Cucumber Water Drinks - Benefits of Cucumber Water
Infusing water with wonky fruit is what we at DASH do best, so we think that cucumber water is a perfect hydration duo. Delicious, refreshing and packed full of cucumber water benefits, DASH’s Cucumber Sparkling Water can be enjoyed on its own or as a simply delightful drink mixer. Relaxing with sliced cucumber on your eyes whilst sipping cucumber water is entirely optional…
CUCUMBER WATER BENEFITS
Made by infusing cucumber into water, it sounds simple, but that’s why simple works! So is cucumber water good for you? Here’s why we agree:
Hydration - With an incredibly high water content of 95%, cucumbers are already designed for hydration. That’s what makes our cucumber drinks the perfect pick-me-up towards helping you clock up your recommended water intake of 6-8 glasses of fluid each day.
Supports muscle tissue - For a natural alternative to sugary pre-workout drinks, sip on some DASH cucumber water instead. Since cucumber contains muscle-boosting silica, the trace mineral that keeps your connective tissue healthy, cucumber drinks can work in tandem with your exercise plan - without the sugar tax on your body.
Skin-boosting - The silica found in cucumber can also help encourage your skin to produce collagen, helping to improve the appearance of your hair and nails as part of the package.
Antioxidant rich - Cucumbers are packed full of antioxidants including calcium for strong bones, magnesium for muscle repair, and Vitamin K to aid transporting calcium to your bones for improved bone health. That’s why cucumber water drinks can serve as a turbo-charged boost to your immune system with their antioxidant properties.
THE BEST CUCUMBER DRINKS
Are we allowed to say that DASH canned sparkling water is the best? Thank you. That’s because each can of DASH holds the same three simple ingredients - natural spring water, wonky fruit and bubbles - so you can stay refreshed without the calories, sugar or sweeteners.
With a subtle hint of infused cucumber, our cucumber water drinks deliver those cucumber benefits in a tasty and sustainable way. Of course, you can try out making some cucumber water yourself too! Here’s how.
CUCUMBER WATER RECIPES
How To Make Cucumber Water
You will need:
- Some patience (1 hour)
- 8 cups of cold water
- ½ a cucumber
Add your cucumber slices to cold water, then let the concoction sit for one hour to allow time for the flavour to infuse. Serve cold and drink straight, or add to these cucumber water pairings. Keep your concoction refrigerated, and your homemade cucumber water will last for about 3 days.
CUCUMBER DRINKS TO TRY
Cucumber and lemon water
Add a few slices of lemon to your DASH cucumber sparking water to add vitamin C and essential minerals into an already power-packed antioxidant-rich drink.
Cucumber and mint water
For extra digestion benefits, reach for a cucumber and mint drink or try adding a few spearmint or peppermint leaves to your cucumber water.
Cucumber water and pomegranate
Denmark Mixologist Humberto Marques agrees that cucumber and melon works well as a common fruit flavour pairing, but has taken pairing flavour combos one step further by experimenting with lesser-known fruits for an intriguing flavourful kick. Will you be trying the pomegranate addition next?
For an easy way to add the benefits of cucumber water into your day, try DASH’s canned sparkling cucumber water. With no calories, sugar or sweetener, DASH is just carbonated spring water that’s infused with real cucumber - it’s the perfect refreshing combination of hydration and flavour.
