The Amazing Health Benefits Of BlackStrap Molasses

The health benefits of blackstrap molasses are endless. This definitely deserves the title super food. The nutritional value is great. Containing 20% iron and 20% calcium per tablespoon, depending on the brand you buy.

Iron Deficiency

It is not only high in iron, it’s also easily absorbed. A few tablespoons of blackstrap molasses a day can give a person all the iron they need. It’s also a great source of iron for vegetarians.

Constipation

Another health benefit of blackstrap molasses is keeping people regular. One tablespoon of blackstrap molasses a day will relieve and prevent constipation.

Fibroids

There isn’t any scientific proof that blackstrap molasses cures or prevents fibroids. But just google blackstrap molasses and there are hundreds of people claiming to use this to treat or cure fibroids.

Regulate Menstrual Cycle

An added health benefit for many women is that blackstrap molasses will regulate the menstrual cycle. No more extra long periods. No more extra heavy bleeding. Menstrual cycles alone is a great reason to take blackstrap molasses. The pain from cramping will disappear. Be sure to get unsulphured blackstrap molasses. The sulphured kind will cause extra bleeding.

Reversing Gray Hair

Blackstrap molasses as reported by many people can be used to treat gray hair. But this remedy will not work for everyone. But there is something out there for everyone. If this remedy doesn’t work henna can be used to color hair. It’s all natural and gives hair moisture. Unlike the chemically loaded crap sold on the market. Using blackstrap molasses to reverse gray hair is not a wake up the next day beautiful remedy. It can take up to six months to see results.

Acne

Blackstrap molasses can be used to treat acne for some people. When you are not regular (3 times a day) your colon can be clogged with lots of waste and toxins. These toxins need to escape. Since the skin is the biggest organ the toxins try to escape through the skin. This causes acne for plenty of people. Of course there are other causes including puberty. But a 27 year old suffering from acne is not going through puberty.

Caution

If your diet contains a very high amount of iron the extra iron from blackstrap molasses can cause an iron overdose. So be sure to cut back on high iron foods before including blackstrap molasses in your diet.

Be sure to get blackstrap molasses. Not regular molasses. The nutritional value is not the same.

Do not place blackstrap molasses in anything hot. This can kill some of the nutrients.

Blackstrap molasses may not cure everything for everyone but it’s worth a try. Being open-minded to the possibilities is virtue.

  1. Reblogged this on Bloody Lymey and commented:
    I’ve read about this for increasing energy …. It’s important to use BLACKSTRAP molasses and not just “any old molasses.” It is reputedly from the 3rd boiling and not the 1st or 2nd.

  2. Just FYI, henna is very drying and damaging to the hair. More so, in fact, than most of the chemical laden “crap” sold in stores and salons. Aside from being damaging to hair, the result of henna coloring on hair is unattractive.
    I agree with the health benefits of unsulphured blackstrap molasses, but if you want to get rid of gray hair your best bet is to see a professional colorist at a top notch salon.

  3. Jordon, red henna dye is awful on hair, I agree, but there are other henna colours, and also clear henna to use for treatment. Are you by any chance a hairdresser? Just wondering. I have never found clear henna drying or damaging to my hair.

  4. Why are you saying we don’t put it in something hot and yet the blackstrap molasses I bought,on the label says,”Drizzle on hot porridge or dissolve in a glass of hot milk”.Please email me back through my email address,because I need to know which is right
