Testimonies about Blackstrap Molasses:

problem with my left ankle giving way and also suffered badly from carpal syndrome. i was not sure if the molasses would work but i read the comments here and thought i would give it a go. I have been taking 3 tsp regularly since 3 weeks ago. I am amazed — it has cured my ankle which i no longer have to strap up. Also my carpal syndrome was incredibly painful especially at night. Thankfully i don’t have pain anymore. Finally i was astonished to notice that i had actually lost 10 lbs in weight. i think it has cured my sugar craving as i don’t feel as hungry anymore. I have been telling my family and friends to take it as it’s like a miracle cure for many things. Also my skin is fresh looking, nails are stronger and my hair is shinier.”

During my 4 day stay at the hospital for hip surgery, I was given 2 potassium pills as my potassium was very low. When i arrived home, i gave blackstrap molasses a try. Never dreaming that in less than a week my ankles and hands didn’t swell anymore, and the heart flutters that i had for many years were gone. Oh , I almost forgot, I now have fingernails. I’m telling everyone i meet about my miracle cure.”

i wanted to take blackstrap molasses and after trying a teaspoon of it in my morning coffee had very bad side effects that included high blood sugar, diaherrea, cramps and dizziness. so i stopped after 2 days. however that month when my period came i noticed that i had no cramping or clots at all. so i realized that the molasses (even taken that 2 times with the bad side effects) had a good effect on my period. so i tried taking it again with similar side effects and had to stop.

some people cannot tolerate Molasses on a empty stomach. Because It has Iron in it which if you will read your suppose to take with food. I get nausea and dizzy & a lot of other symptoms when I eat Iron on empty stomach. Also another reason is there is a lot of sugar in Molasses. So When you don’t eat and you take the molasses it causes your blood sugar to spike very quickly. And this can cause dizziness too, and a feeling of not feeling very well. Just make sure you take it with food (protein) and you won’t have all these symptoms.

been taking bsm now for slightly over two weeks now and it has surely worked great. I started taking it for my hair which had started turning gray around ten years back when i was about 29yrs old. While searching for remedies I landed on this site and decided to give it a trial. I have not seen results on my gray hair since it is only about two weeks now but a lot of other benefits already. My chronic fatigue is now completely gone. I was ever tired morning or evening with my lower back feeling like cut in two with alot of tension. My chest also had occasional sharp pains. I had seen  doctors about it and after several analgesic trial i gave up. All these are fully gone. My wife that had acne is also taking it and says is working well for her.I also give my children one tsp twice daily daily my though with no health issues and they love it.

I’ve been taking a tablespoon of BSM daily for Heart Palpitations (which worked by the way). When cutting my nails yesterday, I noticed that the white, half moons at the base of my nails (I’ve forgotten the name for these) reduced in size by half within one week! I’m completely amazed! I heard these were due to mineral deficiency but I’d been taking supplements and had just given up.

It cured my daily nose bleed. just a tablespoon in cup of hot water daily for a while a few years back. And now I’m wondering for better circulation of blood in feet & up legs.”

there is a cure for restless leg syndrome, and it comes in the form of BLACK STRAP MOLASSES. While using BSM for I discovered that my restless leg syndrome stopped completely, as long as I use it daily. I have suffered for years with this condition, family members, my dad , brother and aunt have it so hereditary I am sure and from what I read there are plenty of pills doctors will prescribe for you, but for me natural is the only way to go. I take 1 tablespoon a day of BSM, I use it to manage my female issues and PMS, and heavy bleeding, that now is cut in half, and the happy side affect to that regimen was the cure for my restless leg syndrome, which caused so much pain, and movement just to fall asleep.

I went to the health food store to ask about what I could give my 15 month-old son for constipation. They suggested 1-2 tsp. of blackstrap molasses in his bottle. I bought the bottle, came home, came to this web site and discovered all different things this stuff is good for. I am 8 months pregnant. I was having a lot of trouble sleeping and developing symptoms of restless leg syndrome (common in pregnancy). I decided to give it a shot. Long story short, my son is pooping like a champ and I started sleeping through the night without any jerking limbs ON THE FIRST DAY! I ran out for one day, and I had a horrible night sleep.

Blackstrap Molasses works for me! After the first fortnight of drinking a cup each morning with the juice of half a lemon, my skin felt really soft and had lost its dryness and my nails are growing stronger and more uniform. This is in addition to having a lot more energy, I have also managed to stop smoking and not experience the side effect of constipation. This remedy is the cheapest but most effective way of taking varied supplementary vitamins.”

Black Strap Molasses has cured my Blood Sugar Levels.

