In brief: A lot of salt in it

Pickle-juice tastes sour and because of that people often don't realize it has tremendous amount of salt in it.
The sour/acid masks the tast of salt and so people dont know about the loaded-salt unless reading the label. I would not recommend it as a treatment, rather you should see your doc for an evaulation to find out why you have low BP and better treatment and be prescribed. Good luck.
