Vitamin B2 as riboflavin functions in two important enzymes, flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD).
These enzymes act as cofactors for a wide variety of oxidative enzyme systems, and are central to energy production, drug metabolism, and lipid metabolism.
Riboflavin has powerful antioxidant potential due its ability to regenerate GLUTATHIONE via glutathione reductase. Riboflavin deficiency is associated with increased lipid peroxidation; supplementation of riboflavin can inhibit this process
Riboflavin supplementation can result in a harmless yellow discolouration of the urine - it is thought that this effect is due to bacterial action on riboflavin, with metabolites then being absorbed and then excreted in the urine
