Vitamin B2 / Riboflavin
Vitamin B2, aka riboflavin, is one of the B vitamins required for healthy energy production. Besides breaking down carbohydrates to provide energy to your body, it plays a huge role in adrenal function and cell growth and acts as an antioxidant. If you eat dairy and meat, it’s pretty rare to have a B2 deficiency, since it’s rich in foods like beef liver, beef, pork, milk, plain yogurt, eggs, and salmon. Vegetarians and vegans can get their B2 from almonds, spinach, mushrooms, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, quinoa, lentils, tahini, and fortified foods like tofu, but a supplement might be a good insurance policy. That’s especially true for athletes who are vegan, since intense exercise can deplete your body’s levels of this water-soluble vitamin. Because B2 encourages healthy energy production, Lymies consider it (and all B vitamins) essential for their healing and recovery.
