    Green Urine


    I recently got a new multivitamin, and have noticed greenish urine since. Is this because of too much B-vitamins. If so can it cause damage, should I stop taking them?

    My multi (MVP/ZMK) has the same amount of b6 as well as 500mcg of b12 and I don't pee green...are you drinking enough water? Are you taking your multi with food? Which multi are you taking?

    I'm just trying to get the initial questions out there.

    You need 128 oz a day honestly if you are training or anything more than a desk jockey (no offense to any fellow desk jockeys, LOL).

    It seems to vary, I've taken multis that turn my urine Tang orange or fluorescent yellow, but I haven't seen green yet. But I wouldn't be surprised. It typically does this to me only directly after I take it, but by the second bathroom break I'm clear again. Then again I pound me some water.

    it is my understanding, some one please correct me if i am wrong, but your urine is yellow/green.... discolored... b.c. what is happening is when you take you multi your body can simply not absorb all of those vitamins all at once. So the discoloration of your urine is actually you peeing out what you body could not absorb.

    Orange/yellow is normal. I would say green is abnormal because I have never heard anyone say they are pissing green.

    On workout days if you are training the way you should be and taking in enough liquids..your urine should be normal.

    On non training days...my pee always looks like mountain dew.

    It's so common it's usualy referred to as "pak piss."

    I've never heard of green pee though.

    Animal Paks make it the worst. It stinks like a patch of asparagus and it's like all these weird colors.

    Plus you have to take 18 pills a day to make it that way. Yep...you can keep that buddy!

    I had never heard of GREEN urine being normal, so I investigated with my uber google detective skills.

    A urinary tract infection, bile problems and certain drugs can cause the urine to turn greenish. A brighter green color is an indication of an excess of B vitamins.

    Yeah basically. With any multi they are overloading you on vitamins because it's supposed to be "one pill fits all" mentality. They are formulating it for someone who works out intensely with a lot of cardio basically.

    What you pee out, is what your body doesn't use/need.

    urine is a waste product. Changes in color can be diet related. After eating dark green vegi's (aspargas) it'll have a stronger odor too. Unsure of your age but if you've ever gone on binge night drinking usually by the end of the night your piss is clear. Drink more water, take the multi with food for better absorbtion. Just curious do you sweat green ? like that Gatoraid commercial

    Too much b-vitamin gets me going green too, it's nothing to worry about, it just means you could do with more water and that megadosing vitamins is rather pointless.

    That all depends on how physical your days. Some people need a larger dose of B than others. Like I said earlier, i'm under the impression that these companies make the multi with the person who is EXTREMELY physical in mind.

    Thanks for the help
    My piss isn't "GREEN" it just has a greenish color to it.
    I guess it's normal, I'll just try to drink more water to.
    And yes I take it with food. I haven't noticed green sweat, but that would be pretty cool.

    No reference at the moment, but I remember green urine being a product of disposing unabsorbed Riboflavin.
