What our customers are saying...
“I’m a runner (or a biker, or a basketball player, or a martial artist, or a weight lifter, you name it) and I drink the juice to rehydrate and keep from cramping up.”
Pickle juice is full of electrolytes – up to 10 times more than leading sports drinks. Exercising hard requires electrolytes to rehydrate, and is especially important to avoid cramping. Our pickle juice has been proven to relieve a muscle cramp in less than a minute. One of our favorite stories is about a high school quarterback who cramped up really bad during a game and had to be benched. A father – FROM THE OPPOSING TEAM – happened to have our pickle juice on hand and told his mother to have him drink some right away. 38 seconds after drinking a couple swigs, the player was back on his feet, cramp free and ready to go. That team went on to win the game. That father was the hero to the opposing team, but took a good lashing from the home team! All in good fun of course.
“I get muscle cramps at night when I’m sleeping, and pickle juice helps relieve those cramps.”
We have heard from numerous customers that they drink pickle juice before bed to keep those awful night time leg cramps at bay. Vinegar can help with rapid pain relief, and also has been thought to stop the nerve signals that make muscles cramp up. It is believed to be the vinegar, not the sodium, in pickle juice that alleviates cramps. Several of our customers report that drinking a pouch before bed either significantly reduces, or even completely eliminates, restless leg symptoms and leg cramps at night.
“Drinking Juce helped with my altitude sickness.”
Juce originates in Littleton, Colorado, where we are already a mile closer to the sun. When people visit Colorado, especially to take in our gorgeous mountains for hiking or skiing, many find themselves suffering from altitude sickness. We have given pouches to people to see how they feel, and most expressed much gratitude for having their symptoms alleviated. It works much the same way as a hangover remedy, in that it aids in rehydration, electrolyte balance, the capsaicin helps the headaches, the dill helps calm the tummy, and in general you feel pretty good. The most important thing to remember in high altitudes is stay hydrated!
Talk about your brand
Our 4 oz Juce pouches are the perfect amount for many recipes, and you don’t have to drain your jar of pickles to get it. Sure, you could just eat your pickles faster, but just in case you don’t want to, you can use a Juce pouch for some of these ideas (and more of your own):
Add it to your bread recipe instead of water
Add some to your potato or tuna salad
Make pickle juice ice cubes to use in your Bloody Mary’s (and might we recommend using Trü Pickles’ Smokin Mary Mix for an amazing Bloody Mary!)
Use a Juce pouch to make a pickleback, or a dirty martini (aka, a Trü-tini)
Try making a pickle juice slushy by partially freezing a pouch
Make pickle popsicles with JucePour some over shaved ice for a pickle snow cone
“I drink pickle juice to cure a hangover.”
Yep, there ARE people out there that overindulge (not you, of course) and know that pickle juice is the cure. Hangovers have multiple components. Dehydration is what leads to the headaches. Your body tries to restore your fluid levels, and your blood vessels narrow. You may think you are consuming a whole lot of fluids while drinking (and if you add cranberry juice, orange juice, pineapple and coconut, etc, that makes it healthier, right?) but alcohol is a diuretic, which makes you have to urinate more frequently, and you lose more water. Pickle juice contains water and salt, which helps with rehydration and replenishment of electrolytes. Vinegar is also thought to help with headaches, and the capsaicin in the cayenne pepper in our Juce (just a little for flavor, not to be spicy) can help as well by helping those blood vessels dilate. Alcohol also irritates your stomach and intestine, and delays the emptying of your stomach contents. It also causes the production of more gastric acid, all of which leads to nausea, bloating and vomiting. Dill is known to help alleviate nausea and upset stomach, and to help with bloating. Vinegar is also known to be good for settling stomachs, despite intuitively thinking that the acid would make it worse. There’s a reason pregnant women crave pickles, it is a natural nausea reliever! Pickle juice also has probiotic properties that helps the gut as well. This makes Juce a great home remedy for hangover recovery. Incidentally, if you use Juce as part of your dirty martini (what we like to call a Trü-tini) or a pickleback shot, you can get a head start on that hangover cure!
“It helps with my menstrual cramps.”
Interestingly, we have had many women tell us that they notice a significant improvement in how they feel during that time of the month by drinking a pouch of Juce. Guys, we can’t guarantee it, but it can’t hurt to keep a few pouches around and slip one to your lady when she isn’t feeling quite herself! When all else fails, you can still have the old standby, throw a package of chocolate into the room and run!
“I just love drinking pickle juice!”
Yes, there are people that just absolutely love drinking pickle juice because they think it’s delicious. No other reason necessary. Juce pouches are a whole lot easier to carry than a jar of pickles! And it’s a lot easier than trying to suck the juice out of the pickle (and we did have one young fan show us how she tried)! We love to hear people say they get made fun of for drinking pickle juice out of the jar, or told they are crazy for liking pickle juice, and now they can wave a Juce pouch at their doubters and prove that it must be more than craziness or it wouldn’t be in a pouch.
