The Benefits of Pickles

I have been hearing a lot recently about all the benefits pickles have. Pickles, yes, that household staple and can be found in a lot of our homes.


Recently, though, pickle juice has been touted as a nutritional superfood and a low-calorie sports drink. You can even buy it by the bottle—sans pickles.


However, pickle juice is also high in sodium: A 3.5-ounce serving can contain roughly 500 mg of sodium, if not more. That's a large slice of the recommended daily intake (2300 mg) for the mineral.


Sodium can be benefitial to some people and in some circumstances, but it can also contribute to high blood pressure and other health problems.


Benefits of Pickles:


Athletic performance

Pickle juice has been called a natural Gatorade, and it's been utilized by athletes looking to cut down on sugary sports drinks. It is true that athletes might benefit from pickle juice because of its high sodium content, Cynthia Sass, RD, Health contributing nutrition editor, tells Health.


Muscle cramps

A 2010 study from North Dakota State University found that muscle cramps could be resolved in a minute and a half with 1.5 oz of pickle juice for every 100 pounds of body weight.


Hydration

Pickles are very high in sodium, which can be great for increasing hydration before and after a workout.


Relief from stomach aches

This is because some stomach pain is caused by low acidity, which the addition of vinegar can restore.


Hangover helper

Pickle juice might also be the answer for your hangovers because of their water and sodium content, which can help restore electrolytes.


Of course, I am not recommending drinking to the extent of having a hangover. But if you do find yourself with a bit of blah feeling after a night of too many drinks, some pickle juice or pickles but just be the cure.
