Cucumber water is not only healthy but also a natural slimming aid. This is one of the reasons why this easy-to-prepare drink has long since become an absolute trend.

Cucumbers consist of 95 percent water. This means that the vegetable contains hardly any calories. At the same time, the high water content supports the body’s fluid intake and helps to eliminate toxins. Tasty vegetables also contain a high proportion of vitamins B and C. These are mainly hidden in the skin, so they should also be eaten. Cucumbers are also rich in potassium, iron, magnesium, and calcium. This combination makes cucumbers a healthy ingredient for salads and an excellent slimming agent when mixed with water.

Cucumbers give water a fresh flavor and contain hardly any calories. This makes cucumber water an ideal and refreshing alternative to lemonade. The vitamin C contained in cucumbers stimulates noradrenaline production, thus boosting fat burning. At the same time, cucumber water proves to be a natural beauty elixir. This is due to the trace element silicon, which strengthens the connective tissue and keeps the skin elastic.

Cucumber water recipe
For two liters of cucumber water, puree one cucumber, 12 mint leaves, and approx. 3 cm of ginger in a blender. The pulp is then infused with two liters of water and the juice of one lemon. Place the mixture in the fridge overnight.
Alternatively, the cucumber and lemon can be cut into thin slices.

Water not only quenches our thirst but also tones us up, keeps our cells fit, and helps us lose weight. As “negative calories,” water burns around 50 calories per 500 ml. Cucumbers, in turn, dehydrate, stimulate the metabolism, and have a diuretic effect. Ginger in cucumber water promotes bowel function and positively affects the gastrointestinal tract. The vitamin bomb lemon is good for digestion, and fresh mint stimulates fat metabolism.
