Strange But True Fitness Tips #4: Drink Pickle Juice

November 12, 2014 1 min read

You may be accustomed to adding olive juice to your martini, but perhaps pickle juice is the best thing to drink. Pickle juice--also known as brine--is a mixture of salt and vinegar. If you are working hard on a hot day, pickle juice is actually one of the best things to drink. The sodium in the juice will replace the sodium that you have lost during exercise, preventing muscle cramps and replenishing electrolytes. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="630"] Source: dailycaller.com[/caption] One nutritionist and trainer [1] recommends drinking between 4 and 8 ounces of pickle juice 45 minutes before working out, along with a large glass of water. He also recommends drinking between 4 and 6 ounces of the stuff after working out, as the sodium will help to replenish what your body has lost. Bonus:If you have pineapple juice handy, down a cup as well. It contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps to pull lactic acid from the muscles. Eliminating post-workout lactic acid helps to reduce inflammation, speeding up muscle repair!
