It's not necessarily a danger sign. You may be simply offloading a high concentration of vitamin C (which, when you over-consume, simply dumps the excess to the urine), or betacarotene, the precursor to vitamin A, and the coloring agent in lots of orange fruits and veggies such as carrots or cantaloupe. Also, a lot of the B-vitamins can have this exact effect. If the urine is clear, this is a good sign and makes the vitamin density the most likely explanation.
It could also mean that you're somewhat dehydrated and you're expelling very rich urine. In that case - rehydrate! :} Note that this works better with liquids that have some electrolytes in them - some salts. These include sports drinks like Gatorade, various juices (such as orange, pineapple or tomato), or simply drinking water and having a banana or two (high in potassium - an electrolyte).
Far less common are cases of kidney problems. But if this is a new phenomenon for you, and has no other symptoms, I wouldn't worry unless it persists.
I would definitely rather be excreting excess vitamins in my bright yellow (normal) urine, than having clear urine and vitamin-starved body cells.
More comments from WikiAnswers contributors:
Bright yellow urine can mean that your body is dehydrated and also it can mean you are highly acidic. Yellow urine indicates that a person is able to flush out acids stored in the body or that a person's body is not able to process the food that he is eating. If it is the first situation it is good. If it is second situation it is bad. Liver does not get any water if taken with meals or shortly afterward. Such water is flushed out of the body faster. One should drink 1 hour before meals to be able to get the water to the liver. Except for this period one should not drink water. Drinking one hours before meals will help water to stay in the body for a longer period and work on the acids and toxins for a longer time.
Taking certain vitamins will turn your urine intensely yellow.
Water, water and more water! Six 8 oz. glasses a day is what is good for you, but even 4-5 will make a difference.
Although this is a commonly mentioned "fact" in the news, there is no scientific evidence behind the "8 glasses of water a day" theory.
Well...there are several ways to do it. However, I MUST tell you that there is an exact way to do it. It is very painful and if not done exactly right, NIACIN CAN KILL YOU!
So, with that being said, if you know that you're gonna have a UA and have several days to prepare it will be much easier and less painful for you. All you have to do is go to your local GNC or any store that carries vitamins or supplements. Buy Niacin 500. DO NOT BUY FLUSH FREE! IT WON'T WORK! about four days prior to your UA, STOP SMOKING COMPLETELY. Take one pill in the morning and one at night. That's 1000mg a day. Your skin will turn bright red and it will burn you worse than any sunburn you've ever had...all over your body. Drink all the water you can stand. Force it down your throat. Drink it until you feel like you're going to vomit, but DO NOT VOMIT. If you vomit, you've just wasted your time. The niacin is going to make you pee a lot. That's good. So will the massive amounts of water. That's also good. Pee as much as possible and whatever you do, DO NOT DRINK ANYTHING EXCEPT WATER! Repeat this process for three to four days before your UA and you WILL pass.
Now, this next method is for EMERGENCY USE ONLY! This method is used when you only have 24 hours before your UA. It is extremely dangerous, 1000x more painful, puts you at risk for overdose, can lead to liver failure, and could kill you. (not joking)
Follow these steps EXACTLY! Now instead of spreading out the dosage over a three or four day period, you are basically compacting three or four days worth of doses into one. Take two Niacin 500. Drink water until you feel like you can't drink anymore...and then drink some more. Every time your glass of water gets empty, fill it back up and keep on chugging. You need to take in as much as you can in 24 hours. At least a gallon. I suggest two or three. Drink all the water you possibly can. Wait 4 hours. Take two more Niacin 500. You'll notice that it doesn't hurt anywhere as near as bad as the first dose. Again...water, water, water. I cannot stress that enough. Everything you pee out you should replace immediately with water. Now this is where your height and weight play a factor. Since I am a larger individual, I take two more four hours after that and keep chugging water. (I'm 215 and 6') If you are a smaller person, STOP AT THE SECOND DOSE! Keep drinking water all night if you can. Keep peeing all you can. Get all of that stuff out. The next day, make sure to keep drinking water. As much as you can and BE SURE YOU PEE AT LEAST THREE TIMES BEFORE YOUR UA! You're now ready to take your UA and YES...you WILL pass. Anybody that tells you anything different, is full of it! I've used this method for years and it works EVERY TIME.
Also, buy a few "at home" drug screens. You can buy them at any local drug store or Wal-Mart. They cost about $15 per test, but it's worth it to know the exact moment when your completely flushed. I suggest buying several just to be sure and to just have some laying around the house.
There you have it. My GUARANTEED method. There IS a way to beat the system and now you know how. You no longer have to live in fear of drug testing. Spread the knowledge and fight the power. Happy job hunting.
To find the value of a gram of gold:
You must first find the spot price of gold (per troy ounce) in your country, then convert to grams.
Thus, if the spot price of gold is $900 per troy ounce and there are about 31.10 grams in a troy ounce, then the math is follows:
$900 x 1 ounce/31.10 grams = $28.94/gram
To find the value of jewelry:
You need to know the karats (weight) of actual gold in the jewelry.
