Though we all know that we should get all our essential vitamins and minerals from our diets, it doesn’t always happen. Juggling a busy lifestyle and getting in your B12 can be difficult. And as we encounter different life stages and health concerns, there’s a lot of information out there about what ingredients may benefit our well-being (some more legitimate than others). With so many vitamin and nutrient supplements to choose from, how do you decide what direction to go?

Over the past decade, many supplement companies have started targeting emotional wellness and beauty, and it’s easy to see why — the former is so vital to our well-being that the U.S. Surgeon General previously described it as one of the three pillars of health.

One such supplement brand is HUM Nutrition, which emerged in 2012 and has continued to grow. HUM offers specialized supplements aimed toward common concerns (like acne, bloating, and hair health), with sleek marketing and a convenient subscription program. But are HUM’s formulations actually effective? We’ve thoroughly evaluated HUM’s product line to help you determine if they’re the right choice for you.

Our Findings

Editor's Rating4.25

HUM Nutrition offers a personalized supplement subscription service with products geared toward the skin, women’s health, mood, body (including gut health and immunity), hair, and nails. While more expensive than some competitors, the company offers steep discounts through its subscription program. However, some products have ingredients with low dosages or a lack of scientific research to support their inclusion. Despite this, HUM’s products are non-GMO, third-party tested for quality and safety, and the company has excellent customer service. Overall, we feel that HUM could be a good choice for those seeking unique formulations for beauty and wellness concerns.


  • All products are gluten-free, non-GMO, and most are vegan-friendly
  • Some products have undergone clinical trials and had positive outcomes
  • Registered dieticians are available to answer questions
  • cGMP manufactured and third-party tested for quality and safety
  • Nice discounts are available with subscription plans (and discounts are stackable)


  • Dosages of some ingredients are low compared to those in scientific studies
  • Some ingredients lack research data proving their effectiveness
  • You can’t make single purchases on the website, only subscriptions
  • Subscription cancellations require an email or phone call

Purchase options

For many HUM products, the cost of buying from its Amazon store is about the same or a few dollars less than buying direct. But there are also a handful of instances where Amazon’s prices are higher. One example is Air Patrol, which is $12 on HUM but $18 on Amazon at the time of this writing. And not all of HUM’s items are on the Amazon store, such as Best of Berberine. Additionally, you can save 20% if you subscribe to HUM’s VIP plan, whereas Amazon’s subscriptions are only 10-15% off. However, Amazon’s free shipping kicks in at $35 versus HUM at $50.

Why you should trust us

Over the past two decades, Innerbody Research has helped tens of millions of readers make more informed decisions to live healthier lifestyles.

Our team has spent over 200 hours researching HUM Nutrition, its ingredients, and its close competitors. We also scrutinized the customer experience by ordering the products ourselves to conduct hands-on testing and see how HUM stacks up against other supplement brands.

We evaluate the products and services we review (including HUM Nutrition) based on current quality standards and research, continually assessing our information to make sure it’s always up-to-date. As the science surrounding HUM Nutrition’s supplements evolves, so will the information on this page.

Additionally, this review of HUM Nutrition, like all health-related content on this website, was thoroughly vetted by one or more members of our Medical Review Board for accuracy.

How we evaluated HUM Nutrition

In order to best appraise HUM Nutrition and its products, we focused on a handful of criteria that we felt would be important to most consumers.

  • Efficacy: Based on current research, are the ingredients and dosages used likely to deliver on HUM’s promises?
  • Safety: What quality assurance practices are used? Are the ingredients safe?
  • Cost: How do the sticker price, discounts, subscription deals, and shipping compare to the competition?
  • Supplement variety: What does HUM have to offer compared to other subscription supplement companies?
  • Customer service: Is the customer service experience positive? What is the return policy like?


Rating: 7.6 / 10

On its website, HUM declares that its products are “clean and clinically tested.” But while a lot of HUM Nutrition’s products hit the mark with straightforward ingredients in therapeutic dosages that have been studied in scientific research studies, others are not as solid. In fact, we found that several products are under-dosed (such as the fiber content in Raw Beauty). Others include herbal ingredients that lack a strong body of evidence in clinical trials.

The reasoning behind the ingredients of every product is listed on HUM’s product pages, which we appreciate. However, almost every product page displays a statistic about its efficacy that comes from a HUM consumer survey. These results can be really misleading — a company-sponsored customer survey is not the same as a clinical trial.

On the topic of clinical trials, it appears that four out of HUM’s 40+ products have undergone an actual human clinical research study, but not all have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals at the time of this review. While a company conducting clinical research studies on its products is nice to see, HUM’s four trials pale in comparison to competitor Nurish by Nature Made’s 143 clinical trials on its ingredients. (To be fair, though, HUM has only been around for a little over a decade, while Nature Made is a brand with 50+ years behind it.)

Overall, most of HUM’s formulations are thoughtfully put together, but we advise you to use caution when considering products that contain mostly herbal ingredients and make big promises.

Rating: 9 / 10

The FDA does not approve dietary supplements like it does prescription drugs. It does, however, have rules in place for product manufacturing, labeling, and safety. HUM manufactures its products under Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) requirements. The company also uses third-party testing for purity, strength, composition, and contaminant levels for all of its products. HUM uses only non-GMO ingredients and is also Clean Label Project certified.

