We Want You to Ask Questions

Seriously. Our team of supplement experts and scientists has answers.

Essential for Men 18+ is a multivitamin for men ages 18-49, formulated to help fill nutrient gaps in their diet.*
Our products are purchased as a subscription. After your initial purchase, orders are automatically sent every 30 days to keep you on track. That said, it’s your Ritual: We’ll send you a notification each month a few days before we charge you and ship your next bottle. You’re free to rush or delay an order or cancel your subscription at any time, right from your account page.
Each batch of our multivitamins is tested for identity, purity, strength, and composition so we can be sure that what’s on the label is what’s in the capsules. We also complete third-party testing to help ensure our products are compliant with regulations and guidelines for heavy metals, microbes, and major allergens and to help assure the quality and safety of our products. Essential for Men 18+ has been independently certified for quality and purity. It is Non-GMO Project Verified.
The bottle for Essential for Men 18+ is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and is made of #1 PET plastic, which is highly recyclable curbside. The caps on our multivitamin bottles are #5 and are made of polypropylene.

Additionally, your first month is shipped in a recyclable box, and recurring orders are shipped in mailers made from 100% recycled content (the paper used to make our mailers is 100% garbage-repurposed newsprint and plant fibers). Any collateral included is also made of 100% recycled materials.
Supporting your bone, heart, and brain health are what's important for the long term. While many people feel a difference, some don’t, and that’s okay. It’s what’s happening inside that counts. Calcium-helper nutrients Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Boron help maintain bone health, while a combination of Omega-3 DHA from microalgae and methylated B12 help support brain health.*

Favorite Mint

2023-03-30

Just started taking the vitamins and I absolutely LOVE the mint flavor. It helps the pills go down and I enjoy a fresh mint flavor on the pallet. The vitamins don’t irritate my stomach and I’ve enjoyed taking them thus far. Definitely will be buying these monthly and hope the Mint flavor stays!

Yes, I'd tell a friend to take this product.

Great all-in-one vitamin

2022-06-30

I like the fact that vitamin is small so it's easier to swallow. The only downside, in my opinion, is the subtle mint flavor. I prefer no flavor at all and hopefully, the company would release non-flavor version. Otherwise, I think this is great all-in-one vitamin for men.

Yes, I'd tell a friend to take this product.
