Brewers YeastIt was only by chance that I learned the benefits of Brewer's Yeast for my dog, Dharma, and myself.   Dharma recently had her tail and a patch of hair shaved because she chewed it raw.  The vet suggested a series of allergy tests, flea products, antibiotics, steroids . . . Dharma received everything except the allergy testing.  And still she was chewing on her tail.

As I was getting my teeth cleaned, the dental hygienist suggested giving her a teaspon of Brewer's Yeast with apple cider vinegar and honey.  I'm not sure what it does for Dharma but she has stopped chewing on her tail and rump; not to mention that she loves having honey on her dog food.

A little googling showed me that Brewer's Yeast is also beneficial for humans.  Yes, it is used to brew beer.  No, you can't drink beer and get the same effects.  I've been eating it sprinkled on toasted sprounted bread with two poached eggs.  In the evening I'll eat it on popcorn.  The dosage is about 3 tablespoons.  Sprinkle it on whatever you want.

Brewer's Yeast contains . . .

  • Folic acid
  • B12
  • Potassium
  • Thiamin
  • Niacin
  • Chromium

It is may be helpful for . . .

  • Diabetes
  • Hypoglycemia
  • High cholesterol
  • Eczema
  • Nervousness
  • Stress
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Repels fleas when given to household pets

I'm not stressed or nervous.  I don't have eczema, carpal tunnel, anemia, fleas nor am I fatigued.  I do get hypoglycemic and have digestive problems.  Taking Brewer's Yeast has been more effective than taking other forms of probiotics like Straight Shot.