HUM states that all of its products are free of the “Tricky 12,” a concept the company created. In short, HUM avoids the following in its supplements:

  1. Titanium dioxide
  2. Artificial colors
  3. Artificial preservatives
  4. Artificial sweeteners
  5. Artificial flavors
  6. High fructose corn syrup
  7. Hydrogenated oils
  8. Talc
  9. Magnesium silicate
  10. EDTA and its derivatives
  11. Shellac
  12. Pharmaceutical glaze

Competitor Ritual shares a similar ingredient philosophy by not including what the company feels that most people don’t need. For example, the company doesn’t add vitamin C in a majority of its multivitamins, since most people get enough from their diets, and too much can make you feel sick.


Rating: 7.2 / 10

HUM Nutrition’s products are more expensive than similar supplement options on the market, though they’re not the most costly we’ve seen. For example, HUM’s Here Comes the Sun 2,000IU vitamin D3 supplement will cost you $15 a month, while Nurish by Nature Made offers a comparable vitamin D3 product that costs just $5 for 30 softgels (a month’s supply). However, it’s worth noting that most of HUM’s formulas have unique ingredient combinations that make it difficult to directly compare with other brands, so it’s a good idea to take a close look at the supplement facts and decide if the ingredients included are worth the price tag.

Plus, there are ways to save money here. Purchasing at least three items on the HUM website will take 10% off of your purchase, and having an order totaling $50 or more unlocks free shipping. Additionally, you can save $10 if your purchase is $30 or more, using code HUM10.

If you choose to purchase HUM products from the company’s website, you’ll have to subscribe. There are two options, each with different perks:

  • Monthly: With this option, you won’t save any additional money, but you can cancel at any time without penalty.
  • VIP: This option takes 20% off each of your recurring orders, but you need to accept and pay for at least three orders before you can cancel. If you try to cancel before the three orders, you’ll be charged back whatever you saved.

If you want to just purchase a single bottle, you can now find HUM at various retailers like Target, Walmart, and Amazon, but you won’t get HUM’s subscriber perks or the 10% discount for purchasing at least three bottles.

Supplement variety

Rating: 8.4 / 10

HUM offers an extensive catalog of 40+ different products geared toward the skin, sleep, energy, mood, women’s health, gut health, bloating, immunity, hair, and nails. The company doesn’t offer the typical multivitamin products for overall health but rather supplements designed to target specific concerns.

HUM’s formulas generally combine vitamins and minerals along with herbal ingredients. If you’re looking for a more general health supplement or something with a simple one-ingredient focus, you won’t be able to find it here — you’ll likely have better luck with competitors like Care/of, Ritual, or Nurish by Nature Made.

Customer service

Rating: 9 / 10

Several registered dieticians work for HUM and are available to speak with you about the products as well as your pre-existing diet and health goals. If you take the quiz on HUM’s website, the company capitalizes on this by matching you with one of its five nutritionists. Whether or not you end up purchasing the products, you still have the opportunity to discuss your needs with a professional for free.

All of our customer service experiences with HUM have been positive and pleasant. You can contact HUM via phone, live chat (available 24/7, but will start you with a chatbot), or through a contact form on the company website. Notably, while it’s easy to get in touch with HUM, we wish the subscription cancellation process was simpler and did not require emailing or calling the company.

HUM only accepts returns of unopened products for 30 days after purchase. If you have already opened and tried a product, the company is willing to apply store credit to your account instead of a refund. This return policy is pretty typical for supplement companies and falls in line with competitors like Ritual and Care/of.

What is HUM Nutrition?

HUM Nutrition reviews

Founded in 2012, HUM Nutrition is a supplement brand that follows the “beauty from within” mentality, designing nutritional supplements focused on specific issues related to skin, hair, body, mood, and women’s health. The company emphasizes a connection between micronutrients and the effects of lifestyle and diet on your appearance and overall well-being.

Currently, HUM catalogs its products into the following categories:

  • Skin
  • Mood
  • Women’s health
  • Body
  • Hair+Nails

HUM features registered dieticians (RDNs) on staff to answer any questions you might have and provide advice on products, diet, and wellness goals. And every customer is assigned to one of the company’s five nutritionists automatically.

At the time of this writing, HUM Nutrition has conducted four double-blind, randomized, and placebo-controlled studies on some of its products, and links to the studies are found on the HUM website. Most of the formulas are vegan, and they’re all gluten-free and GMO-free. HUM products are manufactured in southern California under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) and undergo third-party testing for purity, strength, composition, and contaminants.


HUM has prioritized sustainable practices as the company is transitioning to all its bottles being made from 100% ocean-bound plastic. The company states that one bottle of HUM prevents the equivalent of two to four plastic water bottles from entering our oceans. HUM products are shipped without outer cartons to minimize potential waste, with SFI- and FSC-certified shipping materials printed using 100% wind energy. In addition, its bubble wrap is biodegradable and compostable. By 2025, HUM aims to eliminate single-use plastic completely.

Landscape of reputation and customer reviews

HUM Nutrition has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. There are only 15 customer reviews on BBB, giving an overall rating of 1 out of 5 stars. However, most of the reviews mention confusion with the subscription service and efforts to cancel, not with the products themselves. There have been 33 complaints closed in the last three years. We found a similar outlook on Trustpilot, with an overall 1.4 out of 5-star rating from only 40 reviews.

In contrast, product reviews on Amazon and HUM’s website are overwhelmingly positive (most average 4+ stars), with thousands of reviews on the most popular products. Positive reviews most often mention product quality and effectiveness, while a common thread in negative reviews is the expense of the supplements.

