benefits of blood donation
Blood donation benefits more than just those who receive blood. Donating blood is advantageous for the giver as well.
Personal and health benefits include:
- Free health screening. Every time you give blood, your blood pressure, pulse, temperature, and hemoglobin level are checked.
- Boosts the production of red blood cells. Donation of blood reduces the number of red blood cells in the blood. The bone marrow immediately begins to replenish the lost cells. As a result, the blood of a donor is refreshed every time they donate because of the increased production of new blood cells.
- Feel good! Giving feels great, especially when you understand that one hour of your time and one blood donation can make such a difference.
