Cucumber has a way of making the simplest things better. The superfood has some skincare benefits including vitamin C and caffeic acid, which both fights to reduce inflamed or irritated skin, and hydration thanks to its high water content.
Unfortunately, we have only limited the benefits of the food to its benefit to the skin only, but eating cucumbers help not only the skin but the entire body system.
Aside from the normal breakfast or salad which we usually add the superfood, eating it in the night can be extremely beneficial.
In this article, we have put together some amazing benefits cucumber does to the body when taken at night.
• Keep your digestion going strong
Basically, all the calories in cucumbers (and yes, there’s not that many) come from fibre. Fibre helps improve gut health and bowel movement regularity and is beneficial in managing certain conditions like diabetes and high cholesterol, and will even fill you up to prevent you from overeating.
• Weight loss
Cucumbers are low in calories and also contain fibre, thereby helping in maintaining a healthy weight.
Consumption of cucumbers helps you to maintain a healthy weight due to its rich in fibre. You can enjoy cucumbers by adding it to your everyday meal such as salad or in vegetable juices.
• Keep you hydrated
Cucumbers are 96% water, and the water content is more nutritious than regular water. If you are feeling dehydrated, munch on some cucumbers. They will also help you flush out toxins, so you can slice some up before bed to avoid a hangover.
• Combat bad breath
One common cause of bad breath is odour produced when bacteria attack trapped food particles. The fluid in cucumbers, as well as the saliva production triggered by chewing, helps to cleanse the mouth and wash away these smelly culprits.
• Disease protection
Cucumbers contain an excellent deal of antioxidants, those square measure molecules which will stop oxidative damage in the body. They bond with and neutralize odd electrons referred to as free radicals to guard you against problems like chronic health problem and premature ageing. In fact, atom injury encompasses a robust association with heart and internal organ issues, cancer, and disease.