Who is HUM Nutrition for?

Hum Nutrition Reviews Fan Club Bottle

While some of HUM’s supplements are geared toward women, a large portion of the company’s catalog can be used by men or women. HUM products may be ideal for those looking for advice from a professional (in this case, a registered dietician) when it comes to what supplements would help them meet their health goals. HUM could also be a good choice for those who want to target a specific concern and are willing to try a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbal ingredients.

However, if you’re on a tight budget or looking for a simple supplement with just one specific ingredient, HUM is not the best option. Other subscription services like Care/of can provide more basic products in monthly deliveries. And if a subscription isn’t necessary for you, there are plenty of other dietary supplement options available by reputable brands (like Nature Made) at any major retailer that will cost you less.

How does HUM Nutrition work?

HUM Nutrition is a subscription service that delivers supplements every month. You can sign up for either a month-to-month (meaning you’ll need to renew your subscription monthly) or a three-month VIP membership. Subscriptions are common in the supplement space. For example, competitors Care/of, Persona, and Baze are only available as subscriptions.

But, if you’re interested in trying just one bottle of a HUM supplement, many online and brick-and-mortar retail stores now carry its products, including Target, Walmart, Nordstrom, and Amazon.

HUM’s formulas aim to help you meet your beauty and wellness goals by providing supplemental nutrients that specifically target problem areas or deficiencies. This can be anything from PMS symptoms to sleeplessness. We delve further into how the ingredients in the supplements may help specific symptoms in their respective sections down below.


In order to be matched with the best possible supplements for your beauty and lifestyle goals, HUM recommends you start with its 13-question quiz. These questions ask about your:

  • Diet
  • Activity levels
  • Lifestyle (alcohol, sleep, stress, etc.)
  • Mood
  • Personal concerns
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Waist size
HUM Nutrition Quiz

Once you’ve answered all of the questions — which took our testers less than five minutes — you’ll be prompted to create an account before getting your results. Creating an account connects you to a registered dietician and their recommendations, as well as giving you a $10 first-time discount.

Insider Tip: If you know what products you want from the get-go, you may want to take HUM’s quiz anyway — it’ll register you for an account, which is the only way to keep in contact with your assigned registered dietician. You’re under no obligation to order the products you’re matched with, even if they automatically go into your cart.

HUM Nutrition skin products

Hum Nutrition Reviews Daily Cleanse Bottle

Photo by Innerbody Research

Based on the founder’s experience with persistent acne, one of HUM’s top priorities is supplement support for skin concerns. These products target a range of skin problems, such as acne, dryness, elasticity, and aging. We break down each of HUM’s skin-focused products below.

Daily Cleanse

One of HUM’s most popular products, Daily Cleanse contains 14 ingredients that can potentially help clear skin and support detoxification, including chlorella and spirulina, zinc, manganese, alpha-lipoic acid, and matcha green tea powder. This supplement claims to aid digestion and address breakouts at their source. Notably, the formula contains 15mg of zinc, and scientific studies have shown that serum zinc levels are often lower in those who suffer from acne. An older clinical trial found that 30mg of zinc supplementation daily (twice what you get with HUM) was effective at treating inflammatory acne. Researchers also note that zinc may provide a safe alternative to common acne treatments due to its apparent lack of systemic side effects.

Despite the low zinc dosage, a consumer survey performed by HUM found that 80% of customers reported clearer skin after eight weeks of taking Daily Cleanse; however, we recommend taking the results of company-led surveys such as these with a grain of salt due to the risk of bias. Daily Cleanse costs $26 for a 30-day supply.

Mighty Night

Mighty Night vegan capsules aim to promote healthy skin and sleep. The supplement includes popular skincare ingredients ceramides and ferulic acid, as well as valerian root, passion flower extract, and hops to support sleep. Valerian root has been shown to be effective in treating sleep disorders in some clinical trials, but typically at higher doses than that in Mighty Night. Research conducted on combination herbal therapies has also had mixed results.

A note of caution: the ceramides are from a wheat source, and while they are certified gluten-free, they may not be appropriate for those with a wheat allergy since gluten and wheat allergies are not one and the same. A 30-day supply of Mighty Night is $40.

Hyaluronic Glow

These gummies have a simple formula of hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E, and alma fruit (aka Indian gooseberry). Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to retain water, aiding in skin hydration, which can help smooth the appearance of fine lines. The 120mg of hyaluronic acid in this gummy product lines up with what has been shown to be effective in clinical trials. Also, vitamins C and E are both antioxidants, and they may help protect your skin against free radicals.

A month’s supply of HUM’s Hyaluronic Glow is $26. Ritual’s comparable product, HyaCera, has the same amount of hyaluronic acid but will cost you more than double per month ($54).

Collagen Pop

Collagen Pop is a tablet that you dissolve in 8oz of water to create a drink with a strawberry and lemon flavor (similar to strawberry lemonade). Each tablet contains 500mg of marine-sourced collagen and 111% Daily Value of vitamin C. While collagen supplements have been found in scientific research to benefit aging skin and joints, the dosage in Collagen Pop is lower than typically used in clinical trials (2.5g to 10g per day) to bring about therapeutic results.

If you don’t mind mixing a powder product, competitor Care/of has an unflavored collagen product for $24 a month that gives you a more ideal 10g of collagen per serving. The price tag for a 30-day supply of Collagen Pop tablets is $36.

