Quincy Bioscience is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel technologies and products that focus on supporting memory and cognitive health. Prevagen, the company’s flagship product, is a dietary supplement that has been clinically shown to help with mild memory problems associated with aging. The main ingredient in Prevagen, apoaequorin, was originally found in jellyfish and has been clinically shown to be safe and improve memory and support brain function.
Ritual is a health brand that believes in simplicity, traceability, and ingredients that work best in the body. The company's debut product, Essential for Women is a reimagined multivitamin for women. The vitamin focuses on the 9 essential nutrients they believe are foundational for women’s health, editing out many of the nutrients in a typical multivitamin that they believe most American women are already getting enough of. Ritual is also vegan, allergen & gluten-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, and manufactured in the USA. The vitamins use “beadlet-in-oil” technology that allows them to keep nutrients in their original forms and closer to what is found in food.
