You have cut yourself - a red sap drops out:
Blood - a fluid that circulates in the vessels of your body!
To pump blood through all of our arteries and veins a good healthy blood pressure in short BP is needed. Blood pressure is one of the principal vital signs. |
Blood consists of plasma + cells floating within it, carrying nutrients and oxygen to your body cells. Blood maintains the homeostasis of the body.
What does that mean?
You know that we always talk about balance in Nature. Homeostasis is a self regulation process, to reach a balance inside the body continuously compensating for external change.
To say it in other words: We are built to live in balance, blood helps our body to maintain this balance.
On this web page we just try to give you a little glimpse. Send us an email to learn more!
All blood cells are produced in our bone marrow.
You surely heard about different blood types
0 + A + B + AB
As you can see in the graphic, there is not much difference. But when you get the wrong blood type in a transfusion you are in big trouble. Only blood type 0 is good compatible and when you look at the graphic you can see why.
If we would drain all the blood out of an adult human body|
about 5 liters = 5.3 US-quarts of blood would be in our bucket.
After spinning blood in a centrifuge|
it looks like this:
You can see the three main ingredients:
Plasma + Buffy Coat + erythrocytes
Plasma is the liquid that transports all the ingredients,
as river water transports fish and algae.
Dissolved in our blood plasma are electrolytes, nutrients and vitamins, hormones, protein, chemicals to clot the blood when you have an open wound. And there is immuno-globulin in the blood, also called antibodies who fight infections or intruders.
That's the way blood ingredients are pumped through our blood vessels|
Blood transports many things - an important one is oxygen.
Blood brings nutrients to every cell in our body.
Blood takes the oxygen while been pumped through our lungs.
Blood also carries away waste products.
As you know, we are breathing in oxygen, we are breathing out CO2 - carbon dioxide
You all know the machine that does the pumping
Our heart - a strong muscle pumping blood, quart by quart, as long as we live ...|
When our heart beats our blood pressure varies between a maximum = systolic and a minimum = diastolic pressure. A healthy blood pressure number is 120 to 75
Look how many blood vessels support our brain!
If we don't get enough blood supply
into our head
we get unconscious!
But not always blood is well organized.|
When we don't get enough water or have an illness blood clots can appear.
If one of these clots clogs up an artery or vein, especially in our brain, we are in big trouble!
Look at this picture:|
What could that be?
Below you see again human blood cells
The greenish photo shows tree sap
Tree sap provides the tree
with nutrients and hormones.
What does the human blood do?
Is it possible, that the same
'Engineer' has worked on both saps?
Healthy blood is very important for all life!
What can we do to keep our bodies healthy?
Eat in balance, drink in balance, don't smoke,
don't use illegal drugs!
Train your brain as you train your body!
Enjoy life - enjoy Nature!
We have to protect Nature to protect our future!|
