Blackstrap Molasses – Benefits

I would like to highlight a few specific benefits in today’s blog, of Organic BlackStrap Molasses.

HERE ARE A FEW BENEFITS YOU CAN GAIN IN TAKING BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES ON A REGUALR BASIS.  I ADD IT TO MY SMOOTHIES, OATMEAL, OR IN COFFEE!

 

ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION

Blackstrap molasses is an excellent source of the antioxidant manganese, providing about 27.5% the DV per tablespoon. Manganese helps the body fight free radical damage to cells and DNA.

ENERGY

Blackstrap molasses can offer a temporary energy boost by providing carbohydrates that are quickly converted into energy in the body as it helps replenish the body’s storage of iron. Iron plays a vital role in energy production, transporting oxygen in the blood.  It also contains B6 which gives our bodies a natural energy boost!

BONE HEALTH

Blackstrap molasses provides many of the daily nutrients needed to help keep the bones healthy and strong, including iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and copper. Maintaining a recommended daily allowance of these minerals can greatly reduce the risk of osteoporosis and other diseases of the bone.

HEART HEALTH

Blackstrap molasses provides many of the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain good heart health and reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and cardiovascular disease.

These include manganese, magnesium, copper, calcium, potassium and vitamin B6. Together, these nutrients aid in reducing blood pressure, preventing strokes and assist in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.

COLON HEALTH

Blackstrap molasses is a very good source of calcium, which helps cleanse the colon of toxins. Calcium is often associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer.

HIGH IN IRON

Just one tablespoon of blackstrap molasses provides nearly 20% of the DV of iron. Iron deficiency is associated with many different conditions, including dizziness, fatigue, hair loss, irritability and anemia. Iron is particularly important for women during menstruation.

Iron plays a critical role in blood and cell function and is essential to energy production. It also helps the body fight off infections, supports brain and muscle function and help improves immunity.

GOOD SOURCE OF POTASSIUM

One tablespoon of blackstrap molasses provides about 14.5% the DV of potassium. Potassium is essential to maintaining good cardiovascular health and improving bone density.

Potassium can help keep blood pressure low, supports proper carbohydrate metabolism and can help reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and osteoporosis. Potassium deficiency is also associated with an increased risk of arthritis.

NATURAL SOURCE OF CALCIUM

Calcium is not only essential to maintaining healthy bones and teeth, but plays a vital role in colon health, heart health, blood clotting, brain nerve activity and muscle function. One tablespoon will provide over 17% the DV of calcium.

GOOD SOURCE OF SELENUIM

Blackstrap molasses is a good source of selenium, providing about 5% of the DV per tablespoon. Selenium plays a key role in thyroid function, antioxidant protection, cancer prevention, cardiovascular health and inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

GOOD SOURCE OF VITAMIN B6

One tablespoon of blackstrap molasses provides 7.5% the DV of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is needed for the immunity, the nervous system, cell formation, blood health and energy production. It is also believed to have anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties.

ALTERNATIVE SWEETNER

Blackstrap molasses can sweeten food without many of the negative side effects of regular sugar and artificial sweeteners. It is very low on the glycemic index and appears to be a healthier option for diabetic and pre-diabetic people, requiring very little insulin production and altering blood sugar levels far less than regular cane sugar.

LOW CALERIES

Blackstrap molasses provides many vitamins and minerals and boosts energy while containing zero fat and very few calories. This makes it a healthy alternative to sugar and a good addition to an active, low fat weight loss program.

DIGESTIVE ISSUES

Anecdotal evidence suggests that blackstrap molasses may help with stomach and digestive problems. Testimonials claim that it can help to soothe stomach aches, help to cure stomach ulcers and may be useful in treating irritable bowel and other digestive conditions, including constipation and diarrhea.

SKIN HEALTH

Testimonials claim that blackstrap molasses is great for skin health and may help to cure eczema, psoriasis, acne and other skin conditions. Blackstrap molasses contains powerful antioxidants, which are believed to contribute to good skin health and lowers the risk of lines, wrinkles and other skin conditions associated with premature aging.
