Back in the day, people smoked cigarettes, drank as they pleased and didn’t overthink it when they had a cold. I laugh about this all of the time. The funniest part: I’ve noticed a change in my overall mood, energy and health levels after I began taking dietary supplements to complement my lifestyle. Such a 2017-er.
I was introduced to HUM Nutrition through Well + Good‘s newsletter (my favorite email subscription). I was curious to know if HUM’s quick quiz would help me figure out why I’m so tired all of the time and look like I’m aging a million years faster than I should be. After the quiz, I gained more interest in HUM when I learned all of the supplements are gluten free and vegetarian – some are even vegan (I don’t have dietary restrictions, I just practice a clean diet when I can)!Plus, the all-natural company promotes that beauty starts from within, and their certified nutritionists individualize plans and answer questions as needed. Super helpful.
I think my favorite part about HUM’s products – aside from how they make me feel – is how easy they are to understand. It doesn’t take much to overwhelm me when talking health, so I really appreciate how straight-forward HUM is. Each supplement has a direct purpose, and HUM even breaks it down enough to tell you what time of day and how (ex: with food/without) to take each pill. Ya really can’t get more basic than that. I’m also obsessed with their branding and packaging! Love.
Aside from the supplements HUM’s nutritionist recommended for me, their team was kind enough to send me additional supps for review. So far, here’s what I’ve tried:
Honestly, that’s a whole lot of supplements to consider taking on a daily basis. Even though HUM’s very reasonably priced with discounted subscription plans, they can add up quickly if you become too obsessed. I consider myself to be a decently healthy person, so I’ve decided on sticking with the following, maybe adding others in as I feel my body and needs changing.
Note: I really enjoy all of the supplements and see the benefits of them all. Choose the ones that are best for you and your lifestyle when making your selections.
Here Comes the Sun: I work in an office that has no windows and live in an apartment with limited sunlight. Supplementing my intake of Vitamin D is definitely internally beneficial. In fact, I’ve already noticed a difference in the dark circles under my eyes and mood.
Air Patrol: Again, oftentimes I go hours and hours without seeing the light of day. When I do get the opportunity to embrace the outdoors, I’d like to subject myself to the gross NYC air. Smog, meet Air Patrol.
Gut Instinct: I have absolutely no idea how to ensure my gut is healthy. Therefore, this is relevant to my life.
Beauty zzZz and Uber Energy are a little too intense for me. I found myself exhausted and groggy waking up after taking Beaty zzZz. On the days I’d take Uber Energy, it was almost like I had a 24-hour espresso IV. That being said, I’m keeping them both in my bathroom arsenal. Beauty zzZz for restless nights and travel, and Uber Engery for emergencies.
