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 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.

Great Vitamins!

3/31/2022

One of the reason I choose Ritual vitamins for me and my family is because it contains real folate. I don't have to take a separate pill now to get the folate I need.

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

Tip for Men's Mint haters

1/20/2022

My husband and I have had a few orders of bottles now. I have 3 citrus "wafers" saved up and he just immediately puts them in his bottles each month. A quick shake of the bottle and "boom", mens citrus vitamins that won't spoil your morning coffee taste.

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

Convenient

12/24/2021

I needed a pill that could keep my vitamin D levels up and reduce the number of vitamins I carry since I travel for work. I like everything but the mint flavor and smell.

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

I like them, minus the mint

12/6/2021

Very convenient, and seems high quality. It doesn't kill the product, but the mint isn't the move! Give us plain! It tastes like toothpaste or floss, and the smell gets on my hands. Not appealing any time of the day, really.

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

The Best.

11/8/2021

I was using Kroger brand multi-vitamins for a while, and then about a year ago Ritual became my best friends. The Kroger brand tasted like chalk. Then these little pills of awesome came into my life and there's been no looking back.

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