1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Many foods can enhance urine output, such as cranberries, melons, apple cider vinegar, and certainly caffeine.
Some people believe that dandelion and buchu are examples of natural diuretics. Alcohol inhibits secretion of a hormone affecting water reabsorption and may transiently have a diuretic-like effect.
