Cuke SPA H2O!
As crazy as this sounds, (and I'm sure you're surprised that I"d sound crazy....!), I discovered I LOVE cucumbers in water! I accidently on purpose found out that I loved it, (!) simply by drinking a glass of this summery produce-stand drink at an ice cream shop, of all things! I challenge you - just slice a few cukes and add to a tall pitcher of ice water and - "VOILA!"
Cucumbers are a very good source of potassium, an important intra-cellular electrolyte. Potassium is a heart friendly electrolyte; helps reduce blood pressure and heart rates by countering effects of sodium.
Wow. I eat them in salads and sandwiches, but just recently discovered drinking them is even better! And now I'm finding out that cucumbers surprisingly have a high amount of vitamin K, provides about 17 mcg of this vitamin per 100 g. Vitamin-K has been found to have potential role in bone strength by promoting osteotrophic (bone mass building) activity. It also has established role in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease patients by limiting neuronal damage in their brain.
What a "cool" drink! It's a spa in a pitcher!
