We Want You to Ask Questions

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

We go above and beyond, and when we say 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 for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants, ensuring they are below levels deemed safe by regulations.
No confusing vitamin aisles or forgetting refills. Ritual is conveniently delivered to you every month. 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.
At Ritual, we put quality and efficacy above all. We use science-backed nutrients and clean alternatives to traditional fillers and preservatives. And we ship our product quickly after it’s produced. Our ingredients come at a premium—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 nutrients your body needs in a single bottle for $30/month, or about $1/day.
Supporting your heart, bones, normal muscle and immune function are 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. The water-soluble nutrients (like Magnesium, Zinc, Folate, B12, and Boron) get to work to help support your cells, blood, and more, while fat-soluble nutrients (like Omega-3 DHA, Vitamins A, D3, K2, and E) may take longer. All in all, it can take 3-4 months for your body to reach a new equilibrium.*
We have gone to great lengths to select ingredients that help to support our bodies. We also select materials that are better for the planet, too. For packaging that meant finding new use for old matter. For example, mailers are made from recovered newsprint and plant fibers, and bottles made from 100% recycled content. Sharing these choices with you is at the core of our mission; It’s why we created the first visible supply-chain of its kind. This is just the beginning of a more traceable future—and we’re committed to keeping you in the loop with every step forward.

Need Citrus option!

9/22/2021

The mint is overpowering first thing in the morning. Would LOVE a citrus option, like my wife's! Everything else is fantastic.

No, I wouldn't tell a friend to take these vitamins.

Great, Convenient Multi, but can we PLEASE get a "no-mint" option?

9/10/2021

I know it's supposed to make taking the pills more palatable, but TBH, it's the last thing I want to taste when I first wake up, and makes them impossible to swallow with anything but water.

No, I wouldn't tell a friend to take these vitamins.

Convenient, but flavor isn’t for everyone

6/20/2021

My husband appreciates the ease of taking just one multivitamin daily, but he’s not a fan of the mint essence. I had him smell the citrus essence in my prenatals and he was very jealous. He’d much prefer citrus or even no flavor to the mint.

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