Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Do vitamins b,c and magnesium cause yellowish brown stool and bright yellow urine?

Riboflavin

Urine
I don't know about the stool color, but B-vitamins are often spiked with a large amount of riboflavin / vitamin B2. This has a natural yellow fluorescence and its changing the color of the urine perhaps also makes people think the vitamins are better. It's harmless.

My urine is bright yellow but I dont take vitamins, cause?

Normal variation

Urine
The color of one's urine is a reflection of one's state of hydration and how one's body uses water. The more hydrated one is, the clearer the color and the greater the urinary frequency. On the other hand, darker yellow urine is associated with dehydration and less urinary frequency. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), present in most multivitamins, is what imparts a more colorful yellow/orange urine.

Dr. Lynne Weixel answered:

What would cause my urine to be bright yellow, and smell really salty?

Probably several

Urine
But, one easy thing to try is to drink lots of water (8+ 8oz glasses per day) for a day or two. If this clears it - you might not have a problem other than being dehydrated. But, if it is still not right - see your doctor for an exam and lab work. Being pregnant makes it even more important to be checked and your body may be a sensitive one too. If water isn't enOUGH, see the doctor. Best wishes!

Why is my urine bright yellow?

Vitamins

Medication
Usually, urine is a clear, sparkling, lemon color. Daily multi-vitamins could cause your urine to have more of a fluorescent yellow color. With liver disease, your urine would be more of a dark color. With heart disease, you may have a lighter color to the urine. A trial off OTC meds may clear up your urine - if it doesn't, then you may consider getting a urinalysis to guide you.

B vitamins usually

Why is my urine bright yellow after taking vitamins?

YOUR BODY

Vitamin_deficiency
ELIMINATES IN THE URINE AND THROUGH STOOLS THE VITAMINS IT CAN NOT STORE. YOUR URINE WILL HAVE MOST OF THOSE. VERY NORMAL TO HAVE DARKER URINE.