Collagen Love

This product combines the benefits of collagen peptides with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. In combination, Collagen Love aims to improve skin elasticity and boost moisture. But while the amount of hyaluronic acid in the formula has been found to be beneficial in clinical trials, the 600mg of collagen peptides is low. Additional ingredients such as grape seed extract, which is rich in antioxidant polyphenols, lack human studies to back up what dosage should be used.

Competing brand Persona has a similar product called Hair, Skin, and Nails that is much less expensive ($10.08 for a 28-day supply); however, its hyaluronic acid and collagen dosages are even lower than Collagen Love. Collagen Love costs $40 for a one-month supply.

Turn Back Time

Turn Back Time relies on plant extracts and antioxidants to protect skin from UV damage. The product’s main ingredient, Polypodium leucotomos extract (a tropical fern), has shown therapeutic potential at the given dosage of 240mg in research studies to protect against the effects of UV radiation and pigmentation disorders. A 30-day supply of Turn Back Time costs $40.

Arctic Repair

This softgel supplement aims to rejuvenate skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin elasticity. Arctic Repair contains vitamin A (an antioxidant) and lingonberry seed oil (with omega-3, -6, and -9s). While the fatty acid content is beneficial, there are more affordable vegan fatty acid supplements on the market. For example, Care/of offers an omega-3 supplement sourced from algal oil for $18 a month. Arctic Repair is $60 for a 30-day supply.

Skin Squad Pre+Probiotic

HUM’s Skin Squad claims to nurture the gut and clear skin. This supplement is formulated for acne-prone skin and contains nine probiotic strains and prebiotic konjac root. The gut-skin axis is an evolving field of study, but we know that the organisms in our gut have an influence over systems across the body. Skin Squad includes common strains of probiotics that have been widely studied, and although most studies revolve around gastrointestinal health, probiotics have also been shown in scientific research to support healthy skin.

The product label reads that Skin Squad contains 40 billion CFU organisms at the time of manufacture, which doesn’t account for changes in numbers over the life of the product. It also lists the probiotics as a blend, so you don’t know exactly how much of each organism you are ingesting. It’s worth noting that HUM conducted a pilot study of 27 women who took Skin Squad for 60 days; 88% of participants reported a decrease in acne severity. Skin Squad costs $40 for a 30-day supply.

Raw Beauty Powder

Raw Beauty is a superfood powder supplement intended to boost your energy and metabolism while supporting healthy skin. This product comes in a mint chocolate flavor and contains a little bit of everything: superfoods, fiber, probiotics, herbal extracts, adaptogens, and digestive enzymes. The proprietary blends don’t inform you of exactly how much of each ingredient you are getting. While the ingredients may be beneficial, the low dosages make it hard to buy in that you’ll experience all the benefits Raw Beauty is promising; for example, the 871mg of fiber is much less than what is considered therapeutic.

Also, a note to those with allergies – this product contains wheat. Raw Beauty will cost you $39 for 30 servings.

Raw Beauty Powder Vanilla and Berry

The vanilla and berry version of Raw Beauty Powder has some slight changes to the formulation from the mint chocolate option. You’ll find increases in fiber content (1g total) and the antioxidant beauty blend (from 253mg to 1,069mg). Raw Beauty Powder Vanilla and Berry also has a $39 price tag for a 30-day supply.

HUM’s hair and nail line

Since many of the nutrients needed for maintaining healthy, strong hair and nails are similar to those needed for healthy skin, these hair supplements often overlap with HUM’s skincare line. However, HUM offers a few products specifically aimed at hair and nails.

Hair Strong Gummies

Formerly branded as Hair Sweet Hair, HUM’s Hair Strong vegan gummies are formulated to support hair growth, maintain follicle health, and help prevent hair loss. Each strawberry-flavored gummy contains folate, biotin, zinc, and vitamin B12, as well as PABA and the traditional Chinese herb Fo-Ti.

HUM funded a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of its Hair Strong gummies and found improvements in women’s hair growth after six months of supplementation; participants also self-reported improvements in hair strength, shine, fullness, and decreases in shedding. However, it’s notable that despite HUM’s study and the popular acceptance of supplementation of biotin and other nutrients for hair health, there is a lack of clinical evidence to definitively prove its effectiveness on hair in healthy people. Hair Strong costs $26 for a 30-day supply.

Red Carpet

Red Carpet aims to nourish hair follicles and promote healthy, radiant skin. This vegan softgel supplement contains vitamin E and black currant seed oil, which provides omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. There has been limited research to back up claims of vitamin E’s impact on hair health, but this well-known antioxidant (along with fatty acids) can help your skin stay moisturized. A month’s supply of Red Carpet is $26.

Killer Nails

Killer Nails vegan capsules are formulated to support longer, stronger nails (and hair). The supplement provides a high dosage of biotin (16,667% Daily Value) along with selenium to support nail thickness and reduce splitting and breakage. HUM recommends taking this supplement with food. Biotin has been shown in research studies to improve brittle nails at dosages even less than what you find in Killer Nails (2.5mg versus 5mg).

However, competitor Nurish by Nature Made offers a biotin-rich product with additional nutrients at almost half the cost ($7 per month) of Killer Nails. It’s also worth noting that biotin supplementation can interfere with some laboratory tests, so be sure to mention to your physician that you are taking this type of supplement. Killer Nails is $12 for a 30-day supply.

