Why is my urine bright yellow after taking Premium Insurance Caps?

 

The riboflavin (vitamin B2) component naturally alters the pigmentation of urine to a bright yellow color. This is usually the main reason why people notice their urine being bright yellow at some point after taking Premium Insurance Caps (PIC's) and it is completely harmless.

Some people believe they are "peeing out all their vitamins" when they see their urine turning yellow but this is not really the case; it's primarily due to the riboflavin that is contained in any product, ours or anyone else's. Yes, the body will excrete certain amounts of specific nutrients when they're in excess. However, here's something to consider: it is only when excess amounts are excreted in the urine that one can know for sure that they're obtaining the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals. In other words, if certain amounts of vitamins and/or minerals are excreted in urine, that's a clear indication that you have obtained maximum amounts. In addition, urinary tract health can be promoted when these nutrients are available "in transit" through this particular body system. Lastly, among other things, exercise demand increases the need for more B-Complex vitamins, proportionate to duration/intensity, which is why we put ODI (Optimal Daily Intake) amounts in PICs.
