Why cucumber?

  • Cucumbers are made up of 95% of water which helps to hydrate the body and fight inflammation.
  • Full of antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin K (good for kidney health and helps build strong bones!)
  • Has Vitamin B-complex, which help ease anxiety and stress.
  • Helps digestion because cucumbers are packed with fiber and it contain potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.

Your juice should look something like this, before stirring it.
