Foods To Eat Before Donating Blood!

Foods To Eat Before Donating Blood!

There are several myths attached to blood donation. However, very few people are aware of the advantages of blood donation. The most interesting of these is not even the fact that it helps save lives, but the fact that it is beneficial for the donor as well! While blood donation is beneficial for the donor’s health, it can also be harmful if one is not prepared for it. Following are 4 key categories of food that a donor should consume before donating blood,

  1. Citric fruits - Citric fruits are rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C, enhances the iron absorption ability of blood. This is extremely helpful for any blood donor. Hence eating citric fruits or consuming their juice is always recommended before going in for a donation. You will often see orange juice being offered to donors who are feeling weak before they donate blood. Some examples of citric fruits include orange, kiwi, lemons, pineapple, berries, and melons.

  2. Food items rich in iron - One of the few risks of blood donation is the donor’s body becoming anaemic or deficient in iron. Hence, consuming food items that’ll raise your iron levels before you donate blood is a good idea. Non-heme and heme are the two kinds of iron present in food normally. The first is a plant-based iron and is thus present in vegetarian diets. The latter is present in meat and thus, a non-vegetarian diet. Absorption of heme iron is easier than non-heme. Hence, if you are a non-vegetarian, consume more iron-rich meats, while vegetarians are recommended to have more vegetables such as leafy spinach or broccoli is recommended to raise iron levels.

  3. A balanced meal with low fat - high-fat content in blood hampers the tests for an infection that are run on donors before accepting their blood. Hence you mustn’t have a high fat, heavy meal before you go to donate blood. Consume a low-fat meal that is well balanced. You can have low-fat milk and cereals or toast. You can also include fruits and vegetables suggested earlier. Avoid fried dishes or carbohydrate-rich items.

  4. Liquid diet - Becoming dehydrated is also a side effect of blood donation. Hence, donors are usually asked to have one or two cups of water before the blood is extracted. Drinking juice or other healthy liquids is always recommended. However, one should avoid coffee, tea, and other caffeinated products.

5 Health Benefits Of Having An Eco-friendly Lifestyle!

An eco-friendly lifestyle is important not just to save the planet, but also to save your own life. Protecting your environment indirectly enables you to elongate your life span. Breathing in better air, living in a cleaner atmosphere, eating better food, drinking purer water - all ensure a healthier body. Moreover, the improved aesthetics of a clean environment has positive psychological effects on your brain! Protecting your environment is of utmost importance in ensuring your good health. Following are 5 key health benefits of having an eco-friendly lifestyle,

  1. Better quality food - the quality of your environment directly affects the quality of food it produces - the same food that you consume! An eco-friendly lifestyle entails the consumption of more organic food which allows more nutrition and fewer pesticides or chemicals to enter your body. Hence, one becomes less exposed to carcinogenic compounds and other diseases causing or immunity hampering chemicals. Moreover, when one is producing their own vegetables, they end up consuming more seasonal items, which ensures a better diet.

  2. Better air quality - A breath of fresh air is often used to describe one’s favourite thing about the hills or forest or countryside. The very phrase makes one feel more refreshed. City air has multiple pollutants even in the absence of smog, that can cause diseases. Fresh or pure air not only contains more oxygen but also lacks harmful pollutants and microparticles that adversely affect one’s health. Hence, an environment-friendly lifestyle allows one to improve the quality of the air they breathe and thus, avoid life-threatening diseases.

  3. Better quality water - an improved environment ensures the supply of cleaner water, allowing one to consume its minerals while avoiding its pollutants. Cholera, diarrhoea, typhoid are just a few waterborne diseases that are transmitted via unclean drinking water.

  4. Increased physical activity - An eco-friendly human would automatically engage in more physical activity, as they’d attempt to choose walking or cycling over driving or using public transports whenever possible. Increased physical activity is directly correlated to one’s health and fitness.

  5. Psychological impact - the feeling that comes with saving the planet is sometimes enough to give one a sense of purpose. This can help individuals beat depression or excessive self-pitying. Additionally, the aesthetic results of one’s eco-friendly actions, automatically makes one happier.

Improving the condition of our environment not only improves our own health but also helps us ensure that our next generation can live healthy lives as well!

The Top Benefits of Donating Blood!

On World Blood Donors Day, people are urged to donate blood because their blood can save many lives. However, a very small percentage of eligible people (between the ages of 18 and 65) donate blood. There may be many reasons why they don’t- ignorance, fear of feeling sick at the sight of blood, misconceptions etc. But what if by donating blood, you not only help a fellow human being but also do a lot of good to your own body? Actually, there are a few health benefits of donating blood.

  1. Reduced risk of hemochromatosis - You get hemochromatosis when your body absorbs too much of iron. It could be a condition you are born with or it could result from alcoholism. But if you donate blood regularly, it will scale down the amount of iron in your body.

  2. Good for your organs - You may unwittingly be consuming an excessively iron-dense diet. While iron deficiency is dangerous, consuming too much iron can damage your liver because it has to get rid of the surplus iron. Iron may build up in your pancreas and heart. But donating 1 unit of blood every 3 months will prevent liver cirrhosis, arrhythmia, failing pancreas etc.

  3. Lowered risk of cancer - It was been observed that balanced level of iron in the body is linked to a higher possibility of preventing cancer. And donating blood is an excellent way to keep the iron level in your body stable.

  4. Speeding up of blood cell regeneration - Once you donate blood, there will be a small paucity of blood in your body. So you will immediately start making new blood cells and remove the old and dying ones. This healthy rate of regenerating blood cells is good for your body.

  5. Some minor health problems may come to light - Before you donate blood, you will undergo a few basic health tests like blood pressure, body temperature, pulse rate, weight check etc. if anything is out of the ordinary, the physician at the blood donation centre may ask you to visit a doctor. If you have contracted a viral or bacterial infection or developed hypertension, it will be diagnosed soon.

  6. Good for your mood - Other than all the health benefits, blood donation will also boost your mental health. You know that the blood you donated will help others and may even save someone’s life. So your altruistic act will make you feel good about yourself.

Blood donation is a win-win scenario. Someone will benefit from your kindness and your health too will thank you for it.
