Why the Cucumber Detox?
Cucumbers are one of the most underrated superfoods and have many health benefits. Primarily made up of water and vitamins, they are the perfect low calorie ingredient for a light detox drink. Plus, they taste great.
Cucumbers are high in vitamin B, rich in potassium and magnesium (which may help to lower blood pressure), and also contain a powerful anti-inflammatory flavonon called "fisetin."
Cucumbers also contain powerful antioxidants and polyphenols called lignans, which may help to lower the risk of certain types of cancers.
