Description+

Riboflavin, also known as Vitamin B2, is an essential water-soluble micronutrient that is vital in the process of metabolizing fats, carbohydrates, and flavoproteins within the body. It is a central component of the cofactors of FAD (flavin adenine dinucleotide) and FMN (flavin mononucleotide), required for the synthesis of all flavoproteins within the body. The importance of riboflavin is played by its supply of transportation of the electron transport chain and fatty acid oxidation. Essentially dietary riboflavin supports healthy energy production necessary for the body. The coenzymes, FAD and FMN, connection to ATP (adenosine triphosphate) not only generates energy but helps store in into muscles for later use. It is necessary for the metabolic processes because it sustains cells with energy and keeps them healthy and growing. It is more stable than other B chain vitamin, resisting against heat and acid. Riboflavin assists cells to utilize oxygen more efficiently, keeping eyes sharp, and regenerating healthy nails, skin, and hair. Essentially, it is important for the processes recreation of cells.
