I've been taking blackstrap molass in my coffee every day for the last 3 weeks and haven't noticed any changes in reversing gray hair. I'll keep at it until the jar finishes and see how that goes.

It provides me with a lot of energy. After a run, i normally get tired but takign 2 teaspoons with a drink, i don't feel the need for a nap. However, the calories in it makes you very fat if you don't work it off and I noticed that it gives me a lot of phlegm when I take it.

When I heard about molasses taking white hair off I could't believe it. But I though it was worth to try. every morning in an 8 oz glass of water I mix two table spoons of the blackstrap molasses, two table spoon of raw honey, and two table spoon of apple cider and drink it. I have to be honest the taste I don't like very much, but the energy i get from that is tremendous, and not only that but because of the apple cider keeps me away from any type of viruses including flu. This is a great thing I am so glad I learn about it because it been already 5 months since I started taking it and almost all my white hair is gone!!! I will take it for the rest of my life, thanks to my Health book I purchase!!!

Dear Ravi,

I don't think it matters too much when you take it. I have taken those things before during and after meals myself, depending on the day.

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 noticeable, 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!

I've been taking molasses for about 1 month now and can feel the difference. I have more energy and yes, my dark brown hair is getting dark again! The gray is becoming less and less!

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.

I think the idea of black strap molasses to avoid graying hair is a great idea. As I think of it, my father used to eat some molasses every day on his biscuits and he was into his sixties before the gray began to show a bit. When he developed diabetes, he was ordered to stop the molasses, and his hair really became quite white within a year. I have heard that a B vitamin deficiency can cause gray hair. You are right, it cost a packet to color your hair and I don't think the toxic chemicals in most commercial hair dyes are good for your health- quite the contrary. I will buy some molasses soon and see what happens. I only have a small amount of gray, but if molasses will help, then why not. Maybe it will help with other complaints as well.
Thanks Earth Clinic angels!

I do AT LEAST 3 TBS of each per day. Also, I do ABSOLUTELY NO REFINED SUGAR, FLOUR OR OTHER MAN-MADE JUNK! Eat a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, seafood, plain yogurt, organic eggs and flax seed oil. It takes time, and the hair that is already gray WILL NOT recolor. It must be cut off as new, colored hair replaces it. Hope this is helpful. GOOD LUCK!

Using blackstrap molasses, along with brewer's yeast and wheat germ, completely reversed the graying that had took hold of my dark brown hair. You could actually see individual strands that were gray/white turning brown again! My comment is to Wanda and everyone else who wanted to know how much molasses, brewer's yeast and wheat germ to use to reverse gray hair.

For approx 20 years I have been taking Blackstrap Molasses - 1 Tablespoon daily in warm water. Sometimes if I need more energy I will take a second Tablespoon. How did I find out about Blackstrap Molasses? I purchased a book many years ago about the positives on the product. Today I am 55 years and do not take any medications from a doctor. The great reason I loved the book was about gray hair. My hair today has very little gray hair compared to other people my age.

P. S. I do also take other natural products along with Blackstrap - so I would not state that Blackstrap is the only reason for good health.

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.

If you take a tablespoon of Black Strap Molasses after a night of drinks and then one in the morning, the effects don't seem as bad. I'm thinking it's the potassium that is the helper. This molasses has a lot of potassium. My husband tried it and he agreed that he felt much better in the morning. I at first recommended the molasses to my mother who was iron low and had a hard time with iron pills. Her iron was normal a few weeks later at her scheduled doctor apptmt. I read the bottle and noticed the potassium percentage and decided to try it after a cocktail party and was amazed!

Well, it was that time of the month and I had the mother of all headaches. I tried apple cider vinegar in apple juice and it got a little better. 2 hours later I gave up and took a tablespoon of molasses (don't particularly like that stuff). 10 minutes later my headache was completely gone!

Hi I am looking after a man with Parkinsons and he has had problems with night sweats and also hot flashes during the day. A few years ago a lady told me Blackstrap Molasses helped with hot flashes so he tried it. He was amazed as it really worked and he and his wife are getting better sleeps. I have heard that it helps with alot of other illnesses also.

Purchased some blackstrap molasses 5 days ago for the first time and I cant believe after only taking 2 teaspoons for 3 days, I am no longer having hot flashes. I am shocked and will continue to take this for my usual low blood count. I feel so enegetic. I shared information with co-worker and picked her up a bottle too. Lets keep sharing this information so others will know the benefits of BSM. Joyce

My concern about molasses is exactly their high content of iron. There are many health issues associated with iron building up in men and menopause women, damaging their organs. That is because for most people, iron overload has no symptoms. Some people with iron overload may experience symptoms. They may feel tired, have a low sex drive, see changes in skin color, and have pain in their joints. People may think these symptoms are caused by another disease, aging, or lack of sleep.

