1. It keeps you hydrated.
2. It delivers antioxidants and is a good source of potassium.

In addition, cucumbers are great for preventing disease like cancer. Some early research suggests that cucumbers along with antioxidants, have compounds called cucurbitacins and a group of nutrients called lignans, which may have a role in protecting us from cancer. One study in the Journal of Cancer Research suggested that the dietary flavonoid fisetin, which is found in cucumbers, might help to slow the progression of prostate cancer.
Cucumber can also help lower your blood pressure. One contributing factor to high blood pressure is having too much salt (sodium) and too little potassium in your diet. The excess salt causes your body to hold fluids, which raises blood pressure. Potassium is an electrolyte that helps regulate the amount of sodium retained by the kidneys.Know more: https://www.healthline.com/health/food-nutrition/c...
