Murphy said pee is also an anti-aging agent.

Since drinking his first glass of pee, Murphy said he’s noticed a lot of improvements. Besides the weight loss, Murphy said he has a lot more energy and his bowel movements have improved.

“Urine is a cure-for-all. If people could just change their mentality and preconceptions about this therapy, then anyone can feel the huge benefits,” he said. 
“After drinking my urine, I feel healthier and fitter than I’ve ever done before and I’ve lost eight stone (112 pounds) in weight,” said Murphy, a father of two adult children.

Murphy told the news outlet he used to drink the liquid body waste cold after letting it cool in the fridge but now downs it warm, twice daily.
