🪄 I just learnt this about Vitamin B2 . . .

Hey! – Rob here 👋🏼

 

Your Daily Health Fix today is about … 

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)

Why we need it:

Riboflavin, or Vitamin B2, is essential for the body to produce energy from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It also plays a crucial role in growth and reproduction, supports vision, and helps to convert other vitamins like B6, folic acid, and niacin into their active forms. Deficiency in Riboflavin can also impact the absorption of Iron.

 

 

Are you absorbing it properly?

Vitamin B2 is found plentifully in offal (liver, kidneys, heart), eggs, meat, milk, yogurt, cheeses. Even though Riboflavin is a water soluble vitamin, the bile salts produced when eating these fat rich foods help increase the rate of absorption of B2.

 

Conversely, although Vitamin B2 is also found in some grains and vegetables, it is destroyed during the milling process, is highly sensitive to light, and when cooked, usually drains out in the cooking liquids. As such, people who eat lots of refined grains, the elderly, chronic dieters, and those who avoid dairy products may not be getting enough B2. 

 

During periods of rapid growth, as well as pregnancy and lactation, the body’s requirement for B2 increases, so it’s easy to get caught short.

 

It doesn’t take much real food to keep your B2 levels way above minimal recommended doses. If you’re trying to optimise your health, loose weight, or upgrade your performance, use The Health Fix’s Quick Guide – How to Load Your Plate as a framework – you’ll never be short on the micro nutrients that will keep you functioning optimally.

. . . That’s it for this dose,

 

Until the next time – Stay Motivated!💪🏼
