Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Blood Level


Reference Range

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is a water-soluble vitamin, which is involved in vital metabolic processes in the body and is necessary for normal cell function, growth, and energy production. It acts as a coenzyme in the flavoproteins that participate in tissue oxidation and respiration processes. Sources of riboflavin include broccoli, eggs, enriched breads, fish, lean meats, legumes, milk, and other dairy products. Vitamin B2 DEFICIENCY can arise as a result of chronic alcoholism, malabsorption (usually in the elderly) or inadequate intake (mainly prolonged, non-supplemented parenteral alimentation), and causes mucocutaneous lesions including magenta tongue, angular stomatosis, seborrhea, cheilosis. Symptoms may also include sore throat, glossitis, conjunctivitis, and normochromic-normocytic anemia.
