The urinary tract is exceedingly significant to your health- throughout urination we release toxins from our body and any harmful substances that have piled up in our organism. 

Sometimes, the urinary tract can become neglected body area, but the truth is- it is one of the key body systems that can indicate any signs of abnormality or a certain disease.

Since we stated how important the good condition of the urinary system is, here are the four most essential aspects in regards to urine that you should always have on your mind:

-The average times or urination per day is seven

Benjamin Braker, a famous urologist at the Medical University of New York gives this estimation based on many research and although this can vary to how many drinks you have consumed during the day, it is the general accepted number. 

Small divergences are not harmful.

-The average healthy person urinates for seven seconds

Again, this can be very subjective but short-term urinating of around two or three seconds is considered unhealthy and you probably suffering an infection. 

If that is the case, consult your medical doctor.

-The average adult withholds 300 to 500 ml of urine

The bladder size is generally the same in all people, male or female. 

It takes 7 to 11 cups to fill the urine that the bladder holds on a single occasion.

-The general health is demonstrated through urine colour

– Transparent urine- the most positive colour of all. 

Sometimes, though, an overconsumption of water can lead to calcium being eliminated from the bones and this can cause the colouring.

Pale yellow urine- the situation is stable. 

However, you need to drink more water in the future.

Dark yellow urine- the dark tones of urine can indicate dehydration. 

If the urine colour is golden-brown, practice drinking large amounts of water immediately.

Brown urine- usually this colouring shows liver infection or blood in urine. 

Consult your physician.

Red or pink urine- unless you have drunk some coloured beverages, this colouring signals severe body damage (cancer or kidney stones). 

Visit your medical doctor at once.

Blue, green, orange or any other colour urine- most likely we are talking about food products rich in artificial colours that can cause this.
