The Bloody Importance of Healthy Blood Donations

Blood runs thicker than water. Of course, it does. That’s because it’s made up of red blood cells, platelets, plasma and white blood cells. And although water is the main component of plasma, it contains so much more and does so much more. Blood is life. It has numerous functions; the most important one is to transport oxygen, hormones, nutrients, minerals and trace elements to our organs and the cells that make them up. Cellnutrition, a 100% pure, natural and innovative product range that contains all 78 minerals and trace elements for cellular wellness, speaks about the importance of healthy blood and why donating a pint every two months is vital to keeping society sustainably healthy this Blood Donor Week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The statistics are out. About one in every seven people entering a hospital need blood to survive. But only one pint of blood, can save up to three people’s lives. With the outbreak of the Corona-19 Pandemic, the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT), the national body responsible for blood supply in NHS hospitals, has confirmed a 15% drop in the number of people donating blood and is appealing for donations. Although plasma in some instances can be reproduced, there is surprisingly no substitute for the red substance coursing through our arteries and veins. It cannot be made or manufactured artificially. It is only through the generosity of blood donors that patients in need of blood transfusions are able to survive.

 

But what exactly is blood and how do you ensure that yours is healthy and doing what it is supposed to be doing? Blood is basically a form of liquid connective tissue that works to create homeostasis in the body. It maintains and regulates the internal state of our bodies right down to a cellular level, despite what we’re exposed to externally. The connective tissues in the form of platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells are suspended in a watery substance called plasma which make it liquid and able to circulate around the body.

It performs many roles including the delivery of Oxygen, essential fatty acids, micronutrients, proteins, certain sugars, salts and trace-elements to cells, the removal of Carbon Dioxide and waste products from cells in our organs to other organs including our Kidneys and Livers and makes sure that we maintain a healthy body temperature. This is called homeostasis. You’d be forgiven for thinking that blood is mostly water. It’s not. Our bodies need it to build resilient cells, maintain homeostasis and to stave off infections.

Healthy blood is well oxygenated and rich in bioavailable minerals and trace elements. That simply means that your body’s cells can absorb them efficiently. More than that, these minerals and trace elements, of which there are about 78, need to be balanced correctly, in the right ratios. Too much of one result in a lack of another which may have severe effects on our how health and overall wellbeing. The quickest and easiest way to ensure that you have healthy blood and therefore better overall performance, is to look at using the correct supplements.

Our modern lifestyles often see us reaching for convenience food fixes which might be calorie rich but nutrient poor. Combined with the more sedentary lifestyles that we find ourselves leading, Oxygen too is not being circulated efficiently meaning that we go to bed tired, wake-up tired and despite our best efforts, feel lacklustre and sluggish. We lean again to caffeine and sugar rich quick fixes for energy boosts and so the downward spiral begins.

Consider investing in a Cellnutrition Heath Bundle which includes Quinton Isotonic* and Quinton Hypertonic, and one bottle of Omegabiocell369 Cardio + Vitamin E. These pure vegan supplements are sustainably harvested from the pristine plankton blooms deep in the Atlantic Oceans using innovative extraction technology. The products are created to ensure maximum bioavailability.

All 78 minerals and trace elements as well as essential plant-based fats, are balanced to the correct ratios and enter the bloodstream quickly and efficiently and reach their destinations without delay. They are designed to create healthy internal homeostasis by staying in the body longer to create more resilient cells that can produce energy more efficiently which improves both mental and physical wellbeing. Coupled with moderate exercise to keep blood Oxygenated, donating one pint of blood every 56 days seems doable and trouble free.

*Has proven to contain the same concentration of minerals and trace elements as an ideal healthy internal terrain- providing all 78 minerals and trace elements in the correct concentration and proportions to create balance and equilibrium. Giving your cells their best foundation.  

Dr Gail Miflin, Chief Medical Officer for NHSBT says, “Right now, one of the most important things you can do to ensure we do not have another health crisis is keep donating blood. Many people like me rely on blood donations to stay alive. Thank you to everyone who keeps donating as normal.”
