Did you know that the color of your urine actually means something? It gives you what you need to know regarding how hydrated you are and how much nutrition is in your diet. By taking a look at the colors below and correlating them with the description you can gauge where you’re at.
After the graphic below, there will be a brief description summarizing things as to where you want your urine color to be and how to get it there.
As you can see, generally speaking the lighter the urine color the better. If your urine is a mild to dark yellow or any color beyond that here are a few recommendations to take into consideration:
1. Drink More Water:
You are most likely dehydrated to some degree. Drink more pure water, pure water could be spring water, distilled or purified water. Avoid tap water if you can and get a filter for your home. Drink 50% of your body weight in ounces of water each day. Example: If you weigh 150 pounds, you should be drinking at least 75 ounces of water daily.
2. Eat Healthier:
Imbalances in your fluids, whether it be urine, blood, dehydration etc. can come from an imbalance in your diet. Eat plenty of organic vegetables and fruits each day. The vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals contained in plants help to improve bladder, kidney and blood health.
3. Move More:
Stagnation from anything in your body can be helped by simply moving. Walk more, go for a short run and then walk home. Simply move your body! By moving your body you allow the water (hydration) and nutrition from food to get to where they need to be easier so that they can go to work and be effective in healing and repairing your body.
