Coloradan’s know beer, but perhaps what you don’t know is that one of the key ingredients in some of the best craft beers can also be found in some quality dog foods due to its highly beneficial properties. Brewer’s yeast has been around since 2000 BC. Aside from catalyzing fermentation in beer, it  has been used as a natural and holistic nutritional supplement to improve overall health in both man and his best friend. Its composition includes B-complex vitamins, selenium, and chromium. Combined these give dogs a natural boost in energy and improved digestive health.

B-complex vitamins found in brewer’s yeast aid in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins helping your dog with digestion and supporting their nervous system. Chromium is known to aid in regulating insulin to help control blood sugar and prevent diabetes, and the body uses Selenium as a building block to build solid, lean muscle. If  your dog suffers from stress, abnormal hyper behavior, or separation anxiety studies have shown that foods with Brewer’s yeast can decrease these behaviors.

If your dog is highly sensitive adding any type of yeast to their diet, including Brewer’s Yeast, can increase sensitivity. However, Brewer’s Yeast has been proven to be safe for most dogs, and can be found in premium holistic dog foods. So next time you purchase dog food be sure that this beneficial supplement is included to help your dog live a longer and healthier life.
