According to Medical Daily, pickle juice is healthy and can be used to treat a variety of issues, including heartburn and muscle cramps. Medical Daily notes that pickle juice can also help rebuild electrolytes following a workout.

According to Medical Daily, when heartburn is an issue, a couple of sips of pickle juice can help ease discomfort. Medical Daily warns, however, that for certain people, the vinegar contained in pickle juice can actually cause heartburn to worsen.

According to NBC News, pickle juice contains high doses of magnesium and vinegar, which may help reduce cramps from working out or other exercise. Pickle juice is also effective in quickly rebuilding electrolytes and replacing fluid lost from sweating because it contains high levels of sodium, according to Medical Daily.
