Mucus
 

Learn more about mucus, the various colors and the effects it has on your sinuses and the throat conditions it may cause. You can also find out which remedy is best for you, by the color of your mucus.

What is mucus?
 

Mucus is a thick gelatinous fluid secreted or produced by various mucus cells that line the intestines, the nose, urinary and reproductive cells and other body organs. Mucus is made up of water, salts, glycoprotein (mucin) and other small cells.

Mucus can be found in various body organs such as the nose, lungs, intestines, digestive system, throat (usually dripping from the nose), urinary tract and other body tissues.

Asthmatics (people suffering from asthma) often complain of thick and viscous mucus. This is because when you have asthma; excess mucus is produced, blocking the airways. This causes breathing to become difficult as your airways become clogged due to the decrease in mucus drainage.

Mucus is functional in coating the organ membranes, preventing pollutants from invading and irritating the organs. Furthermore, mucus is also a perfect medium for bacterium to grow and other pollutants, such as pollen, molds, dust mites and/or animal dander to become trapped in it.

Unless mucus production is abnormal (overproducing or under-producing) or your cilia (microscopic hair that traps pollutants and help keeps mucus moving) are dysfunctional, mucus serves as a good frontline defense.


Functions of mucus
 

Mucus functions to coat and protect the lining of the organ, thus trapping any foreign substance that enters the body through that organ. For instance, nasal mucus traps dust and any allergens preventing it from invading the respiratory system. Mucus is moved by cilia (hair-like structures emanating from the cell membrane), and prevents tissues from drying out.

Basically, mucus functions to filter and humidity the air we breathe. Inhaled irritants such as molds, pollen, dust mites, animal dander, smoke, ash and anything else harmful gets trapped by the mucus, protecting you from infections or inflammation. Mucus also serves as basic protection against bacterial or viral invasion.

Mucus also moistens food, making it easier to swallow. Food also passes through the intestine more easily because of mucus.

In the lungs, mucus functions to smooth the airways linings and traps foreign substances that invade the respiratory system. When foreign substances make their way into the lungs they will be coughed out instantly.

In the nose, when excess mucus is produced, you will probably suffer from Post Nasal Drip (PND). SinusWars2 is the best remedy for PND.


The Color of your mucus
 

Mucus is normally clear, but some pollutants and viruses may cause it to change color.

The colors of mucus are:

  1. Clear
  2. Green
  3. Yellow
  4. Brown
  5. White

Each color may signify a certain type of an infection. Help your doctor define your symptoms to determine what infection your mucus color represents.


Post Nasal Drip
 

1 in every 50 people who visit our website suffers from some form of post nasal drip.

Post nasal drip (PND) occurs when excess mucus (mucous), usually caused by sinusitis or other inflammatory disorders, drips down the back of your throat or nose. This mucus is continually made by the cells lining of the sinus passages. It can irritate and settle on your nasal and throat lining causing a sore throat, bad breath, a cough and the dreaded post nasal drip.

PND can cause irritation, swelling of sinus lining, as well as bleeding, nasal polyps and Rhino-sinusitis. These irritations may result in improper functioning of your cilia. Cilia are microscopic hair-like structures extending from the surface of a cell. Their function is to humidify air, moisten and clean the nasal membranes, trap and clear inhaled dust particles or any unusual matter and fight infections.

In post nasal drip, mucus is normally clear, unless other infections exist in your respiratory system.
