Usually the extent of our knowledge about urine coloring is, the lighter the color, the more hydrated you are and the darker it is the more dehydrated you are… but there is so much more.
Here are 7 urine colors that indicate health
1. Dark Yellow /Amber
This color is fine, however like we mentioned above, you may want to increase your daily intake of water! When your body is releasing water-like urine, it means that it can afford to lose some water (that’s what you want).
2. Syrup Colored or Brown
This colour of urine could indicate that you’re suffering from some type of liver disease. If this is the regular color of your urine, we highly recommend you visit a physician.

3. Pink / Red Tint
If you didn’t have beets, blueberries or rhubarb for dinner last night, then this color urine could reveal that there is blood present in your urine. This could mean nothing, however it could also be an early symptom of kidney disease, tumors, or a urinary tract infection.
This orange is a bright orange that can sometimes be caused by dehydration, but it differs from a dark yellow because it also indicates that you could have a liver or bile duct infection.
5. Murky Urine
When your urine appears murky or milky, you may have a urinary tract infection or kidney stones. This one is hard to identify so if you suspect your urine is abnormal, we suggest popping over to see your family doctor.
6. Normal Urine
There is a large range of colors due to the fact that everyone is very different! Everyone’s body digests food differently and everyone has a different diet to begin with! You should generally have yellow pee, anywhere ranging from a dehydrated amber, to completely clear with a slight yellow tinge.
7. Clear Urine
Although the lighter your urine is the healthier you are, sometimes when your urine is too clear, your body may be going through over hydration. Simply decrease your water intake by a glass a day and see if that changes your urine color. If not, visit a doctor!
