Vitamin B-complex / Orange urine

Several hours after my first slightly yellow B vitamin pill, I have been urinating shockingly orange urine. It so bright it almost glows, seriously.

The vitamin is the only thing I can think it to be.

Is this normal, and shall I stop taking these?

Re: Vitamin B-complex / Orange urine

It's normal to have fluorescent yellow urine while taking vitamin B. B vitamins are water soluble. The vitamin molecules themselves are yellow and bodies just flush out extra dosages of them so what your body does not use it gets washed out. No harm is being done to your body

Re: Vitamin B-complex / Orange urine

One thing, not drinking enough water can also cause the urine to turn yellow, so you could be having a combination effect with the B vitamin and dehydration. I assume that you are drinking plenty of water, but it is something for all of us to remember, especially since if one is taking a B vitamin but not drinking enough water, the B-vitamin link to the yellow color might be a fakeout.