I used to get extremely painful toothaches. I remembered my mom telling me once about Blackstrap Molasses being full of nutrients (calcium and magnesium) in large amounts in general. So I thought I’d try it the next time my tooth ache occurred, and within half an hour, my tooth ache was completely gone. When my young daughters had growing pains, I decided to also try this on them: (1 tbsp) followed by any liquid (water , milk, juice, just to wash it down). Her growing pain had stopped. As I had figured these tooth problems and shin aches may have been from a calcium/magnesium deficiency. The pain had left her in under half an hour. I believe from my own research that if the body does not get enough calcium it will leach it from other areas..thus the pain.”

ULCERATIVE COLITIS

I would like to tell you for 7 years we have been trying to find a cure for our daughter Natalie with chronic ulcerative colitis, she was just about to have her colon removed when a friend told us about black strap molasses. Within a week of taking 1 teaspoon daily she has been in complete remission and said she has never felt better

am so grateful. I have been taking it too and have found a big improvement in my well being and nervous system.

I have achieved a degree of remission so far with the black strap molasses, and bromelain.

blackstrap molasses. It can be sulphured or unsulphured. The blackstrap designation does not have anything to do with whether it is sulphured or not. Blackstrap just means that it is from the third boiling which means it has more iron. They sulphur molasses if it is being made from young green sugar cane (sulphur is used as a preservative). No sulphuring is needed if they use mature sugar cane, so it is labeled unsulphured. An example of unsulphured blackstrap molasses is Brer Rabbit molasses with the purple label. For complete molasses/suphur explanation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molasses

Sulfur is an antibiotic. Can be used to counter infections.

  2. Hi Marianne,
    A good post … I had forgotten all about molasses.
    I used to know this … but it had slipped my consciousness until now.
    After the feast I will add it to my daily intakes.
    Thankx

  3. You may find this also interesting Copper jewelry.
    a “Fountain of Youth” for its ability to improve the elastic fiber in skin, increase skin flexibility, and act as an anti-wrinkle treatment. It has even been said to be able to return gray hair back to its natural color.

  4. Molasses reminds me of something. Thinking it about it, I do not like the smell of molasses. Though, I was using it for the make of gingerbread man I baked yesterday :) Funny…isn’t it…?

  5. I LOVE the taste of molasses but I have not eaten any in years. Too many calories and I try very hard to keep my weight normal. When I was a kid we always had quart jars of molasses on hand. I would mix real butter with it, have a piece of toast, oh my goodness it is so good.

    As to the healthy aspects, that may be true. Honey has certain good qualities. But with both I’m not sure they outweigh the calorie intake.

  6. Who cares about molasses??
    We have a saying ‘slow as molasses in January.’
    It seems to fit quite nicely here … since everyone prefers to talk about what matters little
    instead of what should be told.

    ‘Let the heathen be wakened’
    Let the heathen be wakened!
    I AM (REALLY) I AM
    The Lord is near. I Am the One Before you.

    Joel

    Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness [is] great
    Joe 3:14
     
    Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD [is] near in the valley of decision.

    • I might be a little thick, but it seems to me that instead of contributing practical and useful information, you choose to imply that ill health is a punishment for not believing strongly enough.

      Kindly remove your head from your posterior. Lead by example and keep your self serving platitudes to yourself..

    • Faith has nothing to do with what you put in your body or remaining healthy…at all..period…go troll somewhere else….

  7. Our health is very important to God; II Thess. 5:23 says that God desires us to be “kept blameless (whole) body, soul and spirit till the end..” (Cindy’s paraphrase) III John 2 – “Beloved I WISH ABOVE ALL THINGS that you may be IN HEALTH and prosper, as your soul prospers.’ We need health to convey our inner man around on this earth, and for strength for spiritual warfare and ministry in general.

    This molasses stuff intrigues me, so I’m going to start using this daily and see what happens (as I type, I’m enjoying a piece of toast w it!). Sometimes, the oldest remedies are the best.

  8. Hey there!
    As a trade qualified baker, I was taught that molasses and brown sugar in comparison to white sugars do not contain any more health benefits, now you have me wondering – at the time I thought that the lecturer was wrong and somehow hoped that the less refined sugars had benefits as I think they taste wonderful.
    I’ll just keep on enjoying the less refined sugars anyway, but I’ll keep the possibilities of these health suggestions in mind.
    Thanks for the article,

    Simon

  9. Have any of you tried prqying for your ailments combined with whatever your taking? Its just a thought and we are all unique, all differnt, what works for some does not work for others. Perhaps we should all pray for guideance about what we should adn should not be eating?

