  1. For me Cucumber is a synonym of refreshment, as I usually eat cucumber in a salad that too almost every day during the summer time, but I’ve never heard about cucumber water before, I just googled it and found out that it’s not uncommon and helps our body to stay hydrated with extra vitamins and minerals.

    That’s why I love blogs like yours Ana, it helps us to learn new effective yet simple ways for better health and life, Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Seema for those kind words! I’m very glad you are enjoying the blog!

      Vitamin infused water can also be made using other fruits and herbs, such as strawberries, kiwis, mint, lemon, parsley.. or a combination! Mmm… 🙂
