Description

Biodynamic cucumber is a useful vegetable for the skin, it refreshes and gives elasticity. Cultivated according to a model of sustainable development, Demeter, that helps to preserve the ecosystem, it has exceptional organoleptic and nutritional qualities.

Cucumber is composed of about 95% water and for this reason is considered an excellent ally of those who need to purify the body. It has 4 main properties: purifying, refreshing, anti-catarrals and emollient.

Cucumber helps to lose weight thanks to the content of tartaric acid, a substance that prevents carbohydrates taken with the diet from turning into fat.

Biodynamic agriculture adopts techniques that respect natural ecological balances:

  • defence against harmful insects is carried out with the use of useful insects;
  • the fertility of the soil is maintained and enhanced with natural fertilizers obtained from the heaps of manure and agronomic practices such as green manure;
  • weed protection is carried out without any pesticides, using mechanical, agronomic and physical techniques.

Cucumber is an environmentally sensitive veg, so it is best to store it at a temperature just below the ambient temperature and consume it quickly.

In ancient times cucumbers were used to lower the fever and to ward off intestinal worms.

Cucumbers are also used as a beauty cure: they help to reduce bags, dark circles, to lighten spots on the skin and to soothe sunburn.

They are also a good remedy against itching.
