Reduce mucus and phlegm

Posted on: April 12, 2013

Anti-inflammatory Oils

Most often inflammation in the lungs leads to excessive mucus production. According to research done by the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), a regular intake of anti-inflammatory oils can help to reduce the build-up of mucus. Omega-3 fatty acids that come from these foods is specifically linked to reducing inflammation, which in turn can cut the mucus build-up in the lungs. The oil is found in a variety of foods including several cold water fish such as mackerel, tuna, salmon, lake trout and sardines; walnuts, flaxseed, flaxseed oil and walnut oil.

I love fish so eating salmon is right up my ally as a healthy food to help reduce the mucus forming in my lung. The coughing and chest pains is tiresome.

The antioxidants work had to promote healing and prevent infection related to mucus production and build-up. Some of the best fruits and vegetables to reduce mucus build up include onions, bell peppers, leafy greens, celery, parsley, garlic, horseradish, lemon, watercress, broccoli, tomatoes, berries, kiwi, citrus fruits and cherries. It is recommended that people with mucus problems limit their intake or avoid altogether cabbages, bananas and potatoes, which are believed to increase the production of mucus.

I ate some bell peppers and broccoli in my chicken soup and a few strawberries. Read healthier ways to rid or stop production of mucus in the body. Learn more about bring healthy from Why Am I Unhealth.
