Cucumber Juice Diet: The Four Benefits of Drinking Green Juice Daily
You don’t need to do a juice cleanse to reap the benefits of consuming fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Cucumbers are extremely nutrient dense and drinking the juice of two cucumbers a day could transform your health in many ways. Express.co.uk reveals everything you need to know about the benefits of drinking cucumber juice, according to author of bestselling Thyroid Healing and number one New York Times bestselling book Life-Changing Foods, Anthony William aka the Medical Medium (@medicalmedium on Instagram).
Cucumber juice might not sound too appealing, but it’s a “highly alkalizing and hydrating drink” that the Medical Medium recommends.
The natural juice is rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, magnesium, silicon and potassium, so it can help cure a number of health conditions.
All you have to do is wash and chop two large organic cucumbers, run them through a juicer, and drink them on an empty stomach every day.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can always blend your cucumbers, then strain them through a fine-mesh strainer, cheesecloth, or a bag of nut milk so you end up with just the juice to drink.

You might think that mixing cucumber juice with other fruits and vegetables to improve the taste will do the trick, but cucumber juice should be drunk on its own.
The Medical Medium writes on its website, “Cucumber juice is best consumed alone about twenty to thirty minutes from other foods and beverages.
“Some people like to take it twenty to thirty minutes after their pure celery juice in the morning.
“Others like to take it half an hour before their dinner, and some people enjoy their cucumber juice an hour before bed.
“Each of these times is wonderful provided they are kept away from other food and drink.”
But what is the point of all this? Express.co.uk reveals four benefits of drinking cucumber juice. Please note that the information does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
Detox and hydrate
Cucumber juice has the ability to “cleanse and detoxify” the whole body.
In addition to this, it has been found to help relieve digestive issues such as gastritis, acidity, heartburn, indigestion, and ulcers.
The Medical Medium site adds, “It’s also an ideal way to properly hydrate the body as it contains beneficial electrolytes that have the ability to deliver nutrients and hydration deep into cells and tissues, making it much more effective than water alone.”

People often praise “anti-inflammatory diets” for helping them overcome specific disorders caused by inflammation, and cucumber juice is probably the easiest way to start an anti-inflammatory diet.
The Medical Medium website explains, “It also has wonderful anti-inflammatory benefits that can significantly benefit autoimmune and neurological disorders.
Examples given on the site include chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraines, anxiety, depression, shingles, eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and lupus, but all those who are inflammatory can benefit from regular consumption of cucumber juice.
You have fever ? Of course, take what your doctor ordered, but also try cucumber juice.
The Medical Medium says, “Cucumber juice is also an excellent remedy for reducing fever and convalescence as it is very refreshing for the glands and organs of the body.
“Twelve to twenty ounces of fresh cucumber juice on an empty stomach is recommended daily to help hydrate and recover the body.”
