Tests Included

Vitamin

Vitamin B2 is a water-soluble vitamin found in foods like almonds, whole-grains, mushrooms, certain dairy products, eggs, brewer’s yeast and some green vegetables.

All B vitamins are crucial for the conversion of food into fuel and metabolising fats and proteins. It is important for the nervous system and brain function as well as a healthy liver, hair, skin and eyes. It also strengthens the immune system. Riboflavin in particular is an antioxidant so fights off damaging free radicals and helps the body use vitamin B6 and folate, as well as assisting in growth and red cell production.

Although rare, vitamin B2 deficiency can occur. Symptoms include anaemia, fatigue, slowed metabolism, nerve damage, a swollen tongue, mouth sores and cracks, skin inflammation, sore throat, swelling of the mucus membranes and changes in mood.

Elevated riboflavin is likely to be due to over-supplementation. Although high levels are rarely dangerous, vitamin B2 supplements can interact with other medication and cause a reaction.
