If you’ve ever been into a Sephora, you may have seen the HUM Vitamin and Supplement line on shelves. They take a personalized approach to supplements, starting with asking you to take a Hum quiz which helps you discover vitamins and supplements to help improve your skin, hair and body. After you take the quiz, you are assigned a personal Nutritionist who answers nutritional questions to help you better achieve your goals. Their products are GMO and gluten free and they tout that they’re 100% natural.
They sell products for dry skin, anti-aging, blemishes, weight issues, detox and cleanse, hair health and overall body. This is how the process works:
Take a 3 Minute Quiz: this helps them create a personal vitamin and supplement profile.
Free Nutritionist Report: Your personal registered dietitian then reviews your data and sends you a personal profile and nutrient recommendation.
Based on that report, you can purchase the supplements that you’d like to try out. Here are some of the products we are putting to the test over the next couple of months.
The 21 Day Cleanse: It boasts digestive enzymes to help with weight control and runs for 21 days.
The regiment has the following ingredients to cleanse you from the inside out: organic Chlorella (detoxifying green algae), Bladderwrack Cleansing Kelp, Beetroot, Red Clover, which is a skin cleansing extract, Dandelion Root which is also very detoxifying, Oregon Grape, Milk Thistle (this is a great liver cleansing herb), Alpha Lipoic Acid, Zinc from Amino Acid Chelate, Selenium from L-Selenomethionine (pictured below), Protease 3.0, a Protein Catalyst, Neutral Bacterial Protease (a Protein Catalyst), Papain, Lipase, a fat busting enzyme, Amylase (a carb busting enzyme – YAY), Hemicellulase (a fiber busting enzyme), Beta-Glucanase and Phytase (also a fiber busting enzyme), Lactase (a milk sugar busting enzyme), Ginger (Rhizome), Peppermint (Leaf), Fennel and Bromelain (Pineapple Proteolytic Enzyme).
What else is cool about their site is that you can SEE and read about the nutritionists they have in their system, so you know their background, where they’re based and what their specialty is, if they have one. Have a look — it’s a very personalized approach.
The idea of HUM was born out of the founder Walter’s personal struggle with his skin and breakouts. Years of trying topical products and prescription drugs had literally left him scared emotionally and physically. Many of the drugs prescribed worked only on a temporary basis and the breakouts returned year after year. Walter always felt that there was a link between nutrition and his skin but research in the area was hard to come by, with the majority of dermatologists not trained in the field of nutrition. It was only after he met with one of London’s most forward thinking nutritionists that he was able to fix his skin once and for all.
The company started in London, then moved to New York and later to Northern California, where they met up with leaders in the field of nutrition to further discuss expand the idea of HUM. It was this team that helped them formulate their supplements by matching customers beauty & wellness goals with the latest in nutritional research and….it’s all done online.

Disclosure: we were sent a package of supplements to test out by HUM, however we were not asked to write a review or told what to say. I do not claim that these products will help you with any issue you have — I am not a doctor, a nutritionist, a nurse or practice in the medical profession at all so am merely writing this to make you aware that HUM exists. As always, you should talk to your doctor about anything that you take, whether it be a supplement or a cleanse product – be sure to discuss with your medical doctor before making any decision and do what’s best for you based on that medical advice.
