According to Hum Nutrition, the “beauty starts from within”, and with a website aimed at fashionable women and a cute little hummingbird logo, this company seems on trend and popular. Hum Nutrition is based in California.
Hum Skinny Bird is a weight loss supplement in capsule form. Each bottle contains 90 capsules and you are advised to take three capsules every day, ideally 30 minutes before each meal to prevent overeating. The principle ingredient is cactus extract Caralluma Fimbriata which looks to be a promising weight loss ingredient but lacks concrete evidence. This cactus extract is in condensed form and many people have mentioned nausea, vomiting, and headaches as common side effects. HUM Nutrition are fast to give out discounts if you buy directly from the official website or from an existing customer, but do not provide a money-back guarantee.
People with mental health issues must avoid this supplement, as it could affect mood and interact with medication designed to increase serotonin levels.
There are a lot of customer complaints about this supplement. Reported side effects all are in line with adverse reactions to Caralluma Fimbriata and 5HTP and include nausea, vomiting, stomach pains, and headaches.
Some customers have also mentioned feelings of lightheadedness, as well as rapid heartbeat and increased anxiety.
If you have a mental health condition, you need to speak to your doctor before use as it could interfere with medication designed to increase serotonin levels.
Hum Skinny Bird is not very expensive. If you buy from the official website you can save 10% off the price by completing a questionnaire. You may also be able to add a further 10% off by using a discount code.
The flat price (without discounts) is $40.00 for 90 capsules (30 days supply). Shipping costs a further $5.95 to US addresses on orders less than $50.00. Hum Nutrition do ship internationally for a flat rate $10.95
You can also buy Hum Skinny Bird via Sephora or from Amazon. Buy via Amazon, and it costs between $29.95 and $63.00 depending on the seller.
Hum Skinny Bird may work for some people in that it might reduce appetite and could improve mood, but there are obviously a lot of issues with this supplement. It is unusual to find so many customers reporting the same side effects so if you do buy this supplement, there is a good chance that you will fall into this category and be unable to take it.
Although Caralluma Fimbriata is generally considered safe, Hum Skinny Bird contains a lot of this one ingredient and in our opinion, this is what is making a lot of people feel ill. It is simply too strong without being overly effective, and it is important to remember that the clinical evidence for this cactus extract is not consistent. Some studies have reported that it does not work others that it may have a mild weight loss effect and when it comes down to it, nothing is really proven.
One thing is for sure; if a supplement makes you feel unwell or sick you should not take it. In our opinion, this supplement is too unproven and too likely to cause adverse reactions, so we do not recommend Hum Skinny Bird to the Watchdog readers.
Its ingredients are scientifically proven to aid weight loss and you are covered by a full 60-day money-back guarantee from a trusted company, making Phentatrim a very popular choice in the diet world.
Phentatrim is the best thing to hit the supplement market in a long time, with thousands of customers already seeing the benefits. That’s why it's our editor's top pick.

Hum Skinny Bird is a simple looking weight loss supplement. It contains just four active ingredients and the idea is that you take it three times a day.
The ingredients are all well known. The principle component is Caralluma Fimbriata – a cactus extract that may help restrict and reduce appetite. There is an extract called Griffonia Simplicifolia – a source of an amino acid called 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5HTP) which may improve mood, and there is also green tea for general health benefits and for its possible effects upon the metabolism.
The final ingredient is chromium – a trace mineral that the body uses in tiny amounts to regulate glucose levels. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
Hum Skinny Bird looks as if it should be safe for most people, but surprisingly many customers have reported a long list of side effects mainly related to stomach upsets, nausea, and headaches. The product information does not warn against any adverse effects although they are obviously happening, so we advise you to check out the side effects tab here before you buy. There is no money-back guarantee so if you are unable to take this supplement, you will not get your money back.
