Aside from actual medical problems the only thing that causes dark urine that you can modify is dehydration.
Therefore your urine will be darker and concentrated first thing in the morning and after sweating or playing sports
Its not safe to try to dehydrate yourself frequently so early morning is the best bet
Hi there Food and drink do not cause the urine to be concentrated.
In addition, a strong odor is an indication of infection or just concentration of the urine.
Drinking large amounts can cause fatigue, muscle soreness, diarrhea or fever. Drinking small amounts is likely harmless.
