[YEA] After reading some comments regarding Blackstrap Molasses and how it may help ease a menstral cycle, I decided to give it a shot. I have HORRID cramps, particularly near the ovaries, as well as terrible lower backpain, severe muscle cramps in my legs, and the worst fatigue. My periods are short, usually 3 days or less, but nightmare nonetheless. I bought some molasses on the second day of my last mensus and within five or ten minutes of taking my first tablespoon, I felt very relaxed. My stomach cramps didn't go away unfortunately, but the leg cramps disappeared and I was simply in a more relaxed state, mentally and physically. So I was better prepared emotionally to deal with the remaining physical pain. I also noticed that I bled considerably less and as many others have reported, the color was much lighter. By the third day I was barely 'spotting. I have found the best way for me to take the molasses is mixed in with a glass of warm vanilla almond milk. It almost completely covers the taste. I tried with warm cow's milk...it was tolerasble, but tasted much better with the almond milk. Also, I would love to leave my e-mail address for other people, but unfortunately I received a rude e-mail from someone, in regards to a testimony I left about hydrogen peroxide and how it has helped me, calling me a useless idiot. It made me very sad that people actually act this way. My opinion is that if it doesn't work for you, move on quietlty and look for something else. But don't insult people who are simply trying to share valuable information with others who are suffering.
