[YEA] 05/07/2010: Kristen from St. Peters, Mo: "Organic BlackStrap Molasses
(2 Tbl's per day - one in coffee, one with EARTH CLINIC'S ICED MOLASSES RECIPE)
37 years old, have been plagued with oily, cloggable skin my entire adult life, antibiotics make me feel sick so I won't take them. Within 2 hours of first tbl spoon I percieved changing skin (flushed, drier) within 2 days (4 Tbls)no new acne and quickly healing. I think I can go without any makeup already! IS AMAZING!!"
[NAY] 03/05/2008: Annie from Melbourne, Australia: "hi all, i have been takin 2tbls of bsm and have just stopped as my skin on my face looked like it was aging and dry i no it has a lot of sugar in it and i was just wonderin if anyone sle had same problem, im a bit dissapointed as i really liked it, would love to hear if anyone else had similar problems, cheers"Replies
03/23/2010: Lulu from Roswell, Ga replies: "Are you using the unsulphured blackstrap? It only has 11 grams of sugar. I would say be mindful of what else you are using in conjuction with BSM. I have no side effects at all. Also remember body chemical is different for everyone. I am sure the benefits differ with individuals"
06/26/2011: Sdl from Calgary, Canada replies: "To the gal who says her skin became drier using blackstrap molasses, have you considered mixing it with coconut oil or coconut milk? I've been using coconut products (the organic extra virgin or virgin unrefined kind) and find my skin is nicely improving and after just 5 days is already better than it has ever been in four decades!! Smooth, nicely toned, etc. Cleared up blackheads on my nose and tightened pores. The list goes on. I will be trying molasses soon and possible Apple Cider Vinegar as well, but one thing at a time. So far, I'm a coconut oil convert for life. ;) Lots of water is a good thing for skin too, I've found. 2-3L a day works wonders."
[YEA] 11/24/2007: Nini from Los Angeles, CA: "Drinking atleast 3 cups of African Red tea, commonly called Rooibos is not only beneficial to your immune system but it also helps your skin stay clear. Also applying blackstrap molasses every night for about an hour after washing your face helps smooth your skin and gives you a glow due to all the vitamins and minerals it contains, and don't forget to take atleast 2 tbspns of it daily to keep regular. I like to put it in my red tea or in some warm almond milk along with some coconut oil, yum yum! Hope this helps all of you."
[YEA] 11/02/2007: Annie from Kingston, Jamaica: "2 Tbsp black strap molasses daily and up my intake of h2o to ten cups Gorgeous skin all over, no acne outburst befor my period and did not have any PMS, the period showed up unannounced. I've only been using the molasses for 3 weeks. Thanks a lot. I found simplicity lasts longer."
[YEA] 06/25/2007: Vickie from Toronto, Canada: "Hello everyone, I hope you're all taking your BSM religiously. I have been taking it for the last 4 months and sometimes I mix it with ACV. I'm happy to announce that my nails and skin are looking very healthy. My nails have not been that bad but I have seen such a great improvement; they're not breaking or chipping like they used to before. They're growing very strongly and there're no white spots on them anymore. I read from the BSM book by Cyril Scott that BSM gets rid of the black spots and that's when I realised that they were gone. People are complimenting me on my skin, even men! I started taking BSM for something else but it seems to be doing a lot more. This stuff really works! V"
[YEA] Michelle from London, UK: "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."
[YEA] 07/10/2007: Nikisha from New Brunswick, NJ: "I was so surprised to hear that blackstrap molasses is actually good for your health. When I was a small child we ate it as a treat with warm biscuits. I used to love it. After I read this I decided to try it on warm rye crisp bread today. It tastes great. And amazingly, a few hours after eating it I noticed that this ugly skin rash I had is completely cleared up and my skin looks great."Replies
[YEA] 03/13/2012: Cat from Tauranga, New Zealand replies: "YEA I thought it was worth mentioning that BSM has virtually eliminated my rosacea on my nose. I had a red (sometimes VERY red) nose for years now but to be honest, I'd never noticed it creeping up on me till someone asked me why my nose was always red!! I have never been so humiliated in my life but it made me very conscious of course and before trying anything natural, went through a stage of using makeup - FAIL - to try and cover redness. About 6 months ago I started using BSM morning and night and noticed my nose had returned to normal skin colour almost immediately!! It has been years since I've been this confident about not using makeup and going out, now the only time I notice it come back (only slightly) is if I drink certain wines which I believe is quite common, but it doesn't happen all the time - only with certain brands.
