Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2)

Riboflavin is helpful for red blood cell formation, production of antibodies, cell respiration, and normal growth. Riboflavin, like other B-Vitamins is directly associated with metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.                 

In one open clinical study, high-dose riboflavin showed significant effectiveness as a migraine treatment. In a subsequent randomized trial, 400 mg of riboflavin and placebo were tested for three months in 55 migraine patients. In the riboflavin group, 59% improved by at least 50%, compared with 15% of the placebo group showing at least 50% improvement.
