10 Blackstrap Molasses Benefits That Will Convince You To Get A Jar

August 13, 2019

An ingredient that can most likely be found
in your pantry is blackstrap molasses, which is a thick, dark syrup. It is made when sugar cane plants are processed
to make sugar. Even though the refined sugar is largely considered
unhealthy, the thick, syrup of molasses holds minerals and nutrients that are absorbed by
the plant. These minerals and nutrients include: Iron,
Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese, Vitamin B6, Copper and Selenium. Molasses also has no fat, cholesterol and
barely any sodium. Therefore, it can be consumed by a diabetic
person. It is important to consume this product in
moderation, so therefore no more than one tablespoon per day. Here are the top 10 health benefits of blackstrap
molasses: 1. Prevents Anemia Blackstrap molasses is a great source of iron
and therefore can be essential to someone who has iron-deficiency anemia. Since it is a good source of iron, it helps
your body to create more red blood cells, which carry oxygen from your lungs to the
rest of your body. One tablespoon of blackstrap molasses immediately
provides your body with fifteen percent of your daily value of iron. Simply mix one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses
into a cup of hot water or milk. Consume this mixture once or twice per day. 2. Reduces Menstrual Problems Blackstrap molasses contains certain minerals,
such as Magnesium and Calcium, that can help relieve menstrual cramps. It can also help your body to maintain healthy
muscles in your uterus. The iron in the molasses helps to reduce the
chances of becoming anemic because of the blood lost. This is common in women who have irregular
periods. Simply drink one cup of warm water mixed with
one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses daily to prevent premenstrual (PMS) symptoms, such
as tenderness in the breasts, bloating, retention of water, acne, becoming depressed and becoming
irritable. The molasses is also able to help to control
heavy bleeding. 3. Cures Constipation and Improves Other Digestive
Problems Blackstrap molasses is a natural laxative
which can soften your stool. It can help to relieve constipation and make
your bowels more regular. This is due to the high Magnesium content
in the molasses that helps to relax your muscles and bring water into your stool, which makes
it naturally easier to pass. Blackstrap molasses can even help other stomach
and digestion ailments, such as stomach ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and diarrhea. In order to use for stomach related issues,
mix one to two teaspoons of blackstrap molasses into a cup of warm water. Drinking this mixture before bedtime will
help your digestive system to be ready to work properly in the morning. 4. Improves Heart Health Blackstrap molasses can even help to control
heart related issues, such as palpitations, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and
more. This is because the molasses is high in Potassium,
Iron, Calcium and Magnesium. All of these nutrients help to prevent your
body from experiencing deficiencies that can cause heart palpitations. Also, the potassium in the molasses helps
to lessen the affects of sodium on your heart. Blackstrap molasses also contains Vitamin
B6, which is able to help treat blood clotting. Therefore, it helps to reduce the risk of
stroke and other cardiovascular issues. 5. Combats Stress A common vitamin that is recommended by health
experts to improve your mood and ease the effects of stress is Vitamin B. This vitamin is found in blackstrap molasses
and therefore can help your brain and nervous system to function properly. It can also help you to feel relaxed, fight
stress and fight fatigue. When you are feeling stressed out, consume
a spoonful of blackstrap molasses mixed into a glass of milk, or add to your favorite smoothie. 6. Prevents Cancer It is also believed that blackstrap molasses
can also be used to prevent and treat certain types of cancer. This is because the molasses contains Selenium,
which helps your cells to defend themselves against cancerous cells. Selenium can also help to protect your body
against harmful contaminants, such as Mercury, Cadmium and Silver. It can also help to eliminate cancerous cells
and slow the growth of any tumors. 7. Increases Stamina and Energy Blackstrap molasses can also help to give
you more stamina and energy. Since it is made from sugar, it offers a temporary
energy boost when it provides your body with carbohydrates that are converted into energy
in your body. When you are feeling sluggish, or low in energy,
add one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses to a glass of warm water or milk. Consume this mixture once or twice daily to
maintain your energy levels. 8. Maintains Strong Muscles and Bones Blackstrap molasses also is high in Calcium,
which helps your body to strengthen your bones. One tablespoon of the molasses can provide
your body with over ten percent of your daily value of Calcium. While daily exercise is equally important,
adding one or two tablespoons of blackstrap molasses into your daily regime will only
benefit you. 9. Improves Sleep Blackstrap molasses can even help to cure
insomnia, since it is high in Calcium. Calcium can help your body to produce melatonin,
which helps your body to feel tired. The Magnesium in the molasses is also a natural
nutrient that helps your body to feel tired. 10. Maintains Hair Health Consuming blackstrap molasses on a daily basis
can even improve your hair health, your hair growth and your hair color. Along with consuming blackstrap molasses,
you can apply it directly to your hair. Here’s how: Mix 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses in
1 cup of lukewarm water. Apply it on your hair and scalp and let it
sit for 15 minutes. Shampoo your hair as usual. Repeat 1 or 2 times a week. It is important that when you buy blackstrap
molasses, that you purchase only molasses that is organic and unsulfured. Unsulfured blackstrap molasses is free of
Sodium Dioxide and therefore does not cause allergic reactions in your body. Now, we are curious. Have you consumed blackstrap molasses for
any of these reasons? Do you plan to add blackstrap molasses to

