How to Stay Young and Energetic

Upon reading an article about the health benefits of Organic Blackstrap Molasses, I was encouraged to buy this product too to see for myself how well will it work for me.  But unfortunately, I was unable to tolerate the odd taste of molasses. It is just too bad to my taste. I can't exactly describe the taste but it is extremely sweet and has a horrible aftertaste on my mouth. But my husband on the other hand found nothing wrong with its taste. He’s taking it like an ordinary sweet thing. I don’t know what’s wrong with my sense of taste. Why is it that while I could not tolerate the taste of Organic Blackstrap Molasses, my husband found no problem with it at all? In fact he was thinking that I was just over-reacting for I went to the point of throwing up when I tried it the first time. Well the was the first and the last time actually. Even my son said there is really nothing too bad in it. Nevertheless, I found an ally in my sister. I asked her to have a taste of it and just as I did she also threw up and I could not describe his sour face after.

As I could not really tolerate the bad taste, it was my husband who went on using the first Organice Blackstrap Molasses that I bought and indeed he was able to get good benefits. After a week, he started noticing his much improved energy level. Even after a long and busy day in the office, he could still do tough chores at home without feeling exhausted. With this significant benefit, my husband decided to make molasses as regular part of his diet. He either takes this plainly or as sweetener to morning cereals, oats, and wheat or rice bran. He swears that it has given significant boost in his energy and endurance level. I noted it has also improved his sleeping habit. He is always lively and I noted that his new found strength has given him positive mood and outlook in life. Although I am not directly benefited by molasses, its benefits to my husband his enough to make me happy.

I heard an herbalist who said this: “Molasses are being fed to horses so they could manage to gallop, jump and even climb mountains. Therefore, if molasses could do this to horses, it could do this to men as well.” I agree with her. This is really true and I am thankful that this has been discovered. This is the reason why molasses which used to be just an ordinary food for swine and horses is now being consumed by many healthy-conscious folks all over the world. How I wish I could also enjoy the same benefits but sorry for me for I can’t really take the taste. It is so horrible that my head grows bigger just at the mere thought of tasting it again. Sorry but I don't think I will ever try tasting this again. I am anyway getting good health benefits from other sources so I have decided to just leave all the benefits of molasses to my husband.

Greenlily, Thank you for sharing this. It has been many years since I tried molasses, however I remember the pungent after taste that I dreaded as well. Hmmm It might be worth purchasing and trying again? Peace & Blessings!
