Key Information:

Though commonly thought to be a vegetable, cucumber is actually a fruit.

It's high in beneficial nutrients, as well as certain plant compounds and antioxidants that may help treat and even prevent some conditions.

Also, cucumbers are low in calories and contain a good amount of water and soluble fiber, making them ideal for promoting hydration and aiding in weight loss.

Health Benefits:

One 11-ounce (300-gram) unpeeled, raw cucumber contains the following:

    Calories: 45
    Total fat: 0 grams
    Carbs: 11 grams
    Protein: 2 grams
    Fiber: 2 grams

    Vitamin K: 62% of the RDI
    Magnesium: 10% of the RDI
    Potassium: 13% of the RDI
    Manganese: 12% of the RDI

Although, the typical serving size is about one-third of a cucumber, so eating a standard portion would provide about one-third of the nutrients above.

Additionally, cucumbers have a high water content. In fact, cucumbers are made up of about 96% water.

To maximize their nutrient content, cucumbers should be eaten unpeeled. Peeling them reduces the amount of fiber, as well as certain vitamins and minerals.
