(NaturalNews) We are confronted with the prospects of worsening financial conditions for many, and the prospects of supplement suppression grow with new regulatory bills being introduced to hamper health freedom. It has already happened in the EU and Canada. It might be prudent to look into making your own Vitamin B Complex from yeast or simply ordering nutritional yeast products for your Vitamin B. "Yeastaphobia" shouldn't be a problem once you know the difference between good and bad yeasts, which will also be summarized in this article.

The Importance of Vitamin B Complex

Good digestion requires vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6 to help extract nutrients and provide the hydrochloric acid needed by the stomach. Increased energy and decreased wear and tear from stress are hallmarks of the B vitamins. Vitamin B1 converts carbohydrates into glucose, and other B vitamins help convert the glucose into cellular energy to combat lethargy or fatigue.

B Vitamins also promote healthy hair and nails. But more importantly, the B vitamins help protect the nervous system and promote brain functions. Sufficient B1, B5, B6, and B12 tend to minimize anxiety and stress.

B12 is especially vital for mental energy and stamina as well as important for producing red blood cells and preventing or curing anemia. It is plentiful in meat, so vegetarians may need to supplement B12 additionally by eating wholesome dairy products or free range eggs. Sublingual (absorbed under the tongue) B12 tablets work well also.

Yeast for B Complex

Dr. Richard Passwater of Whole Foods Magazine interviewed Dr. Seymour Pomper, who addressed "yeastaphobia": "...the term "yeast" should not be applied too broadly, not when one "yeast" (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) has been a servant of mankind for thousands of years and another "yeast" (Candida utilis) may cause disease."

There are two types of non-Candida Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast available to us: baker's and brewer's. And there are two types of those, active and inactive. Active is good for baking breads or brewing beer, but not for ingestion. The yeast is made inactive from the heat during the baking or brewing process. When yeast is inactive it is totally safe as it no longer actively reproduces spores. But it retains the vitamins, minerals, and protein.

Yeast does not contain B12 unless it is added. Nutritional inactive yeast flakes that display a T6635 code have B12 added. By chewing thoroughly you absorb the B12 through the small blood vessels in the mouth and avoid the gut's B12 trap. Nutritional yeast flakes with B12 is a cheaper way to take B Complex than using supplemental pills. But still not the cheapest.

The Cheapest B for Thee

Though you may need to find a source for B12 that suits your life style or diet, here's the cheapest way to supplement B Complex. Find a source for baker's yeast, like maybe a bakery. Tell them you want to eat it so please sell you the freshest. It should be very inexpensive. Buy a pound or more.

It's active, so you need to make it inactive by stirring a quarter pound at a time into a pan of water on low heat. Stir each quarter pound until the whole pound is ultimately dissolved, then bring it to a bubbling boil while still stirring. Put it into a ceramic or heat treated glass container, cover it and stick it into the fridge.

Two or three spoons full a day should be fine. You can flavor or sweeten it any healthy way you want. You've got a month or more of B Complex for one at low cost, and you can disregard potential legal restrictions. What a deal!

This is misleading. Brewing does not involve heat. Only when you pasteurize beer do you add heat - and that is not part of the brewing process.

true - and it makes the yeast in beer more damaging than the yeast in bread. Not that I've got anything against beer, mind you. I have a feeling that the person writing the article has never attempted to brew beer.
