Properties and benefits of cucumbers

The body of a cucumber is, for the most part, water; 95% of its weight to be exact. This high percentage of water gives the cucumber its refreshing properties, and they are frequently used in Hindu, Arabic and European cuisine. They are also high in fibre, which makes them more filling and aids with weight loss.

Cucumbers: ideal for detox diets

For every 100 grams of cucumber, there are only 16 calories, and will help you lose weight thanks to their fibre and high water content. This high water content is also good for flushing toxins from the body.

Rich in vitamins and minerals

Thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), B5, B6, C, K… cucumbers bring many vitamins to your daily diet. Because of their high water content, they don’t have more than 5% of your daily requirements per 100 grams, apart from vitamin K, which has triple the concentration.

Cucumbers contain calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium and zinc, which will help you to reach your recommended mineral intake. Being low in sodium, they are also recommended to people suffering from hypertension.

Other benefits of cucumbers

Do cucumber face masks sound familiar? Cucumbers have many cosmetic uses that go beyond what vitamins can do for your skin. They are known for their hydrating properties and are used in masks and moisturising products, as well as being used to whiten the skin and treat sunburn. Other uses for this vegetable include improving the joints thanks to its high silicon content, and fighting hangovers with its unique combination of electrolytes, vitamin B, sugars and water.
