5. Digestive regularity
Nobody likes to talk about it, but constipation is a big problem. Many things cause constipation, including stress, dehydration, and poor nutrition. But don’t be afraid, eating cucumber every day can help you stay regular. As we know, it contains a lot of water, which helps soften stools and makes them easier to pass.
The fibre in cucumbers also provides a help. The particular type in cucumbers is a soluble fiber called pectin. Research shows that pectin bulges the stool (making it easier to pass), as well as speeding up the movement of intestinal muscles and feeding the good intestinal bacteria that we rely on to support digestion.
