Herlina Dimiati, Fahmi, Muhammad Ridwan.

Abstract
Normal blood pressure is systolic blood pressure <120 mmHg and diastolic pressure <80 mmHg. There are two abnormalities in blood pressure, hypertension or high blood pressure and hypotension or low blood pressure. The most common case is hypertension with a very high number of deaths in the world. One way to help lower blood pressure is consuming cucumber juice. This study aims to determine the effect of cucumber juice with sugar and cucumber juice without sugar to blood pressure in medical students of Universitas Syiah Kuala. This type of research is an experimental study with a pre-experimental one group pre and post-test design. This study used non-probability sampling technique with purposive sampling method. The data were processed using independent T-test statistics on 88 research samples. The results of the reduction in systolic blood pressure are at 15 minutes (p-value 0.139), 30 minutes (p-value 0.656), and 60 minutes (p-value 0.904). Then the results of the decrease in diastolic blood pressure are at 15 minutes (p-value 0.603), 30 minutes (p-value 0.678), and 60 minutes (p-value 0.637). From these results obtained p-value> 0.05, which means there are differences in the insignificant effect of cucumber juice with a mixture of sugar and cucumber juice without sugar mixture.

Key words: blood Pressure, Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L), medical students
