Not as well known, but equally important!
Blood consists of 55% yellow liquid, namely plasma, which, in turn, is made up of 91.5% water and 8.5% dissolved substances, such as nutrients, sugars, fats, salts, hormones, and vitamins. As such, plasma contains vital components for the blood coagulation process and the body’s defence against microorganisms.
Plasma can help people who have lost a lot of blood during a medical emergency. Patients with blood-coagulation disorders and new-borns with severe cases of jaundice also desperately need your plasma. Finally, plasma is used in the development of countless life-saving medications.
