3 Benefits of Donating Blood

1. You get a free physical.
Before giving blood, you must get a quick physical to measure your temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin levels. After giving blood, a lab takes your blood to do 13 tests for infectious diseases.

2. You will have a balanced iron level
Five grams of iron in the blood is healthy. When you donate a unit of blood, you lose about a quarter of a gram of iron. You regain that iron from the food you eat in the weeks after you donate blood. Having too much iron could affect your blood vessels. Lowering iron may also reduce the risk of a heart attack.

3. The feeling you get knowing you are saving someone’s life.
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to someone else. It is the gift of life. You become a real-life superhero. It’s a quick, easy way to give back to your community and feel good about yourself!
