I was watching Mayweather vs Marquez 24/7 tonight and it showed Juan Manuel drinking his own urine after a workout. It seems like I have been hearing more and more of this going on lately, like Machida etc. Is it really that beneficial? I guess that I always thought it was waste. I'll tell you what I would never do it. Whats next making a turd sandwich?

I do a lot of things to get myself in better condition for my training, but I would NEVER do this.

Anyone know what kind of possible benefits that would have?

I've looked and I cannot find one good reason to drink your own urine. There is not one piece of scientific evidence to prove it has any therapeutic benefits.

It contains small amounts of hormones and metabolites, and can contain vitamins that your body did not absorb. That is the only reason I could see to justify consuming it, but as I said there is nothing that suggest that it is beneficial in any way.

Thats what Marquez said, something about the vitamins that your body didnt absorb. I guess that I was busy being grossed out insted of reading the subtitles. He really wants to win, I'll give him that.

Somebody needs to tell him that he can just take more vitamins. Your body only sheds the vitamins it couldn't use or didn't need, so if it's in your urine your body didn't want it for one reason or another. If you drink your urine the vitamins are more than likely just gonna get passed right on through the next time you take a leak again. End conclusion for me is there is no reason to drink it.

He went and grabbed a glass off of the counter and went to the bathroom, then walked out sat down and drank it. No ice, no nothing. I cant wait to see what Mayweather is gonna say about it on next weeks show!!

In my opinion, the whole drinking urine thing is a bunch of BS. This is your body's waste. You would fair better getting nutrients eating healthy food. The only time it would be beneficial to drink your urine is if you are in a situation where you could die from dehydration and needed to drink your urine to conserve water.

As far as the whole athletes drinking urine thing, IMO, it is either some sick fetish or it is faked (or not) to play mind games. Unless you see the guy piss into a cup and then drink it (with no camera cuts or any thing) it could easily be faked.

No they won't absorb the second time. That's why it's a waste of time.
