Many sports athletes in the past have drank pickle juice to help stop and relieve cramping. Some believed it whereas some thought it was just phooey. But now many athletes are taking to it and taking to it big time. Why? In the past many used it because they had the belief that it would help them to relieve cramping, but now a test that was recently conducted at the university of BYU has proven this theory to be fact.
What is truly remarkable is pickle juice actually has been shown that within 85 seconds of drinking it the cramping stops. The reason for this is because pickle juice is a natural source of sodium and it also contains other electrolytes that are beneficial. So if you are a serious athlete and you want to prevent cramping just go to the refrigerator open the door and down some pickle juice.
