Abstract:

Six moderately active young adults received a riboflavin-deficient diet 0.07 mgday for 56 days. Submaximal work performance was measured at three levels on the treadmill-4, 7, and 10 grade-all at 3.4 mph. Physiological parameters, e.g., heart rates, pulmonary ventilation, oxygen uptakes in mlkgmin taken during the depletion-repletion periods were all essentially unchanged from pre-depletion values. The study demonstrated that performance was not significantly changed during riboflavin depletion as compared with pre-depletion value. Author
