HUM is a beauty nutrition brand launched in 2012 in LA with a mission to become the best nutrition business in the world.
HUM was founded by Chris & Walter. Walter had seen personal struggle in his life with breakouts for years. He took many treatments, but nothing seems to work for him. Walter always felt that there was a link between nutrition and his skin, although he couldn’t find much research in this area. He met with one of London's most forward-thinking nutritionists that he was able to fix his skin once and for all. This gave him an idea to cure issues related to skin, hair mood and body with nutrition and HUM came to life.
As per their website Hum is very committed to provide a personalized and effective solution to their customers. HUM offers a free consultation with a personal nutritionist who accesses your personal profile and recommends products from a line of dietary supplements that are specifically identified to cater your health and beauty needs.
To start your journey with HUM, you have to take a quick 3 minutes quiz about yourself. In the quiz they ask about your daily habits, your diet, mood, your daily wellbeing, health and beauty concerns. This helps them create your nutrition profile.
The next step in the process is what as per HUM sets them apart from other competitors in the industry, i.e. your personalized recommendation report from HUM’s nutritionist. The information collected about yourself in the quiz is analyzed by their nutritionists and they suggest dietary supplements that are intended to meet your body’s nutrition requirement.
With the help of your personalized report created by HUM’s nutritionist, you can choose from the vitamins and minerals suggested to you to further customize your plan.

After then Chris and Walter began their journey from London to LA and founded HUM so that everyone can be benefited from a healthy and right nutrition for their body.
