What is blood?

Ever paused to think about what's coursing through your veins? You might not unless you're donating blood, dealing with a cut, or getting a medical test. But there's every reason to be intrigued by your blood – it's essentially your body's river of life.

THE ANSWER

Cells & plasma.

Blood delivers the necessary “fuel” to every cell in your body.

Understanding how it works can demystify those blood test results from your doctor and unveil some fascinating facts about this vital liquid and the cells it carries.

Blood is a combination of cells and plasma.

Your heart tirelessly pumps this life-sustaining fluid throughout your body, providing oxygen and nutrients to cells and whisking away waste.

An average adult has about 5 liters of blood, accounting for 7 to 8 percent of their body weight. Approximately 2.75 to 3 liters are plasma, and the remainder consists of various cells.

PART ONE

A bit about the plasma.

Plasma, the liquid component, is where cells like red blood cells float.

But it's more than just a cellular taxi; plasma transports electrolytes, nutrients, vitamins, hormones, clotting factors, and infection-fighting proteins.

It's a delivery system, ensuring these vital substances reach every part of your body.

PART TWO

A bit about the cells.

Blood's cellular crew includes red blood cells (oxygen carriers), white blood cells (infection-fighting agents), and platelets (clotting experts).

They all originate in the bone marrow.

In childhood, most of our bones contribute to blood cell production, but in adulthood, only certain bones like the spine, ribs, pelvis, and parts of the arm and leg bones continue the blood-making process.

Active marrow is called red marrow, while inactive marrow is known as yellow marrow.

This entire blood production process is known as hematopoiesis.

Stemming from a versatile progenitor known as the pluripotential hematopoietic stem cell, all types of blood cells – red, white, and platelets – are produced, showcasing the cell's remarkable ability to differentiate and even replicate itself.

After only 10 days of taking the product as instructed (3 pills twice daily), I knew, then, I had found what I had been looking for. I decided to go on a monthly auto-ship. This product delivers!

Before I was using Redwood I was struggling daily with work and kids... Now I can't stop being more active. I have more energy with the kids, hitting the gym harder, work goes by fast.
