Uridine in blackstrap molasses

Question

I've heard uridine might help fat return. Can this be found in blackstrap molasses or only in beet molasses?

Thanks

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

It really doesn't matter whether molasses contains uridine. The large randomized trial of uridine that we have all been waiting for was presented at CROI last week and showed no benefit for lipoatrophy.

Actually, those on uridine had increased markers of inflammation, so there is nothing to recommend this expensive treatment.
