By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Cucumber is a part of the gourd family and is a widely farmed crop. It's mostly cultivated in the Indian subcontinent, although it's also grown in other regions of the world. For an active and healthy lifestyle, it is regarded as the ideal food. Cucumbers are high in key elements, including Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, copper, manganese, and potassium. Thus including them in your regular diet may provide significant health benefits.

Cucumbers may simply be juiced together with a variety of other veggies such as beetroots and carrots to keep you hydrated while also boosting your metabolism. Furthermore, cucumber seeds include magnesium, which is beneficial to people who are suffering from this nutrient deficiency. Cucumbers, along with other fluid-rich foods such as celery, lime, avocado, and fennel, may help relieve abdominal tightness and stomach pain.
