Vitamins

also known as: Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2 contributes to the quality of the animal’s skin and coat. A deficiency produces changes to the skin around the eyes and the abdomen.

A little background information

After being confused with vitamin B1, riboflavin was finally discovered in 1937, but it was only in the eighties that a number of disease were identified with very general symptoms, caused by a deficiency of this vitamin. It is water-soluble.

Its role in the body

Riboflavin is a coenzyme, which means it is essential to the functioning of a given enzyme, with a role in many biochemical reactions, including the production of energy from fat, the catabolism of amino acids and the functioning of the cell’s energy plants.

Natural sources

Vitamin B2 is very common in nature, being found in yeast, liver, cheese, eggs and all diary products. It is also produced by the intestinal bacteria of dogs and cats. Riboflavin is very light-sensitive.
