Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), as flavin mononucleotide (FMN) or flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), acts as an essential coenzyme in many oxidation-reduction reactions. Flavins are critical for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.FAD is part of the electron transport (respiratory) chain, which is central to energy production. In conjunction with cytochrome P-450, flavins also participate in the metabolism of drugs and toxins.
Riboflavin is unique among the water-soluble vitamins in that milk and dairy products make the greatest contribution to its intake in Western diets. Biochemical signs of depletion arise within only a few days of dietary deprivation. Poor riboflavin status in Western countries seems to be of most concern for the elderly and adolescents, despite the diversity of riboflavin-rich foods available. Deficiency results in oral, ocular, cutaneous, and genital lesions. Primary riboflavin deficiency is associated with inadequate consumption of milk and other animal products. Secondary deficiencies are most common in chronic diarrheas, liver disease, chronic alcoholism, and postoperative situations in which nutrient infusions lack supplementary vitamins.
