Today I will show you below that most of the values ??of cucumber are found in its skin.
Cucumber skin is a good source of beta carotene, essential for eye health.
Half a serving of whole-skinned cucumber slices provides 55 units of vitamin A, half of which comes in the form of beta carotene.
Cucumber as a whole is also rich in vitamin C.
One serving of cucumber with or without skin provides 3.8 grams of vitamin C.
Since this vitamin cannot be stored in the body, one must provide constant amounts of it.
Vitamin C protects immunity and stimulates collagen production.
Cucumber skin is rich in fiber which cleanses the digestive system from any food debris.
Fiber removes constipation, absorbs excess fluids and removes them from the body.
A cup of cucumber slices along with the skin offer 1 gram of fiber.
Cucumber skin is rich in vitamin K, which activates the body's proteins for bone maintenance and cell development.
However, the primary role of vitamin K is to maintain blood circulation
A cup of whole-skin cucumber slices contains 49 micrograms of vitamin K.
The same amount of skinless cucumber contains only 9 micrograms of vitamin K.
People taking blood-thinning medications should consult their doctor about consuming foods with vitamin K, because this vitamin clots the blood.
Cucumber, with or without skin, provides few calories.
Eating tasty and refreshing cucumber, revitalizes the body, but has no negative impact on body weight.
