One of the first signs of liver disfunction is emotional difficulty related to anger: impatience, frustration, resentment, violence, belligerence, rudeness, edginess, arrogrance, stubbornness, aggression and an impulsive and explosive personality. Depression, mood swings as well as excessively emotional in general are liver-related. Tiredness, dark circles under eyes, poor digestion and dull skin are also symptoms of poor liver function.

I am on my 8th day using date molasses having this each morning on an empty stomach as per, http://www.squidoo.com/herballiver-detox. The taste is kind of good actually. I do feel it may be helping with elimination yet I do recipe#422807 when I wake up and that definitely does. I feel I can't rate this correctly as I don't know how the blackstrap molasses would differ. As is with date molasses I give this 4 stars. I was doing recipe#61610 after my oil pulling each morning and I feel it greatly improves my skin, has a great taste and also is much easier and cheaper to put together than how I make this. I have been using unrefined extra virgin olive oil (healthy, expensive), freshly squeezed lemon juice, and the rest. I may try this with blackstrap molasses if I can get some! I Eat breakfast an hour later which I feel is the healthy way with a detox drink. Fresh lemon definitely does help clean the liver. Made for Special Event ~ Adopt a Veggie Tag!
I can't actually rate this because unfortunately I couldn't get past the taste. I'm sure that this is super beneficial, and I see that other reviewers have actually enjoyed the taste, but I just could not force myself to drink more than half the glass. I am glad I tried, though, and please don't let it stop you from trying it. Made for Veg*an Swap, June 2010
I did this for the "I Recommend TAG Game"...on my day 8, my husband decided to join me...truth I have liver/kidney issues so I know what is good or bad to drink and the ingredients of this are all good and good for you...I liked the taste just fine (found it really pleasant) and think I'll just keep it up until the husband is done with it too, (he says he "can't" make it alone- lol)...similar to some cleanse recipes I have tried...I found it totally curbed my appetite for hours and helped my stay off the JOE (the last of my addictions I can't 100% shake)...I only noticed that one other reviewer mentioned improvement in skin...I see it big time...really my complexion is looking good and it has been complemented more then usual this past week...thanks Sharon123 and thanks to Andi of Longmeadow Farm for the recommendation!!
