Cucumber is probably the best NATURAL diuretic known to mankind, secreting and promoting the flow of urine. Thinking detox? This is your best juice in the morning to help your body continue it’s elimination process and enhance a healing state.
Cucumber Juice also has many more valuable properties too. For example, the promotion of hair growth, due to high silicon and sulphur content, particularly when mixed with carrot, lettuce and spinach juice.
Cucumbers contains more than 40% potassium, 10% sodium, 8% calcium. 20% phosphorus and 7% choline.
I LOVE Cucumber juice and try my best to make it a staple in my daily diet by incorporating it with lemons and apples. I know it has helped my skin and my hair tremendously. Just think how quickly all the daily pollutants and toxins get pulled from my body…quicker than most….all because I’m nourishing it with LIVE living food that is working in conjunction with what my body wants to do in the first place :”DETOX and GET HEALTHY”.
The addition of cucumber juice to one’s diet has a very beneficial effect on rheumatic ailments which result from excessive retention of uric acid in the system. The addition of beet juice will help to speed up the detoxing of this process and create an oxygen rich environment.
The high potassium content of the cucumber makes this juice very valuable in helping conditions of high and low blood pressure and also gum disease. Who would have thought?
Who has skin problems? Acne? Eczema? Rosacea? Cucumber juice will also help skin eruptions of many kinds by simply drinking it when carrot (the RICHEST source of Vitamin A around and helps bones heal too) and lettuce (38% potassium, 15% calcium, 9% phosphorus and high in iron and magnesium) have been added. This is the BEST way to heal- from the inside out!
(Just a note: When one consumes these ‘nutrients’ in their inorganic (unnatural) form i.e. processed and fortified cereals and devitalized foods, roots of hair do not receive their proper nourishment, hence one of the reasons for hair loss.)
