It doesn’t end with pickles, which we always have on our table in winter, but everything else. No matter which pickle you like, it’s not just about eating the pickle itself. The pickle juice is also extremely good for your health and is also delicious. We are sure that you will not be able to stop drinking it after learning its benefits. Bon appetit.
Good for muscle contractions
Believe it or not, many athletes prefer to drink pickle juice after their daily workouts. The reason is that it is good for muscle and joint pain and relieves cramps. Attention sports lovers!
Perfect for dehydration
Pickle juice is like a superhero in case of dehydration, that is, when the body loses excessive water.
In this case, consuming plenty of water is of course the first thing that comes to mind, but we have a much better option. Since it contains both sodium and potassium, pickle juice not only replaces the water lost by the body faster, but also helps you stay that way for longer. Considering that we remove sodium and potassium from the body by sweating, it has the ability to return them to the body.
Strengthens your immune system
We need to keep the immune system strong during the winter months when we are most vulnerable to viruses. Pickle juice, which contains antioxidants as well as vitamins C and E, works hard to protect your health by strengthening your immune system.
Helps you lose weight
The acetic acid found in pickle juice has properties such as reducing fat accumulation and helping the metabolism work faster. Considering that its main ingredient is vinegar and we know that vinegar is effective in losing weight, it is not unreasonable.
Keeps blood sugar balanced
Again, due to the vinegar it contains, pickle juice balances the blood sugar level after meals. However, it is important to drink only a moderate amount
It is known that drinking pickle juice in the morning relieves intestinal problems. For this reason, it is one of the saviors of those who suffer from constipation. In fact, let’s be precise, pickled white cabbage juice is much more assertive in this regard.
Contains many minerals that the body needs
Pickles and their juice contain minerals that are very important for the body such as iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium and zinc. If you cannot consume vegetables and fruits regularly, you can meet some of your needs by drinking pickle juice.
Good for indigestion
The high amount of fiber found in pickles has many positive effects on the digestive system. In this respect, pickle juice helps those who often suffer from indigestion problems to get rid of these problems.
Good for nervous system diseases such as Alzheimer’s
Thanks to the garlic in the pickle, our nervous system is also strengthened. It is known that the materials called flavonoids found in garlic are extremely beneficial for Alzheimer’s disease.
Helps with nausea
Did you know that pickle juice actually soothes nausea? Vinegar helps balance the pH in your stomach and calms stomach rumblings. Salt water also helps the body recover from dehydration after vomiting.
Apart from these health benefits we have mentioned, we can also benefit from pickle juice in many different areas. Here are some of the other ways you can use it;
Helps you preserve food longer
Pickle juice is literally a delicious brine designed to preserve fresh vegetables like cucumbers for months. There’s no reason why you can’t continue using brine just because you’re out of cucumbers. Instead, use the remaining juice to quickly pickle leftover vegetables like cabbage and carrots. This way you will be able to store it for a few more days.
Soothes irritated skin
If you have an itchy bug bite or annoying rash, try applying some pickle juice on it to relieve the itching. Everyone’s favorite solution, scratching, will only damage the skin. The wonderful juice of the pickle comes to the rescue by balancing the itching with a slightly acidic burning sensation. Just be sure to layer some moisturizer on top as salt water can cause some skin dryness.
Revitalizes potted plants
If your indoor plants are facing the ground, a healthy portion of pickle juice can revitalize and uplift them. Plants need a lot of potassium to continue growing happily and healthily. Sometimes they even struggle on their own to produce enough, especially when there is only so little land available to them. Adding potassium in the form of pickle juice (as it is combined with acid to balance the pH of the soil) will greatly accelerate the growth of plants.
Cleans copper pans
Copper pots and pans may look beautiful hanging in your kitchen, but they may not look so beautiful when their color starts to turn green. This process, called oxidation, happens when copper comes into contact with air. But it’s easy to reverse this with a little sodium-acid solution. Sodium and acid, that is, salt and vinegar, are already mixed in the pickle juice. So cleaning your kitchen is a perfect way to use it.
