Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 3 years ago.

Dr. Natasha :

no

Dr. Natasha :

It will not cause you any harm

Dr. Natasha :

It may taste weird

Your urine should NOT sit out at room temperature for more than a couple of hours prior to consumption because it can get bacteria in it

but fresh urine is sterile (and has saved people from dying of dehydration in the event of a natural disaster- earthquake, coal mine collapse, etc)

Hi doctor Natasha, you didn't
Answer my question on how to make my urine a stronger taste
Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 3 years ago.
I am not sure I can answer this question- it is not something that we generally promote- drinking urine.
You asked me if it was safe. I said yes.
But i cannot tell you how to make it stronger or alter the taste.
I hope I am explaining my self well
But if you know anything about cooking, then I am sure you know how to reduce a sauce. Same applies.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thankyou Dr Natasha
I understand that in order to make urine darker and stronger certain foods should be eaten and sauces added to foods
Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 3 years ago.
Good luck

Thankyou Dr Natasher
