The liquid contains probiotics which can help to keep your gut bacteria in balance. Skoda said you could find probiotics in refrigerated pickles that are not vinegar-based.
Pickle juice can also help with blood sugar regulation. Studies show that vinegar can help prevent spikes and dips in blood sugar and can support weight loss.
