Yeast is a microscopic fungus naturally found on flowers, trees, fruits, and vegetables. It’s a rising agent often used in baking bread for a well-risen cracked golden crust. You can also add yeast as a B12 supplement in meals, which is helpful for vegan diets and anyone at risk of a B12 deficiency. If you’re using yeast for vegan purposes, make sure to check the label.

Benefits of yeast

There are a significant number of benefits to adding yeast to your diet, and here are our top few:

Supports your immune system - Yeast stimulates the immune system, keeping it active and helping cells fight illness with antimicrobial activity.

Abundant in B12 - The vitamin B12 is integral to a healthy nervous system, helping balance an array of hormones, including the stress hormone cortisol.

Brimming with antioxidants - Antioxidants fight harmful radicals that attack and degenerate cells. Consuming yeast regularly can defend your body against these attacks, slowing signs of ageing and preventing inflammation.

Source of protein - Yeast is a natural, plant-based source of protein. This makes it an excellent ingredient to include in vegan meals or if you want to increase your protein intake.

Lowers cholesterol - Yeat contains a component called beta-glucan. This stops the overabsorption of cholesterol in the gut for balanced levels of LDL cholesterol.
