Pickle juice – that’s right, gargle pickle juice for immediate, lasting relief. As unusual as it sounds, pickle juice is an effective remedy for sore throats and can actually help you heal!
Does Pickle Juice Actually Treat a Sore Throat?
You may be slightly skeptical about gargling pickle juice to treat your sore throat, but it works. This remedy is one that is often passed down among families, so it has a whole repertoire of anecdotal evidence backing it up. Plus, we know when you try it, you’ll be able to tell the difference too.
How pickle juice works:
Pickle juice contains two main ingredients that make it an effective treatment for sore throats – vinegar and salt. These ingredients function to cleanse the throat, fight infection, and reduce inflammation. Vinegar even helps balance out the body’s pH to establish a more controlled level of health and wellness.
How to use pickle juice:
You can use pickle juice in two different ways as a treatment – drinking or gargling. (Those with slightly weaker stomachs will want to stick with gargling.) Get 2 tablespoons of pickle juice from the pickle jar and either gargle it or drink it up to three times a day.
Even if you are not a pickle-lover, you should give this remedy a try. The combined vinegar and salt in pickle juice make it the perfect treatment for a nasty sore throat.
