What is Nutritional Yeast?

Nutritional yeast is considered as one of the most valuable super foods on earth. It is specifically grown to be used as a health food product.

To produce nutritional yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells are grown on sources like molasses, whey and sugar beets. The yeast is then deactivated by pasteurization, then harvested, washed, dried, crumbled and packaged for distribution.

What Makes Nutritional Yeast Healthy?

Nutritional yeast gets its name from the protein, vitamins, minerals and
antioxidants it contains.

  • Containing 18 amino acids, it is a high-quality, plant-based complete protein, which provides more protein than meat and is much more bio-available. Rich in lysine and tryptophan, it is the perfect complement for use with grains; it has no arachidonic acid cascade as found in animal proteins.
  • It is an excellent source of B vitamins; packed with thiamine, folate, B-6, niacin, Vitamin B-12, folic acid, and etc. Vitamin B-12 is especially important for vegans because it is usually found in animal products, such as fish, meat, eggs, and dairy but it does not typically occur in plant foods.
  • Rich in trace minerals. Nutritional yeast provides 15 bioavailable minerals. It is possibly the best natural food form of minerals available.
  • Rich in glutathione, an antioxidant that helps boost liver and immune system function.
  • Contains both prebiotics and probiotics, which support the gut and aid digestion.
  • Contains glucose tolerance factor (GTF) that helps to regulate blood sugar.


  • Powerful Antioxidants.
    Nutritional yeast contains the powerful antioxidants glutathione and selenomethionine, both of which help protect the body against chronic diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as heart disease, cancer and macular degeneration.
  • Lowers Cholesterol Levels.
    The beta-glucan found in nutritional yeast may also lower cholesterol. In one study, men with high cholesterol who consumed 15 grams of beta-glucan derived from yeast daily for eight weeks lowered their total cholesterol levels by 6%. Another study found that mice fed beta-glucan from yeast had significantly lower cholesterol levels after only 10 days.
  • Repairs Cells and Tissues.
    An article by Dr. Alan Christianson, N.D., published in Nutrition Science News, reports that nutritional yeast provides a significant dose of minerals, such as iron. This is especially useful for athletes who train more than four hours per week, as it can help prevent iron deficiency. Nutritional yeast also contains selenium which repairs cell damage, and zinc which aids in tissue repair, wound healing, and maintains our senses of taste and smell.
  • Holds Antiviral and Antibacterial Properties.
    Dr. Seymour Pomper, an expert in yeast, explains that nutritional yeast has not been associated with the Candida albicans strain related to yeast infections, and on the contrary has proved to be one of the best remedies for chronic Candida symptoms. It has also shown profound effects on E.coli, salmonella and staphylococcus.
  • Improves Digestion.
    German monographs indicate nutritional yeast as a medicinal choice for diarrhoea and loss of appetite, and studies showcase the digestive benefits of nutritional yeast. The probiotics in nutritional yeast have shown positive effects on patients with diarrhoea. In addition, nutritional yeast is helpful for those who suffer the symptoms of lactose intolerance. One study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases suggests that Saccharomyces cerevisiae expresses significant sucrase and some isomaltase activity but no lactase activity, and it has been proposed to improve malabsorption in patients with sucrase-isomaltase deficiency who intentionally or unintentionally consume sucrose.
  • Supports Immunity.
    Research has shown that nutritional yeast can support the immune system and reduce inflammation resulting from bacterial infections.
  • Promotes Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails.
    Some research suggests that nutritional yeast can combat brittle nails and prevent hair loss. It may also help acne and improve other common skin problems associated with adolescence.
  • Supports Healthy Pregnancy.
    Nutritional yeast is a useful supplement for pregnant women as it is rich in folic acid. Folic acid supports the growth of the foetus and helps prevent congenital abnormalities.
  • Prevents Protein Deficiency.
    As a complete protein food, nutritional yeast benefits the entire body. Protein deficiency can lead to:
    A sluggish metabolism
    Trouble losing weight
    Difficulty building muscle mass
    Low energy levels and fatigue
    ■ Poor concentration and trouble learning
    Mood swings
    Muscle, bone and joint pain
    Blood sugar changes
    Slow wound healing
    ■ Impaired immunity

Who Will Benefit from Nutritional Yeast?

Nutritional yeast is naturally low in sodium and calories. It is fat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and suitable for vegans. As a result, it can be a useful supplement for people with food allergies or sensitivities, as well as those on restricted diets.
Nutritional yeast is also a versatile, nutrient-dense food that works for any age. It is recommended for every member of the family, including pregnant women, nursing mothers, babies, elderly and those who are physically weak or ill.
It has a savoury, nutty, cheesy flavour. It can be used to replace cheese in pasta, pizza, popcorn or bread; sprinkled on oats, salads, tofu, and rice; and even added to sauces or soups.

About NewLife Today (formerly NewLife@AmpangPark)
At some period in our lives, most of us have wished for better health for ourselves and for those we know and love. Some way to regain the vitality we have lost.
We want a safe and effective method to combat illness. A way to repair our bodies instead of just treating the symptoms with drugs.
We are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
Wishing to start all over again. Go back to the way we once were physically, at an age before "modern living" lifestyles and bad habits took their toll. Can it happen?
Maybe having someone to show us the how to honestly fight and win the battle against diseases like cancer and heart attack. To defuse the ticking time bombs of high blood pressure, failing kidneys and tired livers. Is there a fighting chance?
At NewLife, we have seen these wishes come true over and over again, it would be irresponsible and unkind not to help, not to share what we know.
Backed by real life testimonies from people who have benefited, we hope you will find, together with us, the way to make your health wishes come true.
Wishing you the pink of health, contact us for free health consultation.
