Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is involved in the energy production for the electron transport chain, the citric acid cycle, as well as the catabolism of fatty acids through beta-oxidation.

Chronic fatigue syndrome[edit | edit source]

One very small study found decreased functional status of several B vitamins including pyridoxine, riboflavin and thiamine.[1]

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A controversial term, invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, that generally refers to a collection of symptoms as “fatigue”. There have been multiple attempts to come up with a set of diagnostic criteria to define this term, but few of those diagnostic criteria are currently in use. Previous attempts to define this term include the Fukuda criteria and the Oxford criteria. Some view the term as a useful diagnostic category for people with long-term fatigue of unexplained origin. Others view the term as a derogatory term borne out of animus towards patients. Some view the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, while others view myalgic encephalomyelitis as a distinct disease.