HUM Nutrition mood supplements

Hum Nutrition Reviews Big Chill Bottle

An important part of feeling good is actually feeling good — not just physically but mentally, too. HUM offers multiple products designed to help improve your overall mood and energy, as well as hormonal support for PMS and menopause, which we’ve included in our Women’s Health section following this one.

Ashwagandha Calm Gummies

Formerly branded as Calm Sweet Calm, HUM’s Ashwagandha Calm gummies contain 125mg of ashwagandha (as patented Sensoril) and 200mg of L-theanine and have a mixed berry flavor. This formulation is designed to help reduce symptoms of stress, improve your relaxation, and heighten your stress resilience by supporting healthy cortisol levels. The dosages of both ingredients used have been therapeutic in clinical trials.

HUM’s Ashwagandha Calm Gummies cost $26 for a 30-day supply. To learn more about ashwagandha supplements, check out our guide to the best options on the market.

Beauty ZZZ Gummies

These blackberry-flavored gummies are geared towards enhancing sleep quality and better digestion. The ingredient list includes 3mg of melatonin, botanical ingredients for sleep support, and 2.1g of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to provide fiber for regularity. While the FOS dosage is on the low side, the 3mg of melatonin is in the range of what is typically used in clinical studies. Beauty ZZZ Gummies are $26 for a month’s supply.

Beauty ZZZ Capsules

While they share the same name, HUM’s Beauty ZZZ capsules do not have the same formula as the gummies. Instead of a fiber component, the capsules include vitamin B6 and calcium, along with 3mg of melatonin. HUM claims the inclusion of vitamin B6 will help to normalize your sleep-wake cycle (aka circadian rhythm). While research data has mixed results, there is potential for a B6 supplement to help with sleep patterns if you are deficient in this vitamin.

Ritual’s comparable capsule product, BioSeries Melatonin, contains more melatonin (5mg versus 3mg), but is more expensive ($25) and doesn’t include vitamin B6 or calcium. A month’s supply of Beauty ZZZ capsules is $12.

Über Energy

This supplement is designed to help boost your energy throughout the day and support your adrenal glands. It contains ashwagandha to help reduce the physical effects of stress, as well as vitamins B5 and B6, eleuthero stem extract, ginger, and Asian ginseng. Clinical research studies have mixed results on the effects of Asian ginseng (also known as panax ginseng) on physical and mental fatigue, but the 200mg included is safe and well-studied.

Eleuthero, also known as Siberian ginseng, also lacks concrete research evidence for its effectiveness in mental performance. However, ashwagandha has shown promise in clinical trials for its stress-relieving effects. Über Energy is $26 for a 30-day supply.

Big Chill

HUM’s Big Chill aims to reduce stress symptoms, improve focus, and help to balance your adrenal glands. The product has just one ingredient: 500mg of Rhodiola rosea extract, a perennial flower and adaptogen. A 2022 literature review highlights the broad scope of research conducted on this extract, with promising results related to fatigue and stress at similar dosages to that included in Big Chill. This supplement will cost you $20 for a 30-day supply.

Here Comes the Sun

This softgel supplement is designed to help support your immune system and mood. Here Comes the Sun contains 2000IU of vitamin D3, which also helps with calcium absorption. Here Comes the Sun is $15 for a 30-day supply. But, if you’re looking to save some money, competitor Nurish by Nature offers a comparable 2000IU vitamin D supplement for only $5 a month.

HUM’s women’s health supplements

HUM Nutrition Private Party

Photo by Innerbody Research

Whether you’re battling PMS symptoms, currently pregnant, or trying to make it through menopause, dietary supplements can potentially provide relief for the various symptoms experienced throughout a woman or AFAB individual’s life. HUM offers a line of products intended for all life stages and health needs.

Private Party

Private Party is specially designed to support vaginal and urinary tract health via a ten billion CFU probiotic blend of Lactobacillus species and cranberry extract. The probiotic species used have been widely studied in regards to vaginal health and their promotion of a healthy microbiome. But while cranberry extract has become a popular remedy for urinary tract infections, research remains mixed with respect to its efficacy.

A month’s supply of Private Party is $26. Alternatively, Uqora – a brand dedicated to helping preventing UTIs – offers products at similar prices, but with more scientifically-sound inclusions for this purpose, like D-mannose.

Hormone Balance

Formerly known as Moody Bird, Hormone Balance is intended for relief from PMS symptoms, including mood swings. This herbal formula includes chasteberry fruit extract and dong quai. While evidence of PMS support via dong quai supplementation is lacking, chasteberry has been the focus of many research studies, with promising results in treating symptoms related to premenstrual syndrome. Hormone Balance costs $26 for a 30-day supply.

SOS PMS Gummies

These heart-shaped, cranberry-flavored gummies combine vitamin B6 with cranberry and chasteberry extract to support PMS symptoms and urinary tract health. This dosage of chasteberry is much less than that in Hormone Balance (50mg versus 600mg) but has also been used in research studies with therapeutic benefits. SOS PMS gummies are $26 for a month’s supply.

Fan Club

Fan Club is HUM’s contribution to the menopause supplement landscape. These vegan capsules contain grape seed extract, Siberian rhubarb, and five billion CFU of probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum DR7. The addition of Siberian rhubarb and a probiotic in a menopause supplement to support physical symptoms as well as mood is unique, and research supports their inclusion in Fan Club.

HUM funded a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study to investigate Fan Club’s impacts on perimenopausal women at an independent, third-party research lab. Menopause symptoms were decreased in 90% of participants, and 87% had fewer hot flashes. It’s also easy to swallow — of the HUM supplements our testers tried, this product was the smallest capsule in length and width, measuring just 0.75 inches long. Fan Club costs $40 for a 30-day supply.

