Pickle Juice Sport

Anybody tried this stuff? Claims to have 15% more electrolytes than gatorade and to eliminate leg cramps. According to the website it is made from real pickle juice and contains over 1600 mg of sodium and vitamns C and E. I remember back in high school the trainers would hand us a bottle of pickle juice if we were suffering from leg cramps. I can only see this product as useful on really hot humid days when the rider looses fluid through excessive sweating. What do you guys think?

Waste of money, but does work for the most part.

Step 1: Buy a jar of pickles
Step 2: Eat pickles and drink the juice
Step 3: Save money

it's disgusting. You're much better off with a sugar free supplement that does the same thing.
