Great batteries for a superhero

I live with a crazy rate of our crazy time. It's amazing how much i must to have time for such a short day. Besides, my children, thank God, have an energy medium-sized nuclear power plants, and I have to be as energic as they. I think I wouldn't have coped without the additional "Battery." I share a secret. I never miss breakfast. Breakfast is usually oatmeal. And, frankly, not so much because of its valuable qualities, how much of a sloth! My youngest son loves oatmeal! Well, not  cooking two different  breakfast!
In oatmeal, I add a teaspoon of brewer's yeast. The result - my eyes are opened, and after 5 minutes I feel a surge of strength and desire to move. After breakfast I eat a one teaspoon of chia seeds. It gives me energy throughout the day.

Brewer's yeast

Brewer's yeast is often used as a source of B-complex vitamins, protein, chromium, and selenium. The B-complex vitamins in brewer's yeast include B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), and H or B7 (biotin). These vitamins help break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, which provide the body with energy. They also support the nervous system, help maintain the muscles used for digestion, and keep skin, hair, eyes, mouth, and liver healthy.
Brewer's yeast does not contain vitamin B12, an essential vitamin found in meat and dairy products. Vegetarians sometimes take brewer's yeast mistakenly believing that it provides B12, which can be lacking in their diet.
Acceptance of brewer's yeast causes to the energy peak within 5-10 minutes
 Because brewer's yeast is a rich source of chromium, scientists think it may help treat high blood sugar.
A few studies suggest that brewer's yeast may help lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels in the blood and raise HDL ("good") cholesterol levels. Researchers aren't sure whether that is due to the chromium in brewer's yeast or another substance, and not all studies have found positive results.
 However, brewer's yeast is also used as a protein supplement and energy booster, so it may help maintain a healthy weight.
At least one study has found that brewer's yeast may improve acne. Another linked it to a reduced risk of a second skin cancer. And one large, preliminary study found that taking a specific kind brewer' s yeast product (EpiCor) may help prevent colds and flu.
