Apologize for incorrect date, experienced scheduling conflicts.

Your best friend in the office swears the microwave is killing all the nutrients in her food.

The big guy at the gym with bulging biceps and a t-shirt that says, “Real Men Lift” insists by his diet consisting of protein, protein, and—you guessed it: more protein—is the only way to get that beach body you’ve been dreaming about.

Even your goofy neighbor with a bizarre affinity for taxidermy (no judgement) seems to think he’s qualified to dish out diet and exercise advice.

When talking about health and wellness, there’s no shortage of inaccurate information—particularly when it comes to nutritional supplements.

But with so much coming at you from friends, colleagues, and Internet “experts,” how can you separate fact from fiction?

Let’s check out some widely accepted supplement myths, cut through the white noise, and then get to the facts. 

Supplement Myth #3

Vitamin B2 (also known as riboflavin) is the reason you see that bright yellow or orange color in the toilet bowl.

Flavin comes from the word flavus, which means yellow. The body excretes the riboflavin that it doesn’t need at that time, and the amount can vary depending on your diet and lifestyle.

Just because you may get more riboflavin than you need at a given time,  it doesn’t necessarily mean you are getting enough of many other important nutrients on a daily basis. In fact, it’s rare for most people to eat a balanced diet—the fast-paced nature of today’s world makes it incredibly difficult.

Riboflavin Facts:

Riboflavin can be found in some foods such as: milk, eggs, lean meats, nuts and leafy vegetables like kale.
B vitamins help your body metabolize the proteins and fats in your diet and support the health of your skin, eyes, and liver.
Riboflavin also plays an antioxidant role in the body, helping it to fight off cell damage caused by free radicals.
An Expert’s Perspective:

“Expensive urine is a bizarre argument because a $50 restaurant meal and a bottle of fine wine also lead to expensive urine, but no one seems to be complaining about those things. Numerous studies have shown, however, that vitamin supplements do increase peoples’ blood levels of those nutrients.”

—Jack Challem, veteran nutritional reporter
