I had never heard of people drinking pickle juice to relieve cramping.
There’s even someone who bottles the stuff and can’t make enough to expand his business – his sales are up over 54% in the last year!
A study done at BYU says “Subjects exercised to the point of mild dehydration and had cramps induced. Those who drank pickle juice felt relief within 85 seconds, almost twice as fast as water or other sports drinks.”
So the next time you have a charlie horse in your leg, put your lips on a dill pickle jar and chug!
