Black strap molasses…just another (disgusting) ingredient my husband is downing for his health. I admire his resolve, it looks like sludge to me. I’ve tried it (once), and at first it smells and tastes a bit like black licorice, which I really like, but it quickly made me feel like I might throw up. I did manage to drink it mixed into a few ounces of warm water. Seriously, I felt nauseous for about 24 hours. The positive is that, hey, it’s really good for you! Go ahead and google it, I’ll wait…. My husband had been reading a lot on a particular website called earthclinic.com, in case anyone is interested. There are a lot of interesting testimonials there also. Some even said that their gray hairs disappeared. The best news – you can get it in capsule form.
