Brewers Yeast Benefits
1. Improves Blood Sugar
Incorporating a few scoops of brewers yeast into your diet could help balance your blood sugar levels. In fact, there’s a good amount of research that has looked at the blood sugar-lowering benefits of brewers yeast.
When you eat carbohydrates, it breakes down into glucose, or sugar, in the bloodstream. Increasing insulin sensitivity allows insulin to work more effectively and keeps blood sugar levels from spiking.
Brewer’s yeast also contains fiber, which can help slow the absorption of sugar in the blood and keep blood sugar levels steady.
2. Boosts Immunity
Whether you have a case of the sniffles or a full-blown respiratory infection, brewers yeast may be able to help. Some research has found that it could have immune-enhancing properties.
In one study, giving mice brewers yeast extract is use to decrease levels of some inflammatory markers and help normalize their immune response.
Brewer’s yeast is also high in selenium, a mineral with potent antioxidant powers that could help enhance immune health. In fact, just two tablespoons of brewer’s yeast can meet 90 percent of your daily needs for selenium.
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that selenium deficiency caused a decline in immune function, which significantly improved when participants were supplemented with selenium.
