B2 VITAMIN INJECTION
Known as Riboflavin and is important in helping our body release energy made in our metabolism and is important in helping in breaking down fatty acids.
- In addition to aiding in energy, vitamin B2 can act as an antioxidant by decreasing oxidative injury, which has potential to assist in cardiovascular disease, and other chronic issues related to inflammation. It is required for the production of glutathione, which is considered the “mother of all antioxidants” and is important in many liver detoxification pathways.
- It also functions to aid in protecting our skin and aiding in eye health. B2 deficiency can lead to an increase in risk of glaucoma and cataracts. Due to its role in assisting B6 and B9 to be active it can play a role in anemia.
- There is research showing that can help with chronic headaches, especially when combined with Magnesium and CoQ10.
- Vitamin B2 is found in meats, nuts and fish and if a well balance diet is followed it can assist you in feeling your best!
Deficiency in any of the B vitamins can be caused by a lack of a balanced diet, medication (Especially Diabetic and Rheumatoid Arthritis medications), alcohol intake or genetic issues (MTHF gene). Schedule a office visit today for a B vitamin injection!
