Blood building Foods
Our bodies are like an automobile, in order for an automobile to move gas must be added or that vehicle will not move no matter how hard you press the gas pedal while turning the ignition switch.
This happened to me a few years ago. I did not realize that the vehicle I was driving was low on fuel. The vehicle began to shut down and the wheel locked so all I could do was pull to the side of the road. I am sure this may have happened to some of you before, if not try to avoid getting in this kind of position because it is not a good feeling.
So it is with our blood, every organ depends on blood to function at its best.
The purpose of blood
Nutrients and our blood
Do we need blood? and what is the purpose of blood? the good book, the holy bible says that life is in the blood and that is so true, like the automobile example given above if there is no gas in the car no matter how fancy or expensive that car maybe, that car will not start because the gas is the life of the car
it causes the car to start, it causes the car to function and so it is with our bodies. Without blood the body will not function, the organs will lock up, and eventually, the body will die.
The purpose of the blood is to carry nutrients throughout the body ensuring that every organ is taken care of there for it is very important that we include foods in our diet that will do our bodies a whole lot of good.
Oxygen and our Blood
In order for us to survive, we must continue to take in oxygen, as we take in this oxygen or breath of fresh air as we call it, this air or oxygen makes its way in and through our lungs being dissolved by water then taken by the blood throughout the body.
White blood cells
White blood cells are like the police of the body, their job is to defend the body against germs, bacteria, and viruses. These cells are hard at work to ensure that the body is safe at all times. White blood cells circulate throughout the bloodstream.
Here again, we see the importance of blood. As we said earlier the life is in the blood, just as our vehicles depend on that gas or fuel to function so do our bodies need blood in order for us to survive.
Foods that build the blood
With all of that said we have now reached the part where we will look at foods that build the blood. Our diet plays such an important part in our overall health because without a proper diet, without consuming the right foods our bodies will become sickly and we will be faced with many health issues.
The unfortunate thing, however, is that many are facing these issues and paying the price big time. I read an article many years ago where a statement was made “with our forks and knives we dig our graves” sad to say but for many this statement is true. But there is hope, the good news is we can add a twist to that statement by using our forks and knives to regain or maintain our health.
1. Beans are a good source that can help to build blood.
2. Green leafy vegetables are good also, it is good to include these in salads.
4. Dried prunes are great, I just love the taste.
6. Adding fruits to your diet is a good choice.
Other foods that build blood
Other ways to build the blood
Other ways include the intake of iron and Vitamin B also having a good workout plan, walking, jogging, or engaging in activities that keep your heart rate up is good.
The final word
Our bodies are one of our greatest investments, therefore we should do all that we can to maintain good health because a little investment can go a long way.
