The Benefits of Brewers Yeast
Sleep It has been shown to help people having difficulty sleeping. This is due to the Niacin and Vitamin B6 present in the yeast, which work together to produce the brain chemical seratonin, which is essential for restful sleep. Fatigue It has been shown to help people who feel fatigued, since many of the B group vitamins present are essential in the release of energy from the carbohydrates in the food we consume. Diarrhoea It has been used to treat diarrhoea caused by Clostridium difficile. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) releases energy from carbohydrate in the diet, and maintains healthy skin, eyes and digestive tract. Niacin (Vitamin B3) releases energy from carbohydrate, and helps to maintain healthy skin, digestive tract and nervous system. Properties
Brewers yeast contains many different vitamins, minerals and amino acids. The major vitamins are:- Vitamin B1 (thiamin) releases energy from carbohydrate in the diet, and is important for the heart and nervous system.

Flax contains 100 times the quantity of lignans as the next best source, which is wheat bran. Lignans are cyclic molecules with anti-viral, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and anticancer properties. This richness makes flax seeds useful in treating infections and cancer. Two percent of the lignans in seeds end up in the oil, and the other 98% remain in the seed meal which gives the freshly ground flax seed some advantages over the oil. Flax is one of the best sources of alpha-linolenic acid, which converts in the body to the same heart-protective omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, mackerel and sardines. Omega-3 fatty acids help to control arthritic inflammation and allergies, aid in digestion, eliminate dry skin, increase blood flow to tissues and add luster and shine to your pet's coat.
