Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you know that multivitamins and supplements have gained quite the popularity. Justified popularity. Whether it comes in the form of tablets, capsules, gummies, powders, drinks, or energy bars, supplements aim to help fill gaps in the diet. However, with an overabundance of brands and options out there, picking a supplement that is best suited for you while avoiding the ones with shady additives can be a difficult task.

As you all know by now, I’m a huge fan of Ritual’s Essential for Women multivitamins. As consumers, we deserve to know what we are putting in our bodies and why. So, from the jump, Ritual’s founder and CEO, Katerina Schneider, wanted to create a trustable brand that prides itself on transparency by creating supplements made from high-quality nutrient forms, is made traceable, and avoids the B.S. And, I think she says it best: “Some call it obsessiveness; we call it traceability.” So, when taking my Essential for Women multivitamins daily, I am confident it’s helping fill nutritional gaps with only high-quality ingredients. 

This ‘transparency’ piece is something I want to continue to hone in on within this post. So, here are the following ways that Ritual continues to keep it real with us.

  • Ritual shows us their ingredients, suppliers, and key studies that go into the multivitamin. For example, Omega 3-DHA is from microalgae found in Saskatoon, Canada. Additionally, Ritual discovered that the Essential for Women multivitamin increased Omega 3-DHA levels by 41% through a university-led clinical trial.*
  • Ritual’s Essential for Women multivitamin is USP verified. To be USP verified means that the nutrients on their label are present at claimed levels, are available to be absorbed by the body, and do not contain harmful levels of unwanted impurities (e.g., heavy metals, pesticides, and microbes). Essentially, it means what you see on the label is what is actually in the capsules. This might seem obvious, but not all vitamins are USP verified.
  • Ritual is vegan-friendly, Non-GMO Project verified, gluten-free, dairy-free, and formulated without major allergens. So, no matter what kind of dietary restrictions you have, Ritual can most likely make a way into your everyday routine.

If you’re in the market for a new multivitamin, I highly recommend you consider trying Ritual! I know it can be hard to maintain routines, but I genuinely look forward to taking my two daily capsules of Ritual’s Essential for Women 18+ every morning. It feels great to be able to invest in myself through such simple means!
