Cucumbers belong to the Curcurbitaceous family, with melons and squash. They are very high in water, usually 90% their weight in water, and very low in calories and an excellent source of potassium, Vitamin C and folic acid. Though grown in many countries today, cucumbers were originally cultivated in India. Because of their high water content, cucumbers hold an internal temperature of about 20 degrees lower than the warm external environment they may grow in, which makes them a perfect ingredient for a cool, refreshing drink.

Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory benefits: Phytonutrients in the cucumber partner with their vitamin C, beta-carotene and manganese properties to scavenge free radicals, inhibit inflammation, and prevent the overproduction of nitric oxide.

Cleansing: Cucumbers offer cleansing benefits within the body:

Their high water content stimulates the bladder and carries rich, nutrient dense water to the cells to:

Remove waste build-up and chemical toxins from the body

Helps eliminate uric acid from the body

Rejuvenating and Beautifying: Because of cucumber’s high silica content, they are known to rejuvenate and youth-ify the skin, by promoting a smooth complexion and elasticity to the outer dermal layers. Cucumbers make our skin glow, and are beneficial for our hair and nails too!
