Our food-form boron is the gentle kind your body likes and is clinically tested for absorption.

Our patent-pending, rule-bending encapsulation was designed to deliver nutrients more effectively than ever before.
You can take our pill on an empty stomach because it waits to dissolve until it reaches the less sensitive areas of your gut.

We want you to ask questions.
Our VP of Research, Dr. Luke Bucci, PhD, has answers.
The benefits you ‘feel’—happier mood, maintained energy—are just bonuses when it comes to improving your long-term health. While many people feel a difference within 1-2 weeks, some don’t notice any difference and that’s okay. It’s what’s happening inside that counts.
The water-soluble nutrients (Fe, Mg, folate, B12, boron) start working right away to support your heart, nerves, and more. Fat-soluble nutrients take longer, except for D3, which helps your brain the next day if you have low levels. All in all, it takes 3-4 months for your body to reach a new equilibrium. By the time Essential For Women reaches neurons—the cells in your brain that signal mood—it’s already helping your heart cells, bone cells, and more.
For decades, mainstream vitamins have been formulated with two primary goals: low cost and long shelf life. Made with low quality ingredients, the resulting products are not only less effective, but are often filled with harmful materials to help them “keep.”
At Ritual, we put quality and efficacy above all. We use only clinically researched nutrients, in forms identical to those found in healthy foods. We use clean alternatives to traditional fillers and preservatives. And we ship our product fresh--it never sits on a shelf.
Our ingredients aren’t cheap. Purchased separately, they would cost $200/month. The omega-3s alone would set you back $25. But our scale, our capsule technology, and our direct-to-consumer model allow us to deliver everything your body needs in a single bottle for $30/month, or $1/day.
Every batch of our vitamins is first tested for identity, purity, strength, and composition. Then, we take it a step further and have a 3rd party make sure that our active ingredients are potent and that our capsule is tested to ensure heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants are below measurable levels. When you read our label, you know exactly what's going in your body. Nothing more, nothing less.
We specifically designed Essential for Women to be easy to take—even for women who are usually sensitive to vitamins. We use a size 0 vegan capsule, which is actually much smaller than most multivitamins.
Plus, every bottle comes with an insert infused with fresh peppermint oil from Yakima, Washington, which can be helpful for people who find it hard to swallow other vitamins because of their minerally or fishy smell.
Finally, our capsule is also delayed-release, which means it doesn’t dissolve until it leaves your stomach and enters your intestines. Not only is this better for nutrient absorption, but it reduces the risk of vitamin-related nausea.
