    Has anyone ever had problems with this product turning your urine a light green? Here is a pic of the product.

    It's not really a side effect.. if you take any vitamin that has excess B Vitamins (water soluble) It will show up in your urine. Water soluble vitamins are dissolved in water. Your body isn't 100% effecient and often vitamins have a bit more than we need anyway. The excess is excreted through urine.

    One way to decrease the waste, if you aren't already, is to take your vitamins staggered. There is really no reason to take both (ultra mega greens is a two-a-day vitamin) at once, other than convenience. One in the morning and one mid-afternoon works well for me.

    But like someone said, b vitamins. Its because they are being processed that you are getting the bright colours

    I hope that one day I consume enough greens that my urine will be alkalizing.

    Does it taste normal? If so, you're fine.

    You know what's awesome? When you eat a ton of beets and your urine is bright pink.

    But you forget that you ate the beets last night and you're convinced that you're bleeding internally.

    Yep. They took a lot of crap out, I think. It isn't really THAT much different. I think it may have had something to do with the fact that most people only took two a day anyway. If they sell it as a two a day pill, they make more money. Otherwise people buy a 2 month supply and it lasts them 3 months..

    I've got the Ultra Mega Green and the Mega Men multi vitamins.

    My question is would it be better for me to take 1 tab each of these or just go with the greens? It seems as though the Mega Men multi has a lot more mg for the big vitamins like A,B,C,D etc.
