Vitamin B2 | Riboflavin

Riboflavin, or vitamin B2, is a yellow-orange water soluble compound that, among other things, acts as a precursor to certain basic coenzymes such as flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). In these coenzymes, riboflavin is covalently bound and acts as a catalyst for oxidation-reduction reactions.

Riboflavin contributes to:

  • Normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Normal nervous system function
  • Maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin, vision, and red blood cells
  • Normal iron metabolism
  • Protection of cells from oxidative stress
  • Reduction of tiredness and fatigue

Riboflavin is a natural component of the ingredients in ManaPowder and ManaDrink, but we also add it to achieve the recommended intake. Precise information on the quantity of riboflavin in ManaPowder Origin can be found here. Precise information on the quantity of riboflavin in ManaDrink Origin can be found here.

Mana is nutritionally complete food. Enjoy it as part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
