Vitamin B2 is widespread in the nature. It has also been produced synthetically.
The vitamin enters in the body predominantly with the food (beer, liver, eggs, meat,
fish, milk, wheat germs, etc.) It plays role in the oxidation-reduction reactions
in the body. After entering in the organism vitamin B2 interacts with adenosine
triphosphate acid and forms nucleotide compounds, which represent coenzymes of flavin
proteins, participating in the transmission of the hydrogen ions and in the regulation
of the oxidation-reduction reactions. It facilitates carbohydrate metabolism, improves
disturbed lipid metabolism, and it is related to the metabolism of the amine acids.
Vitamin B2 influences the iron and porphyrin metabolism, hemoglobin synthesis, and
10 or 100 ampoules of 2 ml (10 mg).
