Default I need some help with my second batch

So I'm on my second batch of Mead, its about six gallons. i was wondering if theirs any natural yeast nutrients i could use (by natural i mean like around the house kinda stuff) to feed my yeast's never ending hunger?

if you have any bakers yeast, you could intentionally kill some by pitching into a small amount of boiling water, then cool and add it. Dead yeast makes up a significant portion of some nutrient powders.
