Cucumbers have a reputation as the best kidney cleansers. They are a diuretic, they prevent bloating due to water retention, and they help to wash the kidneys and bladder of debris and stones.
One of the most beutifying and cleansing of all juices combines celery, apple and cucumber together in the following ratio:
- 4-6 ribs of celery
- 1 apple
- 1 cucumber
Cucumbers contain an enzyme erepsin, which helps to digest proteins, kill tape-worms and support healthy kidneys. The shininess of cucumber skins is indicative of the presence of silicon.
Cucumbers are cooling, refreshing, water-rich, filling, low in calories, alkaline and high in energy.
