Sugarcane is an ancient food, used by traditional societies as a medicine for millennia. We were gifted this variety of “healing” cane by an elder Hawaiian man who said that in the old days, this cane was used to treat illness in sick people.
The nutrition of sugarcane is similar to other grasses like wheatgrass, and it breaks down in your body similar to a grain or carbohydrate. Pure sugarcane juice is high in chlorophyll, B vitamins, magnesium, iron, potassium, antioxidants, and more. It is low on the glycemic index, while also rich in complex carbohydrates and low in simple sugars.
Full of electrolytes, sugarcane is a great way to rehydrate your body after strenuous workouts. Being alkaline in nature (8.9 ph), it could help the body fight cancer and improve kidney function. Â It has been found toÂ be beneficial for preventing as well as treating sore throat,Â cold and flu.Â Itâ€™s believed to strengthen the stomach, heart, eyes, brain, and sex organs.
Cane juice is refreshing, delicious, and good for you too!
To your health!
