Urine is made up of water and waste products that are intended to be eliminated from the body. Ingesting urine re-introduce these waste products back into the body, putting stress on the kidneys and may ultimately lead to dehydration or possible kidney damage.
Anything your kidneys filter out of your body winds up in your urine to be removed. By drinking urine, you are consuming these toxins that your body explicitly intended to remove.
This can lead to kidney damage, health complete, sweating, infection, kidney damage, disease as these organs need to work harder to handle the increased concentration of toxic substances.
In ancient folk medicine, it was thought there could be some health benefits to drinking urine, and this advice still comes up periodically on TV shows and internet forums. To be clear, there is no known health benefit from this practice. Drinking urine can introduce bacteria into your system which may cause stomach upset, nausea and vomiting.
Although sipping the occasional urine sample may not be immediately harmful, it should not be forgotten that urine can contain harmful substances in those who have taken drugs legal or otherwise or have been exposed to chemical residues in the environment.
