Molasses: How long does this stuff take to work?? I've been doing 2 Tablespoons a day in the coffee for 4 months now and nothing. That one lady said she saw results in 3 months. I am also taking GNC B150, B12 1000mcg, and Apple cider complete vitamins for the last month. And nothing seems to be working. Im in my early 30s and have been struggling for years with this grey hair. Is it genetic?? I see old people who drink and smoke like trailor trash and they have no grey! Doesn't seem right. I eat right and exercise and Im the suffering from this problem. And whats that about HGH?? Thats like a illegal drug that bodybuilders take. And Peroxide? Thats just basiclly bleaching your hair!?! Im just growing tired of covering something so early in life. There has to be something that works!?!?

I was just browsing through some of the information posted and wanted to add my "5 cents".
I should mention, if you do use blackstrap molasses to "blacken your hair" be careful that you do not develop a vitamin B3 deficiency, WHICH IS known as pellagra, which apparently is important for the diet for those with Lupus.
For the man who treated Lupus on a gluten free diet...take head, that this goes right back to a probable involvement of strep as this is the main bacteria that feeds on B-vitamins, as it is essential for them to live. This is especially true if you eat corn products because corn alone can induce pellagra if the corn has not been fortified(i.e.canned corn or corn on the cob, corn chips, or unfortunately for all its good intentions..organic corn producers that do not fortify their processed foods. If you have Lupus and you're going luten free and eating unfortified corn, you're inching closer to pellagra.This one instance where eating a wholesome food (corn) will give you disease (pellagra) if eaten in large quantities and it is not fortified.

About the blackstrap molasses and gray hair...it works. I tried if before ever knowing it could turn gray hair black..it was just something I noticed it did while taking it for another reason. Since then i have found out that early graying (is this you?) is linked to thyroid disease. just google "one gray hair and thyroid".
Also, one of Ted's posting about the pineal gland is one of the most informative things posted on this site. Calcification of your pineal gland can keep you struggling to recover from many illness. The melatonin from the pineal produced at the RIGHT time (one peak at night) is essential.
Has anyone heard of this cure all remedy...the urine cure. Has anyone tried it? Its tried overseas, one ounce daily i think? It sounds disgusting, but apparently has cured people from many illnesses, including terrible cases of tuberculosis, which of course is caused by a mycobacterium. Just Google mycobacterium, urine, and cure.
Also, for Lupus people, they tend to be sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies. I have personally found that simply not putting a cell phone or a cordless telephone up to my head greatly improved my autoimmune symptoms than just with diet alone. It turns out, electromagnetic frequencies also block melatonin synthesis.
Finally, if you have lupus and Raynaud's and live somewhere where it is cold, the Raynaud's is closely linked to low thyroid function on exposure to cold weather. Raynaud's has been cured by treated the thyroid. City tapwater has caused most of the lupus symptoms for me...its the pipes and the water that flows through them.

Thank you so very much for the terrific site -- awesome information! I have been following the remedy suggested for reversing gray hair for only the last four weeks and cannot believe it, but see dark hair growing in replacing the gray! What I've been doing each day is taking one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses on a spoon, one tablespoon of brewer's yeast mixed with orange juice, and one large tablespoon or wheat germ mixed with a small amount of plain yogurt along with a 1/2 teaspoon of sodium ascorbate mixed in orange juice and one capsule of chelated manganese. I feel extremely strong and healthy also. Will provide further updates!

After reading here about black strap molasses and gray hair, I have been taking 1-2 tablespoons in my coffee each morning for a little over three months. I tried it in hot water and it was horrible. In coffee, it taste like a latte, and after getting used to it, I look forward to it every day. The first two months I noticed a difference, but wondered if it was my imagination or wishful thinking. Now at three months, I would say the gray is 70% gone, and my stylist is absolutely amazed. The white patch above my forehead is gone completely. I'm 40 yrs old, and was starting to gray rapidly, it was costing a fortune to keep covered. The first 2 months, my hair grew so fast, that the gray was showing quicker, but I'm glad that I stuck with it, the little bit I have left is hardly noticable, and I am hoping that in time, it will all be gone. I am so thankful that I read about this on your site, and will be taking it for the rest of my life. I have also noticed an increase in energy, and believe it to be the molasses also. Thank you!

2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses cured gray hair. ENERGY BOOST. It took several months, but my gray hair along my hairline has begun to turn brown! IT WORKS! It's also a great energy boost. I'm a 40 year old female who weighs 120, and I leap out of bed. No aches; no pain. I have no health complaints because I use the following on a daily basis: blackstrap molasses, apple cider vinegar, yerba mate tea, cayenne pepper, cod liver oil, and MUCH PRAYER.

Hi. Not sure if I the odd ball on the planet, but, the molasses concoction to reverse grey hair DOES NOT WORK. I have faithfully been taking 2 TBS spoons daily since july 4th.....still have gray hair at the roots

Have just finished reading an old book on molasses and it contains not only most minerals our body needs but also all Vit.B complex properties and it is B2 to stop graying hair. Extremely beneficial for good health.

I have been coloring my gray hair for over 20 years. Decided to stop and try something natural. I went with the 1 Tb. molasses and 1 Tb. brewers yeast twice a day. Started about a month ago and not much change. I read that you need copper and my brewers yeast did not have copper in it. I changed to a different brand that had copper and now I am seeing more and more brown hair. I never would have believed it if I wasn't seeing if for myself. I am 52 years old and started getting some gray in my hair while still in my early 20s.

I am a bit confused over the apple cider vinegar and baking soda. At the moment i am taking blackstrap molasses and brewers yeast to reverse grey hair , it seems to be working very well so far, but i also take acv. I have been told that baking soda robs the body of b-vitamins and so if i do put this in my acv, would it take away all the b vitamins i am taking from brewers yeast and bsm? I would be gratefull if anyone can answer this one for me as i would like to add baking soda to my acv but will hold off for now untill i get some advice.

Took organic unsulphered BSM for months and did not notice any difference, in fact, more gray hairs than ever seemed to be coming in. Purchased some chlorophyll just to try out, and my gray hairs are all but gone. And now my hair is a deep, shiny chocolate brown, healthier than it ever was before. I take one to two tablespoons a day. I believe it is the copper that is helping me. I use Nature's Way Chlorofresh, in case anyone is interested. Have been taking this for about two months. This may not work for everyone, but it sure has for me.

I am a 70 year old grand and great grand mother with absolutely not a single grey hair ! My secret... Coconut oil which I had applied daily in my youth on my hair (though I haven't used it for sometime now ). My son's head is almost entirely grey . He doesn't listen... Try it .It's cheap because I never used the expensive organic or extra virgin variety . It beats the expensive supplements! I've recommended to many very happy friends.
