One of the most healing fruits on Earth. Yes it is a fruit. Really good for flushing kidneys, detoxifying the system, cleansing the bowels, digestive health, contains an enzyme that dissolves tapeworms, and has lots of calcium, magnesium, sulfur (beauty mineral) along with Vitamin E and C. Cucumber juice does wonders for complexion. Buy or grow organic and eat the SKINS TOO, which are very high in silica, minerals and enzymes.
