Vitamin B2 is part of the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Along with vitamin A, it maintains and optimizes mucosal function in the digestive system and promotes the absorption of iron and vitamin B12. The metabolism of thyroid hormones is also influenced by vitamin B2. It supports the function of vitamins B6 and niacin. Vitamin B2 is involved in fat loss from fat cells and in the conversion of purines into uric acid. It has positive effects on the immune system. It protects against cell degeneration and stress. It also has a positive effect on the health and appearance of the skin and hair. Particularly due to its influence on the thyroid hormones and fat loss function, it is important, especially when losing weight, to take a sufficient amount. A slight deficiency of vitamin B2 leads to symptoms such as fatigue and reluctance to work.
