Riboflavin (vitamin B2) functions in two very important enzymes (FMN and FAD), which are involved in the production of energy. Riboflavin deficiency is characterized by cracking of the lips and corner of the mouth; an inflamed tongue; visual disturbances such as sensitivity to light and loss of visual acuity; cataract formation; burning and itching of the eyes, lips, mouth and tongue; and other signs of disorders of mucous membranes.
Riboflavin supplementation is used specifically in cataracts, prevention of migraine headaches, and sickle cell anemia. Vitamin C has been included because it has a synergistic effect with all the other B vitamins.
