What does your pee say about you?
As part of a Cleanse (I will tell you about that later) I decided to drink 2L of water a day. For the first time in my life my pee was transparent and odorless. I know all about the beet coloring but transparent?? So I began my research. Have I been peeing the wrong colors all my life?
Apparently the color ranges from pale yellow to deep amber — the result of a pigment called urochrome and how diluted or concentrated the urine is. It can range in color from almost clear (hydrated) to dark orange or yellow (dehydrated). And your pee says more about you then you would think:
- You’re drinking too many liquids. Be careful not to over-hydrate. Shoot for drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day (apparently drinking tea and vegetable fruits are considered in this equation)
- A liver disorder, such as acute viral hepatitis or cirrhosis (however, you would have other signs and symptoms like a yellowing, jaundiced complexion, nausea, vomiting, fever and fatigue).
Bright or neon Yellow:
- Vitamin supplements that are being taken in excess or not being absorbed by your body. Word to the wise: take whole food-based vitamin supplements for better absorption.
- People who eat too many carrots, may see orange urine. Also, too much Vitamin C can turn the urine orange.
Dark yellow or gold:
- Urine with a bluish tint can be caused by a Pseudomonas bacterial infection. It can also be an indication of high levels of calcium.
They’re a rainbow of colors you can pee . Its usually based on 3 main causes
2. Drugs you’ve taken
3. Health Issues
Remember to drink water ( half your body weight in ounces, not much more) Helps flush out toxins and waste products from the body, promotes weight loss, avoids headaches, gives you energy, lowers your risk of a heart attack should I go on…..
