Fight fatigue! How To Raise Your Iron Levels Naturally With Blackstrap Molasses!
I do not recommend taking synthetic iron supplements they have a tendency to build up in your system. I prefer natural sources of iron. The simplest, cheapest, and safest way I have raised my iron levels is through Blackstrap Molasses. It is essentially the healthy "sludge" left over after the refining of sugarcane, grapes, or sugar beets into sugar.

I do not buy the ones in the regular grocery as they contain about 2-4% iron. You would have to chug the whole bottle. I go to my local Sprouts and I pick up a brand they have I believe it's called Plantation. It has 20% natural occurring Iron. Pretty good I'd say.

It takes horrific to be honest if you take it by the spoonful it is very reminiscent of what I'd imagine motor oil to taste like. I do take it that way if I am in a hurry. It tastes best added to coconut milk and almond milk it actually makes them taste even better as a result it's a wonderful synergistic pleasant mixture.


My personal favorite way to take it is to mix 1-2 tablespoons of Blackstrap Molasses, 1-2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil, a dash of a Plain Creamer, Trader Joes Chai Tea mix, and I fill the mug to the brim with warm water it is one of my favorite drinks. You can also mix it in coffee and it is not very noticeable.


I take it everyday 1-4 times daily.

I feel less fatigued. It does help. I do other health experiments daily but this one I make sure to include every day no matter what.

There is another product that contains a very rich iron content and numerous other minerals and amino acids...
hemp seed oil...one of the best going around...if not the best.

Not sure if it's available over there but the best one is grown in queensland australia.

I keep reading good things about hemp seed! I really want to try it! Hopefully they have it here in a local health food store. Thank you I'm going to try that one as soon as i can! hf

Be careful not to take too much as iron can be toxic if you are getting too much and your body is not properly metabolizing it. I unfortunately have the condition Hemochromotosis and have to limit my intake of iron.

[link to www.ansci.cornell.edu]
[link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

There are a few things you can do to help your body better absorb iron if you are low. You would kind of just do the opposite of what I do to keep my iron levels low.

There are two types of iron, hemi and non-hemi. Hemi-iron which is the type of iron in meats is very easily absorbed as to where the non-hemi iron found in vegetables is much harder for our bodies to absorb. Vitamin C actually improves the absorption of non-hemi iron so if you need iron drinking some OJ with a salad or even taking vitamin C supplements will help to improve your iron levels by increasing the amount you absorb.

It also works in the reverse. There are things you can do that will decrease the amount of iron you absorb from a meal like calcium and tannins. So if you need iron you would want to avoid drinking dairy or tea products with a meal.

Here is a really helpful link with some information about iron and iron absorption. It has information for people who have both too much iron as well as too little iron.

Thank you!! That is a very well informed post with great info. That's true vitamin C does help you absorb other vitamins. I am transitioning from having been vegetarian for many years so iron has always been an issue for me. I wind up with bruises that take months to heal and I have overwhelming fatigue worst of all was when they tried to draw blood and they had to stick me 6-7 times ouch! they even tried the veins in my hands. I've been trying to ditch dairy lately I'm not fond of milk but I love cheese. There is always that one food you can't escape and there is always a drawback somewhere in each persons diet.

No problem! I hate my iron being high but the symptoms of anemia are terrible too. People with high iron have that overwhelming fatigue so I know exactly what you are going through. It is pretty discouraging to feel exhausted all of the time.

I pulled out a book that I have on what foods contain the most iron. Sure enough molasses is number one on that list as containing the most iron. Liver is second on the list.

The website [link to www.irondisorders.org] may be able to give you some great information about how to get your levels in the healthy range and keep them there. It even gives information on the absorption rate of white vs. wheats when it comes to grains. Believe it or not wheats are better for you but you will absorb less iron from a wheat grain. Honestly, I don't know what I would have done without that website when I was diagnosed with being overloaded with iron. There is so much more to iron than I ever imagined.

Another thing that might help in addition to the vitamin C is breakfast cereal (if you like it of course). There are a several cereals that have 100% of the daily intake and so many that have 50-75%. I love cereal but I only get it on special occasions because of the iron content :) Wheat and oat bran cereals are usually fortified with iron. There are also breads out there that have been fortified and include more iron if you are a bread eater.

There is also an iron "support" type group via email where you can talk with others who have iron imbalance to get advice or ideas. That information is at this link [link to www.irondisorders.org]

Sorry for the long post :) I'd be happy to help with any more information if I can so you can hopefully increase your levels. I'd happily give you some of mine if I could :)

That unfortunately is my life summed up in a sentence!

Thank you again for all that great info! Fatigue is one of the worst things to have to deal with my life and productivity have been severely affected. I hope we can both get ourselves balanced!

Please check out this article and site. It is honestly the best site I have found out about besides this one lol
