Fight the Flu Part 4

Sick of hot water with lemon?
Drink hot water with 1-2 Tbsp of Brewers Yeast

It might be pretty gross and bitter BUT it can help fight off the flu, diarrhea, and respiratory illness.
It is packed full of B vitamins - B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), and H or B7 (biotin).  (but no Vit.B12 -which is found in meat products)
It can also help support the nervous system, help maintain the muscles used for digestion, and keep skin, hair,(it may even prevent the graying of hair) eyes, mouth, and liver healthy.

If you are taking any medications though, make sure to talk to your doctor before you start taking brewers yeast because it can interact with a lot of medications.
It also has not been tested on children - so maybe still with the hot lemon for the kids!
