You probably already know that sipping cucumber water is healthier than drinking water alone, but what exactly are the health benefits?

July 21, 2019

The obvious reason to drink cucumber water is that hydration is vital to good health and since infused waters, like cucumber water, tastes great, chances are you’ll drink more.

 

But did you also know that it can help with weight loss, lowering blood pressure, slowing cancer and skin health!

 

Weight Loss- Cucumber water has almost zero calories.  When feeling hungry, drink a glass of cumber water first, to see whether the hunger pangs go away. Being hydrated can also help you feel full.

Blood Pressure- A diet high in sodium and low in potassium can lead to high blood pressure. By including potassium in your diet, you may help lower blood pressure.

Cancer Fighting- Cucumbers are rich in flavonoids that might help to fight cancer. According to a 2012 study published in the journal of Cancer Research, the dietary flavonoid fisetin found in cucumbers may be able to slow the progression of prostate cancer.

Healthy Skin- Proper hydration can help the body flush out toxins and keep the skin healthy. Cucumbers are loaded with vitamin B which can help with acne and other skin issues.
