I read on the food list that brewers yeast is beneficial for me.  What does it do?  What is it really ?

It's high in B vitamins and minerals while being fairly low carb. It has a "cheesy" flavor that may be too strong and unpleasant all by itself, but is delicious sprinkled into soups, scrambled eggs, on top of toasted rice cakes as faux popcorn (I've read it's tasty on real popcorn too, but I can't eat that.)

it goes way deeper than that,

brewers yeast is a good source of DNA and RNA

The tablet form should be good, just not sprinkle-able...  It is a measured amount per tablet and swallowable so it isn't tasted as much.  Just a different form as far as I know.

Well, I am glad I did not get the wrong thing.  Is is yeast like the yeast that is in bread and the bad yeast that grows in our colon?

All yeast is a fungus, but there are different types...

Baker's yeast is used in bread making.  The yeast is killed in the baking.

Brewer's / Nutritional yeast is the form used for nutritional supplementation.  Again, the fungus is dead when taken internally.

The yeast infection in the gut is an active fungal infection.  Candida bacteria is necessary in the gut for proper digestion, etc., but if there is inadequate nutrition for the bacteria for some period of time, the candida bacteria morphs into a fungus and grows as such.  If left uncontrolled, it can cause major problems throughout the body.

Yes, and I was concerned that taking brewers yeast would increase the likely hood of have more candida.  As a non secretor, I battle it constantly.

Dead yeast ingested as a food have no effect on the live yeast in the GI tract. Sugars that feed the live candida will make the candida grow more.

Active yeast doesn't feed on dead yeast or other fungus.  As ruthie says, it feeds on sugar or other simple starches.  Remove those from the diet (and make sure there aren't heavy metal contaminants) and the body should be able to contain the candida and heal over time.

ABJoe, what is the connection between heavy metals and candida?  I have heard this before.  As you may recall, I am toxic in lead and mercury (and possibly tin) and am being tested for some GI stuff.  I have heard that getting rid of candida when one is toxic in mercury can be bad.  I'd love to understand this more.

My understanding is that candida will capture some of the mercury (and possibly other heavy metals) and holds it out of circulation, so if you attempt to kill the candida too fast, you can actually be much more sick due to the release of the mercury into the bloodstream.  My practitioner said that this was happening to me whenever I tried to do a candida cleanse.  Once we understood that, I started working with an oral heavy metal chelation treatment to reduce the amount of mercury and after quite a while, the body started reducing the candida on its own.  Eventually, I have gotten the urine cleared of the fogginess that had been present for many years.  I am still removing mercury along with other junk, so will continue to get better.

I've heard that you should look for "nutritional" yeast and not brewer's yeast, tho some use the words interchangeably.

all tablets contain some form of excipient, which you are best without

find a sprinkable source best

I'm surprised that brewer's yeast does not show up on my SWAMI, I have nutitirional yeast as a black dot and baker's as a neutral. Has this not been tested? Anyone have it show up on their SWAMI report? Speaking of SWAMI any news on the release of version 2? thanks

Dianne, I have both Bakers and Nutritional yeast as diamonds on my SWAMI.  They are under condiments.

I'm guessing that SWAMI is treating brewers yeast as the equivalent of nutritional yeast.  They are similar in nutritional value, just grown on different initial mediums.  (my understanding)
