The Immune System Boosting Powerhouse!!

Do you find yourself getting sick more often in the fall or winter? You should consider making this immune-boosting powerhouse an everyday part of your diet.

Nutritional yeast is safe for everyone including your pets!! Nutritional yeast is de-activated yeast grown on beet and sugar cane molasses. Do not confuse it with brewers or bakers yeast. They are not the same. Nutritional yeast is rich in protein, B vitamins, and minerals and contains beta-glucan's.

Beta-glucan's boost the part of the immune system that fights bacteria and viruses. I know many endurance athletes that tend to get a cold or infection after a physically hard event such as a half-marathon, marathon and Iron-Man competitions.

The immune system is reduced by 30% or more after the body goes through that type of physical stress. Studies show nutritional yeast when used regularly prevents that drop in immune function, helping to prevent bacterial and viral infections after tough physical events. It can also help boost recover time.

Because it is de-activated it cannot cause a yeast infection. Actually it can help stop or prevent yeast infections. You can't eat to much and it can be used in a variety of ways. I put 1/2 tsp in each of my Vive shakes!! I like the flavor of the Bragg's brand best. #nutritionalyeast #viveshake
