The Benefits Of Juicing Cucumbers

cucumberJuicing Cucumbers

Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables will deliver to your body the vitamins you need. Juicing cucumbers is one such example, providing key nutrients and other health benefits — and it can even assist you in weight loss.

Cucumbers are a good source of B vitamins and cucumbers contain 95% water. They help keep your body hydrated and help your body eliminate toxins. I’ve heard claims that cucumber juice is even more beneficial in hydrating your body than water, but don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Water is essential for your overall health.

Cucumber is also good for your skin and hair. That’s why many of the beauty products claim to contain cucumber. In addition, cucumbers contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol. Research shows these three lignans have a connection with reduced risk of several cancer types, including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and prostate cancer.


Cucumber is also known to be good for diabetics and to lower cholesterol levels. So if you want more energy, to get rid of toxins, lower your cholesterol and have beautiful hair and skin, then you should be putting some cucumber in your juice. Have fun juicing and cheers to your health!

  1. I was glad to see cucumber helps lose weight and is good for the skin and hair. I love cucumber either juiced or blenderized or eaten as raw snack and sometimes paired with carrots because it has a lot of water and is a good substitute for fruit juice and soda.

  8. Fresh vegetable juice is healthy and nutrient. Cucumber is best for cancer prevention, good for blood pressure, teeth and disgesting system. But it’s even better that we peel the skin before jucing as I know some will keep the skin. However, eating too many raw cucumbers or too much cucumber juice can give you some side effects.

    Agreed! Cucumbers are great for weight loss and for juicing. However, some people don’t even like them. Not even in salads. Some even think they reduce the vitamin C nutrients on other vitamin C providers. I don’t really care because they are great for my ulcers.

  24. Karielyn

    I LOVE cucumber juice…especially with spinach and celery…it’s my favorite! Do you find it’s hard to juice (gets kind of mushy)? I use an Omega 8005 juicer. Thanks for the informative post! Karielyn

    • Rich Donahue

      Hi Karielyn,

      Thanks for responding. I love adding cucumber because it tastes great and makes the green juice more palatable for me. I use a centrifugal juicer which does cucumber nicely. I refrigerate them so they stay crisp and juice them as quick as possible. The J8005 (masticating type) just handles those differently. Thank you again and Happy Holidays!