    It’s a sugar, can be consumed by a diabetic? Plus it gives energy due to sugar yet it helps you to sleep by increasing melatonin? All these are contradictory statements.

    I have been drinking blackstrapp molasses for a year and I can say it helps with pms-ing no more mood swings or tenderness in my breast. And 4 yrs ago I removed fibroids and my doctor told me that they are back but after drinking blackstrapp molasses in hot water maybe twice a month and since I went back to my gyno she said my fibroids haven't grown much in a year, I think the molasses helped some how.

    In my country, they use with beet juice and achiote to eliminate the discomfort and side effects of having fabroids .There are many testimonials of women saying this juice eliminated their fibroids and they use it as soon as they found they had it. I can not confirm this, but when I tried it, it regulated my period, which was longer than normal due to fibroids.

    Molasses is highly TOXIC! I proved it in my body! I used to take a molasses-based liquid supplement and it caused severe pain in my joints… Doctors could not figure out what was the cause but I discovered that after I stopped taking the liquid molasses product the pain subsided and if I recall that after taking it again the pain came back. The reason it's toxic is that it's lifeless charred remains of high combustion by-product. I now try my best to consume mostly raw foods and do quite well on this diet.

    I don't believe blackstrap molasses really helps with an ulcer because years ago I had a stomach ulcer and it actually was from the H pylori bacteria and when you have that you need something really powerful to attack it.. doctors don't tell you how h-pylori can really destroy your health and wreak havoc and also create absorption problems for you which then creates even more problems… one of the things that really helped was black seed oil.. but then I stopped taking it and didn't buy anyone around out of it and I say the bacteria came back.. then I got rid of it by doing medicinal quality food grade edible pure gum Spirits turpentine by Diamond G Forest brand and there is another brand called sacred Purity but I haven't tried that yet… please do not ever ingest turpentine that you buy at a Walmart or a Home Depot or any other hardware store or paint shop as there's Products often lie about how pure it is.
    Those are usually by products from paper mills and have been processed through dangerous petroleum distillates which should never ever go in your mouth.

    I see many of you commenting that you put it in coffee. Be careful, as caffeine actually blocks iron absorption. So if you are using it to increase your iron, it is counterproductive to put it in coffee or tea (black, green, white, oolong). Instead, put it in a non-caffeinated (not decaffeinated) drink, like herbal tea. I love putting it in my ginger tea!

    I have a friend who, when in her mid forties suffered two heart attacks. Her doctor prescribed tablets for her condition. When first I met her she would become exhausted from walking only fifty yards. I suggested that she took crude molasses, one teaspoonful twice daily. She did so, and immediately felt "life" returning to her body. Within five months she was like a twenty-year-old. She gave her doctor a sample of the molasses, which he analyzed. He said it contained every essential for a healthy heart. This lady is now over ninety years old, and still looking forward to her next anniversary.
