Have you ever heard of blackstrap molasses and the wonders it can do for your beard? It's actually a natural concoction that is widely used to promote healthy growth, improve shine and increase manageability. Here is a look at the different nutrients contained in blackstrap molasses and what they do for beard hair.
Iron strengthens the follicles to encourage growth and to protect the hair from breakage. This is why it is typically one of the main ingredients included in the formulas of natural beard treatments and hair growth supplements.
Calcium may fortify the bones, but it also fortifies the hair. As a matter of fact, many studies have concluded that calcium deficiency is one of the top causes of hair loss. Blackstrap molasses replenishes the hair with calcium so it can grow long and healthy.
Manganese is considered an essential mineral needed for strong hair, but most people don't get enough of it in their diet. This nourishing supplement is also known to speed up growth by increasing the effectiveness of various vitamins and minerals.
Copper is an important ingredient of blackstrap molasses because it enhances the efficiency of iron. It also improves the health of your hair by repairing damage from a cellular level, speeding up renewal and energizing the follicles.
Potassium could possibly be the secret to achieving a full, healthy beard. Why? Well, because many researchers have found that a potassium deficiency can lead to hair loss, dullness, breakage and weak growth.
The benefits of blackstrap molasses don't stop with hair and beard care. This syrupy blend is also known to condition the skin and clear up the complexion. It's even used to give gray hair a boost of melanin to gradually reverse the loss of pigment. Now you can see why some like to call it the “miracle” syrup! Best part about it is you can pick up a bottle locally at whole foods for about $5-$6 a bottle. This will last you a few months at least since you will only be drinking 1-2 tablespoons a day.
I hope you enjoyed this post!
