Other Side Effects of Eating Cucumber:

  • It can make you gassy: While cucumber helps in digestion and constipation, it can also result in excess gas, according to a report in Eat This Not That. “Cucumbers contain cucurbitacin, a compound found in other fruits and vegetables including pumpkin, squash, and watermelon. Cucurbitacin results in the bitter taste found in cucumbers and is the cause of gassiness and indigestion. These uncomfortable symptoms may occur if you eat too many cucumbers at a time,” read the report.
  • Excess discharge of fluids: Cucumber is loaded with potassium and antioxidants, but it should be eaten mindfully. While it will keep you hydrated, it may harm your electrolytic balance, going overboard with kheera can leave you dehydrated.
  • Triggers Sinusitis: Sinus infection also known as sinusitis happens when your nasal passage is inflamed and infected. If you are a patient, then it’s best to eat this veggie mindfully.
  • Skin allergy: According to a study by the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology people who are allergic to ragweed pollen, melons, chamomile tea, bananas, and sunflower seeds can experience skin allergy after eating cucumber.
