B2 Riboflavin 90 capsules
B2 Riboflavin New Roots
Vitamin B2, or Riboflavin is a member of the b-complex. Riboflavin is used for phototherapy treatment of neonatal jaundice. More recently, there has been growing evidence that supplemental riboflavin may be a useful additive along with beta-blockers in the treatment of migraine headaches. Riboflavin is found naturally in asparagus, bananas, okra, chard, cottage cheese, milk, yogurt, meat, eggs and fish.
Activity operates mostly within bound flavocoenzymes. Riboflavin participates in oxidation-reduction reactions in numerous metabolic pathways and in energy production via the respiratory chain. Flavoproteins participate in both one- and two-electron transfers. They operate in pyridine nucleotide-dependent and independent dehydrogenation, reactions with sulfur-containing compounds, hydroxylation, oxidative decarboxylations, deoxygenations, and reduction of oxygen to hydrogen peroxide following abstraction of hydrogen from substrates.
We added riboflavin-5-phosphate to make sure that people with certain enzyme deficiencies obtain the full benefits of vitamin B2. This form of vitamin B2 is sometimes referred to as “activated riboflavin” because of its fast-acting effects in the body. Riboflavin-5-phosphate is rapidly hydrolyzed to yield riboflavin after ingestion; riboflavin and riboflavin-5-phosphate are in metabolic equilibrium after absorption. Riboflavin-5-phosphate is the prosthetic group of flavoproteins involved in general cell metabolism as hydrogen acceptors.
Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P) is the active coenzyme form of vitamin B6. Most B complex formulas contain only the inactive pyridoxine HCl form. New Roots Herbal uses P-5-P, as it does not have to be processed by the liver because of its enzyme form and is immediately assimilated.
New treatment for migraines includes 400 mg of riboflavin per day. Ask your doctor before beginning, as this is a very large dose of riboflavin. You also want to make sure your doctor eliminates other possible causes for your headaches. According to the most recent RDA, no cases of riboflavin toxicity have been reported. The stomach/intestines capacity to absorb riboflavin is rather limited.
Take 1 capsule daily with meals or as directed by your Health Professional.
