Cucumber:

  • Cucumbers contain silica, a trace mineral necessary to keep your connective tissue healthy.
  • Cucumbers also act as a natural diuretic helping you get rid of that excess water and bloating
  • Keeps you hydrated.
  • Flushes out toxins.
  • Stabilizes blood pressure.
  • Helps digestion.
  • Keeps kidneys in shape.
  • Cucumber contains a hormone needed by the cells of the pancreas for producing insulin.
  • Low calorie: An 8.25-inch cucumber only has 45 calories with its skin and 34 calories without its skin.

Some consider this a detox drink because of the toxin flushing properties. I am not personally going to even try the lemon water detox. It requires days of only the water. That is not for me. AND I believe that we can reap some benefits without going to those extremes. I need more than water.

I have added this to my daily routine. I have 1-2 glasses during the day. When I am craving a snack, I pour a glass. Then I fill a 32oz cup and drink 2 of those while taking a hot bath.

It is so good, you will not mind drinking this water. This is a great way to get your water intake for the day. It is also more powerful than water alone. This detox water has been a part of my diet for 3 weeks now. I have discovered I lost 1 pound MORE per week when I include this. We all love faster results, right? I know I do.
