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.

Fun, Easy, Clean, peperminty refreshing


On my daughters recommendation, I started my Ritual a couple of months ago. I LOVE what they DON'T HAVE in them, as well as what they DO. I adore the simple, clean, capsules. Ive utilized and enjoyed the fun handy little "calendar". Kept me on target on a recently trip. I learned to take them with a full glass of water.

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

My Feelings about ritual


I was super skeptic about starting to take these vitamins because I have had a hard time with sticking with a vitamin in the past. I absolutely love ritual now. I have been able to stick with them and love the minty flavor. My favorite part is that I can take them on an empty stomach and not get sick. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

Absolute Necessity!


I am absolutely obsessed with Ritual. I am a "want to be heathy but pretty lazy" kind of girl and am realizing that will never change. I am vegan, but it's for the animals so I tend to eat a lot of vegan junk food. However, even if I w…
