What Is So Cool About Cucumbers?

By Dave Kettner May 29, 2017 0 comments

Did you know that cucumbers are a great source of nutrients? Packed with 95 % water and vitamins K and B, they also have nutrients such as copper, potassium, and manganese. Many of the very nutrient deficiencies that are widespread among the typical American diet.This is why cucumbers can help you to avoid nutrient deficiencies diet. As such, cucumbers may help you reduce the risk of chronic diseases as they contain unique polyphenols and other compounds known to be powerful nutrients to protect our bodies.
Cucumbers contain numerous antioxidants, including the well-known vitamin C and beta-carotene. They also contain antioxidant flavonoids, such as quercetin, apigenin, luteolin, kaempferol, and fisetin all of which provide additional yet separate benefits. Some of the roles that these antioxidants play in our bodies are protecting the brain from age-related decline, improving memory and have anti-inflammatory properties. Because cucumbers "cool" the inflammation in the body it helps fight those chronic diseases that cause inflammation. In addition they also contain phytonutrients called cucurbitacins, which also have anti-cancer properties. According to the George Mateljan Foundation:
"Scientists have already determined that several different signaling pathways (for example, the JAK-STAT and MAPK pathways) required for cancer cell development and survival can be blocked by activity of cucurbitacins."

The cucumber just being itself helps manage stress by containing multiple B vitamins, including vitamin B1, vitamin B5, and vitamin B7 (biotin). B vitamins are known to help ease feelings of anxiety and buffer some of the damaging effects of stress.
Cucumbers are rich in two of the most basic elements needed for healthy digestion: water and fiber. If you struggle with constipation you should know that cucumber skins contain insoluble fiber, which helps add bulk to your stool. This helps food to move through your digestive tract more quickly for healthy elimination.

Next time this great fruit is on your table, grab a couple of slices, eat them raw or with a salad and add them to your infuser water bottle, and enjoy for great health.
