Does nutritional yeast make you bloated?

Does nutritional yeast make you bloated?

Fermentation: It certainly can. Consider that yeast is used to make bread (which rises up from the gas bubbles produced)... and of course beer which has all those bubbles! So if you're consuming yeast - I would expect 'gas' to form in your GI tract and created the bloated symptoms you're feeling. Why not take a break from the yeast and see if it goes away? ...Read more

Eat pickled food: Yeast is the normal bacteria found in breads, yogurts, cheese etc that provide natural probiotics. An alternative to cheese like products is to eat other naturally occurring live food that cultures have enjoyed for many years such as Kim-chee, pickled veggies and fruit found in many Asian markets or visit your local health food store and ask them for advice. ...Read more

Can you overdose on nutritional yeast, I put like a cup in my vegetables and I have tummy ache, will I be poisoned, is it toxic?

Everything in...: Everything in moderation, is one of life's rules. Nobody really knows what's in a bottle labeled "nutritional yeast". It could be yeast, but may have a variety of other stuff in it. Who knows? Realize that a person can overdose on water, if he drinks too much at one time. The key to living better and living longer, is everything in moderation. ...Read more

Could it be a yeast infection or herpes outbreak with no odor or discharge but itchy clitoris? Could I even have an allergic reaction to something?

Could it be a yeast infection or herpes outbreak with no odor or discharge but itchy clitoris? Could I even have an allergic reaction to something?

Itchy private areas: I think you are right on track -this could well be an allergy to something, and I would want to know if you tried any new feminine products, detergents/soaps etc. Certainly fungus likes moist areas and could cause these symptoms. Herpes is usually PAINFUL and would be much less likely. If symptoms don't get better in a day or two, I'd want u to see your gyn or primary doc for a definite diagnosis. ...Read more

Vagina extremely sore, swollen, and red after epsom salt bath. Could I already have a yeast infection or could it be an allergic reaction?

Irritation: The question we need to know is why were you taking the epsom salt bath in the first place. If the bath was used to treat an infection, then the epsom salt might just have aggravated it. On the other hand, if you put in too much salt in, then you can an irritation from the salt itself. ...Read more
