What Your URINE COLOR Says about Your Health

Discover how urine color can be used as an indicator of what’s going on deeper inside your body.

0:00 Introduction: Urine colors explained
0:34 Clear urine
1:14 Normal urine color
1:34 Red urine
2:11 Orange urine
2:42 Blue urine/green urine
3:02 Dark brown urine
3:11 Foamy urine
3:55 Cloudy urine

Today, we’re going to talk about how the color of your urine can tell you what’s going on inside your body. Urine is filtered blood. Nephrons recycle good materials back into the blood and remove toxins and waste through your urine.

If you have clear urine, you’re drinking too much water. Too much water dilutes sodium and makes you dehydrated. Hydration is achieved with the right amount of electrolytes and the right amount of water. Only drink water when thirsty, especially when you’re not working out or sweating.

Normal urine color should be amber, yellow, or straw-colored. The yellow color comes from a pigment in your blood.

Red or pink urine usually signifies blood. This can be caused by a kidney stone, infection, or something more serious. Menstruation can also contaminate the urine, turning it pink. Always seek help from your doctor if you suspect that you have blood in your urine.

Orange urine or fluorescent yellow urine is usually the result of synthetic vitamins, especially B vitamins. It can also be the result of dyes from certain medications. Orange urine can also signify underlying gallbladder or liver issues, but this is not very common.

Blue urine is caused by methylene blue, certain medications, and artificial colors. Sometimes, asparagus can turn your urine green!

Dark brown urine means you’re dehydrated and need more fluids. Very dark brown urine could potentially point toward a liver problem.

If your urine has a normal color but is foamy, your protein consumption may be too high. Foamy urine may also potentially be caused by chronic kidney disease. Foamy urine often occurs in diabetics. If you have foamy urine, try cutting your protein intake to see if it helps.

Cloudy urine usually signifies infection. Most UTIs are caused by E. coli bacteria. Too much sugar in the diet can feed this bacteria.

    A few years ago my dad phoned me up panicking about his urine being pink/red.
    I asked him if he had urgency or pain when going or a higher temperature thinking it could be a UTI. He said no I feel fine, none of that.
    I asked if his appetite was ok. He said yep fine in fact I ate nearly a whole jar of pickled beetroot earlier on.
    I literally said “think about it dad”.
    After a long pause he burst out laughing and said “oh it’s the beetroot”!
    I said yes dad, cut back on the beetroot and see how you “mend”.

    • @jimdent351 on April 3, 2024 at 2:41 pm

      I figured that out when I was a kid. I would drink the beet juice and the pee was much darker than pink. It was dark red, and too much purple Kool-Aid made for green pee

    • @DJRenee on April 3, 2024 at 2:12 pm

      I always tell people know what exactly what you are taking. Do consistent and regular blood work. And cycle off supplements. Taking preferably every other day or at least breaking every single weekend Friday to Sunday and resuming Monday. Also try to water fast for 36 hours as well during the off weekend

    • @DJRenee on April 3, 2024 at 2:13 pm

      And most supplements are meant to be taken only 3 months at a time. Which is just about how often you should do extensive blood work.

    • @carlwilletts343 on April 3, 2024 at 3:28 pm

      The B12 supplements I took about a year ago used to produce the orangey colour. It was quite disturbing at first. Thankfully, the ones I take now don’t do that.

      Riboflavin is what makes it bright yellow (flav in Latin means yellow).
