Ritual Vitamins Overview – Just the Essentials
All of the multivitamins that Ritual offers are formulated to fill nutrient gaps in the diet. They specifically leave out certain vitamins like Vitamin C and Calcium and instead focus on “helper-nutrients” that aren't easily met with diet alone.
Each delayed-release capsule is filled with only the essential nutrients for your age, and smells and tastes minty fresh! (Minus the prenatal vitamin, which is lemony fresh!) The mint scent is much stronger than I expected, but it is much preferable to most multi-vitamin smells.
On top of that, they are vegan, gluten-free and major-allergen-free with no artificial colors or fillers.
Ritual Vitamin Options
Contains Iron, Methylated Folate, Omega-3 DHA, Methylated Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, Boron, Vitamin E and Magnesium.
The Omega-3 from microalgae and the methylated B12 are combined to support brain health.
Vitamin D3, Magneisum and Boron are Calcium-helper nutrients, so even though these multivitamins do not contain calcium the combination of these helper vitamins are designed to help maintain bone health. Vitamin K2 is often taken with Vitamin D to help absorption.
Chelated Iron and methylated folate are for blood-building, to promote red-blood cell formation.
Vitamin E provides antioxidant support.
The multivitamin for women in post-menopause. The main difference from the 18+ womens essentials is that it does not contain iron, so if you are not post-menopausal yet then you would want the 18+ vitamin above.
The multivitamin for girls ages 13-17. Includes Vitamin A and Zinc for healthy immune function, and does not contain Boron.
Prenatal vitamin for women while pregnant or planning for pregnancy. This one is flavored with lemon instead of mint, and contains different levels of the vitamins in the 18+ women vitamin (with the exception of Vitamin K) while adding Iodine, Biotin, and Choline to support fetal development.
This is Ritual's newest adult multivitamin, designed for women up to 6 months postpartum. This differs from the prenatal vitamin by adding Vitamin A, C, and Zinc and it also has different levels of Iron, Iodine, E and B12.
New sugar-free gummy formulated with picky eaters in mind. 12 traceable ingredients including 50 mg Omega-3 DHA and a good source of fiber per serving

You are able to change your future delivery dates very easily without help from customer service, and they also send a helpful reminder before shipping out your next order in case you're not ready for a refill.
They also have a 30-day guarantee if you decide it's not right for you.
Once you find the right multivitamin for you or your family, simply place the items in your cart and you'll be taken to checkout.

Ritual Vitamins Review Summary
I love that Ritual includes only the most commonly missing vitamins and has invested in clinical research. You know we love transparent ingredients here at Trial and Eater and vegan, clean ingredients make Ritual a win. These are now my go-to multivitamins and will be able to stay within the Ritual vitamin family as my age or life stage changes.
I started with the Women's Essential 18+ and the vitamins are very easy to take, even on an empty stomach. The minty smell is pretty strong so if you do take it with food, just be mindful that you'll get a whiff of mint along with whatever you're eating!
Prenatal formulations have biotin, so I decided to switch my subscription to the essential prenatal vitamins a couple of months in. That eliminates one more supplement I need to take, as I've started taking the biotin for hair health. Also the lemon flavor is preferable to me over the mint!
I kind of wish that one of the women multi options contained a small amount of zinc, as this is something I also supplement. But I can understand that Ritual is only providing the “essentials!”
