We Want You to Ask Questions

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

How long will it take for me to start seeing results?

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.*

Why is Essential for Women $30/month?

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 obsessively 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.

What kind of testing do you do?

When we say “total transparency,” we mean it. Each batch of our vitamins 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 use a third party lab to test each batch, twice, for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants, ensuring they are below levels deemed safe by the FDA’s current Good Manufacturing Practices.

How does my subscription work? How can I update my preferences every month?

It’s your Ritual: we’ll send you an email 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. You’re in control.

The best multi for skeptics

When it comes to supplements I'm a skeptic. However, I LOVED Essential for Women. The most attractive part about it for me is the "Good-looking Science." I have a PhD in Science and yearned for a science-based multi for a long time. The fact that the…


Keeping It Real

Still new

I am 2 months in. I haven’t seen any noticeable changes but I would expect that to take alittle longer. Regardless I like that there are simple ingredients that matter.

Does not upset my stomach


This is a great vitamin service. After beating Breast Cancer I wanted a daily vitamin with more (magnesium and omegas etc) the delivery service is easy (a tiny bit more spendy than I would prefer) but you control your delivery dates etc plus I can take them on an empty stomach with no discomfort.

Yes, I'd tell a friend to take these vitamins.

Always curious


I’m always interested in testing new things but never really give them much stock and cancel orders after the initial test. It’s very hard to keep me interested in supplements and vitamins but Ritual has done just that and I love them for it! The vitamin capsules taste delicious and they make me glow everyday.
