Move over Celery, Its Cucumber Juice Time!
The next time your order includes a ‘celery juice’ - think again! There is massive hype around the benefits and nutrients associated with cucumber. But is the hype for legitimate reasons? Or is this another ‘Unicorn Cappuccino’ concept?
So starting off high-level, cucumbers are actually a fruit and are apart of the watermelon, pumpkin family - therefore are low in calories. they do however contain SOME great antioxidants PLUS they are made up of approximately 96% water. So why not just carry cucumbers around with us all day instead of water bottles?
Here are some of the health benefits that Cucumbers provide:
Keeps you Hydrated
Helps manage weight
Boosts skin health
Helps with digestive health
Helps manage diabetes
So what about the Juice component??
Truthfully, Cucumber juice is primarily for hydration purposes - especially for those who struggle to have regular water - consider adding a few slices of cucumber for a refreshing taste.