  10. Very true!!! I always do that with everything!!!!!!! Its always good to follow the prompting and be in tune to the voice of God!!!!! “relationship”

  11. OK.. I’ve been taking 1 tablespoon of molasses – twice a day – since I read this last week, just to see if it did anything. And wow, the first night: NO restless leg syndrome – it works!! (It worked on all but one of the days I’ve taken it) I think it’s helping with regularity; and in other, more subtle ways too so I’m continuing. But I’m having to watch my carbs a bit more, as it adds 15 grams per tablespoon.

    And yes, I pray ALL THE TIME for God to not only heal me, but give me wisdom on what to eat and take. It seems He gives me more helpful clues all the time.

    • hi cindy

      awesome. Glad the molasses worked. I had been putting honey and cinnamon in my morning coffee, so I thought the molasses was too much.

      but what I can do is take it another time of the day.

      you are right about the sugar. that much will kill the appetite, and so maybe I can lose a few pounds. :)

  12. guess its worth a try the molasses i mean ,an yes our body is our temple an we should keep it as healthy as we can!!

  13. Im starting tonight on the BSM and I will let you all know how it goes for me so stay in tune

  14. Since I had a very extensive and multiple thromboses over a year ago I have been unable to reduce the swelling in my lower limbs from my upper thigh down. This thrombosis occurred in the main vein feeding up from my legs. Luckily from previous surgery I have a vena carve filter which has never been removed. This became quite blocked but prevented the clots reaching my heart. Years of international air travel have left me very susceptible to DVT’s.
    The swelling some days is so extreme I cannot bend my knees and doctors have advised me that a cure is unlikely. I have to spend at least half the day with my legs completely elevated. If I use compression bandages on my legs they develop large ulcers and so I have had to stop using them. One miserable side effect has been the constant weeping through the skin of my legs of water. Mobility has become severely restricted due to the lack of flexibility in my knees due to the swelling.
    I came across articles on black strap molasses and decided to give this a try as all else has
    Within a week of taking a table spoon twice a day I can see a very definite improvement in my legs. The weep holes which constantly open up in my legs have finally closed up completely. The swelling is way down and I am feeling a lot better mentally and physically. I have also started to notice an improvement in the feeling in my legs which have had no feeling at all since this all happened.
    I am also drinking che and ginger tea which is also indicated for poor circulation and the ginger negates any nauseous effect of the iron in the molasses.
    For me this is an absolute miracle and I am very grateful to you for your website and the comments on there. I will keep you posted as to further improvements.

    Kindest regards,

    Allan

    • dear Allan

      It is so good to hear of these stories. When modern medicine fails us, there seems to be always something in nature that God put there to help. After reading about the painful condition you have, I was very concerned as I read it. But when I saw that your condition seemed to be improving, I felt a rejoicing inside for you.

      What caused the thrombosis to begin with? extensive sitting? If you take one aspirin a day, it will help “thin” your blood, and make it a little less susceptible to clotting. It will also help slowly dissolve any clots that are trying to form, or are already there.

      Also, make sure you have potassium in your diet. Avoid foods with lots of salt (pizza, cheese, many specialty breads like bagels, etc). A banana a day can help. Also if you add powdered cinnamon and honey to your tea or beverage it helps reduce inflammation.

      Anti-inflammatory foods such as green leafy ones like collards can help a lot also. My legs tend to swell, and when I stay on a diet with fresh green collards daily My legs are much better.

      yes, I would be very interesting in continuing to hear how you are doing. I would like to see you free of pain and this affliction.

  15. Hi Marianne,

    The DVT’s were caused by extensive flying over many years as part of my occupation. I used to spend three weeks out of four flying internationally. Also 6 years ago I had a synovial cyst which grew inside my spinal column at L4 L5 and went undetected for two years. By the time it was found it had squeezed my nerves in the spinal column down to 20% and done extensive damage. I lost most of the feeling in my legs and feet and doctors in the USA had said it was due to arthritis which was not correct. It was operated on twice to remove it and later I had rod and pins inserted as I now have degenerative disc disease. Up until 55 I was extremely fit and healthy so this all came as quite a shock.
    I have been on wafarin for the last six years on and off and now permanently. My INR is checked regularly and kept at about 2.6 to 3. I eat plenty of greens and other healthy foods.
    Thankfully I am now able to reduce my morphine and only take it as and when needed. Its is all a matter of pain management. Basically people don’t realise what a blow it is when you have your health fail you so extensively but you need to remain positive about it and not let it get the better of you. Spending most of my time in a wheelchair is the real killer especially when you have always been so active. So many simple daily chores become so complex and frustrating it can drive you to despair if you are not careful.
    So now you have the full story and if I can help other people in any way please contact me and I will reply accordingly.

    God Bless,

    Allan

    • Allan,

      Try potassium iodide as soon as possible. It will give you energy and PAIN relief. I take 3 – 4 tablets twice per day and the energy is incredible. But, even more incredible, was the relief of pain from my body. No more unexplained pain in my leg muscles or joints. I still can’t believe it. My wife is thrilled as well. I am 57yrs old but feel 40 yrs old again!!!!

