There's a world of possibilities just waiting to be explored in this compact oval plant.

Irregardless, cucumber's immense amount of vitamins, proteins, and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron, and its rich supply of water has made it one of the most widely cultivated plants. Whether laid on the eyes at a spa or laid on a bed of salad, cucumbers protect and strengthen your body inside and out.
