It’s something athletes have been drinking for years but can now be found on the shelves of health food stores for everyone to enjoy. Here are just a few reasons you should be drinking pickle juice.
Pickle juice contains potassium which reduces muscles cramping and is packed full of electrolytes helping you to rehydrate after your workout. Drink it straight from the pickle bottle or buy bottled pickle juice. Or drink it any time you need to replenish your fluids, like on a humid summer day.
Pickling is a different process than fermentation, but the cucumbers are pickled in vinegar—and vinegar is fermented. This means you can enjoy all the digestive benefits of eating and drinking fermented foods by drinking 8 ounces or so of pickle juice each day. It might sound a bit weird at first but for many pickle juice becomes a beverage that they crave.
Feel free to eat a pickle or two while you’re at it but take a few swigs of the juice in the bottle while you’re at it. Both the pickles and juice are packed full of antioxidant vitamins C and E which are the perfect way to boost your immunity.
If it’s not for you it’s not for you but at least give it a try before you decide!
