They’re made up of mostly water, which makes them a perfect component of a cooling detox drink. They’re really low in calories and high in fiber, which makes them a great addition to your diet during weight loss because they’ll fill you up and help you feel more satisfied. Among its many health benefits, cucumbers are a great source of vitamin B, rich in potassium and magnesium (which may help to lower blood pressure), and have even been known to fight cancer. They contain an anti-inflammatory flavonol called “fisetin” which studies have shown to help improve brain health.

Cucumbers are a know antioxidant, and also contain polyphenols called lignans, which may help to lower your risk of certain types of cancer including ovarian, breast, and prostate cancer. Is cucumber a fruit? Yes. Cucumbers are part of a gourd plant family called Cucurbitaceae and are considered a “cylindrical fruit”. They grow on vines and come in three main varieties: slicing, pickling, and burpless.
