Vitamin B2 also known as Riboflavin, is a water-soluble, yellow-orange organic compound found abundantly in milk, meat, eggs, nuts, enriched flour, green vegetables, etc. The vitamin is essential for normal cellular growth and function and best known for converting energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism and its antioxidant effects in oxidation-reduction reactions.

Intake of supplement Riboflavin accompanied other nutrients may contribute to improve mental performance, a study suggested.

In a study of 290 children in six classroom sections from a public school in Manila examined by measurement of urinary iodine excretion (UIE) and thyroid palpation showed that levels of energy, protein, thiamin, and riboflavin, iodized salt intake correlated to the variance in deficient and adequate mental performance.

According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute, higher class median of non-iodine deficient was associated to the better psychomotor and cognitive performance in children.

Dr. Amarra MS, the lead author said, "Longer-term factors that can contribute to improved performance are achievement of normal iodine status and elimination of protein-energy malnutrition".

More importantly, riboflavin treatment of 100 mg/d not only increased residual activity but also promoted his cognitive and motor performance partially in a patient with L-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria (LHGuria), a rare neurometabolic disorder.

Additionally, the study also intake of higher levels ofriboflavin 200mg/d, provided further The improvement but not higher.

Taking together, riboflavin could be considered as a potential therapeutic approach in patient of in LHGuria to improved psychomotor and cognitive performance used alone or combination with other nutrients for children with iodine deficiency.