It never really occured to me that it was the BSM but if I run out and don't take it for a few days, it slowly creeps back but not as severe as before. I'm sure of course this is due to the high content of copper in this brand, it's also reasonably high in sulphur which is great for skin issues!"
03/14/2012: Stonfieldsian from Auckland, New Zealand replies: "Hi, do you take BSM internally or apply topically? And how much?"
03/15/2012: Cat from Papamoa, New Zealand replies: "I have been taking the BSM internally. I'm a firm believer that we heal from the inside - out. One tbsp in the morning and one tbsp before bed."
[YEA] 02/22/2013: Broadbelle from Raleigh, Nc: "I started taking BS molasses about two months ago to alleviate some issues I have had having now for years around restless legs and other sleep problems. Since taking it at bedtime (about two teaspoons) I have slept like a baby every single night. I do not toss and turn. I do not wake up and not be able to go back to sleep. I sleep soundly and peacefully through the night. I have no more restless legs or other sleep problems. Regardless of what is keeping you from sleeping - I highly recommend this non-medical approach to getting good sleep! And good sleep in turn results in better health all the way around!"
11/16/2009: Blessed from Harare, Zimbabwe: "Stomach Pain-
Hi, I bought Crude Black Strap Molasses from health shop. Sales people did not know whether by "Crude" it is the sulphured or unsulphered. Can you tell?
instructions say to use 1 -2 tspn in warm water, it was difficult for me to take in that form, so I am eating direct from tspn. Is that ok?
I have stomach aches which are like ulcer pains but doctor said its Irritable Bowel Syndrome.I experience the pains when I am hungry or I eat apples, lemon , oranges or spicy meals.
I also experience heavy painful bleeding during periods which may be fibroid related. I used to take birth control pills to stop the bleeding but have decided to stop as I am yet to have children, and felt this may interfere with fertility. I am 39
I am taking the molasses to get rid of these ailments.
[YEA] 08/28/2007: P from San Diego, CA: "I don't which is working, but the the blackstrap molasses drink seems to have removed my sugar cravings. I tend to snack less, don't peruse the refrigerator as much (like every 20 min or so) to find something to eat. I used to snack on yoghurt a lot, and that's not happening anymore. I think the nutrients in the BSM are dense enough to keep me balanced and are probably filling my nutritional deficiencies. Also, I've been painting with iodine, I'm sure that's helping. I also started fenugreek two days ago, which I've read also helps with sugar imbalances. Diabetes is in my family, so I'm very happy about getting information from your website. What I thought may have been mostly hormonal imbalances may have been sugar imbalances. I feel so alert these days, I notice tiny details and make the bed much faster and neater - a chore that I was never really good at. :)"Replies
04/17/2010: Sara from Sacramento, Ca, Usa replies: "I would love to start taking Black Strap Molasses, but I am afraid I might gain weight. I am already 50 lb overweight. Did you gain weight or taking BSM helped you to lose weight. I would appreciate if you give me some info."
[YEA] 10/01/2006: Elly from Seattle: "Black Strap Molasses has cured my Blood Sugar Levels. I also wanted to respond to another lady in Seattle, she asked where to buy it. The two best places would be Trader Joe's, or Madison Market, just off Capital Hill."
[YEA] 09/14/2006: Tai from Lakewood, WA: "My mother in law tells me it helps her everyday with her sugar level (she has Diabetes). She feels much better since she has taken molasses. Can anyone tell me where or what store in Seattle, WA I can find this Molasses medicine?"
[YEA] 11/22/2005: Kellee from PA: "I am a sugar addict. I love anything that is sweet. I was told my a chef to utilize black molasses, and it really worked for me. It balanced my iron and allowed me not to have the crave anymore. I have also shared it with a friend and he lost five pounds.... good stuff."
12/17/2010: Mello from West Orange, Nj: "After reading about the harmful effects of artificial sweetners which I use every morning in my cup of coffee I have heard some comments on using Blackstrap Molasses in their hot drinks with pleasant taste and results. Will start using two tblspoon in my coffee and see what it does. Thanks for the tip because I have become very afraid of artifical sweetners and could not figure out what to use because I love my morning coffee."
[YEA] 11/05/2006: Suzay from BC, Canada: "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."
