super vitamin b complex

hello, I currently am taking super b complex vitamin. After taking this vitamin, I notice that my urine is a deeper yellow and sometimes smells like the vitamin. Should I be concerned? also, I heard that this is a sign that my body is not absorbing the vitamin and that I am pissing it out as well as I should look into another brand, is this true?

Is this a weight loss question?

Would the pills happen to be yellow?  If so, it would be the dye in them that's causing your urine to be yellow.  If the pills aren't yellow, you might want to look at other supplements you might be taking.  Another thing is if you don't go to the bathroom often and drink plenty of water, your urine becomes more concentrated and can turn a darker color, plus have more of an odor.

B vitamins are water soluble, so if you don't really need them, they will leave the body via the urine.  That doesn't mean you aren't absorbing them; it means you have enough.
