Cucumber is a vegetable very low in calories but rich in water, minerals and antioxidants that help to moisturize the body and maintain the proper functioning of the intestine, thus ensuring health.

 

In addition to the pulp, the peel and seeds can also be ingested and are rich in fiber and beta carotene, which contribute to the health of the eyes, skin and hair.

 

The health benefits of cucumber are:

 

·         Helps to lose weight because it is low in calories and gives a feeling of satiety;

·         Improves contraction and muscle health by containing potassium and magnesium;

·         Improves blood circulation by being low in fat and rich in water;

·         Maintains hydration, because it is made mainly of water;

·         Improves intestinal transit due to the presence of fibers;

·         Prevents cancer by being rich in flavonoids and lignanas, which are powerful antioxidants;

·         Improves the health of the skin, nails, eyes and hair, by containing antioxidants and carotenoids;

· It improves heart health by being rich in potassium.

The rigid peel of the cucumber and its water-rich interior ensures a temperature always lower than that of the environment, which makes it excellent for refreshing and toning the skin when placed on the skin or on dark circles for example.

It should be consumed 1 to 3 units of cucumber per week, can be used in salads, juices and in the form of pickles. But when the digestion of cucumber is not well done, a good alternative to be able to consume it is to put cucumber slices in the water and drink the water during the day. For each liter of water, it is recommended to put about 250 g of cucumber.
