To be utilized by the body, however,
riboflavin must first be converted to its active form – riboflavin
5'-phospate (R5P). A compromised digestive system, however, can
adversely affect the body's ability to convert riboflavin to R5P.* And
certain prescription medications can also compromise the absorption of
riboflavin, putting it in a state of deficiency. Thorne's Riboflavin
5'-Phosphate, which is not derived from yeast, provides supplementation
with a bioactive, tissue ready form of riboflavin that can be optimally
utilized in the body.*
Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, is necessary for the body to be able to activate vitamin B6.* Riboflavin is also necessary for the body's conversion of tryptophan to niacin, and the conversion of folate to folate's various active forms.* In addition, riboflavin plays a crucial role in the metabolism of fats and glucose, the synthesis of red blood cells, healthy methylation, and the production and regulation of certain hormones.*
