  6. Diana Says:

    I also just checked the same molasses and 0% copper.I am taking a week,the taste is ok,and hope to see results in 3 months.let you know later,how it works.

  7. Diana Says:

    I am using molasses about 2 months and still no results. Well,maybe I need to take longer then 2 months.

  8. Keith Says:

    I have taken minerals orally, such as Zinc, Magnesium and Selenium, but never did I noticed any reversal of my gray hair until I started taking Copper (2 mg). The end of April, 2011, will be exactly six months, and yes… I have noticed that my hair is turning back to it’s normal color.

    My point is that, if the Blackstrap Molasses product does not contain Copper, because I have always heard that it did, then go to your local GNC, and buy some Copper for about $6.40. This is exactly what I have done for six months, and I will continue to do so.
