Blackstrap molasses to come to rescue for people with bowels, hemorrhoids, arthritis, and diabetes
21 Dec 2020
Who would have thought a byproduct obtained during the production of raw sugar from sugarcane is capable of helping people in treating various health conditions? Blackstrap molasses contains rich source of nutrients that can be utilized for treatment of bowels, hemorrhoids, arthritis, and diabetes. Its nutritional contents such as zinc, copper, potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, and magnesium help in overcoming different health conditions when consumed in small amount for a specific period of time. Research activities are ongoing across the world to determine different benefits. The demand is expected to rise in the coming years. According to the report published by Allied Market Research, the global blackstrap molasses market is expected to reach $18.18 billion by 2027. Following are some of the ways blackstrap molasses can come to rescue to overcome several health conditions.
Research studies have been conducted by researchers across the world and they have presented their findings in the journals. According to the research article published in the Complementary Therapies in Medicine, blackstrap molasses can help in normalization of bowels. People suffering from bowel issues have an inflammation in their digestive tracts. In addition, the immune system responds to microbiome of the gut. Sugarcane molasses have an ability to improve the natural anti-inflammatory reaction of the human body. The bacteria present in the colon are enhanced for improving reaction. Else, microbiome has been modified in a favorable way. So, the consumption of this type of molasses can offer huge advantage. In another research article published in the The People’s Pharmacy, blackstrap molasses was found to be improving condition of people suffering from hemorrhoids. It contains residual minerals including copper, potassium, manganese, calcium, iron, and magnesium. The combination of these minerals offers necessary benefits to overcome the issues. As it contains iron and zinc, it helps in fulfilling the deficiency and relieves the cravings of nonfood items such as baking soda, ice, clay, and others.
Researchers and medical institutes have been spending millions on research activities for finding treatment for arthritis and still no solid answer has been found. There have been research activities that focus on treating arthritis through a drug free way. This involves involvement of specific kind of food along with exclusion of some foods. Margaret Hills, the author of the book Curing Arthritis the Drug Free Way, outlined in her book that restoration of acid/alkaline balance in the body can reduce the excess acidity, which is responsible for health conditions such as arthritis and others. Blackstrap molasses, being a rich source of iron, it helps in keeping acidity levels in the body balanced. When taken with supplements such as vitamin C and calcium, this combination would be beneficial in treatment.
Blackstrap molasses can be utilized as a natural sweetener for people suffering from diabetes and obesity. As optimum number of sugar crystals can be eliminated during sugarcane processing, it becomes a preferred option for natural sweeteners. In addition, it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and can offer nearly 20% of total daily intake of iron and up to 10% of total daily intake of vitamin B6, and other nutrients. Another striking benefit is its GI value. Its GI value is 55–60, which is lower as compared to that of table sugar and regular molasses (70).
