Health benefits of donating blood

Reduces chances of heart attack

It has been observed that increase in blood iron level increases the risk of heart disease. Iron is involved in the oxidation of cholesterol and this process is found to be detrimental to the arteries. Increased blood iron level results in cholesterol oxidation and thus leads to heart disease. Regular blood donation helps in the reduction of iron levels. It also helps in reducing the risk of heart attacks to one third.

Enhance the production of new Red Blood cells

As blood is withdrawn from the donor’s body there is a decrease in blood cells. To replenish it, new cells are produced by the bone marrow and in this way the blood gets refreshed. Therefore, donating blood helps in stimulating generation of new blood cells.

Apart from all these benefits a donor gets a mini blood test done before donating blood. This includes Hematocrit, i.e. Hb level test, Blood Pressure is measured and the body weight is checked. After this, blood is collected and tested for 5 major diseases like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, Syphilis and Malaria. The donor is informed if any of these tests are found to be positive.
