Raspberry Molasses. That is the what identifies the Blue B-LINE natural energy. Raspberries have many health benefits that can be found on our ‘what’s inside’ page but blackstrap molasses is where it is AT my friends! This best kept nutritional secret is the bomb-digity!
The B-LINE team was recently at an event handing out taste samples our food that increases endurance to a variety of athletes. A woman loved the Red, Pomegranate Banana flavor but would not try the Blue flavor because her grandmother, back in the day, made her eat a spoonful of blackstrap molasses every day. Why do I share this story? I share because the evidence of the nutritional benefits of this strong flavored gem has spanned the generations.
Athletes consume energy gel for, well, energy. So why do some athletes seek an energy gel has ingredients that are unknown, unheard of and are ‘new’ when the goodness that grandma dispensed is right at their fingertips? The Blackstrap molasses that is used in B-LINE organic energy gel with carbohydrates has spanned generations are here are 5 reasons why:
- Good for your bones
Calcium makes for strong bones and magnesium helps grow your bones. This amazing nutrition for endurance athletes contains both magnesium and calcium. About 5 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses contains 50% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium, 95% of iron and 38% of magnesium. (Healthline)
- Diabetic friendly
Although derived from sugar blackstrap molasses adds carbohydrate for the sports athletes but digests more slowly which may stabilize blood sugar for our sugar sensitive friends.
- Blood booster
That 95% of your daily allowance of iron mentioned above helps your red blood cells strong. A lack of red blood cells can make anyone tired and even feel weak. Fighting this anemic feeling may be overcome with a dose of Blue raspberry molasses B-LINE!
- Potassium powerhouse
We all know that bananas are a great source of potassium, but a blackstrap molasses has 10% of your daily allowance needed in just 2 teaspoons. Potassium-rich foods help lower systolic blood pressure, lower cholesterol and support a healthy cardiovascular system, in addition to helping cleanse your liver. (Dr. Axe Food is Medicine)
- Anti-inflammatory properties
Because of the anti-inflammatory properties in blackstrap molasses, it relieves swelling and joint pain that can assist in post workout recovery for any runner, cyclist, swimmer or biker.
