Vitamin B-2

Description

Vitamin B-2, also known as Riboflavin, is a water-soluble vitamin, and an essential nutrient that the body requires to break down food components, maintain tissue, and absorb other nutrients.

Vitamin B-2 cannot be stored by the body except in insignificant amounts. It must be replenished daily.

Like other vitamins, vitamin B-2 is an organic compound. An organic compound is a substance that (1) occurs in living things, or organisms (hence, the word “organic”) and (2) contains the elements carbon and oxygen (hence, the word “compound,” meaning combination of elements).
