We Want You to Ask Questions

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

What’s the difference between Essential for Teens (His) and Essential for Teens (Hers)?

Essential for Teens (Hers) contains Iron, while Essential for Teens (His) does not. That’s because teen girls have higher Iron requirements and larger intake gaps than teen boys. Essential for Teens (Hers) also contains slightly more Folate than Essential for Teens (His).*

What kind of testing do you do?

We go above and beyond, and when we say transparency, we mean it. Each batch of our multivitamins 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, helping to ensure our products are compliant within current guidelines and regulations.

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

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.

Why is Essential for Teens (His) a great value?

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, but our scale, capsule technology, and direct-to-consumer model allow us to deliver nutrients your body needs in a single bottle for $30/month, or about $1/day.

How long will it take to start seeing results?

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, and Vitamin B12) 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.

How do I choose a multivitamin for my trans or non-binary teen?

While specific nutrient recommendations can vary depending on sex, life stage, and other factors, many of us actually have nutrient gaps in common. So no matter their biological sex or how they identify, both Essential for Teens multivitamins are formulated to help fill nutrient gaps in teens’ diets.
That said, there are also some key differences between our formulas, with the purpose of addressing common nutrient gaps that are specific to different sexes. For example, you’ll find Iron in Essential for Teens (Hers) but you won’t find it in Essential for Teens (His). That’s because teen girls have higher Iron requirements and larger intake gaps than teen boys.
Still, there may be some intricacies when it comes to choosing a multivitamin that best suits your teens’ nutrient needs. If they’re not sure which of our formulas is a good match, we recommend having a conversation with their physician.*
