Why do we need to consume Vitamin B2 regularly?

Click here to explore our formulas with Vitamin B2.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is one of the eight B-vitamins that are essential for various bodily functions. It is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning it dissolves in water and is not stored in the body in large amounts, so it needs to be regularly obtained from the diet.


Key functions of vitamin B2 include:
  1. Energy Metabolism: Vitamin B2 plays a crucial role in the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. It is involved in the conversion of food into energy that the body can use.
  2. Antioxidant Activity: Riboflavin has antioxidant properties and works in conjunction with other antioxidants to help protect cells from oxidative stress. It participates in the regeneration of the antioxidant form of vitamin E.
  3. Maintenance of Healthy Skin and Eyes: Vitamin B2 is important for maintaining healthy skin, eyes, and nerve functions. It is involved in the production of mucous membranes, including those in the eyes.
  4. Red Blood Cell Formation: Riboflavin is necessary for the formation of red blood cells, and it contributes to the transportation of oxygen throughout the body.
  5. Nervous System Function: It is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Good dietary sources of vitamin B2 include:
  • Red meat
  • Dairy products
  • Eggs
  • Leafy green vegetables
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Fortified cereals and grains
Symptoms of deficiency in Vitamin B2 may include sore throat, redness and swelling of the lining of the mouth and throat, cracks or sores on the outsides of the lips, and inflammation and redness of the tongue.
As with any nutrient, it's important to maintain a balanced diet to ensure an adequate intake of vitamin B2. In some cases, supplementation may be recommended under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
