Pick a handful of firm, dark green cucumbers and pop them into your shopping basket. Congratulations! You have just bought yourself a fruit (yes, the cool cuke is fruit, not a vegetable) full of good health!
Here is a short list of the impressive health benefits that a cucumber carries:

Keeps you hydrated: If you are too busy to drink enough
water, munch on the cool cucumber, which is 96 percent
water. It will cheerfully compensate!

Fights heat, both inside and out: Eat cucumber, and your body gets relief from heartburn. Apply cucumber on your skin, and you get relief from sunburn.

Flushes out toxins: All that water in cucumber acts as a virtual broom, sweeping waste products out of your system. With regular use, cucumber is known to dissolve kidney stones.

Lavishes you with vitamins: A B and C, which boost immunity, give you energy, and keep you radiant. Give it more power by juicing cucumber with carrot and spinach.

Supplies skin-friendly minerals: magnesium, potassium, silicon. That’s why cucumber-based treatments abound in spas.

Aids in weight loss: Enjoy cucumbers in your salads and soups. My favorite snack? Crunchy cucumber sticks with creamy low-fat yogurt dip.

Revives the eyes: Placing chilled slices of cucumber on the eyes is a clichéd beauty visual, but it really helps reduce under-eye bags and puffiness.

Cuts cancer: Cut down your risk of several cancers by including cucumber in your diet. Several studies show its cancer-fighting potential.

Stabilizes blood pressure: Patients of blood pressure, both high and low, often find that eating cucumber brings relief.

Refreshes the mouth: Cucumber juice refreshes and heals diseased gums, leaving your mouth smelling good.

Helps digestion: Chewing cucumber gives the jaws a good workout, and the fiber in it is great for digestion.

Smooths hair and nails: Silica, the wonder mineral in cucumber makes your hair and nails stronger and shinier.

Soothes muscle and joint pain: All those vitamins and
minerals in cucumber make it a powerful enemy of muscle and joint pain.

Keeps kidneys in shape: Cucumber lowers uric acid levels in your system, keeping the kidneys happy.

Good for diabetics: Patients of diabetes can enjoy cucumber while also reaping its health benefits: cucumber contains a hormone needed by the cells of the pancreas for producing insulin.

Reduces cholesterol:A compound called sterols in cucumber helps reduce bad cholesterol.
