Brewers yeast
Is it Ok to take this for a vitamin B supplement - it seems so cheap compared to vit b supplements and I cant believe it can be as good.
Also can it cause thrush in any way because i am susceptible to this and dont want to take brewers yeast if it can

According to one article that Brewer's Yeast does NOT increase the susceptibility to or exacerbate Candida albicans infections (as Brewer's Yeast is a totally different type of yeast to Candida albicans).

There are better B complexes but for value for money brewers yeast is reasonable option.
