In brief: Brewer's Yeast

Brewer's yeast comes from a 1-celled fungus (saccharomyces cerevisiae) used in making beer, but not bread.
It's been used for years as a nutritional supplement, because it's rich in b-complex vitamins, chromium, and selenium. However, it contains no vitamin b12. Studies have shown it helpful in diabetes, high cholesterol, etc -- but no direct effect on thyroid. http://tinyurl.com/kfvkmn5.

In brief: Hypothyroidism

Brewers yeast contains many proteins, vitamins and minerals.
It is used to make beer. But this is not treatment for thyroid disease. See your doctor and have your thyroid condition monitored and treated appropriately.