Womb Service

Womb Service is a prenatal multivitamin that comes in two bottles: Step 1 (capsule) and Step 2 (softgel). Supplement instructions advise taking one of each daily; the Step 1 capsule contains all the usual vitamins and minerals you’d normally find in a prenatal, while Step 2 delivers 600mg of vegan algal oil as a source of omega-3 fatty acids (DHA) to support fetal brain health.

The Step 1 multivitamin includes thoughtful nutrients (like folate from L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate calcium, which can be better utilized than folic acid) and choline (which is often left off of prenatal formulations). The formula notably omits calcium, similar to competitor Ritual. A month’s supply of HUM’s Step 1 and 2 combo is $45. However, if you’re looking for a less expensive option, Nurish has a prenatal that also includes omega-3 fatty acids but is only $15 a month and is taken as 1 softgel daily.

HUM’s immune, GI, and full-body offerings

There is a considerable amount of overlap in how HUM classifies its products, so a majority of the “Body” products have already been covered. However, the company used to classify immunity products separately, but they have since been lumped back into “Body.” We’ve broken down the rest of HUM’s catalog of supplements below.

Flatter Me

HUM’s most popular product, Flatter Me, aims to support healthy digestion and reduce bloating. This supplement contains 18 digestive enzymes along with an herbal blend (ginger root powder, fennel seed powder, and peppermint leaf powder). HUM funded a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study performed at an independent lab to test Flatter Me’s efficacy in 20 women with bloating issues. The majority (80%) of participants who took Flatter Me experienced less bloating. Other benefits included less stomach discomfort and gas and better digestion.

While most people are not deficient in digestive enzymes that help to break down food, the herbal components of Flatter Me — ginger, fennel, and peppermint — have some evidence for providing relief to digestive discomforts. Flatter Me is $26 for a one-month supply.

Flatter Me Extra Strength

Flatter Me Extra Strength has the same ingredients as the original product, with a higher digestive enzyme content (374mg versus 249mg). This supplement is $33 for a one-month supply.

Gut Instinct

This probiotic aims to help to balance your gut microbiome and improve digestion. It contains a 25 billion CFU blend of ten different organisms, including Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, and Streptococcus strains, to promote healthy gut diversity. Scientific research backs up the inclusion of these ingredients to support the growth of “good bacteria.” The bacteria chosen are also some of the most well-studied and have been shown to aid in digestive health. Gut Instinct is $26 for a 30-day supply.

Celery Juice Fiber Gummies

These green apple-flavored, heart-shaped gummies provide a “green” supplement without having to prepare a juice or mix a powder. Celery Juice Fiber gummies contain just that — celery juice, fiber (in the form of fructooligosaccharides), and chlorophyll. You also get in significant portions of your daily value of vitamins A, C, K1, B6, and folate.

The inclusion of chlorophyll in a supplement doesn’t have much research to back it up, so this product may not be much more than a fiber supplement offering some extra vitamin content. Celery Juice Fiber gummies cost $20 for a month’s supply.

Best of Berberine

Best of Berberine has just two ingredients: 1200mg of Berberine HCl and 5mg of Bioperine (a patented black pepper extract that may help improve bioavailability). This product aims to support glucose levels and weight management. Scientific research has demonstrated that berberine may positively affect blood glucose levels at the dosage provided in Best of Berberine. A 30-day supply of this supplement is $35.

You can learn more about berberine in our guide to the best berberine supplements.

Pro ACV Gummies

These apple-flavored gummies aim to support gut health and metabolism. They contain organic apple cider vinegar (with The Mother, the beneficial result of fermentation), two billion CFU of probiotic Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2, and vitamin B12. The B. coagulans Unique IS-2 has been effective in clinical trials to relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and constipation.

Some research has shown apple cider vinegar to be effective for glucose and fat metabolism, but there is a lack of long-term clinical trial data. ] Pro ACV gummies are $26 for a month’s supply.

OMG Omega the Great

OMG Omega the Great is a vitamin E and omega-3 supplement geared towards supporting skin, brain, and heart health. The fish oil used in OMG Omega the Great comes from anchovies, so it’s not a vegan-friendly product, although the 1,400mg dosage of omega-3 satisfies suggested intake levels. HUM claims these softgels do not contain a fishy aftertaste like most fish oil supplements, and customer reviews on HUM’s website seem to agree, but everyone’s taste is different, so your results may vary. OMG Omega is $33 for a 30-day supply.

Counter Cravings

This supplement aims to reduce food cravings and support healthy weight management. Counter Cravings contains a large dose of chromium (as branded Chromax) as well as Coleus forskohlii extract, L-theanine, and brown seaweed extract. Research studies have had mixed results in confirming chromium’s use as a weight management tool. The same holds true for Coleus forskohlii, but the fucoxanthin found in brown seaweed has shown promise in animal studies. Counter Cravings is $50 for a month’s supply.

Ripped Rooster

Ripped Rooster claims to be a thermogenic, fat-burning supplement. It contains chromium, 7-Keto DHEA, and green tea leaf extract. A 2023 systematic review highlights that despite 7-Keto DHEA’s promotion as a weight loss supplement, there is limited scientific data regarding its effectiveness. Green tea extract has had some promising data in clinical trials for weight reduction, although at much greater dosages than that in this product. A 30-day supply of Ripped Rooster will cost you $50.

