Cucumbers have also proven useful for combating jaundice, diarrhea, sore throat, epilepsy, conjunctivitis, and even swelling of the extremities. I DIDN'T know that cucumbers also play a role in type 2 diabetes. First of all they DO NOT raise your blood sugar levels. The Beta cells in your pancreas produce insulin. Cucumbers are found to get a hormone used by the Beta Cells in the production of insulin.
They are also inexpensive and easy to add to salads, Vita Mixer drinks, and veggies trays along with low cal dip.
Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.
