Healthy Urine

Your urine can tell you a lot about your health and your habits. Urine is produced when blood passes through the kidneys, which filter out excess waste and water. This waste travels through tubes known as ureters and is stored in the bladder until you urinate.

Urine colors

Urine colors can vary depending on what you eat, any medications you’re taking, and how much water you drink. Many of these colors fall on the spectrum of what “normal” urine can look like, but there are cases where unusual urine colors may be a cause for concern.

When you’re healthy and hydrated, your urine should fall somewhere between colorless and the color of light straw and honey. When you don’t consume enough fluids, your urine becomes more concentrated and turns a darker yellow or amber color.

If you're not taking a peek into your toilet bowl after peeing, it's time to start. Based on its color and cloudiness, your urine can clue you in on certain aspects of your health. You've probably heard, for example, that the color of your pee can reflect your hydration level. Urine can also reveal other information about your health.
