Blackstrap Molasses

Posted on April 6, 2006

I’ve recently been reading about the health benefits of blackstrap molasses and am pretty intrigued. Not only is it a great source of iron and calcium, but it’s also a source of potassium, magnesium, copper, and manganese. Many people claim to have reversed their gray hair with it. I bet this is at least partly due to the copper content, as copper deficiency can lead to prematurely gray hair.

I found a page of blackstrap molasses testimonials at At first I thought that site was selling molasses because the testimonials were so amazing – people claim the molasses cured cancer, acne, arthritis, and everything in between. However, the site actually looks pretty useful – it allows readers to comment on natural remedies.

I’m going to buy some today and will report back. I’m not sure how I’m going to eat it – it looks like mixing it in water is the most popular method. Does anyone who’s tried it have any suggestions?

2013 update: Since writing this article seven years ago, I’ve been using Plantation Organic Blackstrap Molasses with great results.

I get organic blackstrap molasses at Whole Foods and put it in my coffee every morning. I believe it is helping my baldness.
