Tea With Molasses for Constipation.





Introduction: Tea With Molasses for Constipation.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

For those like me with chronic constipation, hot tea with molasses helps alot to get stuff moving. Here is how I make mine each day with breakfast.

Step 1: The Tea.

Make your tea of choice with the water nice and hot.

Step 2: Sugar (optional).

Add to your preference.

Step 3: Molasses.

Two tablespoons of blackstrap molasses does the trick for me. Ideally I use only molasses and no sugar but that's just me. Too much refined sugar is not good. Stir it in good.

Step 4: Completion.

Now the tea with constipation softening molasses is ready for enjoyment! Happy movements all!

    Black tea contains tannins which are often used in herbal medicine for diarrhea, and may be less effective than herbal teas such as ginger/orange peel. Personally I would add a prune to each cup of this to amp up the effect or chase it down with prune juice, which is a non-habit-forming laxative in itself.



    Without being too... graphic, how exactly does this improvement to the condition manifest itself. Is it an over-correction type situation?

    Works like a charm plus the molasses is full of necessary nutrients. It's my daily requirement.

    Do you find a difference between sulphured and unsulphured molasses?
