Vitamin B2

Vitamin B2 product introduction

Vitamin B2, also called riboflavin, is one of the thirteen essential vitamins in the human body. Molecular formula, C17H20N4O6; Molecular weight, 376.37. With solubility 12mg/100mL at 27.5°C, Vitamin B2 is slightly soluble in water. It is also soluble in sodium chloride solution, easily soluble in dilute sodium hydroxide solution and alkaline solution. But it is stable in strong acid solution, and resistant to heat and oxidation. It will be irreversibly broken down under light and ultraviolet radiation  

The physiological activity of vitamin B2 and the active conjugated double bond existing in the 1,5 position N of isoxazine in the molecule can be used as a hydrogen donor and a hydrogen transmitter. In the human body, two forms of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN) participate in the redox reaction, play the role of hydrogen transfer, and are the prosthetic group of some important oxidoreductases in the body, such as succinate dehydrogenase, xanthine oxidase and NADH dehydrogenase.

The main biochemical reactions involved are energy production in the respiratory chain, oxidation of amino acids and lipids, conversion of purine bases into uric acid, hydroxylation of aromatic compounds, synthesis of proteins and certain hormones, transport, storage and mobilization of iron, and participation in folic acid and pyridine and metabolism of polyaldehydes and niacin, etc.

A: Participating in biological oxidation and energy metabolism in the body. It is related to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids and fats. It can improve the body's utilization of protein, promote growth and development, and maintain the integrity of skin and cell membranes. It has the function of protecting skin, hair follicle, mucous membrane and sebaceous glands.
B: Involved in cell growth and metabolism, it is an essential nutrient for body tissue metabolism and repair, such as strengthening liver function and regulating the secretion of adrenaline.
C: Participating in the metabolism of vitamin B6 and niacin is a model of the coordinated effect of B vitamins. FAD and FMN are used as prosthetic groups to participate in the conversion of tryptophan to niacin and vitamin B6 to pyridoxal phosphate.
D: It is related to the absorption, storage and mobilization of body iron.
E: It also has antioxidant activity, which may be related to flavinase-glutathione reductase
