Mucous: is produced by cells lining internal membranes and ducts of the body including the mouth, nasal passages bronchioles, lungs, vagina, stomach, intestines [gut and colon] and are generally referred to as the mucous membranes.


Mucous production depends on adequate hydration and water intake is of vital importance.  Under hydration leads to insufficient production of saliva and the inability to swallow food without water or liquids to assist passage through the esophagus into the stomach.

Production of excess mucous is a symptom of inflammation caused by destruction of the mucous membranes and/or disruption of mucin producing bacteria.

Many foods are notoriously famous for causing production of mucous due to their adverse effects in the intestinal tract.

Mucous is an example of a by-product of bacteria such as Akkermansia municiphilia, Faecalibacterium and certain Bifidobaceria species.

When these bacteria are supplied with a sufficient and regular supply of substrate, production of mucin in the intestinal tract [large and small] increases and provides protection for the tight junctions of the intestinal gut wall.

When the microbiota and intestinal mucosa is disturbed or becomes perturbed by stress, bad diet, fungal invasion and especially ANTIBIOTICS, friendly bacteria die and release toxic chemicals that OPEN THE TIGHT JUNCTIONS OF THE GUT WALL.

Infections such as Clostridium difficile [C-diff] and methicilllin resistant staph aureus [MRSA] attack and overwhelm the microbiota leading to serious consequences and death.  As of year 2018, approximately 40,000 people a year die, and 80,000 infections occur from these types of infections.

See MicroBiota Protocol in link below and the term mucosa in the Glossary link below.

Adverse reactions such as allergy are AUTOIMMUNE responses.  Phlem, sinus congestion and hacking cough are examples of autoimmune response presenting as adverse mucous production.
