Skin Care : One of the components of sugarcane juice is alpha hydroxy acids, specifically glycolic acid, which has been linked to antioxidant effects on the skin. This juice, when regularly consumed, can clear up skin inflammation and infections, while also reducing signs of aging, such as wrinkles, blemishes, discoloration, and scars.

Support during Pregnancy : Sugarcane juice taken during pregnancy can help to boost metabolism, improve digestion, reduce symptoms of morning sickness, and provide energy throughout the day, thanks to its low glycemic index. It can boost the immune system naturally, rather than having to rely on pharmaceuticals or antibiotics. This juice also helps eliminate symptoms of constipation, another frequent complaint by pregnant women. That being said, as with any addition to a pregnancy diet, run the idea past your doctor first.

Freshen Breath & Fight Cavities : Sugarcane juice is often consumed as a home remedy for tooth decay, and resulting bad breath.

The high doses of nutrients in this juice help counter bad breath due to nutrient deficiency.

This, in turn, helps to prevent the development of osteoporosis. A single glass of this juice every day can keep your bones strong as you age.

Improved Digestion :There are certain laxative qualities of sugarcane juice, thanks to its supply of dietary fiber. The fiber helps stimulate peristaltic motion, heal inflammation in the gut, and relieve symptoms of constipation, bloating and cramping.

Stress Management : Some of the amino acids found in sugarcane juice, in addition to tryptophan and magnesium, can help to balance your stress hormone levels and even help to induce sleep. If you regularly suffer from insomnia or interrupted sleep and give relief from insomnia or interrupted sleep.

Normal Blood Pressure : With its supply of potassium, sugarcane juice is able to reduce the strain and tension in blood vessels and arteries, effectively lowering blood pressure, and reducing your risk of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.

Prevention of Kidney Stones : Numerous studies have linked the consumption of sugarcane juice with a lower occurrence of urinary tract infections and a lower risk of developing kidney stones. Essentially, this juice detoxifies the body and protects the function of the body’s detoxing centers.

Weight Loss : Sugarcane juice is rich in dietary fiber that helps to bind with fat and prevent it from being stored in the body, while also making you feel full, thus preventing snacking and overeating. Your digestive health will also be boosted by fiber, helping to relieve constipation and improving your gut’s ability to absorb critical nutrients. The alkaline nature of this juice helps to create the ideal environment for fat-burning, rather than an overly acidic system, while the high natural sugar content provides a huge source of energy, which increases activity and stimulates more calorie-burning.

Diabetes : This juice has a surprisingly low glycemic index, based on the types of sugars that are found in the juice, so it is actually more beneficial than your average fizzy drink or soda, as the sugars are more slowly absorbed and processed by the body, preventing the sugar rush that many people associate with high glycemic beverages. For people not suffering from Type 2 diabetes, this drink can actually help to regulate your blood sugar levels, when consumed in moderation.
