Electrolytes, Recovery, And Cramps
Popular workout drinks such as Gatorade and Redbull are full of sugar. Sugar, add this to your cuss word dictionary. What your body really needs is electrolytes and there is no better delivery system than pickle juice. Sodium is necessary in the restoring of electrolytes. The calcium chloride and vinegar in pickle juice deliver the sodium to your body quicker than anything else you could digest. Your body needs electrolytes to survive. Electrolytes are a crucial part of fitness.
What is the purpose of electrolytes? Electrolytes regulate the body’s nerve and muscle function, our body’s hydration, blood pressure, blood pH, and the rebuilding of all damaged tissue. The moral of the story is that drinking pickle juice will prevent cramping, help muscles recover faster, protect muscles from injury and keep you stronger in the gym. (Sorry if I got a little scientific there).

Pickle juice is recommended to be taken as a pre-workout and post-workout. I also advise drinking pickle juice with dinner. The serving size recommend is about three tablespoons. Note, you do not want to drink too much pickle juice! There is too much sodium in pickle juice to be consumed like other sports drinks.
