Riboflavin consists of flavin to which is attached a ribitol side chain. The name riboflavin signifies the presence of a ribose like a side chain and its yellow color.
Riboflavin is found in a wide variety of food but especially those of animal origin

I recently began experimenting with vitamin b2 supplementation and I've had some great results concerning cognitive function, memory and learning, sexual function etc.But it also seems to make it very hard to fall asleep.

Wow that is a good list of benefits.

Do you take it close to bedtime? I find there are some supplements, including NMN that i take before supper... as it was giving me vivid dreams.

I am curious about riboflavin now. Thanks to you both for posting this.

This is as much as I know:-
It supports methylation.
It helps prevent oxidative stress.
It helps to prevent cataracts.
It helps to prevent preeclampsia.
It is used to burn fat or carbs to create energy.
It lowers homocysteine, which may protect against heart disease and cancer.
It helps keep blood pressure under control.
It helps absorb and utilise iron, so helps to prevent anaemia.