Base Control

Base Control is a women’s once-a-day multivitamin tablet meant to fill nutritional gaps in your diet. It includes iron at the full daily recommendation for pre-menopausal adult women (18mg). Notably, competitor Nurish has a comparable multivitamin at a less expensive price point, costing $6 month, while Base Control is $15 for a 30-day supply.

Base Control Iron-free

Base Control Iron-free offers the same exact formula as Base Control, just without the iron content. It is designed for post-menopausal women who do not require as much iron in their daily diet. (But it could also be a good option for those with an iron sensitivity.) Base Control Iron-free is also $15 for a 30-day supply.

Wing Man

This supplement aims to provide support for your liver. Formulated with strictly herbal ingredients, Wing Man contains milk thistle seed extract (silymarin), dandelion root powder, and artichoke leaf extract. A medicinal plant, silymarin has long been used across the world to treat liver conditions. While there’s a lack of large-scale human clinical trials to attest to its effectiveness, there are a number of smaller studies that back up its potential efficacy in dosages similar to that in Wing Man. We recommend speaking with your physician before taking any new supplements, especially if you have liver disease. Wing Man costs $26 for a 30-day supply.

Air Patrol

Air Patrol claims to support your immune system, skin, and lungs through esterified vitamin C, meaning it is non-acidic. A citrus bioflavonoid complex also serves as an antioxidant component to assist in fighting free radicals. Care/of has a similar vitamin C product that is less expensive but with much lower dosages in its formulation. Air Patrol is $12 for a 30-day supply.

Skinny Bird

This supplement is designed to help curb appetite and reduce stress eating. Skinny Bird contains chromium, Caralluma fimbriata, 5-HTP, and green tea extract. For the notable ingredient Caralluma fimbriata, clinical trials have demonstrated it may be potentially effective for appetite suppression. However, Skinny Bird only contains 333mg of the ingredient, which is a fair bit less than those used in research studies (500mg to 1g). A 30-day supply of Skinny Bird will cost you $40.

Immune Boost Gummies

These elderberry-flavored gummies are designed to provide support to your immune system. Immune Boost Gummies include vitamin C, zinc, and elderberry extract. While vitamin C and zinc are known to support immunity, elderberry data is less concrete.

Immune Boost is $26 for a month’s supply. As an alternative, competitor Care/of offers a 1-month supply of its The Defender immunity capsules for $14 per month. This supplement contains vitamin C, zinc, copper, and Andrographis (a plant that has shown immunomodulatory effects in studies).

B12 Turbo

B12 Turbo is a simple supplement aimed to assist with energy levels, particularly for those who follow a vegan diet and may be more susceptible to a deficiency. This product contains 1,000mcg of vitamin B12 and 30mg of calcium. A month’s supply of B12 Turbo is $12; HUM competitors Care/of, Nurish, and Persona all offer comparable products that are less expensive.

Core Strength

This low-FODMAP vegan protein powder has a vanilla flavor and a complete amino acid profile. Core Strength also contains a digestive enzyme blend and probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus (although the label does not list the CFU) to support healthy digestion. This supplement provides 20g of plant protein per serving. Core Strength is $30 for 15 servings.

Got Calcium

Got Calcium is just that: 630mg of calcium citrate, along with 10mcg of vitamin D3 (to aid in calcium absorption). This supplement provides over half of the calcium that most people need in one day. Notably, Nurish by Nature Made also offers a calcium supplement with almost identical calcium and vitamin D3 content but at just $5 a month; Got Calcium is $15 for a 30-day supply.

HUM Nutrition subscription plans and ordering

Hum Nutrition Reviews Dashboard

Photo by Innerbody Research

HUM Nutrition’s supplements are priced on the higher side of average. You can purchase individual HUM products at other retailers like Target, Amazon, Walmart, and Nordstrom, but the biggest opportunities for discounts come from bundling on the company website through the subscription service.

Individual bottles range in price from $12 to $60, though a majority of HUM’s products are closer to the $25 price point. Some bottles are expensive, but it’s easy to stack discounts to save.

Since HUM is a subscription service, you have the option to choose between a month-to-month or a VIP three-month subscription.

Month-to-Month PlanVIP Three-Month Plan
CancellationAnytime without penaltyAfter 3 months; canceling before means you’ll be charged the amount saved up to that point
Additional discountsNo20% off

For either plan, ordering three or more bottles at a time will unlock 10% off your entire order. If you pick the three-month option, you’ll be eligible for an additional 20% off each installment, for a total of up to 30% off if you order three months of three supplements. Taking the HUM quiz before your first order will also earn you another $10 off with a special discount code.

As a HUM Nutrition customer, you’ll be assigned a dietitian (RDN), whom you can message with questions or concerns (from the “Ask Your Nutritionist” tab in your HUM dashboard) and expect a response within 1-2 business days. Our testers tried this out and received personalized, informative responses to their questions within that time frame.

HUM subscription customers also get a “freebie” with each month’s delivery. Currently, the list of freebies includes samples of:

  • Hyaluronic Glow gummies
  • Celery Juice Fiber gummies
  • SOS PMS gummies
  • Pro ACV gummies
  • Mighty Night capsules
  • Collagen Pop tablets
  • Gut Instinct capsules
  • Womb Service prenatal vitamins

Insider Tip: During checkout, HUM automatically tries to sign you up for a VIP membership. Be aware that the only opportunity to change this option is during the “Payment” section of checkout.

