why Urine Yellow in color Scientists Solve Mystery with new study
According to scientists who study the human body, human urine also contains water, electrolytes, and waste materials. All these are removed from the blood by the kidneys during the filtration process. According to the report, about 125 years ago scientists had discovered the element urobilin found in urine. But there was not much information about how it is made and where it comes from. Now the latest study talks about the relationship between the color of urine and the red blood cells found in the body. When red blood cells break, an orange colored pigment comes out which is called bilirubin.
Normally this pigment is released in our digestive system, then some of it is reabsorbed by the blood. When it reaches the small intestine, the bacteria present here break it into different particles. Bacteria convert it into bilirubin reductase which turns bilirubin into a colorless byproduct. This is called urobilinogen. According to the study's lead author, urobilinogen is now immediately converted into urobilin. This is responsible for the yellow color of urine.
Researchers say that before this study, it was believed that many enzymes were involved in this process. but it's not like that. The yellow color is the result of a single enzyme. The discovery of bilirubin reductase may now help researchers better understand gut health, bowel disease, and diseases such as jaundice. Researchers have said that these enzymes are present in everyone. But they are not present in infants and people with inflammatory bowel disease. However, researchers hope that stomach and liver related diseases will now be better understood and cured than before.
