Are you aware that blood donation has lots of health benefits? Not only for the person receiving the blood, but also for the blood donor. If you are unaware, it’s time to read this article!
Blood donation is power-packed with loads of health benefits for the blood donor. Below are some of the benefits for the blood donor.
- Weight loss
Blood donation is great for weight loss, especially for those who donate blood regularly. This is especially useful for overweight persons and those at risk of cardiovascular disease.
Do speak with your doctor before going for a blood donation, as regular blood donation is not intended to replace a healthy diet and physical activity.
- Lower cancer risk
Blood donation helps reduce your risk of having cancer, as depletion of excess iron stores in the body is associated with lower cancer risk.
- Maintains heart and liver health.
Blood donation is great for keeping the heart and liver healthy, especially as it maintains the iron levels in the body. Some foods make the body store excess iron, which can lead to liver disease like cirrhosis and irregular heart rhythms.
- Lower Hemochromatosis risk.
Blood donation is great for helping the body lower its risk of hemochromatosis, which happens when the body absorbs excess iron. Hemochromatosis can be caused by alcoholism and anemia.
- Lower cholesterol
Surprise surprise! Regular blood donation helps reduce blood cholesterol levels. This is because blood donation helps reduce iron in the blood and prevent fat deposition on the blood vessel walls.
- Stimulate production of new blood cells
Regular blood donation helps the body stimulate the production of new blood cells as the body works to replenish the lost blood cells.
