The Health Benefits of Riboflavin

Riboflavin, otherwise known as vitamin B2, is a B vitamin which helps regulate the production of red blood cells and helps preserve a good immune system by stopping free radicals from harming the body. It also helps in maintaining good nails and skin.

The lack of riboflavin would result in the improper functioning of the rest of the B vitamins, like niacin (vitamin B3) as well as pyridoxine (vitamin B6). Essential processes which are important in keeping the body in a proper working and living condition would also be stalled if there is no riboflavin in the body.

Riboflavin is necessary in the production of flavin adenine dinucleotide and flavin mononucleotide. These two enzymes assist the body in converting carbohydrates proteins and fats and turning them into energy. The absence of riboflavin would render the previously mentioned enzymes unable to properly function to make certain that cells are reproduced properly and that  the body is being provided with energy to keep it living.

Riboflavin is also essential in keeping a good memory. This is because it transforms folate and pantothenic acid or vitamin B5 into neurotransmitters which are important in maintaining a good memory. Studies have shown that people with sufficient or high amounts of riboflavin have a better memory compared to others.

Being water-soluble, riboflavin is being expelled out of the body regularly even though very minute amounts of it are kept in the liver and kidneys. Because of this, riboflavin must be replenished daily, since most of it as previously discussed, is removed out of the body through sweating, urination and other forms of excretion. This is why a lot of people have been taking vitamin supplements containing riboflavin. Riboflavin supplements are most especially recommended for alcoholics since consumption of alcohol has been found to reduce the quantity of riboflavin which can be consumed by the body. Old people, those who exercise and those who are diabetics could also benefit well from riboflavin supplements.
