In a Nutshell
  • Riboflavin is a water-soluble vitamin that the body uses to metabolize fats, protein, and carbohydrates into glucose for energy.
  • There is evidence of circular dependency between the thyroid and the enzymatic conversion of riboflavin.
The Research

Prevents depression

Riboflavin may improve mood and prevent depression. One study finds that B2-deficient women exhibit a nonsignificant trend towards unipolar depression. Riboflavin is necessary for the development of folate-dependent pathways that may play a role in depression. Because riboflavin-derived coenzymes are sensitive to thyroid levels, supplementation can be a useful alternative to ensure the body has enough B2.


Calms Hashimoto’s symptoms

Riboflavin can help reduce the proinflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress that aggravate autoimmune conditions. While B2 deficiency cannot be said to cause autoimmune conditions, it is possible that such a deficiency may prevent someone with Hashimoto’s from calming the root cause of their thyroid autoimmunity. 


Reduces migraines

Nearly 30% of people with hypothyroidism have headaches, half of which are migraines. Riboflavin may be an effective way to reduce the frequency of migraines.
