Riboflavin / Vitamin B2

Water soluble B vitamin involved as a precursor for enzymes critical to energy production via generation of ATP as well as lipid metabolism and amino acids. Lucerne is a good source, but Riboflavin is present in most hays and at a lower level in cereal grains so normal dietary supply is sufficient to meet requirements. Microbes in the gut also synthesize B2 and deficiency disease has not been recorded in horses.
