Commercially, it is grown in many countries including South Asia, Southeast Asia, Brazil, Latin America and etc. Sugarcane juice is one of the most widely drinking juice in India, generally in the Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Benefits of Sugarcane Juice for Liver/in Jaundice

Sugarcane juice is very beneficial for the major organ of the body called liver as it helps in treating jaundice which is a liver function disorder. Jaundice causes yellow pigmentation of the skin and skin membranes because of the increased level of bile pigment called bilirubin. Bile pigment level increases due to poor liver functions or obstructed bile ducts. During jaundice, it has become very necessary to bring bilirubin level up to the normal as well as normalize the liver functioning which requires lots of medicine and home remedies.

To get fast recovery from jaundice and liver functioning disorders, sugarcane juice acts as the best home remedy for such ailments. Some of the benefits are mentioned below:

Disadvantages of Sugarcane Juice

As sugarcane juice has a lot of health benefits, it also has various health risks because of its unhygienic conditions it is prepared in. Sugarcane juice is considered as the best culture medium for the various microorganisms. That's why it is recommended that drink only fresh juice or the one kept in the freeze. Never drink already made juice or the juice kept outside the freeze.
The person may be infected with the Chagas disease if he drinks sugarcane juice from the roadside stalls. Drinking sugarcane juice from such places may also be contaminated with the feces of insect vector which may lead to the serious health hazards.
Mostly the engines used to crush the sugarcane are used a lot of oil to get moved easily. These oils have harmful effects on the health.
How much Sugarcane Juice should you Drink a Day

Having sugarcane juice on a daily basis depends on the individual need and health of the body. A person suffering from jaundice can take more than one glass a day of sugarcane juice (according to the doctor advice) but in the limit as it may cause some infections. However, one to two cup of sugarcane juice is enough for a normal and healthy person.

Hi lybrate-user. There are lot of causes fir delayed periods. If you are sexually active get the urine pregnancy test again. If not or you are not sexually active then wait for one more week. Stress is the most common factor causing it. Second is pcod which is a lifestyle disorder. You need to take medication for withdrawal bleeding and consult your doctor for further information.
