brewer's yeast and uric acid

Answered on August 12, 2013

I am thinking of supplementing with brewer's yeast, mainly because of the thiamin content (cronometer always gives me low scores). But I've read here that it may raise your uric acid. Is there a safe dose? Maybe the tablets are safer than the powder?

I usually get around 50% RDA. I am afraid of taking a B complex supplement because of the megadoses. Is a weekly complex a wise choice given that Bs are water soluble and won't remain in your body for long?

From a paleo perspective, I would be much more concerned about what the brewer's yeast is grown on. These days, it's either beets or the by-products of beers making (basically, from wheat). You'll probably have an easier time finding good brewer's yeast, from beets, in powder form. But yes, yeast is one natural food where the uric acid levels are quite high, and considering that yeast is rarely eaten in large quantities (unless you are purposefully supplementing), supplementing with brewer's yeast is probably not that safest option.

How bad is your thiamine levels? Would a weekly B-Complex dose not suffice?
