Nature’s Gift Nutritional Yeast is a truly amazing source of many nutrients packed into one food. It is a complete protein that contains 18 amino acids. It has more protein than meat and is much more bio-available. In addition, nutritional yeast is an excellent source of B-vitamins, including B12 which is especially important for vegetarians. Nutritional yeast also contains GTF, the glucose tolerance factor that helps regulate blood sugar.

The yeast grown on mineral-enriched molasses absorbs the minerals from the molasses, providing possibly the best natural form of minerals (about 15 minerals) available for humans. Primary-grown nutritional yeast contains only a pure yeast strain and has a delightful, nutty flavour. Add a few teaspoons daily to food for optimal health.

Scientific trials revealed amazing health benefits



  • Nutritional yeast was found to be one of the best food-based sources of vitamin B12 for many individuals due to its taste and nutrition properties. Besides B vitamins, it also contains considerable amount of zinc and selenium which are not found in ample amount in fruits and vegetables1.

  • Intake of yeast-derived beta-glucan fiber for 8 weeks following a 3 week period of usual diet showed an improvement in total cholesterol level. LDL cholesterol concentration decreased by 8% at week-8 compared to the initial concentration2.

  • Glutathione plays a vital role in cellular functions and metabolisms. It effectively scavenges free radicals and other reactive oxygen species, slowing down aging process, halting health degeneration and onset of diseases such as seizure, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, liver disease, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and so on3.

For babies (starting from 4 months old), take ¼ teaspoon daily.


For those who are overweight, take 1 tablespoon 15 minutes before each meal


For those who are underweight, take 1 tablespoon after each meal


Recommendations:


Use in dips, sauces and gravies. The proportion is ½ teaspoon of nutritional yeast to 1 cup liquid.


Use 1 teaspoon of nutritional yeast with each cup of flour or meal in baked goods.


Use it as a condiment sprinkled on the evening meal of rice and vegetables, or on popcorn for snack time.


Make a yeast “cheese” to adorn a vegan pizza or lasagne.

The Challenge


The nutritional needs of a growing child are of considerable importance. Essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants play crucial roles in growth and development of the young body, and contribute to increased vitality and improved overall health. Unfortunately, kids can be extremely fussy when it comes to eating. As a result, the basic nutritional needs may be overlooked especially when dealing with children who are picky eaters and have poor appetite.


On the other hand, whether for health or religious reasons, we have an increasing number of vegetarians in our society.  Those who are vegetarian may be concerned whether they are getting enough vitamins and minerals from their daily diet to maintain a healthy body. Vegetarian who eats healthy with all the vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains, may need to be mindful of the lack of certain vitamins, and nutrients. For instance, vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is a vitamin that is necessary for body functions. However, this vitamin is found abundantly in meats, eggs, milk and cheeses, but does not occur naturally in plant-based foods. Therefore, strict vegetarians who do not consume vitamin B12 fortified foods or take B12 supplements may be at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency.

NewLife™ Super Immunity Kids Pack Saved Daniel?s Adenoids and Tonsils


Since our 4-year-old son Daniel was a baby, he often had fever, phlegm, flu, cough, and runny nose. He always breathed through his mouth and we thought it was normal for children to do so. We didn?t know that his nose was blocked because of the inflammation of his adenoids.


Sometime in early February 2008, Daniel had difficulty in breathing and he was very sick with high fever for several days. He was admitted to a specialist centre for 3 nights and was treated with antibiotic jabs. The specialist told us that, not only Daniel?s adenoids were inflamed and swollen; his tonsils had also swelled so big that they had nearly choked him. So he (the specialist) suggested that Daniel?s adenoids and tonsils be removed through surgery.


We were very worried. A friend of ours, Mr. Jarrow Marcus, advised us to seek 2nd opinion and try the natural way as his own child had recovered from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) through the natural method. With that we made an appointment to see Dr. Lynn Tan. She recommended that we put Daniel on the Super Immunity Kids Pack together with a diet that consists of fresh juices, fruits, yoghurt, and Hippocrates? Soup while replacing milk with Spirulina drinks. The pack consists of Flax Seed Oil, K-Salt, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pure Raw Honey, Immuflora, Spirulina Powder, Nutritional Yeast, Bee Pollen Granules, Zinger Organic Herbal Tea and Wonda Oil.


Daniel?s health condition began to improve day by day and at the end of two weeks, Daniel was a new person. His tonsils had returned to normal size. For the first time in 4 years, he was able to breathe normally with no runny nose or blockage. Above all, he has become a cheery child instead of an agitated one. NewLife™ has helped rebuild Daniel?s life and saved us from paying large sums of money on medical bills.


To support Daniel, our whole family also embarked on healthy diet plus NewLife™ supplements. Our youngest son, Jordan (7 months old then in February 2008) constantly had phlegm and often had fever and flu. He was also given the Super Immunity Kids Pack and diet. He too, up to now, like Daniel, has kept phlegm, flu, fever, runny nose, and cough out of his life. As for me, Daniel?s mum, I lost 6kgs of body fat.


Thanks to Jarrow, Dr. Lynn and NewLife™ for providing us with a natural alternative - we are the living testimony that natural healing is the best way to lead a healthy lifestyle.


Daniel, Year 2008
