Re: Warm Milk and Blackstrap Molasses: Granny Was Right
So What's It Got?

First thing for the sugar wary (and weary) to consider is blackstrap molasses has a low glycemic index. This means the glucose and carbohydrates are metabolized slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilizing blood sugar. The result is less lipids or fats occurring in the blood. And it means that you're chances of becoming diabetic while satisfying your sweet tooth is virtually nil.

Because of its high iron content, many use blackstrap molasses to holistically overcome anemia. Iron is essential to creating red blood cells. In addition to iron, blackstrap molasses contains folate, a natural source for folic acid, along with some other B vitamins, which all combine to form the synergistic mix that promotes red blood cell production.

Then there is magnesium in abundance, along with calcium. Both are densely packaged within this natural food source. Magnesium is important for balancing with calcium for bone production and energy. It is necessary for the smooth function of our nervous system. It is also helpful in maintaining heart health. Insufficient magnesium levels can result in muscle spasms, including the heart muscle, which of course relates to arrhythmia or even heart attacks.

Potassium is another mineral abundant in blackstrap molasses. A deficiency in potassium results in weak muscles and is considered a factor in causing arthritis. Potassium also helps maintain a calmly functioning nervous system. It too is important for the nervous system and heart health. Even the American Heart Association has included unsulphured blackstrap molasses as a food supportive of good heart health.

Manganese, a trace mineral, is very high in content with unsulphured blackstrap molasses. Manganese ions function with a number of enzymes, and are essential to combating unusual free radicals. Like magnesium, manganese also supports cellular absorption of nutrients, and is also beneficial to the nervous system.

There certainly are a lot of nervous system supporting nutrients in this sweetener! Seems that it would be a useful alternative and deterrent to the hyperactivity and ADD in youngsters who consume too much sugar. And unsulphured blackstrap molasses has been used successfully for just that!

This trace mineral also helps synthesize fatty acids and stabilize blood sugar levels. It's true that too much manganese can be toxic. But it takes consistent breathing of manganese dust from industrial sources for that to happen.

Other minerals that appear in abundance are copper and zinc. Zinc has been tagged as the male mineral because it helps support a healthy prostate. Working with zinc, copper helps eliminate the oxidation damage of superoxides.

All the minerals and nutrients of unsulphured blackstrap molasses are in their natural, balanced form to create a bio-accessible, nutritional synergy unavailable from supplements that are not food. Regardless of the amounts of nutrients listed in synthesized supplements, there is more bang for the buck with whole or super food sources.

Re: Warm Milk and Blackstrap Molasses: Granny Was Right
Molasses is also good for restoring your natural hair color. The sugar

leaches the molasses elements out of your body and the molasses restores

it. It takes about 3 months for your natural hair color to start to return

to its natural color. As the white hair or gray hair falls out the

new natural color hair will grow back in. Human hairs have a 3 month

6 month cycle of growth See [link to en.wikipedia.org]



Growing hair on a bald hair is a lot faster. You should see new hair on your

bald head within a month. It faster since new hair is grown. Whereas, it

will take more time, about 3 months, to restore white/gray hair to fall

out and grow into your natural color.



Full return of color depends how white or gray

your hair is and how much molasses your are taking. All of your

body hair should return to your natural color.



Molasses has a very strong taste so you may want to chase it with something

Take one tablespoon of Molasses once a day. Do it twice a day the first

week to give yourself a boost for all the sugar you've been eating.



You can take the molasses in various ways: In a glass of hot

water once a day. You can add a cap full

of vanilla extract to cut the taste; Or, your morning coffee;

Or, or favorite drink





Use unsulphured Molasses only. Molasses is one of natures richest

sources of organic iron and copper, which work together

Molasses is also high in Potassium, Vitamin B-6, Calcium, Iron,

Magnesium, and chromium.



The minerals is molasses is easily digestible in the human body.

Calcium supplement pills are usually made from oyster shells.

How many oyster shells have you eaten?

Thanks, OP. I remember Granny giving me that stuff. Maybe I'll pick up the habit again. Good combination because I just read an article that dairy products actually help you loose weight also. New studies indicate that milk, cheese, etc. consumed daily aid in weight loss.

My Dad used molasses instead of sugar on his cereal every morning. He was convinced of it's nutritional value.

I think I have some in my pantry ... guess I'll go check it out, and mix some with milk before bedtime tonight.

I was reading about blackstrap molasses at Earth Clinic today,
[link to www.earthclinic.com] and I took 2 tablespoons this morning and 2 tablespoons this evening.

I am going to do this for a while and see if it helps with some difficulties I have been having lately, some of the other ladies on Earth Clinic were saying it could help with various female difficulties.

I took apple cider vinegar twice too, when I was taking that regularly before, I felt like I was losing weight because of it.

I take 1 or 2 tbs. every morning. I usually chase it down with a small glass of raw milk. It tastes great all by itself, but it always makes me thirsty for a little bit of milk afterward.

I was reading at Earth Clinic about fibroids, I don't know if I have them but it's possible. Some ladies were saying that blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar (taken separately - together would be awful!) helped normalize things and stop excessive bleeding. I was reading under fibroids but they have a whole section there for molasses. The link I gave is just the link to the site - that site totally rocks, you could spend days and weeks reading there, it is really cool, all people writing in from all over the world about home remedies and what worked and what didn't

I found a formula many years ago called "panther piss" (why it's called that I haven't a clue). You mix equal parts BS molasses with apple cider vinegar and take about 2-3 Tbsp. daily. I've been doing this for years.

Re: Warm Milk and Blackstrap Molasses: Granny Was Right
Warm molasses milk is also a trick i used as a child to help myself get to sleep, i've had severe insomnia all my life, and now that i have been diagnosed with liver problems i am forced to stay away from sleeping medication and resort back to holistic remedies, molasses and milk with a tad of honey always worked, and i'm hoping it still does. Also wonderful to know about the iron content i have anemia so i will stick to molasses whenever possible to substitute.
