Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 100mg

THERAPEUTIC INDICATION
Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, is a vitamin found in food and used as a dietary supplement. As a supplement it is used to prevent and treat riboflavin deficiency and prevent migraines.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Dosing: Adult
Dietary supplement: Oral: 100 mg once or twice daily
Prevention of migraine headache (off-label use): Oral: 400 mg once daily

Dosing: Geriatric
Refer to adult dosing.

Dosing: Pediatric
Dietary supplement: Infants, Children, and Adolescents: A multivitamin preparation is most commonly used for the provision of riboflavin supplementation in pediatric patients; the use of a single-ingredient riboflavin product as a daily supplement for the prevention of deficiency in pediatric patients is very rare. If single-ingredient riboflavin supplement is necessary, consult product labeling for appropriateness of product in infants and young children in particular.

Migraine headache, prevention: Limited data available, efficacy results variable: Children ≥ 8 years and Adolescents: Oral: 200 to 400 mg once daily; dosing based on a retrospective study of 41 patients (ages 8 to 18 years) who received 200 mg/day (n=21) or 400 mg/day (n=20) as prophylaxis for migraine and migraine-type headaches; results showed significant reduction in primary endpoint of frequency of headache attack; 68.4% of patients had a ≥50% decrease in headache frequency during treatment. However, in a prospective, placebo-controlled study of 48 patients (ages 5 to 15 years), patients received 200 mg/day (n=27) or placebo (n=21) and in the treatment group (riboflavin) no benefit compared to placebo for migraine frequency or intensity was observed; a high placebo responder rate was also reported.

HISTORY
Riboflavin was discovered in 1920, isolated in 1933, and first made in 1935. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Riboflavin or vitamin B2 is an easily absorbed, water-soluble micronutrient with a key role in maintaining human health. Like the other B vitamins, it supports energy production by aiding in the metabolizing of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Vitamin B2 is also required for red blood cell formation and respiration, antibody production, and for regulating human growth and reproduction. It is essential for healthy skin, nails, hair growth and general good health, including regulating thyroid activity. Riboflavin also helps in the prevention or treatment of many types of eye disorders, including some cases of cataracts.

Deficiency:
Riboflavin deficiency is also known as ariboflavinosis. It may be due to the following reasons:

  • Primary riboflavin deficiency happens when the person’s diet is poor in vitamin B2
  • Secondary riboflavin deficiency happens for another reason, maybe because the intestines cannot absorb the vitamin properly, or the body cannot use it, or because it is being excreted too rapidly
  1. For over-all Good Health:
    Riboflavin is a vitamin that is needed for growth and overall good health. It helps the body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy, and it allows oxygen to be used by the body.
  2. Skin and mucous functioning:
    Riboflavin is also used for the development and function of the skin, lining of the digestive tract, blood cells, and other vital organs.
  3. Eye health:
    Vitamin B2 is also important for eye health. According to the studies, this vitamin is needed to protect glutathione, which is an important antioxidant in the eye. Some reports suggests that eating a diet rich in riboflavin can lower the risk of developing cataracts. Taking supplements containing riboflavin and niacin may also be helpful in preventing cataracts.
  4. In Pregnancy:
    Vitamin B2 may be important to pregnancy health, as well. According to a study, riboflavin deficiency may be a factor in causing preeclampsia, a condition that causes high blood pressure in late pregnancy.
  5. In Migraine headache:
    Those suffering from migraines may find that taking doses of B2 may help. A study found that those taking high doses of riboflavin will have significantly fewer migraines.

Hence, we suggest our product in order to gain the overall health benefits of this product.

SAFETY RELATED INFORMATION

Normally, vitamin B2 is considered safe. An overdose is unlikely, as the body can absorb up to around 27 milligrams of riboflavin, and it expels any additional amounts in the urine.
However, it is important to talk to a physician before taking any supplements, especially as these can interfere with other medications.
Supplements can interact with other medications, and B2 supplements may impact the effectiveness of some drugs, such as anticholinergic medications and tetracycline.
Sometimes a doctor may recommend supplementation, for example, if a patient is using a drug that can interfere with the absorption of riboflavin.

Drugs that may interfere with riboflavin levels in the body include:

  • Tricyclic antidepressants, such as imipramine, or Tofranil
  • Some antipsychotic drugs, such as chlorpromazine, or Thorazine
  • Methotrexate, used for cancer and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis
  • Phenytoin, or Dilantin, used to control seizures
  • Probenecid, for gout
  • Thiazide diuretics, or water pills
  • Doxorubicin, a drug used in cancer therapy, may deplete levels of riboflavin, and riboflavin may affect how doxorubicin works.

Some studies suggest that very high amounts of vitamin B2 may lead to itching, numbness, burning or prickling, yellow or orange urine and sensitivity to light. To prevent an imbalance of B vitamins, they suggest using a B-complex vitamin if supplementation is needed.

Children: Riboflavin is likely safe for most children when taken by mouth in appropriate amounts as recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board for the National Institute of Medicine (see dosing section below).

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Riboflavin is likely safe when taken by mouth and used appropriately for pregnant or breast-feeding women. The recommended amounts are 1.4 mg per day for pregnant women and 1.6 mg per day in breast-feeding women. Riboflavin is possibly safe when taken by mouth in larger doses, short-term. Some research shows that riboflavin is safe when taken at a dose of 15 mg once every 2 weeks for 10 weeks.

Hepatitis, Cirrhosis, Billary obstruction: Riboflavin absorption is decreased in people with these conditions.
