If you are looking for vegetables that cure our body, help prevent diseases, build up, and have low calorie content, cucumber is the perfect choice! We can apply both externally and internally.
Many people do not consider cucumber as super-savory – since they are relatively low in vitamins and minerals compared to vegetables, but are still the healthiest foods. On the one hand, it is low in calories (so it is also suitable for dieters) and on the other hand all year round, so it can contribute to balanced nutrition even in those months when other vegetables and fruits have no season.
In addition, it contains phytonutrients that have a very good effect on the body both externally and internally. For example, these drugs reduce the risk of cardiovascular complaints and alleviate inflammation. The high water content of the cucumber moisturises our body very well, helps maintain body temperature at the proper level and prevents overheating.
Can we eat cucumbers on tumors?
Although cucumbers have not been studied as much as other vegetables, but the compounds contained therein (which, for example, due to the taste of the cucumber) are able to fight against cancerous diseases such as the breast, ovarian, lung cancer . For example, flavonoids called fosine are effective against prostate cancer. Antioxidants in cucumber are able to protect our cells against free radical damage.
High water and fiber content also helps digestion and prevents constipation. The enzyme found in cucumber also employs proteins. According to traditional medicine, regular consumption of freshly squeezed cucumber can reduce the risk of excessive acid production, heartburn, and even gastric mucus. It is also worth splitting some or two fresh cucumbers that want to prevent the unpleasant odor. Crispy vegetables boost salivation, which is very important to “rinsing” off the bacteria that cause bad smells.
Cucumber balances blood pressure and blood sugar levels
The cucumber stimulates the pancreas function, the production of insulin, and this can reduce blood glucose levels. In addition, cucumber has a very low glycemic index, so we do not have to worry that cucumber will raise blood glucose too suddenly! In addition to blood glucose, our blood pressure has a good effect on cucumber, including because it contains potassium, magnesium and fibers.
The beauty is closely related to the cucumber: did not you see any lady resting in the eyes of cucumber slices (if not elsewhere in the magazines)? Cucumber refreshes, moisturizes, cleanses, and has contractile and anti-inflammatory effects. Even for problematic, acne-like skin!
