Mucus acts as a protective covering over the mouth, nose, sinuses, throat, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract preventing the tissue underneath from drying out. Mucus also traps unwanted substances like bacteria and dust before they can get into the body.
Here are some mucus-causing foods to avoid, especially for those with respiratory challenges:
- Red meat
- Cows milk all dairy products (Cheese, Yogurt, Ice Cream, Butter & processed foods with dairy products in the ingredients)
- Corn and corn products
- Soy products
- Sweet desserts
- Alcoholic beverages
There are other foods that may create mucus in some and not others so listen to your body after each meal, to determine what you should avoid.
