Add A Cucumber To Your Juice For These Wonderful Health Benefits

In addition to being tasty and refreshing, drinking cucumber juice offers specific health benefits due to its nutrient content. Many people can cucumber juice as part of their daily vegetable intake, as each cup of cucumber juice counts as 1 cup of veggies. You can enjoy cucumber juice on its own or use the juice as a base for healthy juice blends and smoothies.

Cucumber juice is a good source of calcium, an essential mineral that adds strength to your teeth and bones. Your body also uses calcium to contract your muscles and transmit nerve impulses. Drinking cucumber juice also helps you reach your recommended daily intake of vitamin K, which helps you build strong bone tissue and nourishes your kidneys.

Cucumber juice is a great source of copper, which helps you produce healthy red blood cells, strengthens your connective tissue and boosts your immune system. Consuming cucumber juice also activates proteins that trigger blood coagulation, which helps to fight the effects of nosebleeds, bruising and bleeding gums.

Here are some great recipes containing cucumber juice that you should try.
