first_img Share (Photo: eathealthystayhealthy.wordpress.com)1. The reason behind sugar cane being a popular drink during summers is because it gives an instant kick of energy and quenches the thirst. Sugar cane juice is good source of glucose which as we know, helps to re-hydrates the human body and gives it a boost of energy. So instead of your artificial energy drink, the next time you feel fatigued or dehydrated, consider drinking a glass of cane juice.2. Even though cane juice tastes very sweet and has high sugar content, it is good for diabetic patients. It contains natural sugar which has low glycemic index that prevents steep rise in blood glucose levels in diabetics, so it can act as a substitute of aerated drinks for them. However people with Type-2 diabetes should consume it in moderation and after consultation with their doctors.3. Sugarcane juice is considered an alkaline forming food because of the high concentration of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and manganese in it. Diseases like cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment and that’s why studies show that it is effective in fighting against cancer, especially prostate and breast cancer.4. As sugar cane juice boosts protein levels in the body, it helps in maintaining the health of the kidney. Taken in a diluted form, with lime juice and coconut water, sugar cane juice helps in reducing the burning sensation which is commonly associated with urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases, kidney stones and prostatitis.5. The antioxidants in sugarcane juice help to fighting against infections and boost the immunity system of the body. It also protects liver the liver against infections and helps in keeping the bilirubin levels in control. This is the reason that doctors advice drinking sugar cane juice to jaundice patients, as it is one of the few things that get digested without too much pressure on the liver and also helps in reducing the bilirubin levels.6. Sugar cane juice also acts a good digestive aid due to the presence of potassium. It helps in keeping the digestive system in good shape, prevents stomach infections and is considered to be particularly useful in treating the problem of constipation.7. Studies show that sugarcane juice protects against tooth decay and bad breath due to its high mineral content. So save yourself the next trip to the dentist and drink a glass of fresh sugarcane juice to get shiny white teeth.8. As I mentioned in a post regarding effects of nutrients on nails, deficiency of nutrients in the body can easily be noticed by looking at the health and condition of your nails. If you have brittle discolored nails that have white spots on them, then it’s time to add sugar cane juice in your diet. It contains everything to give you those strong shiny nails that would look pretty even without a nail polish.9. Sugarcane juice has been discovered to be great for those people who are struggling with febrile disorders. Febrile disorders are accountable for resulting in fevers, which can lead to seizures and loss of protein in the body. It is quite common in infants and children. Sugar cane juice helps in compensating the lost protein and helps in recovery.10. When it comes to healthy skin, alpha hydroxy acids are supposed to have a lot of benefits. They fight acne, reduce blemishes, prevent ageing and help in keeping the skin hydrated. One of the most effective alpha hydroxy acids is glycolic acid and sugarcane, is one of its few natural sources. Just apply sugar cane juice to your skin and let it dry or add it to your favourite face mask and scrub. Use it regularly to see the effect.While the advantages of sugarcane juice are many, it is essential to ensure that it is extracted in a hygienic manner. It’s also important to use and consume the juice as soon it extracted because it tends to get oxidized within 15 minutes.Source: timescaribbeanonline Share 1468 Views   2 comments Food & DiningHealthLettersLifestyleReader Bites Ten health benefits of sugarcane juice by: timescaribbeanonline – September 29, 2015center_img Tweet Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Syracuse’s Tommy DeVito makes up-and-down debut

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 1, 2018 at 1:27 am Contact Andrew: aegraham@syr.edu | @A_E_Graham Comments KALAMAZOO, Mich. — It’s been nearly two years since Tommy DeVito last saw game action. And that was in high school.“It’s been a while since I’ve been out there,” Devito said.On Friday, Syracuse (1-0) debuted the heralded redshirt-freshman late in the first half against Western Michigan (0-1), leading 34-7. But when DeVito exited the game with 5:19 left in the third quarter, SU’s lead was six. Finishing 4-for-9 for 42 yards, DeVito produced three first downs, rushed eight times for 14 yards and was sacked twice. “I just try to stay calm, do my job,” DeVito said. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe situation DeVito entered was about as perfect as imagined. On Aug. 21, head coach Dino Babers said he decided the starter, but both quarterbacks — Eric Dungey and DeVito would play — depending on the score. Leading by 27 while holding the Broncos to, at that point, one first down, was as good a time as ever. On his first drive, facing 3rd-and-9, DeVito took a page out of Dungey’s book and scampered for 11 yards and the conversion.Consistently, DeVito made more plays with his legs than his arm, avoiding the rush and taking keepers up the middle.“Tommy is probably faster than Dungey,” Babers said.DeVito’s best pass of the night, a 48-yard bomb to Jamal Custis, was wiped out by a penalty. DeVito still linked up with Dontae Strickland on a wheel route up the middle for 22 yards but otherwise was pedestrian in his passing. At times he was inaccurate, too. On a deep out to the right sideline, DeVito missed low and away to Custis. He lobbed a couple overthrows. Trying to convert a 3rd-and-9 on the first series after Western Michigan made it 34-14, DeVito looked left and whipped a pass nowhere in the vicinity of Devin Butler.“I get some reps with the ones,” DeVito said, “but sometimes you get in there and you don’t have the same chemistry as those guys running with the ones.”But the pressing matter during DeVito’s five drives was the rapidly closing margin. While WMU torched the Orange’s defense, SU’s offense stalled out. DeVito stayed in the game, Babers said, because he wanted to see if the quarterback could battle back himself.All the while, Dungey sat on the sidelines and watched. Series after series went by with the margin closing and still, DeVito stayed in.“So I understood what coach was doing,” Dungey said. “I don’t have any harsh feelings about it. I mean, we were winning. As long as we were winning I don’t really care. But once things started getting close, I was in coach’s ear trying to get back in there.”And after DeVito took a sack on third down, leading by just six, Dungey was put back in the next series, and DeVito’s day was done.last_img read more
