    I saw this guy at work who carried around a big jug of water every day with lemon wedges and cucumber slices in it and I asked him about it. I guess you put them in there overnight and it supposedly tastes really great and has some health benefits. I googled it and it seems like a pretty popular thing to do, would probably be a good way to drink enough water every day.

    Doesn't lemon in your water make you urinate more often?

    Nothings wrong with it, this just tastes good and cucumbers and lemon are thought to have some helpful properties. How scientific that is I don't know, but it's really refreshing and a cucumber costs about 70 cents so thats good enough for me.

    Reported Health Benefits Of Cucumbers:

    1. Cucumber is best natural diuretic known, secreting and promoting the flow of urine.
    2. Helps in kidney and urinary bladder disease.
    3. Liver disease
    4. Pancreatic disease
    5. The potassium content of cucumber makes it highly useful for conditions of high and low blood pressure.
    6. Cucumber contains erepsin, the enzyme that helps to digest protein.
    7. The high silicon and sulphur content of the cucumber is said to promote the growth of hair, especially when the juice of the cucumber is added to the juice of carrot, lettuce and spinach.
    8. A mixture of cucumber juice with carrot juice is said to be beneficial for rheumatic conditions resulting from excessive uric acid in the body.
    9. Cucumber juice is also valuable for helping diseases of the teeth, gums, especially in cases of pyorrhea.
    10. The high mineral content of this vegetable also helps to prevent splitting of nails of the fingers and toes.
    11. Cucumber, radish and bitter gourd are beneficial in diabetes.

    If you vary from this at all, it becomes poisonous, be careful.

    Ok I made mine in a gallon jug. I used one whole small lemon and half of a cucumber. It actually tastes pretty good. I read you can also reuse the stuff in the jug two or three times as well.
