A young woman called Ileana Paules-Bronet decided to give pickle juice a shot. She consumed the juice for seven days and here’s how she felt every day of her pickle juice week:
I felt a little weird about the whole idea of drinking pickle juice. It took me more than 10 minutes to taste pickle juice. I thought it would leave a bad aftertaste in my mouth, but it didn’t!
I loved the taste of pickle juice!
This day I had period cramps. I hoped that drinking pickle juice would relieve them as I read that the juice helps with muscle cramps. And know what?
My period cramps vanished by the end of the day! Thank God for pickle juice!
By this day I didn’t mind drinking pickle juice at all. I got used to that.
I also did some barre this day and expected soreness in my muscles the next day.
Guess what? I didn’t wake up with soreness in my muscles from barre class I had the day before.
This day I was so busy that I almost forgot to drink my shot of pickle juice, but I drank it by the end of the day.
I expected to get muscle cramps from my barre class this day, but I didn’t. Pickle juice works like magic against muscle cramps!
I also got totally used to drinking pickle juice this day.
This day my boyfriend saw me drinking pickle juice, and he was disgusted by that scene!
The final day of my pickle juice adventure. I was happy it came to an end because I wanted to eat pickles like other people.
I must say that pickle juice didn’t make me hydrated during my workouts. It also didn’t improve my gut health.
However, it did protect me from muscle cramps and bad breath!
I would definitely recommend this juice to my friends! I see no negative sides to drinking pickle juice, but only positive sides to that!
I also must say that I would drink the juice again, but only before or after my workout to prevent muscle cramps!
