Eating a healthy well-rounded diet is one of the best ways to keep your body fit, your immune system strong, and to live a long and healthy life.
Cucumbers are made up of 95% water, which makes them great for hydration and keeping cool in warmer weather. Because they are made up mostly of water, they are great for keeping your skin healthy. They can be used to keep swelling down, as well as help with sunburns if used topically - this is why you see people relaxing with cucumbers over their eyes while at the spa. Cucumbers are also rich in silica, which helps build strong tissue - keeping muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and bones healthy.
Cucumbers are packed with B vitamins including B1, B5 and biotin. B vitamins are important because they keep your cell metabolism healthy and working properly. Other vitamins found in cucumbers include vitamin K, potassium, manganese, vitamin C, magnesium molybdenum, pantothenic acid, and phosphorus. Cucumbers are all filled with antioxidants as well as have cancer fighting and anti-inflammatory benefits. This yummy vegetable is both delicious and beneficial for living a healthy and long life.
