Pharmacological properties


Riboflavin has a metabolic effect. Participates in the transfer of hydrogen (H +), the synthesis of erythropoietin and hemoglobin (Hb), fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism, tissue respiration, regulates redox processes, and takes part in maintaining normal visual function of the eyes.

Riboflavin activates pyridoxal kinase, which converts pyridoxine (vitamin B 6) into its active form, pyridoxal phosphate. It is a part of xanthine oxidase, glutathione reductase. Promotes the preservation of the integrity of red blood cells, the conversion of tryptophan to niacin.

It is synthesized by normal intestinal microflora and itself is necessary for its maintenance.


Once injected into the muscle, riboflavin is rapidly absorbed. Its connection with plasma proteins is about 60% (mainly in the form of metabolites - flavin adenine dinucleotide and flavin adenine mononucleotide). It is distributed throughout all tissues and organs, deposited in the spleen, liver, kidneys, myocardium and muscle tissue. Metabolized in the liver.

It is eliminated mainly by the kidneys, almost completely in the form of metabolites, however, when high doses are taken, it is predominantly unchanged; in small amounts - through the intestines. Its half-life (T 1/2) is 66–84 minutes. It is excreted by hemodialysis, but more slowly than by renal excretion.

Riboflavin crosses the placenta and into breast milk.
