Product No. P02167

Brewer’s yeast is derived from the dried, pulverised cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a type of fungus. It is recovered after being used in the beer-brewing process, but can also be grown specifically for harvest as a nutritional supplement.

Brewers Yeast is an excellent source of all the major B vitamins, with the exception of B12. It also contains other vitamins, including vitamin B2 and B3, sixteen amino acids and at least fourteen minerals, including a biologically active form of chromium.

It is useful for insomniacs, having been shown to help people having difficulty sleeping. This is due to the Niacin and Vitamin B6 present in the yeast, which work together to produce the brain chemical serotonin, essential for restful sleep.

It has also been shown to combat fatigue, since many of the B group vitamins present are essential in the release of energy from the carbohydrates in the food we consume.

It may also help in the treatment of diarrhoea caused by Clostridium difficile.
