Six Reasons Why You Should Drink Pickle Juice

What's your go-to drink on a hot day? Water? Maybe lemonade? Here's another option: A health and wellness expert posted a list of reasons to drink PICKLE JUICE. Here are the six benefits she came up with . . .



1. It's good after a workout. Like Gatorade, it's full of electrolytes, including potassium and magnesium. Another one of those is salt though, so be careful. One cup of pickle juice has about a third of the sodium we're supposed to have in a whole day.



2. It might help regulate your blood sugar. There's evidence that drinking a small amount of pickle juice every day can keep insulin levels in check.



3. Some people claim it's a hangover cure. If it doesn't make you PUKE, the electrolytes might help you re-hydrate.



4. Some types are loaded with probiotics, or healthy bacteria for your gut. It has to be a fancy brand though, because most pickle juice is pasteurized, which kills bacteria.



5. It might help with muscle cramps. A study a while back looked into it. People's cramps went away faster when they drank a third-of-a-cup of pickle juice. They think it might have to do with all the vinegar in it.



6. It could help you lose weight. In a 2009 study, people lost more weight when they drank a little bit every day. Again, it might be the vinegar.
