Epilepsy Blog Relay

This March we’ve partnered with another Female-Founded company, Ritual. I’ve been using their mail order multivitamin for about a year now and I have been really happy with it. Personally, I’ve never loved the idea of adding more to my pill case since I’m already taking so much. But now that I’m in menopause, at a higher risk for osteoporosis and dealing with side-effects from chemotherapy, I thought it was time to get some of the stuff I’m not able to get in my diet.

The March 2023 Epilepsy Blog Relay will kick off on March 1 and run through the end of the month. If you are new to epilepsy or to Living Well With Epilepsy, I run the relay each March, June and November. It’s a chance to share stories from all over the world  three times a year and raise a little extra epilepsy awareness.

What is Ritual

Katerina Schneider, CEO and Founder of Ritual is a self-proclaimed skeptic. She shares the story of being pregnant and turning the house upside down getting rid of products with ingredients she couldn’t get behind. But in her search for a prenatal vitamin she couldn’t find a brand she trusted, so she decided to build her own.

According to Schneider, “We’re about pseudoscience and half-truths. So, when we set out to develop Essential for Women, we wanted something simple, clean, and backed by science. We challenged some of the top scientists to reimagine the daily multivitamin for women. The result is everything we think a multivitamin should be.”

Why Ritual

I chose to try the Ritual Multivitamin because they offer traceable and non-GMO ingredients, gluten and major allergen free, they are third party tested, vegan, and have no artificial colorants. The vitamins are delivered to my home. They have a formulation specifically designed to support healthy aging in women. And Ritual clearly outlines the ingredients in the multivitamin and why they included the specific ingredients. Oh yeah and my tummy is real sensitive to vitamins and I haven’t had a single problem with these.

    Do these vitamins have anything to do with supporting epilepsy health – or are they run of the mill multi-vitamins? Thank you!!

      The Ritual Vitamins are not specific to epilepsy. But as someone who has been on anticonvulsants for more than 30 years, they are the only multivitamins that don’t give me acid reflux, make me fart all day or give me a headache. The company recommends taking two tablets a day. I started by taking 1 a day since my stomach is so sensitive. then after about 5 months I increased to 2 tablets a day.

      Epilepsy puts women at higher risk for osteoporosis because the meds reduce our ability to absorb calcium. It also puts us at a 6x higher risk for Alzheimer’s and Dementia. I turned 50 last year and felt it was time to start tackling some of these risks. If you are younger I would address them earlier.

      I recommended the vitamin because I use it and I’ve tried others and they didn’t work for me. I never liked supplements and I don’t mind taking this one. Just thought I would share with you guys. Hope that helps.
