Cool as a Cucumber: Health Benefits of Raw Cucumber Juice

Cucumbers were thought to originate over 3000 years ago in southern Asia, where they have been juiced for drinking on hot days to cool the body.

Cucumbers belong to the Cucurbitaceae family, like pumpkin, zucchini, melon and watermelon. The flesh of cucumber has 96 per cent water in its composition.

Raw cucumber juice has a variety of health benefits. It is traditionally used for:

  • Acne
  • Arthritis
  • Eczema
  • Fluid Retention
  • Hair Loss
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Kidneys
  • Psoriasis
  • Stomach Disorders, such as hyperacidity, gastric and duodenal ulcers.
  • Weight Loss.

Raw cucumber juice is a good source of

  • Copper
  • Chlorine
  • Folate
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin K
  • Potassium
  • Panthothemic acid
  • Phosphorus
  • Thiamin
  • Sulphur.

Cucumber peel is rich in Vitamin A. If you want to juice unpeeled cucumbers, make sure they are not waxed.

The raw cucumber juice mixed with other vegetable juices enhances the nutritional value of these juices.

In pregnancy, raw cucumber juice helps to to moderate nausea and vomiting.

Take 1 glass of raw cucumber juice and stay as cool as a cucumber!

    I drink lots of freshly pressed juice and it really makes a difference to your health and vitality. Carot and apple in the morning really gives you a kick start to the day. I juice dark berries and have them in a shot glass for all the antioxidents. its great!
