Eat to Nourish: Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)

Updated: Mar 29

Why it matters to include Vitamin B2 (also known as Riboflavin) in your diet.


Conventional fresh food supply chains take days even weeks to get fresh produce to you the customer. As a result, a lot of nutritional value is lost due to natural decaying processes and vitamins are especially volatile and you lose a lot of nutritional value very quickly. Spinach can lose up to 90% of its Vitamin C content in 24 hours.


Because Nourishing Hub is local to the community we sell our greens still growing and you harvest when you are ready to eat, you have no loss of nutrients.


Benefits

  • It helps the body break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats to produce energy, and it allows oxygen to be used by the body.

  • Riboflavin is also used for the development and function of the skin, lining of the digestive tract, blood cells and other vital organs.

  • This vitamin is needed to protect glutathione, which is an important antioxidant in the eye.

  • Levels of certain vitamins, chemicals and minerals in the bloodstream seem to be dependent on healthy levels of B2. Riboflavin (B2) is important to how the body processes iron.
