Im setting myself up for some p*sstaking literally haha but what the hell.
I heard taking Vitamin B tablets and Garlic tablets can ward off mosquitos to i took one of each today and 5 hours later my pee is bordering on fluorescent green (quite a nice shade as well)

I know the more dehydrated you are the darker your pee gets but do vitamin tablets affect it or am i radioactive or something freaky haha

Reece just asked my other half and he is a scientist (!) but he says in theory yes vitamin tabs can make your pee go a funny colour because of the chemicals in them!! Now l just told him it was a green colour and he has shrieked and called you weird! Maybe see a GP and stay off the vitamins!

I am weird so theres no need to see the doctor because of that.
When i walk into the doctors they always say 'Hello theres that weirdo thats going travelling AGAIN'

I could always take a photo of it and show the scientist then maybe he can verify it

Totally normal....different vit's can make different colors/odors/etc. for different people. Don't sweat it! :)

Did you switch off the toilet light to see if it glows in the dark?

<- Green like this?

He has declined the offer - he does keep his analysis gear at home!!!!

How is it today - any new colour changes!!
