In recent years, the use of brewer’s yeast as a dietary supplement has become increasingly popular. For years I have been taking brewer’s yeast tablets for my impure skin / acne. In this article I describe what is in brewer’s yeast and what it does for your body. And I share my experiences with you.

Brewer’s yeast is mainly known from the food industry. Consider, for example, ingredients for bread or brewer’s. However, brewer’s yeast is also often used as a dietary supplement. Brewer’s yeast is rich in vitamins and minerals and other essential nutrients. For example, brewer’s yeast contains a high amount of vitamin B (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, B15). In addition, it consists of 45% complete protein, which contains various essential amino acids. Brewer’s yeast is a high nucleic acid. This acid is an important component for healthy cell renewal. In addition, brewer’s yeast contains minerals and trace elements, such as potassium, phosphorus, chromium, iron, selenium, copper, zinc, magnesium etc.
What does brewer’s yeast do for your body?
Brewer’s yeast has a blood-purifying and antibacterial effect on the skin. It is claimed that brewer’s yeast tablets have a positive influence on impure skin and acne. The vitamin B in the tablets would help prevent inflammation and rashes of the skin. In addition, it has a positive influence on sebum production. Brewer’s yeast also stimulates cell renewal of the skin.

My experience with brewer’s yeast tablets:
For years I have been taking brewer’s yeast tablets every day. From my puberty, I suffer from impure skin and acne. Due to hormone fluctuations, I have periods in which I suffer from pimples. If I take my brewer’s yeast tablets every day, my skin will be calmer and the amount of pimples that I have will decrease. My hormone fluctuations are less visible in my skin, it all looks a bit more stable. In recent years I have had periods in which I swallowed my tablets less well. Because I forgot or wanted to test if it still works really well. After a few weeks I noticed a difference, my skin became more restless and the number of pimples clearly increased. As described above, brewer’s yeast must have more positive influences on your body in addition to your skin. I personally do not notice this immediately.
Brewer’s yeast tablets can be purchased at the drugstore or health store. I got my tablets from the health store for € 7.95. There are 900 tablets in my pot. They are small pills, depending on the brand it is recommended to take a few per day. The tablets are not very tasty, they are slightly bitter. You do not immediately notice the effect of the tablets, after a few weeks the effect becomes visible.
