Eating your daily rainbow of minerals and vitamins from fresh, whole foods and living a healthy lifestyle is essential for the body to run properly. Riboflavin is one of the 8 essential B vitamins your body on it’s own does not make or store; so make sure you are getting what you need from your daily diet.

B2 is responsible for maintaining nervous system, proper vision, producing energy and keeping skin healthy. It also:

-Stimulates Metabolism
-Promotes energy production in Brain & Muscles
-Promotes healthy weight loss
-Helps to ease migraines

If you are taking supplements to provide your daily supply, Dr. Andrew Weil advises that adult women need 1.1 mg daily and 1.3mg for adult males. He explains that a deficiency in riboflavin can cause:

-Weakness
-Throat Swelling or Soreness
-Swollen tongue
-Cracked or peeling lips
-Anemia
-Blurred, itching, watering, sore, bloodshot or light-sensitive eyes
-Fatigue
For more info on Dr. Weil

Here’s a list of some of the foods containing B2:

-Spinach
-Broccoli
-Cauliflower
-Beet Greens
-Eggs
-Turkey
-Sardines
-Legumes
-Dairy

Take care of your body and your body will take care of you..

Hi, I’m Kirsten

I am a Gluten Free Nutrition Consultant who’s goal it is to make the lives easier and healthier of those with Celiac disease and those that choose to live the gluten free lifestyle.

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from testing to grocery shopping, to eating out and deglutening your own household, I am here to walk you through the process from beginning to end.  With tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and sometimes just an understanding ear, I will guide you seamlessly through.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010, so I understand completely the trials and tribulations of living gluten free.
