A deficiency of riboflavin can lead to cracking and reddening of the lips, inflammation of the mouth, mouth ulcers, sore throat, and even iron deficiency anemia.

Riboflavin, Vitamin B2, is a water-soluble vitamin that is well regulated by the body, thus overdose is rare, and usually only occurs with vitamin B2 injections or supplements.

Foods high in riboflavin include beef, tofu, milk, fish, mushrooms, pork, spinach, almonds, avocados, and eggs. The current daily value (%DV) for riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is 1.3mg.
