I started taking molasses; 1 tbsp in warm water in the morning and again in the evening; a few minutes before meals and I think it's cured my constipation. I stumbled upon this site when I was researching ACV. I also advised my friend to take it because she's been anemic all her life and she too is having free bowels. We only started taking it 5-6 days ago but I'll keep you all updated on her anemic condition and on my fibroids. Please remember us in your prayers. Thx. P.S. If anyone has any more information on any other remedies for uterine fibroids please do not hesitate to e-mail me; I'd really appreciate it.

Try black seed oil. It seems to help with imflamation and tumours. Maybe it will work on fibroid tumours.

Will have a feedback soon. So far I have natural bowel movements 2-3 times a day. Energy level much better. Suffer from high blood pressure but it has gone down without medications. Have a checkup the 21st of june let you know what they said and how molasses did to prepare me for the checkup also potassium was low use to take potassium pills let you know what happened at the doctor. Peace namaste.

I am a 69 year old male and I have had difficult or almost impossible experiences in becoming numb for dental work such as fillings. This has been larger problem during the last 20 years. So bad that I unfortunately needed to go home without the dental work ever being accomplished because the injections would not take affect. Please know, that I have a very experienced and super good dentist. Sometimes, after multiple Xylocaine injections and waiting for over an hour, I would unfortunately need to go home without the procedure even being started because I could not get numb! Nonetheless, I would always need to wait an hour or longer before I would finally become at least somewhat numb. I seldom would ever get fully numb to the point of being comfortable.

All of that changed, however. Because of all of the Magnesium, manganese, calcium and iron contained in black molasses, I began consuming about two tablespoons of the black molasses starting three hours prior to my dental appointments.

I mix one teaspoon of molasses into an 10 ounce cup of hot water and drink as in drinking warm tea. I drink a total of four cups of the molasses mix (one teaspoon of molasses per each cup of water) during the three hours prior and then proceed to the dentist. At that point, I have two full tablespoons worth of black molasses in my system.

Then, usually 20-30 minutes after my Xylocaine injections, I become fully numb and experience no pain at all. What a relief! I do not claim any particular knowledge as to why this technique works so well. Perhaps the extra hydration helps and perhaps all of the extra mineral consumption helps to cause the gum tissue to function better? I do not claim to understand the science. And perhaps it is simply my imagination? I suspect t hat it mostly involves the added minerals.

I told my dentist about my process but he had no comment except to say, “if it works that is a good thing”! And so I will always use the black molasses prior to Xylocaine injections by the dentist.

I had tried a lot of things to beat depression, Including: St John wort and different traditional medications. Molasses worked - no side effects. It is just a healthy food to eat. I have about 1- 2 table spoons a day. TO make it easier to eat I made a made a molasses based taffy.

Molasses also helped my depression. 1 TB per day. I always try to "fix" my health problems with natural things. I have tried sooo many things through the years for different health concerns and most of the time I didn't notice any difference. I started the molasses and I believe I felt better the first day. I am happier, more positve, have more energy, I'm motivated to do things. I have hope once again.

When I was a little girl if I had an upset stomach my grandmother would mix up black strap molasses and a small amount of baking soda. She would wait for a while as it puffed up and then would give me a spoonful. It always worked , so I tried it recently and after 45 years it still does.

I have been using the BSM for about a week, and my skin has not been so clear in years. My eczema is almost gone. The taste is really hard to get past though. I found that a smoothie is the best way to mask it. My recipe is:

  • 1 large banana
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1tbsp organic coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of coffee to dissolve BSM and Coconut Oil.
  • 1/4 cup milk, or water.
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, or vanilla extract.
  • Optional 1tsp cayenne pepper.

Blend well. You cannot even taste the Blackstrap anymore. It tastes like a banana muffin.

I use blackstrap molasses in my smoothies, too.

My recipe is: 2 cups unsweetened almond milk, I add 1 scoop of good-quality pea protein powder, 1 small banana, 1 cup of 1/2 caf refrigerated coffee saved from yesterday, 1-2 tablespoons of molasses (or the amount of your choice). Blend it all up in the blender and enjoy. It's yummy!

