Riboflavin is a nutrient that has been found to help in fat metabolism via the electron-transport chain (109) and an antioxidant (110). It is also one of many nutrients that helps in the production of red blood cells. Levels of riboflavin has been found to diminish during exhaustive exercise (111).
