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 riboflavin supplement accompanied with other nutrients may improve physical function in athletes and active individuals, a renowned institute study suggested.

According to the Arizona State University, on the basis of metabolic studies, young and older women in exercise moderately (2.5-5 h/wk) appears to be poorer of the riboflavin status in periods of exercise, dieting, and dieting plus exercise than during control periods.

Dr. said, Manore MM " Exercise appears to decrease nutrient status even further in active individuals with preexisting marginal vitamin intakes or marginal body stores" and " active individuals who restrict their energy intake or make poor dietary choices are at greatest risk for poor thiamine, riboflavin, and vitamin B-6 status".

Importantly. active individuals should be more careful with body nutritional status for B-vitamin, as decrease of this nutrients not only may reduce the ability to perform exercise but also lower higher levels of exercise intensities.

The study also suggested that examining dietary intakes and nutritional status in active individuals must be related to to physical activity requirement for promoted energy metabolism and cell regeneration.

Dt. Woolf K, the lead author also found, " exercise may increase the requirements for riboflavin and vitamin B-6, while data for folate and vitamin B-12 are limited. Athletes who have poor diets, especially those restricting energy intakes or eliminating food groups from the diet, should consider supplementing with a multivitamin/mineral supplement".

Taking together, there is no doubt that vitamin B2 is important for ensuring the performance of people with moderate and  high levels of physical exercises, but intake of the vitamin should be taken with care.
