B-vitamins are among the water-soluble vitamin complexes and cannot be stored by the body in most cases. Hence, humans are dependent on regular consumption of the vitamin.
VITAMIN B₂ (Riboflavin) is also known as the growth vitamin, since it plays an elementary role for all the body‘s own processes, which are associated with growth and development – among others, this also concerns the hair and skin. As a vitamin, it forms the preliminary stage to coenzymes, which are indispensable for numerous metabolic processes in the body. This includes, among others, protein metabolism as well as the metabolism of fatty acids, glucose and the entire vitamin B complex.
BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN
An adequate supply of VITAMIN B₂ ensures healthy and resistant skin cells. Riboflavin is an important constituent of the antioxidant network and regulates cell renewal, among others. As a result of accelerating healing of wounds, it also supports the healing process of fresh scars and skin impurities. The body reacts to a deficiency of VITAMIN B₂, among others, with a disturbed skin protection barrier and the negative effects on the skin associated with it.
