Are cucumbers good for you? What are the main health benefits of cucumber juice recipes? How can you combine cucumber with other fruits and veggies for a less bland taste?

Let's run through a quick list of the 6 main health benefits of cucumber juice:

1. Cool As A Cucumber

During the summer, a cucumber juice recipe can help you to cool off. It will also help to reduce water retention, especially if you combine cucumber with celery juice. We all know about the cooling effect of ice cold cucumber slices on swollen, puffy eyes!

2. Clear Skin

A variety of skin problems may improve if you make use of cucumber juice recipes. These include acne, eczema and even psoriasis. Cucumber isn't a miracle cure, but added to what your doctor is giving you, the juice may just help with healing. Cucumber juice is a good anti-oxidant source, and is also high in vitamin A and C.

3. Healthy Hair

Are cucumbers good for your hair? You bet! In fact, one of the most well-known health benefits of cucumber juice recipes is its effect on hair. The juice comes packed with silicon and sulfur. These are known to promote healthy growth when it comes to hair. You don't have to drink pure cucumber juice. It can be mixed with veggies such as carrots, for even greater benefit.

4. High Blood Pressure Help

If you have high blood pressure, you may discuss adding vegetable juice to your diet to help you. A combination of cucumber juice and celery juice can be particularly helpful. However, NEVER try to manage high blood pressure on your own or change your medication without your doctor's knowledge! This is very important. If you want to juice to help you with hypertension, only do so in partnership with your health practitioner.

5. Reduce Acidity

A cucumber juice recipe can help to lower the acidity in your body. This is very important, as high acidity creates an environment in which certain illnesses may develop. By reducing acidity, you will help to set up an optimal health environment in your body. This may also lead to improvement in conditions such as arthritis, gout, etc, as cucumber juice is known to reduce inflammation.

6. Good For Weight Loss

Not only does cucumber juice help you to get rid of excess water, but it is low in calories. So, it fits nicely into a healthy weight loss plan. You can even use it to dilute fruit juice, which will help you to take in less sugar!

So, are cucumbers good for you? In a word, yes! These are just a few of the most important health benefits of cucumber juice recipes.

In part 2 you will find out how to choose the best cucumbers - and I will also share a free cucumber juice recipe.
