When you get home from an intense sweat session at the gym, what's the first thing you reach for to recover? A protein shake, maybe some Gatorade? Dig a little bit deeper in that fridge next time... and try some pickle juice!
Fitness fans swear that it re-hydrates and helps your body bounce back after a workout. The salty brine contains dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals that can soothe cramps and keep blood sugar levels in check. It’s got the bonus of replacing your electrolytes too. Just be careful about going overboard- because of its high sodium content, too much can actually cause water retention and bloating, increased blood pressure, and overwork your kidneys. Everything in moderation.
