BENEFITS OF CUCUMBER AND MINT

¬†Lemons themselves are high in Vitamin C, and since you’re unlikely to eat lemons the way you’d eat an orange, drinking this lemon cucumber concoction is a great way to top up on this immune-boosting vitamin.Mint is also a rich source of Vitamin C, as well as important minerals like calcium and magnesium.
