Organic Blackstrap Molasses- 1 TBSP a day and you get all of this...
A sweetener thatís actually good for you?
Yes, thereís one and it does the body VERY good when you eat it.
Feeling tired, run-down, and lifeless is the WORST! I used to have really low iron and so my energy levels plummeted way too often during the day.
Who knew that Organic Blackstrap Molasses would be my saving grace not only for my iron- deficiency, but also for my thyroid, my hair and nail growth, and over all energy and wellbeing.
This stuff ROCKS! If you have anemia, dysfunctional thyroid, hair loss, lack of energy, or you just want to feel as well and energized as possible- all you need is a tablespoon a day. Itís that easy! Anyone can benefit from this stuff- itís worth the try.
The team at the True Wellness Center recommended this to me. (http://www.truewellnesspa.com)
Blackstrap Molasses is the dark liquid byproduct of the process of refining sugar cane into table sugar. Sugar has hardly any nutritional value because all of the nutrition is in the blackstrap molasses.
Unlike corn syrup, white sugar, and artificial sweeteners that are stripped of all nutritional value, Blackstrap molasses holds its own as one of the only ones that actually gives your body a very healthy boost.
Hereís just a few ways this thick, smooth, black sweetener gives your body heaps of minerals and vitamins, and can potentially help cure some major health issues.
Some major benefits:
- Highest food source of potassium! (1 tablespoon of ORGANIC blackstrap molasses has 720 MG of potassium which helps with high blood pressure and cardio vascular problems.)
- Great source of Calcium- calcium is needed for just about everything in the body, including- strong bones and teeth, the contraction of your heart and other muscles, blood clotting, nerve impulses to and from the brain, and more.
(Two teaspoons of blackstrap molasses will meet 11.8% of your daily needs for calcium.*)
- Chromium- needed for the body to digest sugar.
-Iron for Energy- It can increase your energy by helping to replenish your iron stores. In comparison to red meat, which is a well known source of iron, molasses gives you just as much iron for less calories and itís vegetarian!
(Just 2 teaspoons of blackstrap molasses will sweetly provide you with 13.3% of the daily recommended value for iron.*)
-Minerals: Excellent source of: Copper, Manganese, Potassium, And Magnesium
Blackstrap Molasses is sort of like a Superhero Rescue Remedy for your body.
I take 1-2 tablespoons of this daily and I feel awesome when I do. I even notice the days when I miss my Blackstrap Molasses ritual.
Itís best to take it in between your breakfast, or any meal for that matter. Whenever you remember to take it, donít think twice. The taste may be a bit much at first, a bit bittersweet, but you get used to it pretty quickly.
Buy Organic, (Unsulphured) Blackstrap Molasses from your health food store or grocery store and youíll be all set to go!
Ever wonder why they say ďslow as molasses?Ē I guess youíll have to try some to find out. ;)
