Upper respiratory tract infections
Brewer's yeast is believed by some to treat the common cold, flu, and other upper respiratory tract infections.
While the exact mechanism of action remains unexplained, proponents claim that brewer's yeast increases the immune response in a way that helps the body "treat itself." There is some evidence of this, albeit weak.
A 2012 study from Utah reported that women provided a daily brewer's yeast supplement called Wellmune had 60 percent fewer upper respiratory tract infections after 12 weeks than women provided a placebo.
There is also some evidence that brewer’s-yeast-based supplements may reduce the severity of upper respiratory tract infections in those who are already ill.
Brewer's yeast contains mainly complex sugars and is suitable for use in patients with diabetes. Some studies show that chromium supplements can help people with diabetes control their blood sugar levels because they either don't produce enough insulin - a hormone needed to convert sugar, starch and other foods into energy - or they can't use insulin that their bodies produce. Chromium can lower blood sugar levels, improve glucose tolerance and reduce the amount of insulin needed. Because brewer's yeast is a rich source of chromium, scientists believe that its consumption can help treat high blood sugar.
Several studies have shown that brewer's yeast can help reduce LDL ("bad") cholesterol in the blood and increase HDL ("good"). It is an excellent means of regulating cholesterol, a natural antibiotic that controls bacteria that can be harmful to the human body.
In folk medicine, brewer's yeast is used as a preventive measure against various infections. Yeast contains various polysaccharides that stimulate the immune system by fighting pathogens.
According to research, polysaccharides help in cell regeneration and have an antiviral effect.
Vitamin B plays an important role in the normal functioning of the nervous system and increase concentration. Its absence slows down the conduction of electrical signals of nerve cells to the whole body. Especially vitamins B1 and B6 have an extremely positive effect on the work of brain cells.
The high protein content of brewer's yeast helps to lose weight. Protein provides more energy to the body, and chromium reduces the fat content in cells. However, some people take brewer's yeast in the hope of gaining weight.
