Cool as Cucumber is a phrase that means extremely calm and relaxed. It is often said of someone who has the ability to control their emotions.
This phrase may have originated from the fact that even in hot weather, the inside of cucumbers are approximately 20 degrees cooler than the outside air.
This is because cucumber have a lot of water in them. A cucumber also contains thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6, and vitamin A.
One cup of cucumber provides around 11 percent of the daily allowance for vitamin K. Cucumbers also contain lignans. Research suggests that these may decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and several types of cancer.
