Refreshing Cucumber Lime Cooler

This drink is an excellent way to cool off during summer. It is loaded with electrolytes and cell-replenishing, hydrating nutrients. Cucumbers are a great way to get in B vitamins which provide a quick pick-me-up during the day. They are also 95% water which helps flush out toxins and keeps the body well hydrated. Cucumbers also contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol. These three lignans have been linked with a reduced risk of several cancer types, including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and prostate cancer.

Coconut water and limes replenish crucial electrolytes lost during the day (mostly during sweating and moving around), and mint helps ease the digestive tract to reduce bloating and getting rid of stomach aches. Mint also clears up skin disorders like acne, and is a great cleanser of the blood and for getting rid of bad breath.
