Yep, it’s the same yeast used for making beer. But only when it’s live! When deactivated, PureNature Brewer’s Yeast is a powerhouse of nutrients that can put the B back in your BOUNCE.
This yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae, for you smart ones) is one of the best natural sources of B-complex vitamins. These are the vitamins we all need to help our body digest carbohydrates, fuel energy, think clearly and, basically, function efficiently.
Vitamins in Brewer’s Yeast include:
- Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
- Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
- Niacin (Vitamin B3)
- Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5)
- Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)
- Biotin (Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H)
- Folic acid (Vitamin B9)
PureNature Brewer’s Yeast has also been fortified with B12. This is especially important for the healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system, as well as the formation of red blood cells. Vegetarians don’t get this vitamin from meat so they’re often lacking in B12, which makes Brewer’s Yeast a vege’s must!
And then there’s Chromium. Brewer’s Yeast is a good source of this vital mineral, which is currently a favourite for all the I-Quit-Sugar folk out there. Chromium is essential for regulating insulin, the hormone your body uses to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy. Low chromium levels can lead to increased blood sugar and ‘bad’ fats in the blood. Good levels of chromium, on the other hand, has been shown to help stabilise or even reduce blood sugar levels.
