This article takes a look at some of the health benefits of eating cucumbers and why you should definitely include more of them in your diet.

Cucumbers are one of nature’s miracle fruits — and yes, we said fruit. While many consider this green plant to be a vegetable, due to the fact that it develops from a flower and contains the seeds of the plant, a cucumber is actually a fruit.
Since ancient times, cucumbers have been used in India in meals as well as in traditional medicine. This is because, in a warm country like India, cucumbers provide the necessary hydration and coolness to the body. And that’s not the only benefit this fruit provides.
#Protect your brain
Fisetin present in cucumbers has been identified for its role in better brain health. Cucumbers also contain phosphorous — and phosphorous deficiency is related to an increased risk of cognitive diseases. So eating cucumbers will definitely keep your brain razor sharp and focused!

#Protect your heart
Rich in potassium the cucumber can be very useful in lowering the blood pressure. According to a recent study higher level of potassium in the blood reduces the risk of stroke and prevents vascular diseases. 

#You’ll get additional hydration
Since cucumbers are 95 percent water, they are great source of hydration while at the same time helping the body to get rid of toxins. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins the body needs daily. It’s even better if you don’t peel the cucumber because the peel contains a great amount of vitamin C.

#You’ll start to lose weight
The high water content in cucumbers helps you reach quick satiation, thus controlling overeating which can help you in your weight-loss efforts. Cucumber is free from fats and is a low-calorie fruit. Hence, it’s a great choice for anyone trying to get a grip on their body weight.

If you had a little too much to drink over the weekend, and need to function come Monday, eat a cucumber. While studies have found that vegetable juice in general is a good remedy for the after effects of drinking too much.

#Your blood sugar will decrease
Cucumbers contain several antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta-carotene and manganese, as well as flavonoids, triterpenes and polyphenols called lignans.These polyphenols reduce oxidative stress, resulting in decreased levels of bad cholesterol and blood sugar.

Cucumbers are rich in vitamin K which is excellent in maintaining bone mineral density. One cup of cucumber provides you with 11 percent of your daily needs. Vitamin K is fat-soluble vitamin which combines with other essential nutrients like magnesium and calcium to preserve strong bones.
