Fish such as pollack or mackerel quickly cover the daily requirement of vitamin B2. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily dose of 1.0 - 1.4 mg vitamin B2 for adults. For a small child, the recommended amounts of vitamin B2 are naturally lower. Adolescents and pregnant women have a higher need for vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 is best taken daily through a healthy and balanced diet to avoid a vitamin B2 deficiency.
3. can too much vitamin B2 be harmful?
If the human organism receives more vitamin B2 than it needs, the excess riboflavin is excreted in the urine. An extreme surplus of vitamin B2 cannot be absorbed by the intestines at all, so that vitamin B2 is even excreted unused and unprocessed. No side effects are known so far.
4 What happens if there is a lack of vitamin B2?
A lack of vitamin B2 usually occurs very rarely. A vitamin B2 deficiency is only promoted by the intake of certain drugs. These include, for example, the intake of chemotherapeutic drugs and psychotropic drugs. Heavy alcohol abuse can make it difficult to absorb vitamin B2 and can cause a vitamin B2 deficiency.
A vitamin B2 deficiency can be recognised by various signs such as
