What are the health benefits of Cucumber?

Cucumbers are not high in vitamins, minerals or polyphenols, based on the analysis done so far by the USDA and others. 

Perhaps the greatest health benefit that cucumber affords is the chlorophyll content on the skin, which in lab tests has been shown to neutralise toxins particularly those found in tobacco smoke.

See the full nutrition afforded by cucumber and the link to the science on chlorophyll below.
