BREWER'S yeast has emerged as the latest remedy for keeping swine flu at bay.

Julie Goodwin, who runs Natural Health in WGC, told the WHT that sales of Beta Glucans, which contain the yeast, had risen sharply.

The 48-year-old said: "In the last week, I have sold 100 units, whereas previously I would have sold perhaps one a month.

"It is my number one product at the moment."

"Anyone who generally goes down with coughs and colds I would recommend it."

She added: "There are no side effects at all."

But despite the extra revenue generated by these sales, Julie admitted the high street was still a tough place to be in the current economic climate.

So, to combat this and raise awareness of her store, she has decided to use the latest technology to its full extent, recording podcasts and providing updates on the microblogging site Twitter.

She said: "A lot of retailers are really struggling at the moment, so I have tried to find different ways of promoting myself."
