Ritual vitamins are a brand of multivitamins — available for women, men, pregnancy, and teens.
I’m here to tell you all about ritual vitamins, my personal experience with them, so that you can make a better decision as to whether you’d like to try them or not.
How it works — Subscription:
What’s unique about ritual vitamins is that they are not available for single purchase. Instead, you have to commit to a subscription. With each bottle containing 30 servings (2 per day,) a new bottle ships every month. You’ll get a text or email when a new bottle is on its way.
Pros: You don’t have to think about buying vitamins or make a point to grab more at the store when you’re running low. You can be motivated to take them every day. And the best part is that canceling your subscription is easy as the click of a button, no extra hassle. Many subscription services are a pain to cancel and require making several phone calls, but with ritual, just log into your account and click “cancel.”
Cons: If you forget to take your vitamins here and there, you end up with a surplus of vitamins. With normal store-bought vitamins, you can save money this way, but with a subscription you can end up wasting money and having extra.
Overall takeaway: for these reasons above, I’d say that the pros and cons equal each other out.
The science / ingredients:
These vitamins have top-notch ingredients, all the essential nutrients you need for your body without an excess overload.
Their clinical study proved a 43% increase in Vitamin D and a 41% increase in Omega-3 DHA, within twelve weeks, both significantly greater than placebo group.
Overall takeaway: Most vitamin companies have filler ingredients, or GMOs, etc. Ritual seems to have trustworthy ingredients backed by science. However, the data could be more impressive.
When it comes to aesthetic, these are truly the best vitamins ever! I have to admit, the aesthetic of ritual vitamins is what initially drew me in and motivated me to sign up. They’re just… sooo… pretty!!!
My favorite part about ritual vitamins is that it comes with an outer coating of peppermint essential oil, making them super delicious. I usually take my drink before my vitamin to avoid unpleasant taste, but I found myself putting the vitamin in my mouth and enjoying the flavor before washing it down with water. Very refreshing.
Another thing I appreciate is that I haven’t had any nausea, which I commonly experience with vitamins, especially the “higher quality” ones. They claim you can take it on an empty stomach, although I still prefer to take it with food just in case.
For a ritual vitamin subscription, you pay $30 a month.
Most vitamins cost no more than $5, maybe $10. Garden of Life vitamins, a company with high quality ingredients, cost $50 for 120 servings — coming to a little more than $10 per month.
So, to pay $30 a month for vitamins is ridiculous in my opinion.
Their slogan is “the future of vitamins,” but at this price, vitamins have no future…
The overall takeaway
Putting it all together, my rating of Ritual Vitamins comes out to three-and-a-half stars!
I ended up cancelling my subscription because it wasn’t worth paying that much. But I am glad I tried it, and I’ll be recycling those cute bottles for future crafts.
If you can afford it, and vitamins are very important to you, I would recommend giving this a try. Otherwise, it’s just so expensive, there are many other effective vitamins on the market. Or, you know, you can always try eating healthier (but that’s just not realistic!)
