Blood Health

Our blood brings oxygen and nutrients to all the parts of the body as well as removing waste matter and carbon dioxide away from our tissues, so its health is important for our overall health. Here at Bluecrest, we are passionate about empowering you to take control of your health through knowledge and support and have collated all you need to know about blood health, related conditions and supporting your blood health below.

What is Blood Health?

Our blood is vital to our overall health, with many functions in the body, including:

  • Delivering oxygen and nutrients to the body’s organs and tissues.
  • Helping the body fight infection and protection from disease with antibodies and white blood cells.
  • Regulating body temperature and water content.
  • Removing waste matter and carbon dioxide away from our tissues.

With our blood being so vital to our overall health, it’s important to keep it healthy. Some common conditions affecting blood health include high blood pressure, high cholesterol and anaemia.
