Theres a couple of other nutritional excesses that can cause this I think. But most commonly its b2. And this would be reasonably common in paleo people taking a multi-vitamin given meats are rich in b vits, and paleo people dont need extra.

That's totally normal. Doesn't mean you're not utilizing it. I can't forget which vitamin in there is doing it, but I've had it before myself.

it is vitamin B2 - riboflavin. What it means is that your kidneys are working and you are consuming more B2 that your body needs.

On the bright side, if you get lost in the dark you'll be able to illuminate your way home with a trail of luminous piss.
