But have you ever thought how that juice you squeeze out of the cane benefits your body? Best thing is that you don’t have to struggle so much crushing the cane. You can drink the juice instead and enjoy its numerous benefits.

Here are just a few health benefits of drinking sugarcane juice:

1. Great skin

First, sugarcane keeps your skin hydrated giving you a supple and youthful appearance. It also contains hydroxyl acid and glycolic acid both which are great for the skin. Drinking it regularly prevents ageing, treats acne and reduces blemishes.

2. Pregnancy

Pregnancy in the first weeks is mostly characterized by nausea, morning sickness and digestion issues. Drinking sugarcane juice during pregnancy fights morning sickness, boosts metabolism thus preventing indigestion and also gives one energy.

3. Digestion

Thanks to the generous amounts of fiber in sugarcane, it promotes digestion. The laxative properties prevent constipation, bloating and also heals the gut.

4. Immune system

Sugarcane juice is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants that boost the body’s immunity thus keeping away infection.

5. Prevents UTI and kidney stones

Urinary tract infections are quite common especially among women. Fortunately, several studies show that regular consumption of sugarcane juice helps prevent UTI and kidney stones. This is because sugarcane acts a natural detoxifier.

6. Weight loss

If you are trying to lose weight, make sugarcane juice your friend. The dietary fiber is known to help in weight loss while it also makes you feel full thus preventing overeating and snacking regularly.

7. Diabetes

Even though diabetic people are advised to keep off sugar, sugarcane juice is extremely low in glycemic index making it ideal for diabetic patients.
