Lyoto Machida & JM Marquez are healthy dudes... but most people as healthy or healthier maintain without drinking pee.

I was going to defend this as a semi-legitimate question since I've known someone who knew someone who tried drinking their own urine to help with acne. Weird right. But after perusing through this guys questions I'm kinda thinking he is just trolling...

I'm pretty sure any benefit of this can be achieved through supplementation. The basic concept is to reincorporate any excess minerals and hormones that are shed through the urine. Also, there are apparently some therapeutic applications for urea, didn't get into that. If you're interested just look it up I guess.

I'm pretty sure that this practice can be dangerous depending on your diet, drug use.

Caribou have been known to drink each others urine for the psychoactive compounds found in Amanita Muscaria mushrooms.

If you are a Fremen on Arrakis then, yes, but you really wouldn't be drinking it...your stillsuit would be recycling it.

No. Urine drinking is a biblical activity (God said "drink from thy own cistern. Drink from your own well." that refers to Muscamol-containing urine recycling to extend the duration of the Muscamol in the body. Muscamol is excreted in the urine, but it is not degraded in the body, thus if you consume your urine, you will recover lost muscamol.

a google search will reveal that this is surprisingly "popular" behaviour and that many people swear by it. I actually knew a couple who practised this. They were very doctrinaire vegans. So the question is not as far out as it might see,

Not dying? Pretty good benefit I guess. In a non life threatening situation? Not likely.
