Riboflavin, or vitamin B2, boosts the metabolism. It has the ability to convert proteins, fats, carbohydrates and alcohol to a form of energy that the body can use. The vitamin also improves vision and contributes to a healthy, glowing skin.
Take action: Stock up on foods high in riboflavin this summer. These include milk, yoghurt, cheese, meat, leafy green vegetables and whole-wheat bread. Since oral contraceptives can lead to riboflavin deficiency, women who are on the Pill should make an extra effort to include more riboflavin in their diet.
