We can't have a watery layer separating sticky mucus from our cells because there is an osmotic pressure in the mucus that causes it to expand in water," Rubinstein says.
It also increases the osmotic pressure in the intestinal lumen, resulting in an increase in fecal volume.
Forward osmosis or 'manipulated osmosis' or just 'osmosis' are terms used to describe a natural phenomenon, whereby a solvent flows from a region of lower osmotic pressure across a selectively permeable membrane to an area of higher osmotic pressure.
