I rarely find a 'superfood' that makes a real impact on my health (excluding Coconut Oil, of course, that stuff is da bomb!). But, I've been adding blackstrap molasses to my morning coffee for several months now and I've noticed a dramatic improvement in my usual fatigue associated with my autoimmune issues. It's not gone, mind you, but it is Noticeably improved.
If you think you need a boost in your iron level (or calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, selenium, etc) you might want to give it a try. I know a lot of people are going to cringe at the thought of the taste of molasses. It IS pretty strong. Thankfully, I have a love for the flavor as my father would mix it with softened butter and spread on my toast and I guess that memory alone makes it a yummy flavor sensation. But it IS a very demonstrative flavor, to say the least. I'm so used to it in my coffee now, I crave the taste. I can also enjoy it in a cup of strong black tea.
I think it's good in cold milk (see article) as a milkshake or in warm milk. I even enjoy it mixed into plain yogurt or kefir.
