I was having lunch with friends and they noticed I was eating bananas, quinoa, and cucumbers. I already explained them 8 Health Benefits You Didn’t know About Bananas and 5 Health Benefits of Quinoa but they wanted to know the health benefits of cucumbers so here’s what I let them know:

Hydrated

They keep you hydrated, this fruit mostly consists of water. Yes, I said fruit because a cucumber has seeds so it is a fruit despite its not so sweet taste.

Reduce Risk of Cancer

They help fight against cancer-causing entities.

Breath freshener

Placing a sliced cucumber on the roof of your mouth to rid of odors and bacteria.

Weight

They contain a lot of calories. Like many natural foods, they are filling foods to make become full. “The soluble fiber in cucumbers dissolves into a gel-like texture in your gut, helping to slow down your digestion. This helps you to feel full longer and is one reason why fiber-rich foods may help with weight control.”
