May 26, 2023 — Written by

What are the best supplements for the whole family? Is what you’re getting in those medicinal bottles worth the cost? Does your family even NEED a supplement to what they’re eating? All the answers to these questions (and more) are coming in HOT with new-to-us brand MaryRuth Organics. Read along as we break down the scoop on liquid vitamins.

The struggle around vitamins and supplements is real, and for all the reasons. First, we have to identify a vitamin that has good ingredients; then we pray to god we are actually getting what we think we are getting (because it’s no secret the vitamin industry is rife with mis-marketing). Then after spending a small fortune to bring vitamins into our homes, we know we can choke them back no matter the taste—but we hold the breath of a thousand men and pray to St. Jude while we watch our kids try said new vitamins and wait for the verdict.

Nine times out of 10 it’s a *whiney voice* “I don’t like it” and we are back to square one. You know it, I know it and I’m here to tell you: I’ve got the solution.

Meet MaryRuth Organics

Maybe you don’t know this, but everyone in the south has (AND USES) two names. Mary Mac is Mary Mac and Anna Kate is Anna Kate, not “Mary” and not “Kate.” If you deign to use just one of their names, you are rude and offensive (so no one does it).

This is so hard to get used to because being from Boston, most people have a first, middle and last name, but as a sign of friendship and belonging, we shorten everyone’s name or use nicknames or give them a different name altogether. So Brian becomes “B,” Joanna becomes “Jo,” James becomes “Jake” and Michelle is super tall so we call her “Tree.” 

So all of this to say, let me introduce you to (not Mary and not Mare but) MaryRuth.

MaryRuth Organics was founded in 2014 by MaryRuth Ghiyam, a Certified Health Educator, Nutrition Consultant, Culinary Chef and mom of 4 children under 5 (including twins!). She was inspired to help people live healthier lives after both her father and brother passed away from heart conditions. (You can get to know MaryRuth more via @maryruthorganics on Instagram.)

Why MaryRuth Organics? 

So glad you asked. To be honest, the thing I get sent the most as a blogger is vitamins and supplements. Like I said, the margins are high, the standards are low and it’s easy to make a profit—so much so that the market size, measured by revenue, of the Vitamin & Supplement Manufacturing industry was $39.4 billion in 2022

So when I see a vitamin company that’s innovating, striving for greatness and changing the market, well you know…I’m all in. Here’s what stands out to me with MaryRuth Organics. 

MaryRuth’s is 3rd Party Tested

Not all vitamin companies are third-party tested. It’s not a requirement to get on shelves, so many brands choose not to invest in this. But third-party testing is so important because instead of just the brand claiming claims, an unbiased party is confirming claims. There is a big difference there. 

In MaryRuth’s case, several of their products have been Clean Label Project certified. This means they have been independently tested for over 200 industrial environmental contaminants and toxins like heavy metals, arsenic, lead, mercury, pesticides (including glyphosate—the active ingredient in RoundUp) and plastics (BPA, BPS and phthalates).

MaryRuth’s is USDA Certified Organic 

Not all of MaryRuth’s products are certified organic, but a lot of them are. Most likely that is because it takes time and money to get a product certified organic, and with over 130 SKUS, this will take TIME for MaryRuth. The other factor is some products might not be eligible for the USDA organic certification. 

This is because dietary supplements may only be marketed with organic labeling if they: 1) contain agricultural products such as herbs or vitamins and minerals derived from organically produced plants or animals; and 2) comply with the NOP regulation for their respective category.

Yeah, you read that right: there are actually “categories” or levels of organic that a supplement can be considered at. Here they are: 

  • “100 Percent Organic” = products containing 100% organic ingredients (i.e., only organic ingredients)
  • “Organic” = products containing at least 95% organic ingredients
  • “Made with Organic” = containing at least 70% organically produced ingredients
  • Products with less than 70% organic contents = specific organic ingredient listings are permitted

Many of MaryRuth’s products sit at the top of that list with products that are USDA certified 100% organic. They are also non-GMO; are vegan/dairy free; have no synthetic or artificial colors; are nut free, gluten free, soy free and sugar free; and all tinctures are alcohol free.  

MaryRuth’s offers liquid vitamins and supplements

I can’t even tell you how huge this is. So many of the kid’s multivitamin options are gummies and for the longest time, my 11-year-old has been begging for a pill he can swallow. He just hates that gummy texture. I haven’t been able to find a swallowable kid’s multi pill, but praise be, I found this liquid option

And this isn’t just a good option for kids; this is also a good option for anyone who has trouble swallowing pills or hates the texture of gummies or has digestive issues. Talk about win-win-win, hey?

MaryRuth’s uses liposomal technology

I know I just got sciency, but stay with me for one more min! MaryRuth explains, “Liposomes are tiny spherical structures that have a protective outer layer and an inner cavity to hold and transport substances such as vitamins, drugs or other nutrients to the body. These tiny structures encapsulate these substances and can lead to enhanced absorption.” 

Liposomal technology is also used in skincare too. Basically, it’s a way to preserve and deliver actives (skincare ingredients or, in this case, supplements) more effectively. Another huge win in a category that’s often accused of not being dependable when it comes to absorption benefits.