I use BSM to increase my energy level. I give it to my little one to improve hair growth. She wouldn't take it at first. Said it was nasty(It really is unless you particularly enjoy licorice, anise, etc..) I do like Chai and thus created a new take on the beverage. We take approx. 1 cup 18-10 oz of almond milk (We like the vanilla favored) and mix in 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of ground cloves , and 1 tbsp. of BSM. It really is delicious. I have varied this receipe using sweetened almond milk. Very sweet. If too sweet for your liking add ice or a bit of warm water. Oh, I forgot to mention, I warm up this concoction in the microwave for a few minutes before serving

Better But With Side Effects

black strap molasses and excess body hair

I have been taking bsm for a few months and found it wonderful, look great (or better!) and more energy but have noticed more hair growing on legs and arms... this is quite worrying what should I do a bout it? I could try cutting it down to a trace of a tsp a day and hope that it will still have the effects or twice a week

any comments welcome
regards

That's funny, our modern take on having body hair! Having body hair is natural. My brother & I were anemic as kids & lost most of our natural body hair (although no one connected the two coincidences), so I'm guessing you're getting some cure, which is why you seem to have more body hair now. Shave or whatever if you need, but I hope you can enjoy the way our bodies are meant to be when healthy!

Hi! This is a great website. I just tried the ACV yesterday and noticed an increase in my energy. I'm interested in trying the BSM for constipation. I bought some molasses, but it doesn't say "black strap" on it. Does it have to be black strap molasses, or is all molasses considered black strap molasses? Thanks, and God bless.

EC: Regular molasses is the first or second boiling of cane sugar syrup, while blackstrap is the third boiling of the syrup. Iron levels are said to increase 5% in the 3rd boiling.

I have been taking a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses every a.m. for the last two plus months. my energy level has increased by leaps and bounds. as far as the gray hair goes ??? I haven't really noticed a huge change but maybe with time it will show. I am a 55 year old female from MN. and have a positive feedback with blackstrap molasses.

Black strap molasses. Read the label. Very high in potassium. Potassium is never stored in our bodies. We lose it when urinating, diarhea, perspiration, and cell death. Potassium enters the cell quite readily and raises the ph. Higher ph then increases the perfusion of oxygen accross the cell membrane. Also, potassium aids in nerve transmission and strengthens contractility in heart muscle if potassium is low raising it is helpful. Also, Organic molasses has iron, iron increase hemoglobin production. This also means improved oxygen utilization. So, Molasses may indeed aid with energy, cognition, concentration, and endurance. Hope this helps.

I have diabetes and have been taking blackstrap molasses since Dec 7. It is too soon to say that it has affected by sugar levels., I think it has. What it has done is provided me with so much more energy, I am so grateful to again have energy to do things that I like and even don't like. I was so tired I didn't even wash my dishes on a daily basis, I wash them, I garden, I don't take long daytime naps. My sugar cravings have been reduced, I recommend everyone take some, even just a little a day

Register with mallforafrica.com and you can buy the blackstrap mollasses from walmart or amazon and they will ship to your address. For Apple Cider Vinegar a lot of pharmacies and big super markets sell them.

I have been in severe pain with a pedunculated fibroid for 2 months. I got this post menopause. I found out if you lose alot of weight quickly this can happen. I was exhausted and having restless leg problem also. I took the molasses for one day and actually slept restfully. Woke up and first time no pain. My stomach also softened up and went down quite a bit. The taste is a bit heavy for me but I decided its worth it. I'm going to use my mini ice cube tray and see if I can freeze it and drink it in my water. Thanks to all who posted their stories. God Bless!!

I just wanted to let people know that adding one tbs of BSM to warm milk makes a surprisingly yummy drink, you may just acquire a craving for. I am not a person that usually drinks milk, but this recipe is rather pleasant and it helps get the BSM down. My experience has shown this drink to do wonders for cramps associated with PMS. At the moment I am using this for a terrible inertia that I have been in for months. Hopefully this will raise my energy . Good luck to you all.