  16. hi, are u living in dubai? from where can I get blackstrap molasses in dubai? plz mail me if u know. my id is relish2marvel@gmail.com. will appreciate pain taken to mail me.

    thanx

  17. This is for Allan Butler, Hi,

    In 2001/2 I had a benign tumor in my spinal column between Th12 and L1/2 which went undetected for a year and a half – at first the doctors diagnosed it as peripheral neuropathy as I was falling down so often. An earlier xray of L3-7 taken by my family doctor showed nothing. And though the tumor had grown to 5.5 x 6 cm, I was able to walk (albeit with a cane) the day after the operation, praise God!

    Since then, I suffered a stroke (right side) in 2009 and am in the process of total recuperation. Meanwhile, I thank God daily as He is using me to evangelize to many Muslim drivers of Arabic origin, disenchanted Catholics, and others, all of whom accept a New Testament in either Arabic, English, French, Spanish – yes, even Chinese or Korean. It’s all about Yeshua haMaschiach (Jesus Christ), Savior of all mankind.

    Meanwhile, I’m just enjoying a cup of honey and cinnamon tea – excellent substitute for black tea, sugar and milk. A friend recently told me that during the Wars, honey was used for any skin infections. Next, I’m going to try unsulphured black strap molasses! Thank you, Marianne.

  18. have a bad anal fissure,will sulphur help it as ive read,if so how do you apply to fissue=re?

    • dear sall

      Is it infected or inflamed?

      If it is infected use bacitracin.

      If it is inflamed, get some Hydrocort AC from your doctor, unless the pharmacist can direct you to an “over the counter” equivalent.

      I am not sure of the amount of sulfur in the molasses, but if you are desperate, you can try it. Molasses is a liquid, so you would have to apply it directly to the site. I would not use the bottle of molasses for anything else after that, since it might be contaminated from use. Mark the bottle as “so not eat or consume.” Since also it is a liquid, it will not “stick” long, and you would have to keep re-applying it.

      the other suggestions I gave you are cremes, and / or suppositories. If you use the suppository, lie down for awhile to keep the medication in place longer.

  19. Hi there,

    I was just wondering if it’s safe for a Diabetic person to take Blackstrapp Molasses? Thanks in advance! I love this site. =)

    • hi Francesca

      Blackstrap Molasses and Diabetes

      People with diabetes wishing to include blakcstrap molasses in their diet need to take into account the carbohydrates it provides.

      The carbohydrates intake should stay within 45g to 60 g per meal, as recommended by the American Diabetes Association, to prevent blood sugar levels from raising above target.

      Adding carbohydrates from blackstrap molasses simply means cutting back on other carbohydrates eaten at the same meal to maintain a consistent carbohydrate intake. In other words, adding 1 tbsp. of blackstrap molasses, 15g worth of carbohydrates, leaves only 30g to 45 g for carbohydrates for other foods at that meal

  20. Thank you so much for your answer, Marianne. This site has given me so much hope.

    God bless you.

  21. i am going to try molasses for my restless leg syndrome but i don’t know how many tea spoons a day i should take, if someone can help me by sending me the answer to my email address below i would really appreciate it, thank you
    viviane

    • hi viviane

      I am not sure of the dose. You may have to look it up. I would just start out with one tablespoon and see how that goes.

      I found this:
      http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/restless_legs.html

      Calcium, magnesium, and potassium all have an effect on muscle contraction and relaxation. In addition, they help nerve transmission. Experts say that you can help calm your legs and get some rest by making sure that you’re getting enough of all three minerals. Taking a daily dose of between 800 and 1,000 milligrams of calcium, 300 milligrams of potassium, and 500 milligrams of magnesium at bedtime may help reduce RLS symptoms.

      compare to the bottle ingredients and do the math.

  22. Is black strap molassess useful for gray hair? Where should i get black strap molassess?

  23. I’ve been having heart palpitation issues for a few years now. Last year the Lord reminded me of black strap molasses and when I take it the palpitations stop and my heart feels stronger. Praise God for blackstrap molasses! He is good to His children. : )

    Molasses IS a very nutritious thing and not as unhealthy as refined white sugar. It contains iron, copper, potassium, magnesium and manganese. I would pay attention to how your body is feeling as you can take too much of the stuff and anything that contains iron one should be a bit cautious. A good thing to add to your molasses is warm water and a squeeze of lemon or take a vitamin C with it. Vitamin C helps the body absorb the iron better. And don’t take the molasses with calcium as calcium blocks iron absorption. FYI

  24. Yes it does! Good stuff!
