Dietary, Food and Lifestyle, Immunity, Libido, Wellness

What are the benefits?
Sweet like sugarcane. A tropical perennial grass (Saccharum officinarum) of the family Poaceae is commonly processed as sugar. It is also used to make ethanol and biofuel, and cane fibres are fodder for livestock. Most medical and nutritional experts advise keeping sugar intake to a minimum as our bodies can only handle a certain amount of the processed stuff at a time. Since we know all the dangers
of having too sweet a tooth, we will look at the benefits of this succulent jaw strengthening plant when
taken in its natural form.
Sugarcane chewed or juiced contains several properties and compounds that may help improve your health and fertility. It is rich in essential nutrients such as iron, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and vitamins A, C, B vitamins, B2, B9 and Folic acid.

For Men’s Fertility
For men, one vital benefit of consuming sugarcane juice is your prostate health. Sugarcane juice is an extensive deterrent to diseases like prostate cancer. Due to the presence of flavonoids, it inhibits the multiplication of cancerous cells. It is full of essential sugars that strengthen the reproductive organs. In addition, it boosts strength and provides energy when being active, improves blood flow for better penile function and prevention of blockages. In addition to all the other benefits listed, this juice takes the sauce as an aphrodisiac, increasing libido and sperm count.