HUM accepts returns of unopened products within 30 days of delivery; this is similar to the policy length from competing companies, including Care/of. HUM will apply store credit to your account if you choose to return a product that has already been opened, but the company does not reimburse any shipping fees.

HUM Nutrition takes all major credit cards as payment for your order, but no alternative payment methods like PayPal.

Canceling a subscription

Unfortunately, canceling a HUM subscription isn’t super quick. You can’t simply click on a “cancel” button and be done (like you can do with Care/of). HUM requires you to reach out to the company via email or phone and request cancellation at least 24 hours prior to your next shipment (this applies to both Monthly and VIP memberships). However, once you do this, you won’t get hassled with a lot of questions — you just make the request, and it happens.


Hum Nutrition Reviews Box

Shipping is free for all HUM orders over $50. Otherwise, the company charges a $5.95 flat rate for orders in the United States and $12.95 for international orders. Three-month subscriptions auto-ship once a month, so if your subscription is less than $50, you’ll pay shipping each month separately.

In our testing experience, we received a company email after purchasing, when the package shipped, the day before it arrived, and after delivery. It took only three days from order to arrival. The product box was hot pink with obvious HUM branding. In addition to the order packing slip, we also received some information cards on the items we ordered.

It’s worth noting that you can change your subscription products whenever you want; you aren’t locked into keeping the same items each month. Just be sure to make any changes in your dashboard prior to your next shipment date.

HUM’s customer service

In our testing experience, we found HUM’s customer service to be excellent, with prompt replies. You can contact customer support in multiple ways. HUM lists its member support phone number on the website, which is open every day from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM Pacific Time. The company also offers a live in-browser chat and an email-based contact form.

The live chat will first filter your questions through a chatbot but will connect you with a real person if it can’t find an answer. This process went quickly in our experience, and the representative we chatted with was friendly and knowledgeable.

How HUM protects your privacy

To prevent fraud, all of your payment information is encrypted while you’re using HUM’s website. HUM Nutrition’s privacy policy is straightforward. The website collects and stores personal and non-personal information about you through cookies and other technology, including your IP address. You can opt out of further processing of your personal information on the Privacy Policy page of the HUM Nutrition website.

HUM does state that even if you opt-out, the site may still collect and use non-personal information regarding your activities on the site.

Alternatives to HUM

HUM is certainly not the only subscription supplement company out there. Quite a few brands offer a variety of personalized products to meet your health needs, and some even offer individual daily packs of your supplements to remove the need for multiple bottles and streamline the process. We’ve taken a look at some of HUM’s closest competitors below.


Much like HUM Nutrition, Care/of’s supplement subscription service begins with a personalized supplement quiz. After learning about your body’s needs, the company recommends up to five different supplements to improve your health. Unlike HUM, however, Care/of has a broader focus on holistic wellness and has relatively few specialty beauty supplements.

For the most part, the company offers letter vitamins, herbs, probiotics, fish oil, and protein powders like you might be able to find in a traditional supplement store but has recently added multivitamins for men and women to its lineup. Because Care/of’s products are simpler than HUM, its prices are lower (one 30-day bottle of keratin, for example, costs $18, which is on the high end of its prices). To further compare, HUM’s Got Calcium supplement runs $15 for a month’s supply, while Care/of has a similar product for just $10 a month.


Ritual focuses on providing supplement products designed with your sex and life stage in mind. While you can’t add specific ingredients to a bundle as you can with other companies, Ritual has thoughtful formulations that consider the changing needs of teens, adult men and women, and those who are expecting. The company also goes a step above and beyond in its ingredient transparency by making every step of its supply chain (ingredients, sources, studies, and suppliers) readily available on its website.

Ritual’s products are mostly clear in delayed-release gel caps, and the company has expanded its lineup to include supplements for gut health, skin, and sleep support. Similar to HUM, Ritual’s products are offered as a subscription service on its website but are also available at retailers like Target.


If the idea of picking your own vitamins — and the possibility of getting it wrong, wasting money, and not feeling better — is overwhelming, Baze is another option on the marketplace. Recently acquired by the well known supplement brand Nature’s Way, Baze is a supplement service that starts with not a written quiz but a blood test.

For $199, the company tests your blood for 11 essential nutrients. If any of your results come back sub-par, you’ll receive daily packs of supplements dosed appropriately based on your blood test results. And if your levels are already all optimal, you’ll get your money back.


Persona is one of the original supplement subscription services. The company’s assessment quiz is incredibly in-depth, asking about everything from your current concerns (with rich detail in each section) to your history of allergies and any genetic testing results. Persona compiles all of this information and then utilizes an algorithm to build a supplement plan for you, which also considers how supplement ingredients interact with your medications (something very few assessments measure). In addition, Persona scales doses based on your demographic information.

However, all of this intense personalization comes at a cost: Persona packs can easily cost hundreds of dollars per month.

Nurish by Nature Made

Nurish by Nature Made launched in 2020 and is a personalized supplement subscription program that includes Nature Made products. Like HUM and Care/of, customers can first take a quiz on the company website to determine their health needs, followed by recommendations for personalized packs to be delivered monthly. Nature Made’s supplement catalog is vast and relatively inexpensive, and Nurish appears to follow suit, with some of the best prices among the competition.

We like that Nurish offers the opportunity to purchase a one-month supply of packs without committing to a subscription. If you’re looking for simple formulas from a reputable brand, Nurish’s program is a great option.
