Cucumber is really the star of this recipe, and here’s why: they contain unique antioxidants and polyphenols that have been studied for their effects on reducing some cancers, cardiovascular disease, anti-microbial properties, and inflammation. Lignans are responsible for reducing estrogen-related cancers by the bacteria in our digestive systems conversion of lignans to enterolignans which bind to estrogen receptors. As with most fruits and vegetables, cucumbers contain great amounts of fiber which help our digestive system moving, keeps us fuller for a longer period of time, and releases a steady flow of energy into our bodies.
