Since a week i feel like saliva is produced more than normal cuz i'm swallowing it a lot which doesn't feel good. and also i feel like mucous sometimes in throat so, is the saliva generated more due to having cold?

Yes. Any inflammation in or around mouth could result in greater saliva production in body's attempt to remove the irritant. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
