Blackstrap Molasses is a rich source of minerals and vitamins. It is a bowel regulator and helps prevent constipation and colitis. Blackstrap molasses doesn’t digest entirely in the stomach like most other sugars. It only partially digests in the stomach, then goes into the intestinal tract and is consumed in the intestines. Because of this, nutrients are available in the intestinal tract where they are needed to help assist in the cleansing process. Blackstrap molasses helps to regulate the bowels, and is an important part of why Black Magic is so effective. Its attributes include:
• More calcium than a glass of milk

Dried Plums (Prunes)
The process of drying plums to make prunes is thought to have originated thousands of years ago near the Caspian Sea, the same region where the prune-producing European plums originated. Their popularity spread throughout Europe with the migration of different cultures and civilizations. Dried plums are a source of fiber and have long been recognized as a nutrient-rich fruit with multiple health benefits. A recent study from Tufts University in Boston measuring the total anti-oxidant power or ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) levels in commonly eaten fruits and vegetables ranked dried plums at the very top of the list with a score of 5770, more than double the score of the next highest food (raisins). This suggests that frequent consumption of dried plums may help in the battle against the aging process.
Figs are fat-free, sodium-free and, like other plant foods, cholesterol-free. Figs are high in fiber, providing 20% of the Daily Value — more dietary fiber per serving than any other common dried or fresh fruit. Of the approximately five grams of fiber per serving of California figs, four grams are insoluble and one gram is water-soluble. Figs have the highest overall mineral content of all common fruits. A 40 gram (1/4 cup) serving provides 244 mg of potassium (7% of the DV), 53 mg of calcium and 1.2 mg of iron.ocess.
Senna is a legume, related to beans, that grows in Egypt. It is one of the world’s safest and most thorough laxatives. Senna not only cleanses the bowel, it also tones it. By itself, Senna is not usually recommended for long term use; however senna’s irritant characteristics can be mellowed when combined with other health giving plants and fruits.
