Vitamin B-2 Riboflavin

Vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin)

RIBOFLAVIN

Riboflavin is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin, also known as vitamin B-2.  In the body, riboflavin is primarily found as an integral component of the coenzymes, flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN) (1).  Coenzymes derived from riboflavin are also called flavins.  Enzymes that use a flavin coenzyme are called flavoproteins (2).
