Benefits
Cucumber flushes out toxins and rehydrates your cells (89).
Mint aids the smooth flow of bile from the liver to the small intestine to break down fats. It also relaxes the stomach muscles and adds flavor (90).
Watermelon (or cucumber) contains citrulline that aids the kidneys in flushing out ammonia (91).
Coriander leaves are rich in vitamins A and K. They treat indigestion, cure skin and menstrual disorders, maintain blood sugar and cholesterol, and improve vision (92).
Black pepper improves digestion and is a good source of vitamin E (93).
