HUM Nutrition is a nutritional supplements company based in California that is all about looking good through inner fitness. The company motto is “beauty starts from within”. HUM Nutrition supplements are on sale from the HUM Nutrition website and via Amazon.
HUM Flatter Me is a digestive enzyme supplement. It is supposed to improve digestive issues such as bloating, but there is no real evidence that it will work as described and scientists have criticised OTC digestive enzyme supplements, saying they just don’t work. HUM Flatter Me contains 60 capsules a bottle so is sufficient for one month’s supply. This supplement is less expensive if you buy directly from the HUM Nutrition website, and the company also offers discount codes and special offers.
A few customers have mentioned side effects including bloating and nausea.
Other side effects of digestive enzymes may include diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, headaches, and skin rash.
HUM Flatter Me is quite expensive, especially if you buy via Amazon where it costs around $45.00 per bottle of 60 capsules (30 days supply).
Buy from the HUM Nutrition and it is a bit cheaper at $25.00 for 60 capsules. Shipping is a further $5.95 to US addresses on orders less than $50.00. HUM Nutrition do ship internationally for a flat rate fee of $10.95.
If you complete an online questionnaire on the HUM Nutrition website, you can obtain a $10.00 off promotional code.
HUM Flatter Me is a supplement that claims to improve gut health and prevent issues such as bloating, indigestion, and feelings of fullness. The supplement contains a proprietary digestive enzyme blend to help break down proteins, fats, carbs, milk, sugar, and fibre – all the major food groups. There is also a herbal blend of ingredients often taken for digestive issues, which contains peppermint, ginger, and fennel seeds. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
Enzymes are molecules in the cells that speed up chemical reactions in the body, and they are essential for all bodily functions including breathing, the muscles, the nerves, and everything else. They act as a catalyst for these chemical reactions and without them, the body could not function.
Digestive enzymes are the group of enzymes that help the body break down food into smaller components so that they can be absorbed by the body. There are thousands of enzymes in the human body each with a specific role in helping your body process food. You also obtain digestive enzymes by diet.
However, the belief is that many people lack sufficient digestive enzymes and that digestive enzymes reduce with age. This can lead to common issues such as bloating, feelings of fullness, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and lactose intolerance, to name a few.
The idea of taking HUM Flatter Me is that this supplement will redress your digestive enzyme balance so that you not only look thinner, but feel healthier too.

The product information explains how digestive enzymes can deplete as we age and if we are under stress,
“Our bodies naturally make enzymes to improve digestion and to breakdown foods. However, as we age and if we are under large amounts of stress, our enzyme levels can decrease leading to digestive imbalances.”
“Research shows that broad spectrum enzymes can help breakdown lactose, proteins, carbohydrates, fibers and fats to help improve digestion.”
The supplement is suitable for vegetarians and may help reduce your stomach size.
“Flatter Me was designed as a vegetarian-friendly way to optimize digestion of protein, carbs, fiber and fats, which may promote a slimmer stomach…”
It may help remedy digestive issues as well.
“Studies have linked digestive enzyme blends with easing indigestion and addressing related issues including bloating and fullness”
In addition, the herbal extracts Fennel, Peppermint, and Ginger are “Comforting herbs soothe and offer support optimal gut health.”
“All products are non-GMO, paraben-free, grown without pesticides, GMP certified, and gluten-free.”
There are no guarantees that HUM Flatter Me will work as described. Although digestive enzymes are important to health and digestion, the supplement market is unregulated and there are no guarantees that an OTC supplement will remove the bloating and digestive distress as claimed. Digestive enzymes are sometimes prescribed for health issues, but taking a general purpose digestive enzyme supplement may not provide any real benefits.
Although supplement marketers claim that most people are deficient in digestive enzymes, according to medical advice, this may not be strictly true and, “apart from lactase, overt digestive enzyme deficiencies are rare, and they generally occur in malnourished, ill individuals—not in gassy but otherwise well people.”
New York Gastroenterologist, Eric Goldstein in an interview with USA News dismissed OTC Digestive enzyme supplements as no better than a placebo, saying “You’ll digest them well before they’ll be able to help you digest anything.”
His advice is to seek medical advice if you have you have gastric issues and if these have been ruled out, try chewing food more thoroughly and avoid foods that bother you. Source

Serving size is equal to one capsule. The measurements provided in the various enzyme blends refer to the potency or activity of the enzyme, and cannot be converted to weight (mg). These abbreviations refer to the standard Food Chemical Codex which measures the activity levels of each component. It is good that the label provides accurate information. It is not so good that nobody apart from specialist scientists can understand it!
Proprietary Enzyme Blend (249mg):
Digestive Enzymes can cause side effects in some users including:
There is some customer feedback posted on Amazon. However, according to scam software, there is a high level of deception going on so this does cast doubts over the many glowing customer reviews. In addition, many positive customers are urging new buyers to use personal discount codes in order to receive a $10 discount – this could be marketing ploy used by the company.
Took these pills to help with my bloating and gas. I felt that these pills helped. I will be repurchasing ! Also for some weird reason these pills are cheaper on the HUM website. I suggest you get them there! Also, here is a $10 referral code for you: 16F6D4
I love this stuff! It definitely eliminated a lot of my bloating issues and I even got $10 off by using referral code 126389.
There is negative feedback as well.
Did not work. Made me more bloated.
I feel like this caused bloating for me rather than stopping it. Really upset that I wasted my money.
Some customers have mentioned other side effects.
Garbage. Made me feel horrible. Terrible headaches and breakouts from using this and 2 others HUM products i tried.
There is no money-back guarantee with this supplement.
You can buy HUM Flatter Me via the official HUM Nutrition website or Sephora. It is also on sale via Amazon.
HUM Flatter Me is not easily available to customers outside the USA.
HUM Flatter Me promises to help you achieve a flatter stomach, but there is no real evidence that it will, and some customers have mentioned it causes bloating as a side effect. Taking a blend of digestive enzymes for general health in an OTC supplement is not going to work for most people, because this will depend upon your own body and your existing digestive enzyme profile. Getting it right for everyone is rather like trying to find a needle in a haystack! Of course, it may work for some people but then again, it may not.
If you do suffer from digestive issues, it is important to visit your doctor because it could be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. According to gastroenterologists, if you have already done this and symptoms persist, dietary changes and chewing your food more may be just effective as most supplements.
We don’t think that HUM Flatter Me is going to work, so we do not recommend this supplement to the Watchdog readers.
