Anyone has mucus in the body until, at some point, mucus is useful. But when the secretion of mucus in the body occurs in response to certain foods or items in the environment, the problems begin to appear, especially in the context of the respiratory device system!
Foods that create mucus:
Dairy products such as milk, cream, yogurt, cheese, and ice cream are the primary source of mucus caused by food.
Phlegm, irritating, is made in the neck of these types of foods. Also, they could make existing mucus thicker and rougher. Be wary if you have an allergy to milk because milk is not easily digested. Animal protein is harder to process compared to plant-based protein.
Products of Animal
Products of animal origin obtained from food-animals, meat, and poultry, eggs, can cause problems with mucus. These foods can cause a buildup of mucus in your throat because they are high in protein. It would be a good idea if you opt for this kind of meat, to orientate towards organic products.
Fats and Oils
Fats and oils derived from animals should be limited, butter, and fatty acids omega-6 included on this list. In oils, sunflower, corn, and olives are much better options.
Cereals wheat flour bread, processed products, such as pasta and cereals, should be reduced from processed food, while consumption of barley, corn, millet, and quinoa should be a routine.
I don’t usually consider drinks when you’re thinking of mucus. Still, some regular glasses, as well as black tea, coffee, chocolate drinks, milkshake, sweetened soft drinks, and alcohol, can cause the buildup of mucus.
Foods that eliminate mucus:
Fruit and Vegetables
Fruit and vegetables provide antioxidants, nutrients that strengthen our body’s ability to fight with disease and infections. Forest fruits, herbs, broccoli, tomatoes, citrus fruits, and peppers are particularly high in antioxidants.
For example, foods like:
Watercress, garlic, onion, pickled food, and also lemon help to reduce mucus production
Also, helpful foods are:
- Pumpkin seeds
Foods that stimulate the production of mucus
- Red meat
- Ice Cream
- Corn and corn products
- Soy products
- Sweet desserts
- Alcoholic beverages
Olive oil unsaturated fat, healthy for the heart, can be achieved through the use of olive oil.
Olive oil takes effect on what often reduces the symptoms of bronchitis. Try to change the sources of saturated fat in your diet, such as butter and margarine with olive oil, if you’re already prone to mucus.
Even better would be to use olive oil together greens and lemon-that is a delicious salad.
Warm fluids are a reassuring option. Delighting in fluids throughout the day helps the body to evacuate the toxins and promotes hydration, which enables you to heal faster.
Tea, boiled vegetables, and vegetable soups help relieve mucus and are effective in reducing neck pain.
