Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
What is Vitamin B2?
Riboflavin, which is more commonly known as vitamin B2 is a member of the B vitamin group. There are eight essential B vitamins, all of which are essential in helping the body convert foods into fuel, which the body uses to produce energy. But riboflavin is responsible for so much more than this. Vitamin B2 aids growth and red blood production and also works as an antioxidant, which fights free radicles in the body. These free radicles can damage cells and DNA and are responsible for a number of health conditions. The antioxidants present in vitamin B2 help reduce the damage caused by these free radicles. Vitamin B2 is also necessary to help the body change vitamin B6 and folic acid into forms it can use. Brewer’s yeast, almonds, meat, whole grains and eggs are all sources of vitamin B2. However, it can be difficult to ensure you are consuming enough with diet alone. To avoid deficiency, supplementation may be necessary.
