When Ajeet and I decided that we wanted to grow our family, I started doing research into the steps I should take before we embark on this journey together. One of the things I read was that women should start taking prenatal vitamins ideally about 3 months ahead of conception. I spent a couple of weeks looking into what should be in a prenatal vitamin and what the differences are between some of the ones in the market. I ended up starting Ritual Prenatal Vitamins in January of this year and I’m ready to now share my thoughts + experience since it’s been about 6 months!! ☺
Ritual Prenatal Vitamins:
- are no-nausea designed capsules
- contain a lemon-essence tab in the bottle that makes the pills smell like lemon
- have 12 essential nutrients for you and baby (including Omega-3 and Iron)
- are vegan, non-GMO, gluten and allergen- free
- uses methylated forms of Folate which was super important to me!
I take my two pills once a day at night but you can take them in the morning with or without food too! Since they smell like lemon and aren’t that large, it’s been so easy to take and I actually enjoy taking them!
If you are not thinking about a baby in the near future or are not pregnant, Ritual also has a woman’s essential multivitamin + now they have one for men! Ajeet hasn’t tried the men’s one just yet but hopefully will soon! Those vitamins are also vegan-friendly, have a no-nausea design capsule and are free of colorants + synthetic fillers.
What I love most about Ritual is that their ingredients are traceable as they share their sources, studies, and suppliers for each ingredient. That was super important to me when I was doing my research because I wanted to make sure I knew what was going inside my body each day! The other great thing is because Ritual is a subscription model, each bottle arrives at your doorstep every month for $35 + free shipping! You can edit the delivery date or cancel without any issues but it’s just one less thing you have to worry about during pregnancy.
If you want to try out their vitamins, you can use code NITA for 10% off your first three months. I hope you love them as much as I do!! Let me know if you have any questions at all, chat soon! Xx
