Category - Vitamin B2 [Riboflavin]

Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2 is an easily absorbed, water-soluble micronutrient with a key role in maintaining health in humans and animals. It has been suggested that the need for many of the B vitamins increases during exercise because of their role as coenzymes in the oxidative processes of cells. Riboflavin is necessary for the synthesis of two important coenzymes that play an important role in the metabolism of glucose, fatty acids, glycerol, and amino acids for energy. Therefore, the needs for riboflavin have been linked to energy intake and expenditure. Studies are showing that supplementing with riboflavin does not improve training ability.
