Supplements with brewer's yeast and inactive yeast flakes can bring a series of benefits to the body, due to the rich nutritional composition.

However, you should know that these products do not replace a healthy diet and the treatment recommended by the doctor, in case there is a need to treat certain ailments. Also, the studies are currently insufficient, which means that the benefits are not guaranteed.

What effects can brewer's yeast have on health:

Strong antioxidant properties

Inactive brewer's yeast flakes contain antioxidant compounds, such as glutathione and selenomethionine. They help the body fight against free radicals, molecules that damage cells and favor the appearance of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Eating foods rich in antioxidants helps to reduce the risk of developing these diseases (1).

Increasing energy levels

Brewer's yeast and inactive yeast flakes contain vitamins from the B complex, which support metabolism and obtaining energy from food.

Also, thanks to the content of vitamin B12, inactive yeast flakes prevent fatigue. Exhaustion can be a symptom of B12 deficiency (5).

Also, according to studies, the consumption of inactive yeast flakes is associated with faster recovery after sports training (5).

Improvement of digestion

Brewer's yeast supplements have a probiotic action and are used to maintain an optimal intestinal transit. They can also be useful as an adjunct to the treatment of certain digestive problems (3):

irritable bowel syndrome;
traveler's diarrhea;
diarrhea caused by antibiotics;
lactose intolerance.

Support of immunity

Supplementing the diet with brewer's yeast appears to be associated with a lower risk of upper respiratory tract infections (3).

Beta-glucan and alpha-mannan from the composition of inactive yeast flakes could increase immunity through antifungal, antibacterial action and support of the intestinal microflora (1).

Reduction of blood pressure in diabetics

In the clinical study conducted by Payam Hosseinzadeh et al. (6), the effects of brewer's yeast supplementation were studied in patients with type 2 diabetes. After 12 weeks, lower diastolic and systolic blood pressure values ​​were recorded.

Improvement of glycemic control

In patients with type 2 diabetes, brewer's yeast supplements can have a moderate effect of reducing blood sugar and improving insulin sensitivity (7).

The improvement of glycemic control is attributed to the chromium in the composition of this product. To benefit from a high intake of chromium, opt for supplements with brewer's yeast where the aroma has not been removed.
