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.”
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.

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