Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for July 25, 2006

Then I find this:

Absorption of Riboflavin

People with stressful lives should take a daily B complex vitamin supplement with about 25mg of riboflavin.

Vitamin B2 called Riboflavin belongs to a group of yellow fluorescent pigments called flavins and is responsible for the bright yellow color of the urine when excreted. Because it is water soluble like all the B vitamins, it is not easily stored in the body and needs to be present in adequate amounts in the diet or taken in supplement form on a daily basis. Absorbed through the first segments of the small intestines, it is better if supplements of the second B vitamin are taken with food. The absorption rate is increased four fold from approximately 15% without food to 60% with food.

Riboflavin absorption rate is increased 60% with food. No one ever told me this. Could this be why I’ve been taking it for so long without results?
