What is Vitamin B2 Riboflavin?
Vitamin B2 (also known as Riboflavin) is an essential nutritional factor that helps keep your mind sharp and body healthy. B2 is a water-soluble vitamin that is important for the prevention of anemia and also has a role in energy production and cell metabolism. B2 riboflavin deficiency can lead to neurological disorders such as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (common with chronic alcoholism). The recommended dietary intake of b2 is found in most multivitamins, but this may not be enough for those suffering from chronic anemia or who have had gastric bypass surgery. Riboflavin can be found in liver, kidney, eggs and yeast extract products.
Uses in health care:
B2 (Riboflavin) is often given to patients after surgery to reduce the swelling of tissues. It can also be used to treat anemia, which usually occurs when iron levels are too low in the blood. Iron deficiencies are typically associated with menstruation, periods of rapid growth or pregnancy. B2 (Riboflavin) is also used to treat osteoporosis, which involves weakening bones due to insufficient calcium levels. Patients can take iron supplements with low B2 levels to counteract this.
Respiratory problems, severe fatigue, easy bruising and bleeding gums are all indications of deficiency. These symptoms are usually linked to either malabsorption of nutrients or lack of another nutrient in addition to B2, which prevents efficient metabolism in the body. Riboflavin is also used to treat asthma and hay fever sufferers.
Severe toxic side effects can be caused by riboflavin deficiency if it is prolonged. This can include anemia and neurological disorders such as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (a rare condition affecting the brain and nervous system). It can also be used in skin conditions such as Keratosis Pilaris ( Increased hair growth).
Use in pregnancy:
Vitamins are a vital part of a balanced diet in pregnancy. Miscarriage is a possible consequence of too little vitamin B2. It can also lead to birth abnormalities.
Dietary Reference Intake (for the USA) :
The daily requirement for B2 is about 1.4-1.5 milligrams for women between the ages of 19 and 50, 2 milligrams for women over 50, and 3 to 4 milligrams for both men and women 51 or older. The RDI is based on the average requirement per day.
What does it do for you?
Vitamin B2 supports good brain function, assists in the functioning of the immune system, promotes healthy hair growth and reduces tiredness, fatigue, and fatigue-related insomnia.
Vitamin B2 is most known for improving and strengthening the function and quality of red blood cells. It can be found in several sources: lean meats, fish, brown rice, dairy products, and whole grains.
