Have you ever thought about the importance of having well-nourished blood?

I think it's one of those elements of our bodies that we neglect to think about often enough.

We're always talking about our livers, our digestion, our hormones, our brain. 

But what about that absolutely essential viscous liquid that carries essential nutrients everywhere in our bodies, our blood?

I think maybe it's because our blood moves, and isn't defined as one organ, that it can be easy to overlook and just take for granted. 

But if you've experienced anemia of any kind (like true symptomatic anemia) or a significant blood loss through hemorrhage or menstrual flooding for instance, you'll be well aware of how important this life force liquid actually is. 

Without our blood bringing oxygen, nutrients, hormones, immune cells and more to all the nooks and crannies of our bodies, we'd basically start to wither away.

Our blood matters. And the quality of it does, too.
