Containing no cholesterol or saturated fats, sugar cane juice is never refined, so it retains much of its original nutritional make-up, making it a refreshing alternative to sodas, energy drinks and other enhanced beverages. Considered to be low-glycemic, sugar cane juice offers an abundant natural source of electrolytes, essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, making it the perfect way to rehydrate after an energizing series of Sun Salutations or a heart-pounding cardio workout.
According to Ayurveda principles, sugar cane juice offers many positive benefits supporting good health including increased vitality, improved immunity, and boosted energy. Along with beneficial plant-based phytonutrients, sugar cane juice offers a good source of iron, which helps carry oxygen throughout the body; naturally-occurring potassium, vital for the regular functioning of the body’s cells, tissues and organs; and bone-building calcium too – without any added sugar. A 8 oz glass of sugar cane juice typically has 13g of sugar – compare that to a 8 oz. glass of grape juice which has 36g of sugar! No wonder sugar cane juice is considered to be “nature’s original energy drink.”
