(NaturalNews) Nature really does give us the best cures for our health. There are many fruits and vegetables that do wonderful things for our health. One such fruit is the cucumber. The cucumber is a very diversified fruit; not only can it do great things for the inside of our bodies, but it is beneficial for the body's exterior as well. Apart from being a fruit that is great to eat, the cucumber has other awesome uses.

Good For The Body

Cucumbers are a great source of B vitamins. Apart from that, they are made of about 95 percent water, making them a great fruit to help hydrate the body. When the body gets good hydration, it can eliminate toxins, which is good for the kidneys and liver as well. Since cucumbers with their skin have most of the amount of daily vitamins that a body needs, it is a good idea to eat them as snacks.

Good For Long Term Health

Cucumbers contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol; these are called lignans, and they work in combination to help the body fight off cancer. So, cucumbers have the ability to help a person fight cancers like ovarian cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer and prostate cancer.

Cucumbers can also help with other issues as well. There is a hormone found in cucumbers that can help the pancreas produce insulin. Since that is a huge issue with diabetic patients, cucumbers could be beneficial to people who have diabetes. There is also a compound in cucumbers that can help lower cholesterol levels, and because cucumbers are rich in potassium, fiber, and magnesium, they can help a person regulate their blood pressure.

Cucumbers are very rich in a vitamin called silica. Silica helps promote health, because it can give strength to connective tissues such as joints. Since that is the case, cucumbers can help people who suffer with ailments such as arthritis pain, joint pain and gout.

Numerous other studies have been done that prove that cucumbers are also good for digestion, weight loss and bad breath; it has even been found to help with hangovers as well. Cucumbers can be used in the home for things like cleaning foggy mirrors, and they can also help with squeaky doors.
