It's happened to me several times.

Did they happen to have a B2 (riboflavin) supplement in them?

I have no idea. I will have to check that out.
This has happened to me on Rockstar and Monster.

B2 is commonly used to increase mental alertness and concentration as the body uses it to release energy from fats and carbohydrates. An excess in B2 is secreted in the urine as B vitamins are water soluble. This is characterized by a yellow/green colour to the urine.

I did not know that.
When it happens, I am all "Oh Sh*t Sandwich"
Thanks for dropping some knowledge.

No problem. As an athlete I've studied a decent amount of nutrition.
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 7:46:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Did you add the pic to my question?
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 7:51:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
It is possible...
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 8:02:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
hell no
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 8:22:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm supriced it hasn't happen to me. I'm the energy drink addict at my school and I haven't had that experience.
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 9:00:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, i thought i was dying
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 10:35:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never drink that stuff, so no
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 1:27:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't drink that sh*t.

I've never even had an energy drink. I drank about 25% of one once, at decided it wasn't for me.

That's really unhealthy though. Urine should be pale yellow, not green for God's sake.

If it was caused from what I suspected then there isn't anything unhealthy about it. There is no toxicity for B2.

Apart from vitamin A, bioaccumulation and side effects are very unlikely actually. One really has to be out on purpose to get liver damage from Niacin for exemple... Some minerals could be dangerous in high doses as well.

But when it comes to energy drinks, caffeine's short term effect on the CNS is what's to be concerned about, + the very low PH may give one heartburn / stomach discomfort.

Oh there are plenty of health issues with energy drinks... just if the urine discolouration is caused from B2 then that is definitely not one of them.

apart from the refined sugar and caffeine, there isn't really stuff that is all that harmful in there. Of course long term usage and abuse may have more ill effects, I'm guessing it increases the likelihood of vascular issues, insomnia and probably even libido ffs.

But the occasional dabble really isn't that harmful to someone who's otherwise healthy.

As with virtually anything. Moderation blah blah blah...

The problem is that the common western diet is entirely nutrient deprived, stimulant based, and highly acid forming. All of which have very adverse cumulative health effects. Energy drinks magnify and exasperate all of these issues.

awwww
we hit the spot

well put too
I commend you sir

I wish there was only taurine and b12 in there
maybe with aloe extract or some'n to make PH decent
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 3:40:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Only once, I freaked out and decided to never have more than 1 day, now i never drink em.
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 5:08:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's time to step off the energy drink train. Just go Tric over events of your past... you don't even need any drinks
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 10:09:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Never (I don't really drink energy drinks that much). I didn't even know that was possible
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 10:11:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, but once I took too many vitamins and peed neon-yellow.
11 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 12:12:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I once ate a whole box of grape iced cream and my crap ended up being purple...scared the hell outta me at first until I remembered what I ate.
