In addition to producing energy for the body, riboflavin also works as an antioxidant by fighting damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells and DNA, and may contribute to the aging process, as well as the development of a number of health conditions, such as heart disease and cancer.
Riboflavin is also needed to help the body change vitamin B6 and folate into forms it can use. It is also important for body growth and red blood cell production. It enhances energy, helps dry/cracked lips and mouth, decreases stress and promotes good vision.
SOURCE: Good sources of vitamin B2 include Milk/dairy, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, yoghurt, breads/cereals and liver/lean meat.
