supriya Tule I get a sore throat very often and always would attribute it to infection, could it be Riboflavin Deficiency? I eat pretty much everything so what foods should I focus on in that case?

Sangeetha Narayana Swamy Hello Supriya,

Severe Riboflavin deficiency will lead to sore throat. You will also have other symptoms like mouth and lip sores, swelling of the mucous membranes.

As mentioned in the article its the most widely available vitamin, but care should be taken so that you do not lose it during storage and cooking. All the good sources are mentioned in the article (page 4).

Thank you for your query,

Regards,
Sangeetha Narayana Swamy,
