Urine consists of 95% of water, 2.5% of urea and the remaining 2.5% is a mixture of minerals , salts, hormones and enzymes. Only urea , the substance after which urine is named, can be poisonous when present in the blood. However, this is irrelevant in the practice of drinking urine, as urine is not immediately put back in the bloodstream. In small amounts urea gets back into the body, it is purifying, and clears up excess mucus. Urine is entirely sterile after secretion and has an antiseptis effect.

Urine is basically a waste product of our body. Kaya siya maalat dahil lahat ng salt mo sa katawan na finfilter ng kidneys, dun nilalabas. Kaya siya mabantot ay dahil kapag natutuyo dahil sa ammonium content niya. Ammonium is hazardous to our body kaya waste rin .
Urine is basically sterile paglabas ng inyong urethra (unless may UTI kayo or STD). Pero yun nga, yung ammonium and salt content niya, hindi kailangan ng katawan kaya nilalabas. Same rin yan sa may diabetes kung bakit nilalanggam ang wiwi nila. Dahil may glucose rin na nae excrete dahil sa taas ng levels sa blood nila (and yun pwede pa gamitin ng mga langgam).
Generally urine is clear like pure water, or there may a tinge of yellow in it. When the quantity of urine decreases, due to hot weather or for any other reason, the concentration of substances in the urine increases, in which case it will probably be of a deeper yellow or orange color. The urine of a person suffering from jaundice is generally as yellow as turmeric, and that of a feverish person has a reddish tinge. Disorders of the kidneys or the urinary tract may cause urine to become turbid and red in color.
The urine of a healthy person is a little salty in taste. If the urine is of a more intense yellow color, it may be a little saltier in taste. If there is a reddish tinge in the urine, it may have a slightly bitter taste. Variations in the intake of solids and liquids as well as variations in the weather cause corresponding variations in the color and taste of urine.
