Green snot

Why does your snot turn green with sinus infections? Your snot turns green from white blood cells releasing enzymes to break down microorganisms like bacteria or fungus. These enzymes contain iron, which imparts a greenish hue as they destroy invaders. Most greenish discharges are bacterial in origin although they tend to be thin and clear at first during a sinus infection. Snot also has the tendency to turn greenish the longer it is stopped up in your nasal cavities due to congestion. Most yellow discharges could be viral but a virus can also produce green snot and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria will produce golden-yellow colored mucus. Clear and copious amounts of runny snot are generally allergy related – especially if the sniffles show up with certain foods. White snot is usually a dairy intolerance. Whether your snot is bacterial, fungal or viral, colloidal silver spray will usually knock it right out. If your snot is a food allergy – well, eliminate that food!
