Pickle Juice Benefit #3: Relaxes Muscles

Morgan Swofford for LittleThings

If you’re someone who works out or gets muscle cramps pretty regularly, you may have heard the term “electrolytes” thrown around.

Electrolytes, micronutrients that help keep our synapses firing, get lost when we sweat or otherwise lose water.

Without them, our muscles cramp up and stop responding as well.

Fortunately, pickle juice is packed with electrolytes like sodium and potassium, so diluting a few spoonfuls into some water can recharge your body the same way a sports drink might, and, as described in a New York Times article, will stop cramping in its tracks.
