Treat Diabetes and Expel Toxins with This Crunchy Vegetable

Cucumbers belong to the same plant family as squash, pumpkin, and watermelon.  They are 90% water like watermelon, so will keep you hydrated on a hot summer day.  Cucumber packs K, B vitamins, copper, potassium, vitamin C, and manganese, so they can help you to avoid the nutrient deficiencies that are widespread in our diet.

Cucumbers contain multiple B vitamins, including vitamins which are known to help ease feelings of anxiety and stress.  Placing a cucumber slice on the roof of your mouth may help rid your mouth of odor-causing bacteria.

You can enjoy cucumbers in many ways… fermented or raw in vinegar-based salads, as a dipping chip with beans or salsa, cut into spears and soaked in a bit of lemon and a sprinkle of sea salt, or, if you’re looking for something different, as a refreshing base for your vegetable juicing.
