Vitamin B2: Riboflavin, Lactoflavin, Ovoflavin

What is the function of vitamin B2? Riboflavin or vitamin B2 plays a key role in the production of energy by regulating iron absorption, supporting hormone production in the adrenal glands and enabling the body to make better use of nutrients such as fats, proteins and carbohydrates. In addition to this, it promotes beautiful skin, strong nails and good vision. Moreover, vitamin B2 supports normal growth and development and is crucial for a healthy nervous system and liver health. One of its most important functions is preventing birth defects, akin to vitamins B9 and B12.
