Vitamin B2 is needed to be consumed every day because our body is only capable of holding minimal amounts of it, leading it to be used up rapidly. It is needed to break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It is also essential in keeping the eyes, nerves, muscles, and skin healthy.
Riboflavin (vitamin B2) deficiency impairs NADPH oxidase 2 (Nox2) priming and defense against Listeria monocytogenes.
