Vitamin B2, (Riboflavin)

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

Riboflavin contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the normal functioning of the nervous system, the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, skin, vision and red blood cells. Furthermore, it contributes to the normal metabolism of iron, the protection of cells from oxidative stress and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Through the daily consumption of 5 servings of Mana Powder or Mana Drink, the daily intake of riboflavin is 1.5 mg.

Enjoy Mana as part of your varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Mana is suitable for all healthy adults.
