based on the rave reviews, it is the effectiveness of the products that makes loyal customers. From hair, skin, and nail enhancement to sleep, weight loss, and energy support, there is a supplement for almost any health and beauty goal. They even offer three flavors of green super food powder which can be mixed into any drink for a quick energy boost.
Of course, the products do not work for everyone, but overall reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Many customers report seeing tangible benefits within a few weeks. For stubborn problems such as acne and irregular digestion, these results are impressive.
A new approach to personal care.
Based on the research I have done, my impressions of HUM Nutrition are very positive. Their commitment to evidence-based ingredients, quality, and sustainable practices are all solid points in their favor. I also appreciate their holistic, inside-out approach to health and beauty. They provide specialized blends of ingredients for all types of concerns while emphasizing the importance of a healthy lifestyle. It might seem hard to choose from the wide variety of products, but the personal evaluation will point you in the right direction.
After taking the evaluation and receiving my supplement recommendations, I am waiting for a free personalized report from one of the registered dietitians at HUM Nutrition. In the meantime, I am signing up for three months of Hair Sweet Hair and Daily Cleanse, the two vegan supplements which were recommended to me. I am hoping to experience clearer skin and improved digestion from Daily Cleanse and increased hair growth from Hair Sweet Hair. I look forward to providing full reviews of these products once I have received them and used them for a few weeks.
