Does vitamin B12 complex cause bright yellow urine?
A yellow or light orange color may be caused by removal of excess B vitamins from the bloodstream, but other nutrients such as carotenoids can also lead to yellowish coloring of the urine Most nutrients from either foods or supplements can lead to coloring but a fluorescent yellow or greenish color may be caused by vitamin supplements containing B vitamins and especially if your fluid intake is below normal The coloring is normal and generally nothing to worry about, because B-vitamins are water soluble, meaning you excretes what you donâ€™t use But again, make sure you are drinking adequate amounts of fluids If there is concern about the color of the urine, visit a health care practitioner to be certain that everything is normal
