Hello everyone. I'm going to ask a question that I think I know the answer to, but I just want to make sure. I would have put it in a different forum, but there isn't another one specific to this sort of question.

The multivitamin regimine that I'm on turns my urine a bright, bright yellow. Which, from the research I've performed, is normal. It is just an excess of B vitamins that our body doesn't need that is passed out through the bladder.

My major question is, is that healthy? I mean, is is healthy for our bladders to hold such flourescent yellow urine? LOL. I'm just a worry-wort. I mean, I drink all the water I should daily, but I tend not to drink a lot when I take my vitamins, for I take them right before I eat my morning cereal. I don't know why I am worried about this, but ever since my ordeal I watch my urine like a hawk.

Hey G,

I know that any other colored Urine than crystal clear is a little frightening to me, including deep yellow from vitamins.  I don't know the answer to your question,  but it's a good question.

Have you ever noticed that even Vitamin fortified cereal will affect the color of your urine?.

I wonder too, if yellow is good, but clear is better. :-/
