A man has revealed he feels better than ever after he started drinking more than a pint of his 30-day old urine every morning – and claims it tastes like bitter ale.
Fabian Farquharson, 37, from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, first started the bizarre practice three years ago after reading about the purported health benefits online.
The interior designer starts every day with a pint of 300-400ml of aged pee, and claims the unusual thirst quencher has left him feeling healthier, happier and smarter.
‘I’d been researching alternative medicines when I read about drinking aged urine. I’ve always been open-minded about that sort of thing, so I decided to give it a go and drink it fresh.
‘It tasted a bit like a bitter ale initially, it was quite strong but not a terrible taste and I had no problem finishing the glass.
‘It was about half an hour later that I started to feel amazing, I was absolutely bursting with energy. Now I’d never go a day without it and would recommend it to anyone.’
Fabian said that his friends and family ‘weren’t that surprised’ – because he has always been a bit off the wall in his approach to health.
After enjoying the ‘benefits’ of fresh urine, he quickly began to leave some for up to a month – or until it reaches the desired PH level of nine.
The idea, Fabian says, is that by ageing it the urine goes through a ‘magnification process’ and any alleged benefits will be more potent.
Explaining the process of ageing his urine, Fabian said:
‘I store it in glass containers like mason jars, label it with the date and then leave it for around 30 days.
