Brewer’s yeast: the secret for a perfect skin

Brewer's yeast: the secret for a perfect skin

For centuries, people has been using brewer’s yeast for the well-being of their skin and hair. What are its benefits and how to take it?

Yeast comes  from the fermentation of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, unicellular fungi that are collected and put in a special fermenter. It is developed from a residue of beer fermentation, from which it takes its name.

Other than using it for pizza, bread and other baked foods, this type of yeast is great as a supplement, for your skin and hair health. Our grandmothers ate it to fight acne and speed up hair growth. Let’s learn everything about brewer’s yeast benefits and how to take it.

Yeast: how to take it?

This yeast can have different shapes: dough, flakes, or powder. The dough is slightly bitter and can be difficult to eat pure, while powder and flakes are almost tasteless. Therefore, you can add them to salads, smoothies, juices and soups.

If you do not want to take the powder, you can try yeast-based supplements, such as the Italian Lievito Sohn.

Brewer’s yeast: properties

Brewer’s yeast is a source of proteins, essential amino acids and vitamin B, fundamental for the well-being of the body, the nervous system and the immune system.

In addition, vitamins B stimulate hair growth, making it stronger and more resistant. Try hair brewer’s yeast  especially during pregnancy and changes of season, when it would more likely fall.

Finally, yeast is the best ally to naturally cleanse your skin and defeat acne.

Yeast: side effects

However, yeast has some side effects. An excessive dose may cause intestinal disorders, such as diarrhea and flatulence, eczema and rashes.

In some cases, acne may worsen, because of its high content of vitamin B12.
