No, there is no need to worry about this. This condition is called beeturia. The color of the urine changes red or pink, and it is totally harmless.

Oh! Okay. But do you know why does this happen?

If your urine is red or pink in color it could be because of your body’s inability to breakdown betanin compound.

Oh! But I have heard that if this continues, it is bad. I mean if your urine is red in color everytime you eat beets then that may suggest iron deficiency. Better to check with your doctor.

I was unaware of this. Thank you so much.