Hum Skinny Bird is on sale via the official Hum Nutrition website, and also via Amazon. Rather sloppily for a so-called reputable product, the product description has not been provided on Amazon and simply reads “4 TARGETED SOLUTIONS FOR WEIGHT MANA”.
Land on the HUM Nutrition website, and you are encouraged to take a 3-minute quiz so that the company can identify the best products for you. Doing this will entitle you to a $10 discount off your first order.
In fact, Hum Nutrition are very keen on offering discounts in general. Customers leaving feedback on Amazon have been encouraging other potential customers to use the reviewer’s own personal discount code. This is a referral code that enables both parties to obtain a 10% discount on immediate and future purchases. As the information explains,
“Share the love and invite a friend, you both get $10 off. For every new friend that orders more than $29 of HUM products and uses your code you will receive a $10 credit. You can find your personal referral code by logging into your HUM account.”
Other Hum Nutrition supplements include HUM Daily Cleanse and HUM Flatter Me.
According to the advertising, there are five key features to this supplement.
You might be wondering what a vegan SMAC formula actually is? We had to look it up because in general SMAC is a marketing term that means “social, mobile, analytics, and cloud”.
In fact, HUM Nutrition has made up this an acronym and it stands for, “STRESS eating boost METABOLISM curb APPETITE CONTROL blood sugar levels”. In our opinion, this does not work as a snappy advertising slogan!
The product information names the ingredients and itemises each benefit.
It might work for some people. Caralluma Fimbriata is the principle ingredient, and some research suggests it works as described and helps reduce hunger pangs and appetite. That said, not all research is unanimous and the general scientific opinion is that these ingredients require further testing.
One of the problems with HUM Skinny Bird is that it contains Caralluma Fimbriata in a very strong and condensed form. This cactus ingredient can cause side effects, most notably stomach pains, headaches, and nausea, and many customers have mentioned these. This is unusual with Caralluma supplements where any side effects are usually mild or temporary. But it means that many people have been unable to take the supplement, so whether it works or not is a side issue!
The 5HTP content is in line with research which has shown that taking this ingredient may help improve depression, and so help remove the need for comfort eating. However, this is not safe for everyone and again side effects may be an issue.
Overall we think that HUM Skinny Bird may have a noticeable effect upon many users, but with a high risk of side effects as well, you could find that you just cannot use this supplement. That said, some people have used it and reported that it works as described.
We advise that if you do try it, start by using only one capsule a day and build up. That way, if you do experience stomach pains and nausea, hopefully these adverse effects will not be too severe.
Serving size is equal to one capsule.
For a supplement that at first glance has a pretty innocuous ingredients list, there are a lot of customer complaints about this supplement.
Reported side effects all are in line with an adverse reaction to Caralluma Fimbriata and 5HTP, and include:
Some customers have also mentioned feelings of lightheadedness, as well as rapid heartbeat and increased anxiety.
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have an underlying medical or mental health condition or are taking prescription medication.
There are customer reviews on Amazon and there is a wide range of opinion.
Some customers are positive, although according to scam software, some of these look suspiciously positive. In addition, many positive customers are urging new buyers to use their personal discount codes in order for everyone to receive a $10 discount.

Side effects are a common issue, some customers are not as impressed,
These made me so sick I had to stop taking them!!!
Absolutely awful product. I don’t typically write reviews, but felt I had to warn others that are interested in this product. After taking just one pill I felt so sick to my stomach and my heart was racing. I vomited twice from this pill and tossed the rest of the bottle in the trash.
…. I wanted to warn people about this product. I am an average size woman. I only weigh 130 and I’m 5’5” I wanted to take these pills to see if it would help my curb my cravings. I suffer from binge eating, so I gave these a try. I took them for a couple days and felt crappy. I didn’t really think anything of it. Today I decided to try again. I ran to the bathroom and vomited. This product is not safe and I am going to call the company
A few customers have not experienced effects either way,
It’s useless! Not doing anything and definitely not worth trying or buying
There is no money-back guarantee with this supplement.
