Most of us know that diet plays a significant role in our body odor. However, it also defines pee odor. Odor is associated with the breakdown of the constituents of the diet we consume. For example, high levels of asparagine in asparagus acts as a natural diuretics to get rid of extra salt and fluids in the body & ward off Urinary tract infections. But it also makes your pee smell. But don’t worry, though your pee smells, such foods are totally healthy to your body. Some foods that make your pee smell are listed below:
Methyl mercaptan is a by-product gaseous substance produced by the body on consuming Brussels sprouts. This gas is definitely going to make your pee smell.
Again methyl mercaptan naturally occurs in onions, which also gives a bad breath along with smelly pee.
Study from University of California, Berkeley has suggested that people with metabolic disorder cannot breakdown trimethylaminuria into trimethylamine which then builds up and leaves the body in the form of sweat, urine and breath. This makes urine smell really fishy.
Coffee byproducts called Metabolites result in coffee-like smelling urine especially if you are a heavy coffee drinker.
Sulfur compounds (a prime compound) in cumin are known to cause a stinky pee.
Belonging to the same family as onions, garlic too produces smelly urine. But these pungent-smelling vegetables are really healthy for your immunity!
Body’s way of getting rid of alcohol out of its system is through oxidation (a process to breakdown the toxins). Hence you can smell the alcohol in your breath, sweat and urine after heavy consumption of it.
Oh yes! Pineapple too makes your urine smell. But in a sweet way! High-sugared fruits sometimes make your body fluids to smell sweet on excretion.
