Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) deficiency

Updated: Sep 23

Vitamin B2 supports a broad spectrum of health benefits; best known for its crucial roles in thyroid function and energy metabolism; it's also essential for healthy vision and tissue repair. For example, vitamin B2 helps break down the calories from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that you intake to supply the body energy. Vitamin B2 also helps produce new red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body, improving the digestive tract lining, mucous membrane, & blood vessel wall. It also maintains healthy hair & skin and supports brain neurotransmitters that carry messages.


Eating foods enriched with vitamin B2, such as cereals, whole grains, mushrooms, almonds, red meats, or green leafy vegetables, can help supply vitamin B2 to your body. It is a water-soluble vitamin that is flushed out daily with the urine. Since it cannot be stored in your body and must constantly replenish, there is a chance you could suffer from vitamin B2 deficiency if you do not eat the suitable types of foods or take vitamin B2 supplements.


Vitamin B2 deficiency symptoms include cold sores, sore tongue, and lips, chapped lips, infection in the mouth and throat; susceptible to light, irritation in the eyes, and bloodshot eyes; acne, dry skin, rashes, hives, and hair loss; allergic sinusitis, yeast infection, urine infection, and mucosal inflammation; indigestion, ulcers, polyps, and hemorrhoids; low energy, frequent dizzy spells, slow mental responses, mood swings, insomnia, night terrors, and infertility, etc.
