We Want You to Ask Questions

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

Can Essential for Women 50+ help support normal immune function?

More than 97% of women aged 50 and up are not getting enough Vitamin D from their diet. That’s why we include 50 mcg of vegan-certified Vitamin D3 in Essential for Women 50+ to help support normal immune function.*

Do I need Calcium or Iron in my multivitamin?

In the scientific community, there is debate on the ideal and safe amount of Calcium with risks being linked to over-supplementation. We suggest checking with your physician to determine your own needs. Rather than including Calcium in Essential for Women 50+, we included “helper nutrients,” like Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, Magnesium, and Boron, to support bone health and complement the Calcium you’re already getting from your diet. As for Iron, the Recommended Daily Allowance is 8 mg daily. Almost all women over 50 reach this daily value through diet alone, so you won’t find it in Essential for Women 50+.*

Does Essential for Women 50+ treat menopause symptoms?

No. Essential for Women 50+ is not intended to treat menopausal symptoms. However, it is designed to help support the nutrient requirements of women post-menopause.*

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 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?

No more trips to the store. 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 Women 50+ a great value?

For decades, many mainstream multivitamins have been formulated for low cost and long shelf life. At Ritual, we put quality and efficacy above all. We use obsessively-researched 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 $35/month, or about $1/day.

How long will it take to start seeing results?

Supporting your bone, heart, and brain health 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, Folate, B12, and Boron) get to work to help support your cells, blood, and more, while fat-soluble nutrients (like Omega-3 DHA, Vitamins D3, K2, and E) may take longer. All in all, it can take 3-4 months for your body to reach a new nutrient equilibrium.*

If I'm over 50 but not post-menopausal, can I still take Essential for Women 50+?

Essential for Women 50+ doesn’t contain Iron, so if you’re not post-menopause, Essential for Women 18+ should have your needs covered. That said, we’d suggest checking in with your physician first.*

How do I switch my current subscription over to Essential for Women 50+?

You can change the vitamins that you're subscribed to at any time! First, log into your Ritual account. Then, click the "Shop" tab in the top right corner to select Essential for Women 50+. Next, click the "Start Now" button. Finally, follow the steps to finish switching your subscription.

What is your packaging made from?

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.

Too Early to Tell

I am unsure if this product is better than my previous vitamins. I will use them for a few more months before making any changes.

My daughter introduced me to Ritual but I didn’t sign up because I am over 50. When the 50+ vitamin came out I tried it and was hooked! Love the ease and I can pause when I need to.

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

I love Ritual! When I first started taking them, I had a lot of questions, and the folks were so nice and responsive! I have to say though - I'm a little perplexed others complaining of a "fishy" taste - there is no fish oil in these! …

Easy!

I'm on my third bottle of Ritual and it is probably the easiest thing I do. I got onto a big supplement kick and was taking close to 20 different pills a day. It was exhausting! Ritual is getting be back in the habit of daily care. And as shallow as it sounds, they are so pretty! I love taking them:)
