Indian Summer vegetable - Cucumber

Indian summer vegetable - CUCUMBER OR KHEERA

Cucumber is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables.
Cucumber has 96% water content, which helps in keeping the body hydrated and in regulating body temperature.

Cucumber contains a lot of potassium, magnesium and fiber that work effectively for regulating blood pressure.

Digestive disorders like acidity, heartburn, gastritis and even ulcers can be cured by the daily consumption of fresh cucumber juice.

The high water content in cucumber is very effective in flushing away the toxins from the digestive system and hence aid digestion. Thus cucumber acts as a diuretic. Regular intake of cucumber helps to dissolve bladder or kidney stones.

For the cooling effect in this hot summer have atleast one cucumber a day.

  1. Cucumbers are absolutely great for our health, and it helps that they taste great too, always used as a salad in south Asia. I have never heard anybody dislike them
