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:
-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:
-Throat Swelling or Soreness
-Cracked or peeling lips
-Blurred, itching, watering, sore, bloodshot or light-sensitive eyes
