Want to know if the internet’s favorite multivitamins are worth the money? This is the ultimate Ritual Vitamins Review……..
Let’s start this off with a truth bomb. I’m TERRIBLE at taking a daily vitamin. Partially because I take other medicine for my thyroid condition and partially because most vitamins I’ve tried have upset my stomach or just…..tasted gross and been hard to swallow. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that after testing a month of trying both Ritual’s multivitamin for women (for me) and Ritual’s multivitamin for kids (Lydia)…..we’re huge fans.

Now…..onto the detailed Ritual Vitamins Review……I wanted to break our experience into sections for each type of vitamin we tried.
Ritual Vitamins: Kids Multivitamin
When I got an email sharing how Ritual was launching a kids multivitamin, I was pretty excited! The initial information shared included that it was specifically created with picky eaters or kids who struggled to swallow pills in mind…..and I was SOLD. Unlike a lot of kids’ vitamins on the market……the Ritual Essential for Kids is sugarfree (all flavoring is from natural sources)…..which I was also excited about.
So what’s special about these vitamins (besides the fact that my child actually takes them and likes them)? They’re a gummy vitamin flavored with lemon oil and raspberry extract (so they have kind of a sour berry flavor)…..and sweetened with monk fruit. They have 12 simple ingredients (including 50 mg Omega-3 DHA and 3 grams of fiber).
They’re a solid multivitamin for kids (this one is for ages four and up…..they also have a separate vitamin for tweens and teens). They’ll support immune system health, bone health, brain and digestive health.
Lydia’s take? Full disclosure, she did say they were “sour” at first. But now she takes three a day (the recommended daily dose and they come in a bottle of 60). She’s had zero stomach issues, and says they’re super easy to chew!

Ritual Vitamins: Womens Multivitamin
Now, let’s talk about the women’s multivitamin I’ve been taking. In the past, I’ve struggled with taking multivitamins. I have to take my thyroid medication on an empty stomach and to wait an hour after to eat. So most multivitamins I took if I took them in the morning at the same time? Always upset my stomach. In fact, these are the ONLY ones I’ve tried that haven’t. For the record, I take the women’s multivitamin for ages 18-49 (they also have a prenatal vitamin, a postnatal vitamin, and a vitamin formulated for women who are post-menopause).
At my last doctor’s appointment, my doctor suggested a few changes. She wanted me to start light strength training, and to take a daily multivitamin.
So why did I try Ritual? First of all, I had to see what all the hype was about. But there were a couple things that I was excited about. These vitamins are lightly flavored with mint and have a sleek orb like shape…..both of which make them WAY easier to swallow. They also have a good dose of Vitamin D (on my doctor’s list) and Iron (also on her list).
My take? I love them. I actually just ordered three more months worth with my own discount code (ha). They’re easy to take, easy to stay consistent with, and I love that I can take them on an empty stomach. To me? Totally worth the internet hype!