24kt gold is the highest gold karat available and this is basically pure gold. 14kt and 18kt are common in the US, while 22kt gold is sold overseas. If you buy an 18kt piece of jewelry, this means that this jewelry is actually only 75% gold. The remaining 25% is other metals.
So if you have 1 gram of 18kt gold jewelry, you must multiply the price per gram x percentage of gold to find the actual price in grams. $28.94 x .75 = $21.71/gram.
Other factors will also affect the ultimate price, such as workmanship, gemstones, etc.
A gram of gold weighs approximately the same as a dollar bill and at today's price is valued at $100.
These days, there are online calculators available that calculate the true current value of your gold.
Assuming that you're consuming a normal amount of protein and are otherwise healthy and normal, supplements will not have any unwanted side effects. Protein supplements are not a complete dietary replacement. Excessive consumption of protein (300+ grams a day) can have unwanted side effects in the kidney and liver.
(see link below)
Always remember that too much is always bad for our health.so in taking too much protein will harm you too. why don't you add organic food on your diet, it has natural substance that can make you healthy.
Some may had side effects depending on the source of the protein
First consideration is what kind of other stuff is in the protein supplement. Some are full of sugar, and strange artificial ingredients. Does it has artificial sweeteners, artificial flavorings, hidden MSG, etc...
Generally the less ingredients the better, and unless you know it's a good product then go with something plain and made your own drink/smoothie out of it.
Soy protein - heavily processed food, no long resembles true soy protein or anything natural. Unless you know it's a good company I'd just avoid the soy due to heavy processing, and allergenic potential.
Whey protein - also heavily processed except from a few sources that process why from unheated milk. Dr. Mercola sells a truly high quality protein powder from whey on his site (some other professional companies such as Designs For Health also are high quality, but those are only available through health care professionals).
Hemp protein: if you use it please leave in freezer after opening, the omega-3's quickly become rancid in heat. The powder won't freeze in the freezer, as it has not water in it.
There are some plain rice proteins on the market.
Whey protein is used just to supplement one's extra protein in a diet, it is not necessary to use in body-building or weightlifting if you have sufficient protein from your normal diet. However, whey protein is widely used because of its convenience.
they make u taste the food without them u wouldn'd taste the food. They also let you know if what you're eating is poison or if you are alergic to it or if you just don't like it before it enters you're system.
(1) Yes I believe they do .
(2) It all depends upon water or liquid intake . I am celiac and take Vitamins on daily need , in my case it is liquid in take .
It is individually different. I have an immune issue and use a schedule of vitamins/minerals for health issues (pharmacist/dr approved) and I do not find that using either of these increase or decrease my nocturnal urine output. My output is based on the intake of liquids.
Well...I am eating them right at this moment! Unfortunately the packets been thrown away so i can't tell you at the moment. But I know not a lot of it is really chicken!
Hope this helps!
Go foods are mainly composed of foods that contain carbohydrates, which give energy. Examples of Go foods (high-carbohydrate foods) are rice, cake, bread and noodles. Carbohydrates are essential in a healthy diet. Just remember, everything in moderation! Any carbohydrates that your body does not burn will be stored as fat. This is why it's important to incorporate a moderate amount of carbohydrates into your diet rather than a high amount.
Life Extension Foundation (lef.com) sells a supplement made with wheat oil.
To convert grams to micrograms, multiply by a million.
Vitamin K is usually in reference to Vitamin K1, which is also known as phylloquinone, phytomenadione, or phytonadione, and is a derivative of 1,4-naphthoquinone. A subtype exists, Vitamin K2, which is known as menaquinone.
Vitamin E is actually a group of 8 related fat-soluble compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols, of which 4 types exist for each (alpha, beta, gamma, delta). This is why supplements for Vitamin E are often sold as a complex containing more than just one compound. The types you will see most often are gamma-Tocopherol and alpha-Tocopherol. A synthetic water-soluble form of Vitamin E is Tocofersolan.
Supplements that Prevent Water Retention
I do not think think so, fish oil going to help you in improving immune system and help in cold. Better to take dabur chyawanprash, it always keep you away from cold.
No. You can find them at your local drugstore or even WalMart or Walgreens. You can get a prescription for them but it is not necessary unless your doctor thinks you need more folic acid than other women, in which case your doctor will inform you.
yes, by eating more fatty foods
Vitamins can't shorten your height.
Yes they are soluble in water.
Yes, protein is a major source of energy but we also need carbohydrates for energy, that's why athletes eat a lot of pasta before or after an event. Protein would include; cooked chicken, beef, fish, beans, tofu, cottage cheese, yogurt to mention a few.
Niacin ... also called nicotinic acid and Vitamin B3 ... is a chemical compound of
four elements: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen.
Its chemical formula is: C 6 H 5NO 2
Cranberries, like many other foods, are really not a good source of Vitamin K.
No, but the "other ingredients" may contribute. Read the label and google unfamiliar words to find the cause. Also is C is in pill form, consider the liquid used when swallowing. Juice will increase BS and water will not.
