Before we dive into our topic for today,let’s explain the meaning of urine.

Urine can be defined as a liquid excretory product in human beings which flows from the kidneys through the ureters to the urinary bladder.

The breakdown of mineral substances by the body (Cellular metabolism) leads to the formation of many end-products that are high in nitrogen and needs to be removed from the bloodstream, such as urea, uric acid, etc. These end-products are removed from the body through the release of urine, which is the primary method for excreting water-soluble chemicals from the body.