The only way to know if you have iron overload is to get tested for it. An iron level that continues to be over 1000 mcg/L (micrograms per liter) means you have iron overload. A simple blood test called a serum ferritin test can tell you your iron level. Too often, people with iron overload don't know they have it until they have serious health problems, such as heart failure, diabetes, or liver disease. Learn more about the impact of iron overload.

I also do not trust the soy product. No nation in far east use this tipe of soy product - they use fermented soy (like natto). Soy milk is devastating to be a part of the babies formulas.

Hi Kaio, After learning how much some sugarcane is aerial sprayed nowadays with pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers my concern is the use of non organic molasses for those with Fibromyalgia or Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Your idea of having a simple blood test is excellent. There have been some Drs who even prescribe iron tablets without doing this test.

A few years ago I had a chat with an hematologist regarding the use of Vit C to help with the absorption of iron. Not only to help get enough for those anemic in iron but also for those with levels that are to high and the use of Vit C to help in not absorbing too much. He agreed that Vit C can do both of these, BUT it would be worth getting it checked more often if it is in the high bracket. I have seen firsthand the results of someone who is a hematomacrosis carrier, whose iron levels were at the borderline of needing to be bleed, who had a large serving of Lambs-fry (liver) for their evening meal and also ate some the following morning for breakfast. They took Vit C with each meal and had their blood tested that afternoon. The results were iron in the normal range albeit on the higher end. Also a friend had low iron levels in her pregnancy but would not take iron tablets, she got her test results into the normal range (lower end) by having Vit C or orange juice with her meals.

I am trying to take BSM but finding it very heavy to consume all at once. This evening I took 1 TBS of it, and blended it with some almond milk and a banana. It helped to make a smoothie out of it but it still felt like "too much". Will I get the same benfits if I take less... perhaps a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon? diane

I'd like to clarify some things about molasses. It is indeed one of the healthiest foods on the planet.

Think about it, they harvest a field of sugar cane, remove as much water, fiber, and sugar as possible. What's left? Concentrated organic minerals! If you found such a supplement at the health store it would be very expensive. Yet here it is, dirt cheap and delicious.

Organic minerals have been taken up from the soil by the plants and changed into a form that is easily absorbed and utilized by all living things. The mineral supplements you might find at a drugstore, you may notice, are very heavy. That's because they are made from ground up rock. The minerals are in inorganic form and hard for the body to absorb. Most of it winds up in the toilet.

The iron in drugstore vitamins and processed food is often, literally, iron filings. Nasty and toxic. The organic iron in molasses, on the other hand, will do you no harm. Very good for you.

Arn: Well said. If I might add, I read an article where studies were being done on known toxic lead laden soil. To prove the power of plant metabolism in even toxic metal contaminated soil, tomato plants were grown to maturity and fruited nice tomatoes which tested at almost undetectable levels of lead.

This finding may very well further verify the theory of the energy vibration of plant blood (chlorophyll), what Leonard Harowitz termed Love 528. Not only chlorophyll vibrating at 528 hz, but also the source of life on Earth, the Sun, as well as the very heart of creator God. Again, it appears that the energy vibration of Love 528 may very well catalyze (directly or indirectly) all the miraculous healing powers found in our plant kingdom.

Hi Rick.

I use BSM but it hasn't helped with my gray hair. I guess I don't use enough.. I kind of live my live and eat and take things by intuition. Like if I think that day my body says okay take a teaspoon of BSM then I do... I am mostly vegetarian with fish and probably don't get enough iron and I also take it to get iron to my heart.. Not everyday but when my body thinks its necessary.. Good Luck with your choice..

Black Strap Molasses Side Effects

I have had insomnia for the last 20+ years with increasing severity. 2 nights ago I wrestled with sleep again. My belly felt hard and bloated, giving me racing heart beat, heat and anxiety. I felt constipated. I remembered BSM being a laxative and took 1 Tablespoon without any food and drank 10 oz of water a few minutes afterwards. My bloating went away and eased my belly.

In the morning I took 1 Tbsp. BSM on empty stomach all by itself, than during the day one more Tbsp. and in the evening before bed time 1 Tbsp. BSM all by itself. I woke up this morning, having the best sleep of my life, ever (and I am 72), deep refreshing and vitalizing 10 hour sleep with only 2 trips to the bath room. I could not believe it.
No side effects what so ever so far. I must also say that I have Leaky Gut which makes my body unable to absorb most nutrients. That is probably the reason why I was so mineral deficient. I would give it a try for what ever is ailing you but remember that it has to be ORGANIC, UNSULPHURED Blackstrap Molasses, otherwise you get concentrated doses of Glyphosate and other chemicals into your system.

I will continue using 3 Tbsp. for 3 more days and than slow down to 2 Tbsp./day and eventually to 1 Tbsp. per day. I don't think it will hurt you with that dosage. But try it for yourself and see how your body reacts to it. Good luck to every body.

P.S. Besides of insomnia, I am also trying to heal my leaky gut and rheumatoid arthritis using BSM as a key supplement.
