Sugar has developed a pretty bad reputation in health news recently, but despite its name, sugarcane juice can actually be quite good for you. Because sugarcane juice is derived 100% from natural sugars, with plenty of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, it is actually one of the healthiest drinks available today, and surprisingly refreshing during those hot summer months in Southwest Florida.
Some of the benefits of sugarcane juice include:
Sugarcane juice is a natural source of glucose, giving the energy boost found in most energy drinks, without the negative health effects associated with them. Because of its low glycemic index, sugarcane juice is also safe for diabetes type-1 patients.
Sugarcane juice boosts protein levels in the body, and is good for the health of the kidneys.
Sugarcane juice is high in calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and other minerals, which studies have shown to be powerful agents in fighting specific kinds of cancer.
Natural antioxidants found in sugarcane juice are helpful in boosting the immune system and fighting off illness. The potassium found in sugarcane juice is also a powerful digestive aid.
Because of the mineral content found in sugarcane juice, it has been proven to help promote strong teeth and bones. Sugarcane juice has also shown benefits to nails, hair, and skin as well.
