Some people donate blood every year, because they think that blood donation is beneficial. In fact, with the reduction of physical activity and the improvement of living standards, in the human body, there is accumulating more fat. The lipids of a lot of people are at a high level. For a long time, it is commonly known as “thick blood”. The results of the thick blood is that a layer and layer of fat attaches to the vessel wall of human body, and finally lead to atherosclerosis, the elasticity of blood vessels to reduce, forming cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease.
By physical examination, a lot of young people have been checked as hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases. However, donating blood can prevent high blood pressure and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, because after blood donation through normal drinking water, they are filled with blood volume, to make their own hemodilution to make lipid lowering, so that not only help yourself, but also indirectly benefit the society.
However, after blood donation, what can we eat to supply blood? You should eat at least 50 to 60 grams of protein every day to meet the body’s needs. In the foods contain more protein, milk is the top. One bottle of milk can provide 6 grams of protein for the body, followed by the egg. In terms of the nutritional values, eggs are a leader in the natural food, which contain almost all the raw materials needed by the hematopoiesis. Moreover, lean meat containing protein is also very rich; and in the lean meat, mutton is the best, which not only contains more good protein, but also is rich in iron and copper. Its iron content is six times than that of pork.
Furthermore, after blood donation, we should supply some iron element. Iron is an important component of the tissue hemoglobin after blood donation, it is more important to supply iron. The iron-rich foods include eggs, celery, and spinach, liver and so on. In addition, although folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin C are not components of the blood cells, however, blood cells cannot mature without them, so the lack of these vitamins can also affect the hematopoietic formation. These vitamins are widely present in green leafy vegetables, fruits and animal liver, kidney and other tissues.
Therefore, to eat fresh vegetables and fruits after blood donation is completely necessary. The completely recovery after blood donation takes about two to three weeks’ time. And the dietary adjustments at least should adhere to two weeks or so.
