Cucumbers are filled with lots of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. They are packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, magnesium, potassium, fiber, phosphorous, iron and calcium! And when you juice a cucumber and drink it, the body has the best opportunity to absorb many of the nutrients that this amazing vegetable has to offer.

Cucumbers have been known primarily as a great tonic and purifier of the body. One of the reasons is that--in addition to its nutritional benefit--cucumbers are filled with naturally distilled water. So the naturally distilled water within the cucumber acts as a cleanser of the body. It washes all the vital organs like the liver, the kidneys, the bladder, pancreas, the stomach and the entire digestive system. It helps the bones in the process of calcium absorption because of its balanced calcium and magnesium content.

Because of its power, it has been associated with aiding in the healing process of various diseases and ailments of the body like cancer, arthritis, bone defeciences, liver or kidney problems, urinary tract infections, yeast infections, digestive issues and the list goes on. While on a fast, drinking cucumber juice can act as a purifier for the skin. If there is a problem with acne or eczema, cucumbers can purify the blood and allow the skin to heal and normalize.

So have some cucumber juice from time to time. It is so good for you! The benefits are amazing and it is a great little beverage to incorporate into your diet when you are making transitions of the sort: dietary transitions, transitions away from medications, etc.
