Benefits of Cucumbers

Cucumbers are 95 percent water, keeping the body hydrated while helping the body eliminate toxins. Cucumbers have most of the vitamins the body needs in a single day. Don't forget to leave the skin on because the skin contains a good amount of vitamin C, about 10 percent of the daily-recommended allowance.Cucumbers contain potassium and magnesium, and both have been shown to help lower blood pressure.The silicon and sulfur in cucumbers help to stimulate hair growth:) Cucumbers can also help your skin. Try rubbing a few slices of cucumbers into problem cellulite areas for a few minutes.The phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your outer skin layer to tighten up, reducing the appearance of cellulite.They are  also good for  reducing  the puffiness and dark circles under the eye.Cucumbers have many healthy benefits for your body on the inside and out. I always buy organic cucumbers.This way I know they are free of pesticides and waxes.
