Benefits of Cucumber Water!

I recently discovered that I could sweeten my water with cucumber slices....Yes! cucumber. Before that I either chew it alone, eat in combination with other fruits or chop it in cubes and eat with Nigerian Jollof or white rice and stew. Cucumber has a lot of health benefits so for those who do not like the fruit itself, you can cut some slices in a glass of water, refrigerate for some time to infuse and drink up!

Here are some benefits↓↓


Source of Vitamins and Minerals  - Water is just water, adding cucumber to it and drinking, supplies your body some vital nutrients that it needs and this can also supplement your diet.

Ups your hydration - Water in itself is used to hydrate the body but adding cucumber to it doubles the hydration your body gets because cucumber is a fruit that contains a high percentage of water.

Detoxification - For those looking to detox, this is a simple, cheap and easy method. You don't  have to break the bank to get rid of toxins from your system. Adding lime or lemon to the cucumber-water mix and allowing to infuse also works as a detox drink...

Your Skin and Hair! - Hiya water lovers, your hair and skin benefits a lot from drinking lots of water right? Just imagine adding cucumber to it....Supple looking skin and healthy hair....Me likey!😉. Cucumber contains biotin which is essential for healthy hair and skin.

Lowers your blood pressure - Cucumber contains potassium which helps to balance the negative effects of sodium in your body (source). Sodium is an element indicated in Hypertension so please REDUCE YOUR SALT INTAKE.

This is my cucumber water which I prepare every morning and take to work. After drinking the water, I chew the cucumber😄.
I WANT Y'ALL TO BE HEALTHY TOO SO IF WANT TO TRY THIS OUT, LOOK OUT FOR CUCUMBERS THAT ARE MEDIUM TO DARK GREEN IN COLOUR.

  1. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
