Stan,

i bought a jar of brewer's yeast yesterday, and this morning, I tried to have a tablespoon of it with unsweetened soymilk, but it was so hard to swallow. Might be a silly question, but you swallow the brewer's yeast first and dring the soymilk, or you mix the yeast with soymilk? I tried the both ways, but either way, it sort of got stuck in my throat, and couldn't finish it all. Tell me how you do this.


Thanks!

Yeah, took me awhile to do this right. There is a certain brand that makes brewer's yeast in a form called "brewer's yeast buds," which mixes easier with liquids than the typical kind. What I do is put the tablespoon of it in my mouth, take a mouthful or so of water and swish it around so it becomes a mixture, then swallow. You might have to do it a few times, but this is the best way. It's hard to get it to mix well directly. After this, I drink the soy milk. If the soy milk seems to do something, i've heard you can also take a calcium tablet, but you must have some calcium with it because of it's high phosphorus content. Calcium helps you body process it, and soy milk seems to work the best because most calcium tabs contain additives or are too much at once for the body to handle.

brewer's yeast
I understand it have to be dried and killed, and then used as a dietary supplement for its B vitamin content. Because I was told not to eat live yeast as it take vitamins am I right.

That's true. The brand I mention is inactive yeast.
