A man identified as Fabian Farquharson , who is from South Yorkshire, England, has revealed that he feels better than ever after he started drinking more than a pint of his own urine every morning – and claims it tastes like bitter ale.
The interior designer starts every day with a pint of fresh urine, chased down with 300-400ml of aged pee, and claims the unusual thirst quencher has left him feeling healthier, happier and smarter.
He explained: ‘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.
