    This information was in The New York Times recently as part of their
    "Spotlight on the Home" series that highlighted creative and fanciful ways
    to solve common problems.

    1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one
    cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin
    B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium
    and Zinc.

    2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick
    up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and
    Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for
    hours.

    3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a
    cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a
    soothing, spa-like fragrance.

    4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in
    a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long.
    The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent
    undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the
    area.

    5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or
    to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem
    area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the
    collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing
    the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

    6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber
    slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free.
    Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish
    essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium,
    avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

    7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge?
    Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European
    trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

    8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you
    don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber
    over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that
    not only looks great but also repels water.

    9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice
    and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

    10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the
    spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water,
    the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling
    water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma
    that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students
    during final exams.

    11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints?
    Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your
    tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemcials will
    kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

    12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless
    steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to
    clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine,
    but is won't leave streaks and won't harm you fingers or fingernails while
    you clean.

    13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and
    slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and
    markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

    Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for better and safer
    ways to solve life's everyday problems..

    Tango lina virutubisho vingi na madini muhimu sana katika mwili wa binadamu. Kwa mujibu wa wataalamu wetu, miongoni mwa virutubisho na madini mengine yaliyomo, tango ni chanzo kizuri cha Kashiamu, Chuma, Phosforas, Potasiamu, Zinki, Kambalishe, Vitamini B complex, Vitamini C na Vitamin E.

    FAIDA ZAKE MWILINI
    Unaweza kusema kuwa kirutubisho cha ‘Potasiamu' ndiyo chakula cha moyo, kwa sababu ‘potasiamu' ndiyo inayouwezesha moyo kupiga mapigo yake ya kawaida na kuustawisha. Ulaji wa matunda na vyakula vyenye kiwango kikubwa cha ‘potasiamu' kama tango, ni muhumi sana kwa mtu mwenye matatizo ya moyo, presha ya kupanda na matatizo ya mapigo ya moyo.

    Aidha, tango linaaminika kupunguza kiwango cha mafuta mabaya mwilini (cholesterol), huimarisha misuli ya mwili na bila kusahau husaidia usagaji wa chakula tumboni hivyo kuondoa tatizo la ukosefu wa choo.

    Virutubisho vilivyomo kwenye tango pia, hutoa afueni kwa mtu mwenye matatizo ya ini, kongosho, figo na matatizo katika kibofu cha mkojo. Wataalamu wetu wanatueleza pia kuwa tango lina kirutubisho kinachojulikana kama ‘erepsin' ambacho husaidia uzalishaji wa ‘amino acids' ambazo ni muhimu kwa uzalishaji wa protini mwilini.

    Vile vile, tango lina kiwango kingi cha Vitamin C, hivyo kuwa na uwezo mkubwa wa kuondoa matatizo yatokanayo na ukosefu wa Vitamin C, kama vile kutokwa na damu kwenye fizi, upungufu wa damu kwa watoto wachanga na kuota meno na mifupa vibaya.

    KINGA YA SARATANI
    Pengine faida kubwa kuliko zote unazoweza kuzipata kwa kula tango au juisi yake mara kwa mara ni kinga dhidi ya saratani za aina mbalimbali. Jambo hili linatokana na ukweli kwamba tango lina kiwango kikubwa cha ‘alkaline' (uchachu). Kwa kawaida ‘seli' za saratani ‘haziwezi kuishi' kwemye mazingira yenye uchachu, hivyo tango kinga dhidi ya saratani.

    DAWA YA MAGONJWA YA NGOZI

    Tangu enzi na enzi, tango limekuwa likitumika katika masuala ya urembo wa ngozi, watu wengi hutumia tango kwa njia mbalimbali kutunza ngozi zao na kupendezesha sura zao. Hata baadhi ya vipodozi visivyo na madhara, hutengenezwa kutokana na tango.

    Ulaji wa tango na unywaji wa juisi yake mara kwa mara, huondoa matatizo mengi ya ngozi yaliyomo ndani na nje ya mwili. Utakapotumia juisi ya tango kwa muda wa wiki mbili hadi tatu mfululizo, utakuwa na ngozi nyororo na yenye afya kushinda hata mtu anayetumia vipodozi.

    JINSI YA KUANDAA JUISI YA TANGO

    Ni rahisi sana, chukua tango lako moja au zaidi, lioshe vizuri na limenye, kisha katakata vipande tayari kwa kusaga, ama kwa mashine (blender/juicer) au kwa kutwanga kwenye kinu maalum, changanya na maji masafi kiasi ili kupata juisi kiasi cha glasi moja.

    Unaweza kuweka sukari kiasi kidogo sana (kisizidi kijiko kimoja kwa glasi) ili kupata ladha au weka asali kijiko kidogo kimoja. Utapata matokeo mazuri na ya haraka kama ukinywa juisi yako kila siku asubuhi kabla ya kula kitu chochote.

    Ili kutibu matatizo ya ngozi uliyonayo au magonjwa mengine kama tulivyoyaeleza hapo juu, kunywa juisi hiyo kwa muda wa wiki mbili hadi 4 mfululizo na angalia matokeo yake. Kwa ukuwaji wa afya yako, weka mazoea ya kunywa japo mara mbili au tatu kwa wiki.

    Vile vile, unaweza kujiwekea mazoea ya kula tango kwa njia mbalimbali kama vile kuchanganya na saladi, kachumbari au kutafuna lenyewe mara kwa mara, kwani faida zake mwilini ni nyingi.
