Benefits of Eating Pickles
We all know that pickles taste good, but did you know that they have many health benefits, too? Made from cucumbers packed with nutrients, eating pickles may be better for you than you think! Here are some of our favorite reasons to eat pickles:
Can help curb sugar spikes: Pickle juice is made with a high concentration of vinegar, which is excellent at helping keep blood sugar levels at a more consistent baseline. Many people who struggle with blood sugar issues take vinegar to help with these issues, so eating pickles soaked in the stuff may be the next best step!
Could help with digestion: Pickles have a ton of probiotics in them, which are excellent for gut health. Probiotics work in several ways, including helping to balance the good bacteria in your stomach, promote heart health, and even improve some mental health issues.
May help fight diseases: Thanks to cucumbers’ high beta-carotene content, your body may be able to fight off harmful diseases better. Your body can convert the antioxidant into vitamin A, which has countless health benefits that help your body reduce the risk of strokes, cancer, heart disease, and other issues.
Could ease muscle cramps: Many athletes and other active people swear that pickle juice is the cure for relieving muscle cramps by replacing electrolytes. While there is not much research on the topic yet, we say: don’t knock it ’til you try it!
The History of Pickles
Over 4,000 years ago, ancient people began soaking cucumbers in acidic brine to preserve the vegetable. People added salt to the mixture to further help with the preservation. In a time without refrigerators, people made every effort to preserve food in any way they could. Many explorers like Christopher Columbus loved to travel with the delicious treat because it could survive the long journeys, plus it was always tasty!
Pickling itself is one of the oldest forms of food preservation, with roots dating back to 2400 B.C., according to some scholars. In 50 B.C., “Queen Cleopatra of Egypt credited the pickles in her diet with contributing to her health and legendary beauty. Meanwhile, Cleopatra’s lover Julius Caesar and other Roman emperors gave pickles to their troops to eat in the belief that they would make them strong”, according to History.com.
