the more yellow the more concentrated it is

Yes, very true. The lighter the colour the more water content, which is ultimately what you should aim for.

Eat lots of asparagus. That'll clear things up.

Yes, it's true, but if you take a vitamin B supplement, your urine will go a very intense, bright yellow for a good part of the day. I've heard a doc on tv say that as long as your urine is clear (colourless) by bedtime, you're drinking enough water.

Hi I don't know about the B supplements but I do know that if you have a high intake of vitamin C that urine will bw an intense yellow colour.

Most vitamins will give your urine an almost flourescent colour after taking them.

Eating asparagus makes my urine smell like an old rusty pipe. Anyone else?

Eating old rusty pipes will do that too.

many different vitamins can make your urine more yellow. Your body will get rid of the excess vitamins that your body doesnt need. Drinking more water is good for the skin, and the plumbing. Now if you want your urine to be a shocking red or pink, eat lots of beets. lol. My daughter got into a jar of them when she was little, and ate half a jar. I thought she was peeing blood. It was a relief to find out it was only the beets. lol

If your sugar is a very dark yellow, your sugar is high. Drink lots of water!
