Helping Those in Need Lead Healthier Lives
What is plasma?
Plasma is a straw-colored liquid that carries red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Plasma is made up of water (about 90%), proteins and clotting factors (8%), and small amounts of salts, glucose (blood sugar) and lipids (fats). It helps to maintain a satisfactory and steady level of blood pressure as well as deliver proteins for blood clotting purposes and fighting various diseases.
