Riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, is necessary for the body to be able to activate vitamin B6.* Riboflavin is also necessary for the body's conversion of tryptophan to niacin, and the conversion of folate to folate's various active forms.* In addition, riboflavin plays a crucial role in the metabolism of fats and glucose, the synthesis of red blood cells, healthy methylation, and the production and regulation of certain hormones.*
To be utilized by the body, however, riboflavin must first be converted to its active form – riboflavin 5'-phospate (R5P). A compromised digestive system can adversely affect the body's ability to convert riboflavin to R5P.* And certain prescription medications can also compromise the absorption of riboflavin, putting it in a state of deficiency. Thorne's Riboflavin 5'-Phosphate, which is not derived from yeast, provides supplementation with a bioactive, tissue ready form of riboflavin that can be optimally utilized in the body.*

This blend really works for me when I have cramps, and soothes the anxiety and sensitive digestion that's caused by hormonal changes during this time. It feels like a warm hug for my belly, very soothing and comforting.
Love this product--works great on my many aches and pains--This was the first time I ordered it from Farmacopia--fantastic service--I ordered on a Saturday evening and had it on Tuesday!!! I will be ordering other products in the future from this company
I started using Pure encapsulations ONE multivitaminin 2018 when I consulted a Registered dietitian/nutritionist. She ordered it for me the first time and said it was the best multi-vitamin on the market. Would not consider any other brand. The entire line is very good but the multi is a must.
