7 Reasons Why You Should Drink Lemon Cucumber Water

“Disease cannot thrive in an alkaline body.” Lemons and cucumbers are alkaline forming foods that will help your body to function at its optimal level. A balanced pH is everything if you want to stay healthy.
2. Clear Skin
Lemon Cucumber Water is packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants, and silica. Silica is nature’s anti-aging secret. Lemon Cucumber water will cleanse toxins from your body that would normally erupt as unsightly blemishes

The silica in cucumbers is a mineral necessary to keep connective tissue healthy. Add a few slices to your workout water bottle.

Citrus flavonoids stimulate and purify the liver. This is good if you’ve been partying hard and want to go on a liquor cleanse to re-balance your body. An entire cucumber averages about 45 calories and a lemon only 17, so a few slices in your water is not adding many additional calories.
